Presentation Details

Silicon Valley has become a powerful hub of innovation known all over the world. Japan-based companies in the past have not had a strong presence there, but that is changing. Prime Minister Abe's visit to Silicon Valley last year was the first ever by a Prime Minister, and more and more Japanese companies are establishing businesses there. I will focus this talk on one basic and fundamental aspect of working in / with Silicon Valley: communication. Communication in Silicon Valley is quite different than in Japan. If you have experienced such challenges, there may be value for you in this talk.
