"Je tiens à vous remercier pour la qualité de votre intervention, lors de la matinée Japon organisée par le MEDEF Ile-de-France le 11 mai 2016. ​Votre connaissance du Japon et de la culture de ses entrepreneurs, vos conseils sur les "à faire" tout autant que sur les "à ne pas faire", les "do" et les "don't do", pour les entreprises françaises désireuses d'un développement d'affaires avec ce pays, ont été très appréciés et ont donné lieu à des échanges enrichissants entre vous et les participants, dont certains, exportateurs confirmés, ont pu témoigner de la justesse de vos propos en direction des nombreux néo-exportateurs présents."

"Nous tenons à vous adresser nos sincères remerciements pour la qualité et l'intérêt de votre intervention jeudi soir dernier à l'occasion de la venue de la délégation I-BAC. Les participants à cette conférence dont les 8 membres de la délégation japonaise de la préfecture d'AICHI avec lesquels nous avons été en contact à l’issue de cette soirée ont  vivement apprécié votre intervention et les explications précises que vous avez fournies concernant le développement d'activités sur le marché japonais. Vos exemples concrets ainsi que vos propos rythmés ont vraiment contribué au succès de cette conférence. 

Nous avons été très satisfaits des échanges qui se sont opérés durant et à l'issue de cette conférence et nous espérons que cette conférence pourra se traduire dans les prochains mois par la mise en place de projets concrèts de développement au Japon de la part de nos sociétés val d'oisiennes."

I can highly recommend him."

Example:  WORKSHOP - BUSINESS RELATIONS WITH JAPAN (half-day).

Talking about a fascinating country and key Economic Power like Japan could be the object of a full course or even an academic program. Therefore, as an introduction to the subject, this workshop  focuses on two key questions: WHY and HOW to do business with Japan ?

In the first Part (the WHY Part), we start with an overview of the Japanese Industry and Economy, we show that it is a major Market where Innovation, Long-term Strategy & Customer Service are key and where International companies need to be. Further, we explain the mutual benefits for Japan and the EU to conclude an EPA (Economic Partnership Agreement). This is a hot topic at the moment !

In the second Part (the HOW TO Part), we learn how to negotiate and to build long-term relationships with Japanese businessmen & companies and we make an analogy with the Japanese “Sumo”. Finally, we analyse what went wrong in the following Case Study: ”Opportunities for French SMEs in the Japanese Aerospace Industry: how to improve business relations.”

The Workshop is a combination of Powerpoint presentations, interactive Q&A and case study.


" As the coordinator of Business Executives Seminars at Vesalius College I had the opportunity to meet Philippe Huysveld and attend his Workshop "Business Relation with Japan". Mr.Huysveld, undoubtedly, has extensive knowledge in this field. He gave a very in depth and at the same time clear and easy to follow presentation about why one should do business with the Japanese and how one should do business with the Japanese. Educational, interesting and inspiring, Mr.Huysveld has not only managed to explain but imprint the concept of "kaizen" within me personally."
