For our next Webinar, we're happy to welcome back Insight Provider Michael Causton, who will cover changes in Japanese consumer spending during Covid, longer-term issues in the country's consumer market, and how both are impacting, and will impact retail and brands in the next five years.
The webinar will be hosted on Wednesday, 15 December 2021, 17:00 SGT/HKT.
Michael Causton is co-founder and partner at Japan Consuming. JapanConsuming is a specialist research firm producing intelligence on Japanese retail and consumer markets. Founded in 2000, it has become the leading provider of insights on Japanese retailers and consumer trends to retailers, brands, government agencies and investors.
Michael Causton set up and ran a consumer distribution business in Tokyo for 10 years and developed this into a business responsible for annual imports to Japan of several billion Yen, at the same time building up an inside knowledge of how Japanese distribution works and developing a network of contacts across the industry. Seeing the lack of quality market intelligence on Japanese markets, he co-founded JapanConsuming in 2000. He divides his time between Japan and Europe/US consulting for companies, governments and investors, including providing talks, seminars, and webinars as well as writing reports and books.
