Building a better working world
"As a business leader, I’m constantly questioning what I can pass on to the next generation, and whether I’m actually doing it.
I haven’t limited myself to consulting for individual companies, choosing instead to focus on how, as a professional services firm, we can help eliminate concerns and overcome the challenges facing society in order to build a better working world in Japan.
As professionals, our aim is to make Japan even stronger in terms of its environmental challenges, safety and security."
