On Tuesday 16 November, in the second period, Professor Takeshi Yamawaki, former Chief Executive of the Asahi Shimbun’s American Bureau Chief, gave a lecture on “The Art of the Interview”.
How to conduct a successful interview
How to ask the right questions
What business negotiations and interviews have in common
Types of interview articles (three different models were presented)
Points to keep in mind when writing an article
It was a very interesting lecture as many of the students felt that they could use the interview techniques in their everyday communication, business and research.
Next time, based on the content of Professor Yamawaki’s lecture, the students will actually interview Mr. Kaisei Hamamoto, co-founder and COO of Smart News Co.
