Join strategic decision makers in Tokyo, Japan, September 9 thru the 11 for the Health Strategy Network Pan-Pacific conference. The Health Strategy Network Executive Conference Series is hosted by Health Strategy Consulting, the leading strategy and content consulting group in the nutrition and natural products industry.

Our events deliver insight that is critical to strategic decision makers in a format unique to our industry. We create a global learning connection using pertinent, facilitated business case studies in the areas of retail, branded marketing and ingredient manufacturing. Together with our attendees, we challenge the issues that face companies as they compete in global markets – sharing diverse knowledge, backgrounds and perspectives to collectively formulate new ideas and alternative solutions.

Executives gain practical ‘big picture’ perspective, broad insights and strategic advice from experienced, knowledgeable participants while forming lasting relationships with industry peers.

Attendees include fellow decision makers and players throughout the value chain of technology, manufacturing, marketing, distribution and retail and from all segments including dietary supplements, foods, pharma, ingredients and personal care.

We employ the Case Study Method, a facilitated session that allows the group to discuss, challenge and attempt to solve a complex business problem. The comprehensive case studies are written and delivered in advance to attendees. Each case has different specific issues to be addressed. The examples are taken from actual business situations and deal with the complexity of making decisions and weighing various options. The design of the case ensures that the issues are not unique but deal with challenges which all participants can identify. The real benefit of the method is the group discussion that pools the input and opinions of over fifty executives with diverse backgrounds and experiences for a lively interaction offering diverse perspectives and revealing insights.

Case discussions are concluded with comments from the strategic decision maker of the company studied to clarify issues in the case, highlight the “inside” line of thinking and further challenge the group.

Finally, the discussions do not end at the session, as our conference is designed to ensure an environment in which continued discussions carry throughout the networking events, breaks and meals.

Health Strategy Consulting believes strongly that by writing a story and delivering it in advance to all the participants, it provides a unique occasion for open dialogue where all the executives in one room have the same information but different perspectives.

This coupled with the fact that most executives running a company lack a peer to discuss and challenge ideas, provide a truly exclusive environment for key business leaders.

Recent conference case studies include;

DrSoy nutrition bars where the key challenge is having enough capital to fuel growth in a timely manner.

Metagenics healthcare supplements where the key challenge is to understand how to maintain innovation.

White Wave has the rare challenge of not only growing their business but also growing the entire soy milk category.

The challenge for Ocean Nutrition Canada is how to manage a pipeline of projects and potential products.

We’ve created a unique and customized platform for the Asian conference built on feedback from our successful events in Toronto, Sydney and Mexico and have designed a program which will provide the best environment for learning and sharing among industry leaders.

We invite decision makers throughout the natural products value chain to participate and share your experience and insight.

We will incorporate our innovative case study format featuring high profile brands with pertinent business challenges that each participant can relate to and provide a unique and personal perspective.

The Tokyo case studies will include;

Forbes Medi-Tech who’s future is based on their ability to balance the creation of more-exclusive relationships with major companies versus being a supplier.

Metagenics healthcare supplements where the key challenge is to understand how to best enter the Japanese market and who best to work with, while leveraging their competencies in effective ways.
