Corporate / Business

The Japanese tea ceremony has played a far-reaching role - in Japanese society and beyond - demonstrating the importance of an alternative way of seeing, a different way of understanding other people, as well as having the capacity to deliver a Zen-inspired space in which to relax and reflect. 

This combination of offering a space for reflection, and providing an example of alternative ways of approaching things, has made our Japanese tea ceremony workshops a remarkable success with business clients.

While being entertaining and unusual, they can also be relevant and thought-provoking, and support management programmes and initiatives. Suitable not just for Japanese and Asian corporate situations, but for all business environments that relish fresh perspectives. 

Over the last 5 years we have worked with a surprising range of business clients, achieving different ends and strategies. It’s a great way of communicating and having fun with your staff – and (if you want to arrange it) you get to actually make tea yourself, instead of just listening, so you get really engaged.

The largest event we’ve done was a corporate day for 5,000 people, involving the UK staff of a company who were finding out about various aspects of Asian culture. We’ve also worked with a major US consulting firm over several days, delivering hands-on seminars to different groups of consultants. 

On a different front, we were invited by a major Italian fashion house to help launch one of their new fragrances, and we took part in a special launch event of the Palme d’Or winning film ‘Shoplifters’. 

We have also worked with less regulated audiences, appearing in an open-air weekend culture festival in Berkshire, where crowds came to our workshop performances.

 Do let us know if you like an initial discussion about a business or corporate opportunity. 

 We are always keen to discuss how the Japanese tea ceremony workshop can play a positive role in business development and would be delighted share some thoughts.
