Thank you for 2018. It was a amazingly fun year!!!

Hello everyone!It’s come to the end of another year huh? There are so many topics I would like to talk about that have been piling up but I’m going to skip that and just give out a year end greeting. lol

In the year 2018 I met so many new people, grew new relations, was helped, and it truly has been a historically fun year!(Every year I have reflected on how fun the years have been, and this makes the 38th year in a row and counting.)

I really always gratefully to have so many people befriend and work with me. Thank you very much^^

 

Since this is the year end updated I decided I would reflect on the year looking over my iphone I saw there were a tone of photos from this past year and it made me happy. I remembered taking all of them.

In between the pictures of my private and family life, there were pictures of the employees and friends I have grown even closer to through Event21.

 

Life is interesting. You can do anything you want.

Right now I am in my hideaway (my private office) writing this last blog post of the year. Just tapping away at the keyboard making rattling noises.

For those whom do not know me or are not familiar with me always think I am always only busy with work, however, every month I setup a wonderful lunch at a lovely restaurant with my wife. With the name “Monthly Lunch Date” it is written in my yearly schedule lol. Tabelog (a restaurant search application in Japan) is a very essential app.

As well as never forgetting the monthly trip with my family. Enjoying it with the family that shares a love for all the treasures nationwide. That is also written in my yearly schedule as “Monthly Family Vacation” lol. Ikyu (a hotel search application in Japan) is also very essential to me.

 

Keeping my family and private life very close to my heart and living my life to help people and help the world. There is no more interesting a life like this.

For those who do not know the interesting aspects of their work, for those who do not put in the work to make their lives easier will never see these fields. The me of now, knows much of this.

The younger me from long ago, I wonder if he can imagine the me of now? Though it is me and I would have known that no matter what I would have been having a great time but I wonder if he knew what the fun was?

 

15 years ago when I was a traveler, there was a man who counted down in Hong Kong. In the middle of a trip visiting 62 major cities in Asia.

At one of the worlds three major night view points, looking up at s hundred million dollar starry sky spending my first ever New Years overseas. I believe I was 24 at the time.

Then, with an overwhelming feeling I found a Peninsula Hotel and with my heart pumping I entered. My heart still pumping I wandered around the 1st floor. “WOW!!” “What kind of people stay at a place like this??” While excited I doing nothing, I still remember leaving that hotel.

The me, without money, whom was over dazzled by the world staying at around 1000¥ (roughly 10USD) a day. But I decided that I would one day stay at a place like that. That day.

 

At the Annual New Year’s family vacation, this year we decided Hong Kong.

We stayed at a suite in the Peninsula Hotel.

 

Relaxing with the family I love over Afternoon Tea, I vision about seeing someone walking alone that looks to be out of place and wish to call out to them and poor them some tea.

There I would ask, where you been travelin? From the South? From the North? you know.

There I would also tell him the old legendary ruins only travelers know. Since you were born on this Earth, at least give it a look once. And if possible soon..

Your dreams will all come true, it is natural to have the wish to do what ever one pleases, but if you put all of those experiences to good use, in 15 years you can be sitting here and give this same story to someone else. And poor them some tea. Wouldn’t that be something?

My life is overflowing with stories like this. For 38 years, I have felt nothing but gratitude.

 

Alright, lets put the public and private me aside and start the public blog!

 

★The Company is in Perfect Condition!

Sales went from 1,000,000,000 to 1,600,000,000! Employment has grown by 60 members.

The 100% join of our junior company Step Co. Ltd. and its success. We’ve also achieved Employee to CEO culture!

The creating of the Shinyokohama and Aichi branches, with group branches included we have 15 branches! And in 3 months, we will also have our new Chiba and Kyoto branches. Also creating 2 more branch leaders.

The Kanto Event21 Festival had an attendance of 2000 members. Working with the locals. This process has created a Super Committee Leader. She has also been announced to be the next year Tokyo Branch Office Leader!

From Professors at University, to the Ministry of Economy and Trade, we had the chance to be interviewed be a TV station in Tokyo. Event21’s Culture and members are going to make Japan more happy.

We have also created the new Training Camp “10 years VISION summit by U25”. Looking into the next stable 30 years of Event21.

Creation of the Creative Department. With also the General Affairs, Accounting, and Bridge. The creation of leadership within the company has been big and with the videos, vision tree, and “book” sales, we have moved forward in IT and bringing the interns together we have made a success of the first ever Yokohama Wintergate!

