Our gatherings


We have several types of gatherings but we always strive to assemble the best speakers on the topic in Tokyo, and guests are carefully selected to generate maximum insight and relationship-building potential.

Our Salons help you understand politics and economics.
Our Custom Member Lunches are set up for members to meet one particular person to discuss one particular topic.
Our Peer MBA modules combine peer mentoring and best practice sharing our specific, practical topics, such as improving B2B sales in Japan, or understanding digitalization.
