I dedicate myself to solving intractable corporate and personal issues — legal, political and logistic. During my 40 years in Japan I have attended law school, worked inside the National Diet, worked as general counsel on government affairs for foreign corporations (including Apple Inc., General Motors Company, The Coca-Cola Company, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Limited, Tokyo English Life Line and Amway) and worked with embassies and individuals such as George H.W. Bush and many others. I am the host of Tokyo on Fire, Langley Esquire’s YouTube channel, which covers Japanese news and politics.
I am the founder of the Healing through Giving Foundation (HtGF), a non-profit mental wellness organization for trauma survivors. We offer programs that help restore and nurture our clients’ inner strength and confidence. Outside of my non-profit work, I maintain a business management consulting practice that has a special focus on Japan market entry, branding, marketing and sales strategies. I came from Toronto, where I experienced a diverse and inclusive culture that I believe is the basis for open communication, creativity, innovation and prosperity. I have joined the CCCJ to expand my network and find opportunities for collaboration.
I am an assistant professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Juntendo University School of Medicine. I spent my childhood holidays in Vancouver studying English at language school. I studied medicine at Juntendo University, and graduated from Harvard School of Public Health after obtaining a medical degree in Japan.
Being raised in Hong Kong, a culturally diverse city, gave me the opportunity to learn about a variety of different business cultures, and I feel that the CCCJ gives me the same opportunity. The company I work for, The Intern Group, is a leading international internship organizer that partners with more than 50 leading universities around the world and sends highly motivated students to take part in internship programs in more than 15 cities, including Toronto and Tokyo. We provide year-round, all-inclusive unpaid internship programs to employers free of charge. Let me know if you want to learn more about our services.
