President, Kentaro office Former Corporate Senior Vice President, Fujitsu Marketing

From 1966 to 1998 I participated in the first cycle of Henry Mintzberg’s IMPM (International Master Program for Managers). I have been promoting Coaching Ourselves in Japan now for more than 10 years. Currently more than 2000 managers in Japan have completed this program; in Fujitsu alone, more than 500 managers.

Building on my 40 years of experience at Fujitsu HR, I recently established my office, Kentaro office, in Tokyo in 2016. I am promoting two initiatives which are peer learning systems in Fujitsu Group companies. I started Fujitsu Marketing In-house Business School with Yokohma Business School part of Yokohama National Universtiy. This in-house business school has just celebrated 6 years! Another initiative is Fujitsu Social Science Laboratory In-house MOT School which I designed and started this past April with Tokyo University of Science. Many CoachingOurselves modules are being used in these In-house business schools.

I am additionally an associated research scholar of the Institute of Economic Research, Hitotsubashi University, and a member of the International Advisory Board of Exeter Business School, University of Exeter.
