Leaders in Japan are usually under pressure to increase sales efficiency, provide better visibility on sales activity, and boost revenue. To make this happen, their headquarters tend to push for global initiatives to be implemented locally. But in an environment where resistance to change is high, imposing global—or even local—initiatives can have a negative impact on sales team motivation and retention, which for many are already a cause for concern.
If you are looking for fresh ideas on how to achieve these changes, don’t miss this conversation with one of Japan’s most innovative and successful corporate leaders: Ryo Tsutsumi. Drawing on his experience executing global initiatives at companies such as PepsiCo and Johnson & Johnson, Tsutsumi will outline a strategy that, in one case, helped him grow his division at four times the average pace of corporate growth in Japan.
Sales Development Committee Co-Chair Carlo La Porta will begin an on-stage conversation with Tsutsumi and then invite the audience to join in partway through. Ample time will be given for questions from the audience. No slides. No speeches. Just lively discussion, your questions, and lots of business wisdom to support you in growing your business.
