The Five Day Mission Driven Business Challenge Program designed by SpiceWorx, in close collaboration with Bio-Normalizer Trading Philippines was a truly unique joint business training program for Japanese and Filipino professionals.  It featured a real business mission of a real company's real product as a main theme of the training.
A total of 18 participants, mix of Japanese and Filipino young professionals from IT industry, were given a mission to conduct a market research in Metro Manila, for Bio-Normalizer, a dietary supplement made from organically grown green carica papaya harvested in the Philippines.  In five days, the participants learned about the product, practiced how to pitch for it, conducted market research targeting four (4) different market segments, analyzed the data they gathered and formulated recommendations for the marketing strategy of Bio-Normalizer. 
On the last day all four (4) groups who researched their respective market segment delivered excellent presentations about their findings from the market research and recommendations for marketing the product in each segment. The research activity even generated some real leads. The top executives of Bio-Normalizer rated the result of the research very highly as it was significantly insightful and useful for their business. 
SpiceWorx has been organizing and coordination joint business training for Japanese and Filipinos since October 2009.  With the Five Day Mission Driven Business Challenge Program,  SpiceWorx brought the business training program out of the classroom and to the real field.
On Friday, November 29, 2013, SpiceWorx conducted a Cross Cultural Communication Workshop for Japanese expats in Manila, in collaboration with Mr. Keisuke Taketani.  Mr. Taketani is a Cross Cultural communication expert who had conducted such workshop around the world during his tenure with Asian Development Bank (ADB), UNICEF, UNDP and Ford Motors. 

SpiceWorx and Mr. Taketani jointly designed the workshop to help Japanese expats improve communication with Filipino colleagues, subordinates, superiors, customers and partners by understanding some basic concepts, frameworks and tools of cross cultural communication and various contexts of the Philippines such as history, culture, values and Filipino mentality.
