Creating an Organization that Can Initiate Change

A special Zoom webinar by COACH A Inc., JCCI, and Nippon Club

Thursday, July 30, 2020/6:00-7:00PM/$5 Members/$10 General

"Change before you have to." This is a famous quote by the late Jack Welch. The COVID-19 pandemic is changing many aspects of the corporate world. However, dependent on whether the leader is feeling "compelled to change" or is "initiating change" stepping ahead of the future at this moment, will make a marked difference to the post-pandemic state of an organization. What kind of organization is capable of initiating change? How can such an organization be created? It is timely now to consider these important questions. This webinar will be facilitated by Yoshiyuki Suzuki, CEO of COACH A Co., Ltd.

Please register directly below based on your memberships status. Zoom invitation will be sent upon payment confirmation.

Supporting COVID-19 Workers, JCCI & Nippon Club Team up to Provide Bento Boxes

While the Nippon Club & JCCI office is currently closed, we have asked ourselves what we can do to best help our city in the meantime, and we've decided to launch our project, “Let’s Support COVID-19 Fighters!” where we provide specially prepared bento lunch boxes to our brave, frontline medical workers who are fighting against the virus to keep us safe. 120 lunch boxes will be delivered once a week starting from May 7th to various hospitals (60 lunch boxes each). We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the support we’ve already received from our member companies, and we hope to continue to deliver our bento boxes to those who need it most.

While we are currently providing our service to local hospitals and facilities as the Mount Sinai Hospital, Albert Einstein Montefiore Medical Center, and Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, we hope to gradually expand our project to other hospitals soon.

It is the support from people like you that we can continue to deliver more bento boxes over the long term. Please consider making a donation here:
