Naoki Sakai Salon “Design Management Club” New Year’s Party

There will be a New Year’s party at Naoki Sakai’s salon “Design Management Club” in Conceptor.


The venue will be the luxurious restaurant “Etruski” in Omotesando, run by Shigemitsu Takami, a great senior.

I will be talking with Shusaku Hirota (CEO of Henge Inc.) for about 45 minutes at the beginning of the party!
The first 80 people to register are invited to attend, and this time non-members are also welcome. You’ll enjoy both a sumptuous meal and a lecture. Please read below for an overview and registration.
When I had a preliminary meeting with Mr. Hirota the other day to discuss the content of my presentation, I was thinking about talking about his latest book, “What Are Marketers Around the World Thinking Now? Mr. Hirota suggested, “How about using ‘hedonism’ as a keyword for After Corona?” I was wondering if I should talk about “What are marketers around the world thinking now?
This is your area of expertise!🤣
It would be interesting to see the end of the “abstinence” era of Corona and the return of “hedonism” like in the 1980s in 2023. I will challenge myself by reading the book recommended by Mr. Sakai, “From Chocolate to Heroin” (published in 1986 / Author: Andrew Weil, Winfred Loosen) as my assigned book for winter vacation (laugh).
In case you are wondering, Shusaku Hirota founded Henge Inc. in August 2018, which specializes in corporate brand development, after working as a director at NHK, marketing at Dentsu, and new business development and brand consulting services. Looking forward to ~.
