Join us for a special discussion with Sarah L. Casanova, President and CEO of McDonald’s Holdings. This event will be an opportunity to gain insights into Casanova’s leadership journey in Japan, how she guided the company through a major turnaround, and what the future has in store for McDonald’s here.
In an informal ‘fireside chat’ format, we’ll dive into her passion for the McDonald’s brand and what next steps she believes will contribute to an even better McDonald’s in Japan.
The ACCJ-Kansai Business Programs Committee invites you to learn firsthand how to weather challenging times and build a sustainable future. We will also explore Japan’s progress on workplace diversity and the way that work style can link to success in today’s market.
