I was invited to the symposium at Ritsumeikan University College of Image Arts and Sciences as a guest speaker.

Other 2 guest speakers are one of Japan's top TVCM Director, Mr.Shinya Nakajima and Creative Director from Asatsu-DK, Mr.Takashi Yokokawa. Theme of my speech was "How to voice the brand : WK's way of branding".

Wrap dinner organized by students. I am so impressed with their strong interests in advertising industry and also with their warm hospitality. I feel something interesting is surely happening here in Kyoto, ancient capital of Japan. I thank Professor Hosoi and Associate Prof. Nakamura who made this symposium happen. Professor Koizumi who is my neighbor on the right used to work for ad agency.
