How Tokuya is building a better working world
“No companies are running their businesses without concerns or agendas; that is, they feel a gap between how they would like to be and how they are. Our existential value is to fill the gap. I am helping them achieve their missions by taking on their agendas as mine, with a sense of ownership and whole-of-the EY organizarion capability. I feel extremely happy when I see clients’ happy faces.”
