GENTEN (原点、げんてん) means ‘starting point’ in Japanese. “My GENTEN” means my core values or ultimate goal. Written differently, GENTEN (現点、げんてん) is a starting point, or standpoint. In this sense, then, “My GENTEN”means where I stand or what I am doing NOW.
talk×GENTEN is our first event, a new type of speaking and social event that will bring together Canadians and Japanese speakers who live in Toronto, Canada and play an active role in a wide range of professional and social activities here. Also, our speakers have had an experience going abroad through the JET Program, or on a working holiday visa, and working for at least a year abroad. We would like to share their GENTEN stories.
There are two periods in the talking session. The first period is a panel discussion which is based on questions collected from participants in advance, and the second period is a question-and-answer session. Our moderator speaks English and Japanese and will translate for the Japanese speakers. Also we are planning to have time for speakers and participants to connect after the session.
