About the Event

Ms. Cynthia Usui will draw from her personal journey “from mother to management” in order to inspire others on how they can rebuild their careers. Born and raised in the Philippines to Chinese parents, Ms. Usui moved to Japan to study at Tokyo University of Foreign Studies, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Japanese Language and Studies. After graduation, she worked in advertising but quit her job to focus on being a mother. She spent the next 25 years overseas as the wife of a Japanese diplomat. Upon returning to Tokyo, Ms. Usui landed her first job as a part-timer at a Members Club for expats at the age of 52, and moved up the ranks to executive levels in hospitality.

Ms. Usui will lend her insight, offer advice, and take us on a journey of perseverance and empowerment.

 

About the Speaker

Ms. Cynthia Usui is the author of the Japanese book “Eight Things Full-Time Housewives Should do Before Entering the Workforce”, and has held positions at the ANA InterContinental Hotel and Shangri-La Hotel Tokyo. She led Coca-Cola Japan’s hospitality team for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Games until last February, and has recently accepted the role of Country Manager for LOF Hotels Japan.

Ms. Usui’s story has been turned into a television drama series by NHK and she continues to share her wisdom with the world through various speaking engagements and social media opportunities.
