“Rebuilding Japan Airlines: the Inamori Way”
Lecture in the Sheldonian Theatre

In 2010 legendary 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. Many called this feat a miracle but Dr Inamori maintains that his particular vision of management has universal application to business success in companies around 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.

Dr Inamori has outlined his inspirational philosophy for business and life in a number of books which have become best-sellers in Japan, China and other parts of Asia. For the first time in May he will give a major public lecture in Europe in the Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford. This lecture is a unique opportunity to hear from one of Japan’s great business legends about his theories on finding success and fulfilment in both life and work.
