Today (September 2), I ran one of the workshop sessions at the JSA Forum 2017. This year marks the 25th year of this event and the topic selected was “New work style-role of secretaries/administrative professionals”.
Key note speaker was Mr. Makoto Kigawa, chairman of Yamato Holdings and special session was given by Y. Suga, cabinet member.

After these two plenary sessions, three parallel sessions were held. The title of my session was “In the face of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, how should you respond?”  In order to engage participants, I tried to mix my lecture with their discussion among themselves. I asked participants to think and share their thoughts with other members.

At the reception following the parallel sessions, I managed to sell all the books I brought (not that many) at discount price and autograph addressed to them.

At the reception, I  heard the remarks by the Founder (I believe she is one of the founders) about how the association was established  50 years ago! etc. as well as remarks  by the current president among others.

In addition, I  exchanged cards with many participants. I was impressed with the organization and scale of this event. I am grateful for the opportunity to be one of the speakers. I sincerely hope that my talk gave some ideas for them to think over.
