Participants' Voice


Banker, Singapore

What I learned in this 2 day Diversity Manager course is much deeper than what I learned in my 5 years employment at my bank


HR consultant, Vietnam

My company now encounters many problems with non-Japanese staff. Kawatani sensei was able to take the complex and make it simple. I was surprised that he pointed out areas where I could do things better. The session is very much tuned in to where I was. Sensei was very approachable and encouraging, and it was really fun! I learnt the concrete steps to connect with Japanese people. I hope this seminar will reach more people and wish every foreigner success at Japanese companies.


Intercultural Coach, Language Teacher, USA

Highly recommendable! I just recently participated in one of the sessions myself and found it extremely insightful. Both intercultural trainers and professionals doing business with Japan will find these sessions incredibly helpful. No matter how much you think you know, there is always something new to discover. Never stop learning and discovering!


Manufacturing, production control, Malaysia

Thanks to this program, I have been able to understand, for the first time, what my Japanese president was thinking. Before the program, we had all kinds of misperceptions about each other that were hard to untie. I hope Mr. Kawatani will continue to serve as a bridge between us and top management. Thank you very much.
