The conference offered an extensive professional and social programme. Professionally, we heard from leading authorities such as Heizo Takenaka who provided an in-depth insight in to the Japanese and Asian economies and Bob Murray, MBA, PhD on The Science of Leading High-
Performance Teams. The schedule also allowed for significant networking time and breakout sessions; including a special trip to the Tokyo courts for our Disputes members; Australasia workshop and business and practice management session.
Whilst socially, there was a variety of member hosted events, opening drinks reception at The Ritz Carlton and walking tour of the city. The evening dinner was hosted at the Gonpachi Nishi-Azabu, otherwise known as ‘the Kill Bill restaurant’. The restaurant gave itself a name when its beautiful decor inspired director, Quentin Tarantino, for the set of his blockbuster ‘Kill Bill’. Due to its big name it has been visited by many an important figure, including George W. Bush. The Friday optional excursion to the Robot show was a unique entertainment experience for the attendees to see a very different side to Japan. Whilst, our Saturday excursion to Nikko was an historic and scenic retreat in the
heart of Japan, nestled in the mountains north of Tokyo.
