World Class Speaking Night at Oakwood!

Tokyo Midtown - Wednesday November 14

We are pleased to invite you to our next monthly World Class Speaking Night! This is a series of informal and fun events for people interested in improving their speaking, communication and presentation skills. The events feature special guest speakers, World Class Speaking alumni and some entertainment—this time including a profile of and live music by acclaimed, Tokyo-based Canadian saxophonist Andy Wulf !

Special Guest Speaker: Shintaro Nakagawa

Brand Manager for Ben & Jerry’s, UNILEVER Japan

Mr. Nakagawa will speak about the unconventional brand communication and guerrilla marketing strategies used to launch a new ice cream brand in the lucrative—but highly competitive Japanese market. And you will get a free tasting of the latest and greatest ice cream brand to reach Japan!—courtesy of Ben & Jerry's.

Launched in April 2012, the brand strategy is already proving highly successful. With 40% of consumers eating ice cream every week and some US$3 billion of annual sales— Japan is the world’s second largest market for ice cream, so the stakes are high.

Ben & Jerry's is one of the world’s major ice cream brands and now operates over 800 stores in 27 countries. Having started his career at Procter and Gamble in 2001, Mr. Nakagawa has extensive Brand Management experience, including with P&G’s Max Factor and Attento brands.

If you haven't already been there, you may want to visit the Ben & Jerry's flagship scoop shop in Omotesando Hills to see what the excitement is all about! http://www.benjerry.jp/
