Announcement: We are pleased to announce the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Japan as a co-host to our speaker event! We look forward to networking with our colleagues from the ICCJ!
How do you fire your distributor and live to tell about it? How do you tear down a stodgy Japanese organization and rebuild a business powerhouse in its place? How do you go direct to the largest Japanese retailers as a foreign manufacturer, when you don’t speak Japanese?
If you would like to know the answer to these questions and more, don’t miss this unique opportunity to join the discussion with Japan CEO Antony Strianese of global Italian food giant Barilla. If you have ever eaten Italian cuisine anywhere in the world, chances are you have enjoyed Barilla’s products.
This is the ninth installment of the popular Conversation With series. Independent Business Committee vice-chair Steven Bleistein will begin an on-stage conversation with Antony Strianese, partway through which the audience will be invited to join in. Ample time will be given for questions from the audience. No slides and no speeches. Just lively discussion, your questions, and lots of business wisdom. If you are a manager involved in any kind of Japan market expansion or development, or a leader looking to remake his or her own business, this is an event not to be missed.
