I was the key-note speaker at a recent Sheffield International Trade Forum event on ‘Working with Japan’ alongside David McWilliams from Withers&Rogers, who has been working with Japan for many years. I spoke about Japan as a business destination, the various routes to market and how people need to understand the Japanese to do business with them, giving delegates an insight into Japanese business culture.
