SALES IN JAPAN – Cross-Cultural Selling in Japan

This will be a high quality event, filled with people I’ve gone out to my network here in Japan to invite. This event is for anyone wanting to mix with a niche group of GoodPeople involved in generating sales and/or responsible for revenue growth, in Japan.

Speakers will share their personal experiences garnered from their decades of time working here in Japan, including best practices on selling cross-culturally in Japan as a foreigner working for Japanese firm, or Japanese working for foreign Headquartered firm.

Speaker Profiles:

Dan Harris is a principal at MAP / Market Action Partners, a Tokyo-based firm focused on corporate training, coaching and business consultancy. He and his team start with two viewpoints: What will be effective? How to get ‘permanent improvement’? (I.e, getting a client’s staff to adopt
changes into their daily work, for long-term results.) MAP is particularly strong in helping B2B
sales departments in Japan improve their performance

Dan’s experience in B2B sales, marketing and training spans 35+ years; 30+ in Japan
and 5 in New York. In positions at Sony, SAS Institute, Salomon Brothers, and PacificData, he
spearheaded the introduction of new products, created & executed lead generation programs,
conducted innumerable sales calls, trained sales & other staff, and provided marketing &
operational support. He has been active at the American Chamber of Commerce in Japan, and
has given many presentations to various organizations and associations.
Dan received his BA from Sophia University in Tokyo, his MBA from Harvard, and
speaks/reads/writes Japanese. He does day hikes, dances salsa, plays tennis, and enjoys sumo.
His two children, raised in Japan, are at early stages of their careers. Dan grew up in Oklahoma,
USA, and has permanent residency status for Japan.
Dan can be reached at [email protected].

David Sweet is the author of “Sweet Sales: Successful Sales with Synergy“.
David started selling when he was 8 years old. At that time, he learned many of the lessons that he now passes along to sales professionals around the world. He has navigated the bureaucratic and political mazes of the U.S. Government and has spent two decades in Asia consulting for Top Tier companies. He also started the important mental disciplines of karate and marathon running. This combination has become a good defense mechanism in case of a poor sales call.

He has focused on selling in Tokyo for the past two decades and is the founder and CEO of the human capital consultancy, FocusCore Group. He is also a keynote speaker and seminar leader and author of Sweet Sales, Recruit!: Becoming the Top-Biller, as well as having published several articles and was most recently cited in Changing Jobs Without a Resume Using Social Media for his expertise in using social networking for recruitment in Japan. He holds a Ph.D. in Leadership Development and a M.A. in Communications from Regis University in Denver, Colorado. He is also a Certified Executive Coach for the Center for Executive Coaching in Sarasota, Florida, an ICF accredited organization.

And in sales calls, he seldom has the need to pull out his black belt or run out of sales meetings.
