First up was the power of youth. Mr. I, who will be working in the U.S. from Jan. 2, expressed his enthusiasm about working there.
This term, he actively devoted himself to training in preparation for his time abroad. First he will study at Arizona State University to improve his English, and then he'll take up his work at ISOWA America. I look forward to his triumphant return after experiencing great personal growth.
Next up was the power of maturity. At the beginning of this month, four of our employees gave a presentation at Scholar Consult Co. about the ideal products and services that they wanted to provide. They did such a great job that I asked them to give the same presentation for us.
They spoke about ideal products and services related to their positions and jobs, sharing the goal of “creating works” that we are now working on.
Some members of the technical division said after the ceremony that they were very glad all four speakers mentioned their project.
Last up was power of old age. They might get angry when they hear this, but after youth and manhood, what’s left but old age? And I know that I also belong to the “old age” category, so please forgive me.
Executive Director Mr. I looked back on the year and spoke passionately about safety in particular.
Executive Director Mr. K brought the year to a close with “sanbon-jime,” the Japanese custom of performing three sets of rhythmic hand clapping at the end of a special event.
This year-end ceremony made me realize ISOWA’s strength in each generation – youth, maturity and old age.
