  • Is your organization grappling with the financial and business challenges presented by COVID-19?

When COVID-19 hit, companies in Japan got their teams together. Through Japanese style innovation, they brainstormed solutions to their most pressing challenges and strategies to keep employees and clients safe. It’s working.

Japan is a new destination for us. Our President has travelled to Japan 7 times and scoped out a range of cultural experiences that can be incorporated into team building and executive retreats.

COVID-19 travel restrictions are in effect.
