Since I became a consultant at Skylight, I was often assigned to many international projects. In Skylight’s projects, the distance to the clients is very close, and I could see and feel the differences of management style by country such as India and USA. I found these companies are good at management in terms of motivating employees and leading them to the right direction. I learned a lot about how to manage diverse people from different backgrounds through the projects.
Now more and more members are joining Skylight from foreign countries, and my past experience comes in handy greatly when I work with them. This is unprecedented trial for us and I hardly say everything is perfect so far, but we believe our steps become the way for next generation.
We established consulting subsidiary in USA (Skylight America Inc.) in 2019 and I became CEO. One of the core businesses is “cross-border” business support. I’ve met many prospective clients who seek for business expansion to foreign countries but haven’t succeeded. I see the possibilities of leading their business to success if Skylight can provide support locally and that’s why I set the company outside of Japan.
My ultimate goal is to support clients’ businesses at the whole 200 countries in the world. Having diverse team will be a strong weapon, and enable us to provide new value which Skylight hasn’t had before. I’m eager to work with passionate teammates with different mindsets and backgrounds.
