The Value Plan, in Japan: How to create future-proof products & services

Overview: 80% of executives still define marketing as "sales" or "advertising" and because of this, miss out on applying the full power and effectiveness of marketing within their organizations. This applies as much to individual entrepreneurs as it does to leaders of top multinational companies.

This seminar will explore the "secret" meaning of marketing, and how to immediately apply this understanding for optimal returns for your company, customers, employees, partners, society and the planet. Prof. Sugai will also introduce The Value Plan framework from his upcoming book of the same title.
