KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

PRESENTATION 1

DISRUPTING JAPAN
How a new generation of start-up entrepreneurs are changing Japan's economy
by Tim Romero

Tim Romero is a Tokyo-based innovator, author, entrepreneur, and podcaster who has started several companies since coming to Japan more than 20 years ago. He is deeply involved in Japan's start-up community as an investor, founder and mentor.

There is a new wave of both home-grown entrepreneurship and an increased openness to Western technology companies that is already beginning to fundamentally change Japan for the better—which is the topic for his talk.

He is a Representative Director of Engine Yard, K.K., an application developer; writes a bilingual blog on startups and Japan market entry, and hosts the Disrupting Japan podcast as a labour of love: http://www.disruptingjapan.com/

DELIGHTING CUSTOMERS
How do you train and improve your team's customer service skills?

by Cory McGowan

Cory McGowan is HR Manager at the Tokyo American Club—designing and delivering training programs for 900 employees across two locations—to ensure top customer service and satisfied customers.

Cory has extensive experience in developing and managing training programs, and how to generate significant revenue through quality service. How to train and improve your team's customer service skills can be a challenge, however, and he will share some of his experience and tips in this regard.

Cory is used to work in a multinational environment and speaks 4 languages fluently! In addition to his native English, he also masters Spanish, French and Japanese—so can easily deal with customers from many corners of the world.
