Our business plan was inspired by Thom Peace and developed in collaboration with the Aoyama Professionals Team.
Aoyama Professionals (AP) was founded in 2020 with the main aim of providing high-quality international training programs and services for business professionals and owners in Japan.
Business Professionals in Japan are looking for more practical methods of improving International Workplace Skills to improve opportunities for working and studying in an international environment.
Our program combines simultaneous practical training communication, business, technology, and career skills to accelerate goal achievement.
The target audience is professionals in Japan, specifically mid-career employees who wish to advance their careers and entrepreneurs who aim to grow their business.
Aoyama Professionals is part of a niche market of training firms of all sizes. Small firms that target individuals will be our initial competition. As we grow, large companies include Berlitz, which target companies and individuals will become our competition as well.
AP generates income through 1) Fees from students for coaching sessions, 2) Fees and Profit Sharing from project sponsors for use of the facilities and team resources, 3) Fees from clients for professional services provided by our team and partners.
AP will communicate with customers with targeted ads on Google and social media, in person at networking events and direct email.
