June 27, 2014,11:00 +0900(JST) FY2014 National Special Agents Conference
On June 12, we held a national special agents conference, inviting special agents that are doing businesses with our Smart Infrastructure Systems Sales Unit and Electronics Sales Unit.
Held every year at this time, this conference serves as an important opportunity for us to explain our business policies and exchange information so that both special agents and we can expand our businesses. At the conference, I expressed my appreciation for each agent’s cooperation, and presented letters of appreciation to agents who had demonstrated outstanding performances.
Some of the participants this year were from China. After sharing information on the country’s current economic situation, we encouraged one another, saying that although there are problems to solve, China is still a large market and we should continue cooperating to expand our businesses. By the way, one of the Chinese participants used to do track and field like I did, which made me feel as if I had met a long lost friend.
To know the situation on the business front lines, feedback from special agents is invaluable. Speaking with special agents gives me a perspective different from what I would have if I were listening to reports by our staff members. I would like to continue securing closer communication with each special agent in order to share much more information, promote sales operations ahead of market changes, and make our win-win relationships even stronger.
