Top business speaker to visit NorthTec

A leading management consultant from Japan will be the speaker at a free business seminar hosted by NorthTec.

Dr. Eiji Tamura has been a management consultant in Japan’s competitive business world for more than 30 years, specialising in leading-edge technologies.

He will be speaking at NorthTec’s Interactive Learning Centre, near Gate 1 on the Raumanga campus, from 10.30am to 12 noon, on Wednesday, 19 April. The seminar, Project Management in the Real World, is being hosted by NorthTec’s business department and is open to all.

Beginning his career working for both Sony and Intel, designing semi-conductor chips, Dr Tamura moved into consultancy and provided services focused on leveraging leading-edge technologies to find business breakthrough solutions.

After 10 years of consulting work with large organisations, he established a boutique consulting firm. Services ranged from business process change management through to IT blueprinting and implementation management, with a relatively long-term focus enabling clients to maximise projected benefits.

Eight years ago, Dr. Tamura founded a non-profit association to conduct research on how to increase project success rates and develop techniques and tools to achieve project objectives.

He is currently Managing Director for M&IT Co Ltd, Managing Partner for Synergetic Consulting, Inc. and Chairman of the Association for Business Process Architect Professionals.

Dr Tamura has a Bachelor of Science, Master of Science and a Ph.D in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Keio University, Yokohama, Japan.
