Fiscal year 2011 seems to have been the year of corporate scandals and governance mishaps in Japan. Olympus, Daio Paper, AIJ, Kyushu Electric, others....you name the type of scandal, it may well have occurred in 2011. As a result, policymakers have voiced serious concern about the need to improve corporate governance because "foreign money is deserting the market".

Managing the Media in a Crisis

The CCCJ has arranged for media training specialist David Wagner to deliver a thought-provoking session on what companies need to bear in mind when a crisis hits.

Issues only become crises when the media get involved - and the media have enormous power to affect the outcome of the crisis and the future of your business. Favorable media coverage can trigger positive actions among customers, investors, employees and other stakeholders. Negative exposure can inflict damage that takes years to reverse.