I have also ate with the employees a lot! There have been many stories and I’ve learned a lot.

 

★The marriages of our members and births have also grown!

Kanagawa’s K-kun, Osaka’s K-kun, and Nara’s M-kun all got married.

Nara’s M-kun had twins with his wife. U-kun had their first born. and Kanagawa’s K-kun had their second child.

For their Honeymoon, Aichi’s Branch Leader went to Hokkaido. Nara’s M-kun went to Hawaii.

Male employees have also started being able to take time off to raise their kids.

The foundation of Event21, the employees, all walk many different lives. I am always amazed by how cool that is. That’s why I always gotta try harder!! Because I want to make everyone’s lives even more fruitful.

 

★I have entered the 2nd period as Representative of the Youth Liaison Committee!

This year I have also held lectures and brought my employees to many of them all over Japan. This time we held 20 lectures… Nara(2 times)、Ibaraki、Iwate、Saga、Hokkaido(2 times)、Wakayama、Fukushima(2 times)、Tokushima(2 times)、Nagano、Tokyo、Shiga、Akita、Saitama、Osaka、Toyama、Tottori。

Of course, meetings, block meetings, I attended many more all over Japan.

This year we have created an environment that has brought together all of the Youth Groups Nationwide, as well as created a path for the next generation when we give off the baton.

I have also learned more from my Core-Value Business Association colleagues, from Kansai, Kanto, overseas, etc. I am truly blessed to have these friends.

 

★This year I have also been to 3 countries!

Bangkok in Thai、Ho Chi Min in Vietnam、Chicago in America.

 

Next year will be a battle!!!!(Even though I say it every year!!!)

Everything is finally fitting into place. That is why next year we are planning a management strategy to pass 100. Then the next year we will be an Event21 that can pass 2,000,000,000. With the friends I love and trust.

With this I can see more of a new world. With this through Sanpoyoshi: customer. us, local area, we can become a company that can spread more happy!

I want to gain more power to make “you happy, we happy!” come true. More. There is no time to twiddle ones thumbs. There is no wasted sweat dealt by my employees.

That is why as the CEO of Event21, as a Manager, as the Leader of a Region, I will hold my pride with my life and push forward to make an even better company.

 

I would like to thank you for this year!

Next year I will work my very best so I hope for great relations next year as well!!!!


10月のイベント21の話。色々毎日楽しいです。

10月は大阪と横浜で内定式2回やって、鎌倉で10years合宿やって、講演4回(徳島、秋田、埼玉、大阪)のうち、秋田と埼玉は愛一郎ミッションで社員と共に学んで、東京から取材があってと、相変わらずてんこ盛りな月でした。

まぁそれらは単体で記事にした(する)ので、その他の10月イベント21の日常系を一気にいきましょう。

今回のブログのトピックは10月関東出張、10月中日本出張、10月全体朝礼、G10、サミット、委員長会、第6回社内MBA、東京社長寿司ランチ、第14回社長ダイニング、山口・愛知会社訪問おもてなし。

ということで。サミットの写真無いけどいこ。

関東出張では、東京支店の社長寿司ランチ!今回は今年度新卒の2名と行きました。

普段中々ゆっくり話せないのでこういう時間が僕は嬉しいです。2人ともよくウチの会社に入ってきてくれたなぁ。

これは社員達全員に言えるけど。ありがとう^ ^

東京支店、たまにはちゃんと仕事してるところも出しておきましょうかね。いつもご飯食べてる写真ばっかやから!

そしてこの日はG10(拠点長会議)です。テレビ電話で。

圧倒的な質量の議題をみんなで進めていきます。毎月の情報共有とPDCAが大事。

そしてみんなが意見を言える場で、みんなの意見を吸い上げる機会を持って、みんなで話し合って会社の明日を決めていく事が大事。

奈良本社には、山口県と愛知県の同友会仲間が会社訪問に来てくれました。遠くからありがとうございます!

