Business risks - possibilities that could prevent you from achieving your business goals - can expose us to incredible amounts of stress and uncertainty.

As a leader in Tokyo, what keeps you awake at night?

  • Industry change?
  • Legal responsibilities?
  • Economic conditions?
  • Global security?
  • Human resource issues?
  • Health and safety?
  • Cyber attacks?
  • Work life balance?
  • Not being understood?
  • Toxic work environment?

On the afternoon of June 14, we will hold an interactive workshop to examine and explore the key issues that are creating stress and uncertainty for BCCJ member firms in 2018.


This is an opportunity to share your concerns with others who are operating in similar situations, and work together to formulate solutions for getting a good night’s sleep.
