In 2010 business leader Dr Kazuo Inamori took on the monumental task of turning around Japan Airlines, Japan's national carrier which had just gone bankrupt. Within three years the airline was successfully re-listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange and became the most profitable airline in the world.

Drawing on his experiences over 55 years building up his two companies Kyocera and KDDI from scratch to currently having combined sales of nearly 7 trillion yen, Dr Inamori will describe the importance of igniting the minds of all employees so that they all take an active role in the success of their company.

The lecture will be introduced by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Andrew Hamilton.

Please note that Dr Inamori’s lecture will be delivered in Japanese with interpretation into English delivered through headsets. For this reason, pre-event registration is essential. If you would like to put forward a question in the Q&A session, please sit on the ground floor of the theatre. Seating is unreserved for general admission tickets.

Doors open at 4.30pm.
