The Importance of Regular Exchanges of Information（No3）- PREX Island
The Importance of Regular Exchanges of Information（No3）
Until September 2010, the number of people who had participated in seminars held in Japan run by PREX totaled around 4,200. PREX has been keeping touch with participants after they return home through such means as exchange of information at meetings of Alumni Associations and individual contacts with PREX staff. However, in fiscal 2010, for the first time, a “seasonal greetings email” was sent to former participants who had visited Japan in the past, mainly for seminars in fiscal 2009 and 2010.
This photo arrived from Ms. Savchenko Yulia, who participated in the Practical Training of Business Course (Uzbekistan-Japan Center) in fiscal 2010. It shows a local traditional dance. It can be observed while dining at the Medressa (an Islamic school) that is open to tourists. The brightly colored clothing certainly is impressive!
Replies to our greeting cards from PREX seminar participants who have returned home
“Is everyone healthy and happy? We are experiencing a hot summer in Japan…We will send pictures of memories of the Japanese summer, fireworks and the Gion Festival in Kyoto. Please give us an update on your current situations and activities since you’ve returned home.”
After PREX sent out this kind of email, we got a huge response, with many former participants sending back replies. Here we introduce just a few of them.
From Mr. Le Huy Long
Small and Medium Enterprise Management Asia-Oceania Region, Fiscal 2009
Thanks for sending the beautiful pictures. I liked to watch the NHK channel on TV when I went to Japan. I would like to share some information of my activities after training in Japan for you:
- I always tell my customers and friends about the working behavior of Japanese: It supports me and my customers implementing 5S and kaizen.
- I consult some of my customers implementing 5S and kaizen.
- I am building an online course based on knowledge from the training.
Take care and hope to hear from you!
During the seminar, we hope that he uses his experience in Japan to become more active in his home country.
PREX feels the necessity of keeping in regular contact in order to maintain links with former participants now back in their own countries. PREX plans to continue sending the emails offering seasonal greetings.