今回のおもてなしチームの三名^^

もう70回を超える、イベント21の文化です。社外の経営者に直接触れ、自分の意見をアウトプットする学びと気付きの場。

この日はイベント21第6回社内MBAでした。「イベント21の仕組みと環境」をテーマに学び合います。

仕組みと環境の違いが分かればまた一つ閃きや課題解決の武器を持てる。

イベント21社員達には、僕が第一線で磨いてきた能力と感性と姿勢を全て共有する。ほぼ全ての社会人は働いて生きていくわけで、ビジネスの世界で実際に結果を出している経営者の力は現実として圧倒的に強い。これらは間違いなく今の時代どこでも通用する「生きる力」になるから。

普通のビジネスマンが100万円ぐらい払って受けるビジネスセミナーよりももっと凄い、リアルタイムで勝ち続けている門外不出の生の学びを直接無料で得れるのはイベント21社員の特権。

誰だって仕事出来ないよりも出来るほうが良いし、どうせ働くなら結果出せずに怒られるよりも結果出して豊かになるほうが良いし、誰にもあてにされないよりみんなの役に立てるほうが良い。知ってたほうが得な事は知っていたほうが良いに決まっている。

それぐらい社会で重要性の高い事なのに、教えてもらえる場所がほとんど無いからこそ。僕は本気で社員教育に時間を使う。

別の日。この日は月一回の全体朝礼。全拠点がskypeで繋がり朝礼をします。

朝からコアバリュー!全拠点営業成績発表!表彰!you happy, we happy!エピソード共有!これだけの事を大体10分ぐらいでやります。お客様を待たせる訳にはいかないので、朝の僅かな時間の価値を最大化させる。

ウチの会社はいたるところに訳の分からん創作物が見つけられるのですが、こんなん見つけた。なにこれ。

ちなみに顔は奈良本社サブセクションチーフのFくんです。次年度奈良統括としてセクションチーフに出世する人です。和気あいあいの切磋琢磨な会社です。

こちらは今期から月イチ七会の一つに追加された、委員長会。もう6回目の開催です。

社内の全13委員会の委員長が月に一回集結する会議。テレビ電話で全国繋がります。情報共有や相談などで同じ役割同士が繋がります。

月一回の中日本出張。

昨年度までは月二回関東出張行ってましたが、今年度からは関東と中日本を月に一回ずつに変更してます。

いずれ全国に拠点が出来まくると、僕が行く頻度は更に少なるなるでしょう。でもその分僕の代わりに行く社員達が増えていくのです。それもめっちゃ楽しみ。

まずは大阪支店。卓球台で遊んでるやん!商品チェックですけど!仕事ですけど!これがイベント屋の日常なのです。ゲームセンター行ったらお金払わないと楽しめないような事を、お金貰って仕事で出来る夢のような職業です(笑)

そんな大阪支店に奈良本社から出向で来ている、次年度京都支店サブセクションチーフのMくん。会議室でなんかやってます。

振り向き様も、さわやかです。最近結婚しました。

そして大阪支店社長ランチ!

昼から愛知支店へ。

フォークリフトが新しく来ていたので僕も遊びます(機械チェックの仕事します!)

愛知支店スタートアップのMくんも、新卒入社でもう半年。よく頑張ってる!!!

愛知支店社長飲み!

せっかくやし名古屋っぽいとこ行くぞ!と、名古屋で一番夜景の綺麗なバーへ。

はしゃぐ人達。

そして別の日。奈良本社のリーダー以上達と。第14回社長ダイニング。今回のゲストはサブリーダーSさん。今回のテーマは多様性について語り合います。

社員達が多くなってきて僕が関われる頻度は月1回とかになってますけど、それで離職率は大幅に下がっている。

それは僕の代わりに理念軸でリーダーシップを発揮出来る先輩が歳を重ねるごとに増えてきているから。

そして環境や仕組みなど会社としてのフォロー体制が年を重ねるごとに整ってきているから。

僕の想いや戦略をきちんと理解出来ている社員を社内に何人増やせるか。

もちろん全員の勤続年数も違えば年齢も役職も違うし、僕との接触頻度が違うので全員同じ共有レベル、理解レベルになるのは現実的では無いけれど、確実に結果として全体のレベルは上がってるし、諦めずにビジョン実現に向けて挑み続ける事が経営者の姿勢。

今まで挑んできた事は全部意味を成しているし、これから挑む事も全部意味を持つ。過去と未来を大切にして今を生きる。

社員の流す汗は一滴も無駄にしない。めっちゃ良い会社をみんなで創ろう!

いつもみんなありがとう^ ^
