Outline:
This was the sixth Canada Means Business event and our first collaboration with the ACCJ Chubu Chapter Women in Business Committee . The event was focused on " challenges faced by people who work, and overcoming them ". We had 4 speakers who have had some sort of challenge that they overcame (to do with being a working woman, or helping a woman work by being a house husband etc.). We gave each speaker 10 minutes to introduce themselves and talk about the issue that they had and how they got through it. Speakers and participants were divided into 4 groups and everyone could ask questions to the speaker and share their own experiences.

Review:
A lot of positive feedback from attendees was received. Most of them felt it was a unique and informative event. When we held discussion time, people could exchange their ideas and experience with speakers in a friendly atmosphere. The dinner and networking time at the beginning also helped to get acquainted.

Thanks to the speakers from a variety of fields, the discussions were quite dynamic. Some people hoped the future event would have more time to talk. Maybe such event could be held on a weekend.

Each discussion table had a volunteer interpreter, so people could feel comfortable speaking in both languages.

The weather was sunny and we could feel the breath of spring. The first stop of the day was Kakukyu Miso factory. It was hot, many attendees tried Miso ice cream before starting the actual Miso factory tour. It was delicious, the perfect balance of salty and sweetness.

This year, 2017, marks a big year for Canada as it turns 150 years young!
It seems like only yesterday that Canada was celebrating its centennial year, and here we are celebrating its Sesquicentennial . Yes! There is a word for it. I mean, you would have thought something like, " tri-semi-centennial ", but the actual term sounds almost like Sasquatch, making it just that much more Canadian.
