Tokyo Executives would like to thank everyone who attended our “Young Executives Networking Party” on May 1 at Legato Shibuya.
With over 60 young executives in attendance, we were delighted to work with the YCN (Young Chamber Network), a sister group of Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Japan, for the first time and we hope to work together again.
Below are some photos from the event, we hope that next time all of our “young executives” will be able to join again!
Tokyo Executives would like to thank everyone who attended our event titled “’Creating a Sustainable Business Model‘” with special presentation by Ray Bemner OBE, CEO of Unilever Japan last week. With over 40 executives in attendance, this was one of our most interesting events ever. Working with our host sponsor, Servcorp Japan, for the first time was a delight, and we were so honored to welcome Mr Bremner, as our special guest speaker. His presentation was both entertaining and informative, using video and Unilever’s “Sustainable Living Plan” to illustrate how “small actions can make a BIG difference”.
Video and photos from the event can be found here:
Tokyo Executives would like to thank everyone who attended our “Innovations at Google” event. Working with the BCCJ for the first time was a delight and we hope to work together again.
Masumi Reynder`s presentation was found to be both informative and entertaining, using video of Bill Nye the Science guy to illustrate her points, and referring to previous Google projects and ideas to explain how the many Google tools we use today are the way they are.
It was a good time had by all, many people experienced some of their personal best scores, and the weather coincided perfectly with our schedule, raining only when getting back to the clubhouse for lunch and then clearing up right as the tee times for the back nine holes started!
Below are some other pictures from the event, we hope that next year everyone will be able to join again!

The theme will be “Risk Aversion During Crisis”. We plan to focus mainly on the Lehman Shock and the 3/11 earthquake and tsunami to use as examples for how businesses in Tokyo stayed in business and what they are doing now to avert risk for future crisis`s.
Cafe Celi is a new style French Cafe/Restaurant inspired by and produced on behalf of Madam Celine. The atmosphere is warm and friendly giving one the feeling of homely comfort, with hints of leather designs dating back to the classic masterpieces crafted by Madam Celine while yet modern enough to provide a space for creative expression and making use of Eco friendly materials. The interior highlights a touch of fashion quality making one feel stylish and yet not overly extravagant, therefore easy enough for anybody to drop in for a quick and delicious meal without having to be formal.
The event will be held from 4:00pm to 6:00pm, during this time you will be able to help yourself to the food that is out and any non-alcoholic beverage. The menu is shown below.
We hope to see you there, we plan for this to be an informative and enjoyable experience for all attending.
