Legal & Finance for the SME Executive - What the Foreign Executive Needs to Know about Business in Japan
Being a successful entrepreneur in Japan takes more than drive and business savvy. While one does not have to be an accountant, lawyer, human resource & managerial expert all rolled into one; there is a certain amount of knowledge of running a business in Japan that one needs to stay abreast of in order to succeed. What you don’t know CAN hurt you!
This seminar is tailored to meet the needs of foreign small businesses owners and executives that are at the planning, implementing and growing stages of their business.
One afternoon seminar cannot promise a silver bullet; however, it can provide invaluable information on how to become a more successful SME executive in Japan.
