AIIP Connections Committee, Director of Advertisement
Eiko has been an incredible AIIP volunteer. She is very reliable: when she says she will do something by a certain date, you can count on it. She is incredibly gracious, always giving the other person credit, but she is a real workhorse. - Ellen Naylor, Director of Member Benefits
Through volunteer work I learned a lot about the AIIP and running a business. It also gave me opportunities to become connected and to get to know other members and people outside of the association. All in all, volunteering has been an enriching experience in many ways, including learning about myself.
Before Eiko retired from business in 2011, her company, Shaul InfoResearch, provided business research to companies and to consultants. The service offered researching and evaluating information and analyzing it for strategic and tactical business planning and decision making.
Eiko offered the service in English and in Japanese. Many clients were from the U.S. and interested in Japanese markets, while others were from Japan and from Canada. Eiko also had the pleasure of participating in collaborative projects with AIIP members.
Main sources used for projects were the Web, databases (English and Japanese) and contacting organizations (e.g. associations, government agencies) and people (e.g. experts, researchers).
