Twitter in Tohoku

James Kondo | TEDxTokyo 2011

As the country manager for Twitter Japan, James Kondo’s focus and passion is to transform Twitter into a lifeline tool that helps people caught up in natural disasters like the March 11 calamity connect to loved ones, get critical real-time info, and find solutions to ongoing problems.

A McKinsey & Company consultant for fifteen years, a University of Tokyo faculty member for six years, and a former political appointee at the Office of the Prime Minister of Japan, James co-founded the think-tank Health and Global Policy Institute. As a member of the Forum of Young Global Leaders at Davos, he also co-founded a social movement called Table for Two to kick-start a global debate on food, hunger and obesity—and fund school meals in regions suffering from food shortages.

Currently a visiting professor at Hitotsubashi University, James also recently co-founded a foundation to help orphans from natural disasters.
