Back by Popular Demand: Now You Know Your… G-H-Is (?) - A Wide-Ranging Panel Commentary with Jesper Koll, Dave McCaughan, and Bill Hall. Moderated by Patrick Newell
Announcing the third installment of this very popular panel event where some of Japan’s most seasoned experts comment on a wide range of topics guided by letters of the alphabet, this time G, H, and I. Economics, health, marketing & education are just a few of the areas to be covered in this crossfire short-answer format.
The earlier ABC & DEF events sold out quickly, and garnered overwhelmingly positive feedback. Make sure to register early and don’t miss this chance to hear the latest thoughts and Japan experts!
