Alex Hickman (Chartwell’s CEO) and Raleigh Addington (Chartwell’s Asia Pacific MD) are back from a marketing trip to Tokyo (just missing the Cherry Blossom!). They met with a number of existing clients including UBS, JP Morgan and Schroders, and also the British Embassy who have linked Chartwell with some new, exciting opportunities in the Japanese market. Raleigh is already planning his next trip there.
Chartwell also met with many high profile speakers, who are frequently called upon to offer thought-provoking analyses of the world’s third largest economy, and where it is heading. Featured below are just a few of the great Japanese speakers now included on Chartwell’s ever-growing roster:
- Clay Chandler – Asia Editor for Fortune (2001-08) and McKinsey & Company (2008-13), and a leading analyst of Asia’s key economies.
- Ichiro Fujisaki – Japan’s Ambassador to the USA (2008-12), who provides fascinating insight into Japanese foreign policy.
- Takuji Okubo – Chief Economist (Tokyo) for Société Générale (2010-12), and a leading Japanese economist who argues that Japan is heading towards a collapse in 2017.
- Eisuke Sakakibara – Japan’s Vice Minister of Finance (1997-99), during which time he earned the nickname “Mr. Yen” for his influence over currency markets.
- Heizo Takenaka – Minister for Financial Services, Economic and Fiscal Policy in Japan (2001-05), and a specialist on the Japanese economy and political landscape.
Raleigh is based in Hong Kong and will be in travelling Singapore, Seoul, Shanghai and Beijing in the coming weeks. He’d be delighted to tell you more about the thought leadership from the area, and help you plan for your next event: e-mail him at email@example.com or give him a call on +852 5512 9714.
