At this interactive online seminar, Megumi Taoka will deliver insights on how to overcome cultural differences and communicate effectively in cross-cultural business settings.

Ms. Taoka, a leading expert in the field of diversity and inclusion in Japan, will introduce fundamental concepts through a short presentation, with particular focus on challenges between Japan and other countries. This will be followed by an interactive Q&A with participants.
