Principal Advisor to The Kelly Slater Wave Company Discusses "Making Waves in Japan"

Updated Feb. 6, 2018
On Tuesday, January 30, Doshisha Business School was honored to have Mr. Brian Nelson, Principal Advisor to The Kelly Slater Wave Company and former chairman of Value Commerce, speak with our 1st and 2nd year MBA students about "Making Waves in Japan."

In addition to explaining the vision behind the Kelly Slater Wave Company and its interest in Japan, Mr. Nelson also shared his insights on innovation and entrepreneurship in Japan. He spent more than an hour fielding questions from students, and helped us to understand not only the positive upside potential of managing a business here, but also many of the challenges. Mr. Nelson took extra time to highlight some of the keys to fostering a positive mindset when dealing with real business challenges, and also helped our students to create either a 3, 5, or 7-year plan for their future.

On behalf of the entire Doshisha Business School community, we would like to thank Mr. Nelson for sharing his insights and for taking so much of his time to help us improve our understanding of the Japanese market and how we can begin to make our own waves here.
