What does it take to be consumers’ first choice for premium car tires in a market dominated by entrenched domestic players? How do you contend with Japanese competitors with massive distribution infrastructures? How do you become a Japanese auto manufacturer’s go-to standard for new cars as a non-Japanese company despite a dizzying array of domestic Japanese choices — to say nothing of being a top choice for aircraft tires in Japan? How does R&D in Japan enable your business to lead the world in other markets? And why is it that there are more three-star Michelin restaurants in Japan than in France?
If you would like to know the answer to these questions and more, don’t miss this unique opportunity to join the discussion with Nihon Michelin CEO Paul Perriniaux.
This is the eighth installment of the popular Conversation With series. Independent Business Committee vice-chair Steven Bleistein will begin an on-stage conversation with Paul Perriniaux, partway through which the audience will be invited to join in. Ample time will be given for questions from the audience. No slides and no speeches. Just lively discussion, your questions, and lots of business wisdom. If you are a manager involved in any kind of strategic business in Japan, or a leader seeking to take your business to a new level, this is an event not to be missed.
