TEDxTokyo Operation Director and TEDxTokyo yz Founder Naho Iguchi gives us a peek into what keeps her coming back for more.
TEDxTokyo Community Catalyst, TEDxTokyo yz founder
There’s an old saying in English, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going”. This saying seems to have been tailor-made for Naho Iguchi. Naho has long had a passion for learning about humans and culture. She pursued this passion throughout college, including studying Organizational Psychology as a graduate student in the U.S. However when the time came to find a job, there was nothing in her field to be found. While most people in her situation might opt to work in another field, Naho instead set her sights on freelancing. Eventually she began working with TEDxTokyo and has since become a vital team member. She has also created her own business as a “Communication Process Designer”, wherein she assists corporations, NPO’s and even the government at times to help design tailor-made work processes and environments unique to each client. Naho’s belief in using communication and trust as forces of social and cultural change lie at the heart of her vision of a Japan—and a world—that embraces the light in each of us.
