2009 Toshiba New Employee Entrance Ceremony 【東芝2009入社式】

A memorable 2009 Toshiba Group New Employee Entrance Ceremony which is to welcome new employees to the company, Toshiba ( This year there were about 850 people (~90% were Japanese). Luckily I am one of them. ^^

The 2 hour ceremony in the Apurico hall (Kamata Eki) included the speech by President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr.Atsutoshi Nishida, speech by new employee representative and introduce of each company representative etc...

The ceremony was carried by using Japanese, so sorry to say that I was really tired to catch up what were they talking about... It was very fast. I will be very happy if I could understand about 30% out of it. but I doubt... :(

One more thing is, my 3 years contract was started activated by today... :p
