Presentation 1 with Teru Clavel:
"Efforts to globalize younger Japan ... and why we should care"
In the face of Japan's shifting demographics, public debt, Abenomics, and the 2020 Olympics, there has been increased talk of cultivating "globaljinzai" or global human resources. But is Japan's next generation prepared to be global and outward facing? Who are the players involved (students, parents, teachers, MEXT), what are the related government policies, and what are the associated issues of cultural values and national identity? After a presentation of recent developments and research, let's discuss efforts on how to move Japan forward.
Teru Clavel is a global education consultant and education writer specializing in the intersection of education, parenting, and globalization. With a regular education column in The Japan Times, Teru writes about provocative educational topics that have not been previously reported or publicly discussed in efforts to improve the educational outcomes of the next generation. As a consultant, she has advised hundreds of families, led seminars, and conducted numerous studies on: international and multicultural education, multiple language acquisition, education theory, navigating school choice, school reform, and educational assessments. In the last decade, she has been raising three children in four global cities (New York, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and now Tokyo) in local public and private schools. Her family speaks English, Japanese, Chinese, and French fluently. www.teruclavel.com
Presentation 2 with Dr. Parissa Haghirian:
"Japanese Consumer Dynamics"
From the big spenders of the late 80s bubble economy, Japanese consumers have become price-conscious, wealthy and sophisticated shoppers, demanding the world`s best service and most innovative products. The presentation discusses the development of Japanese consumerism, particularities of Japanese consumer behaviour, new consumer groups and emerging trends in the Japanese market.
Parissa Haghirian has studied Japan from an anthropological and business perspective for the last 20 years. She holds a degree (MA) in Japanese Anthropology (University of Vienna, Austria), a degree (MA, PhD) in International Management (Vienna University of Business and Economics, Austria). Dr. Haghirian worked for 15 years in Japanese organizations and became an associate professor of International Management at Sophia University in 2006. Since becoming a professor Dr. Haghirian has researched numerous aspects of Japanese business practices and Japanese consumer behavior, published several books and many articles on the topic and organized conferences and speeches on Japanese management in Europe and Japan. She has taught undergraduate, graduate and MBA level classes on the subject of Japanese business practices consulted with numerous Western and native Japanese companies in Tokyo.
Presentation 3 with Marc Alexandre Cartient
“Today is an exceptional day, as it always should be”
At the beginning, everything Marc experienced in Japan was an adventure. However, no matter how far he ventured or however many things he tried, ultimately the language barrier prevented him from enjoying the full experience.
Like a lot of other foreigners, it took him years of study and the help of his Japanese wife to really see what this country has to offer. But not everyone has the same chance. There are concierge services in major hotels available, but due to the cost, only a few people can afford them.
Marc will introduce the Odigo Project; a platform that connects people who are willing to share a bit of their knowledge with travelers and future expats who are coming in Japan. The purpose is to help them have the best local experience without a guide or translator and make them said:“Today is an exceptional day, as it always should be”
Marc arrived in Japan almost 7 years ago as a single expat. He is now married to a Japanese wife and has two children. He splits his life between Tokyo and Shiga-ken (Kyoto), making him a nomadic entrepreneur. After quitting his company, he became a freelancer and co-founded Respond Media; a digital products company.
