My name is William Kawabata Hall, and I am half-Australian/half Japanese(/bilingual and bicultural - Japanese/English) and am an executive recruiter for a company called Robert Leonard Consulting. While I manage the operations for RLC, I personally focus on executive recruitment for Entertainment/Media, Consumer/Retail, and Finance Industry (Marketing/Communication Roles) for multinational foreign capital companies here in Japan since 2002 (previously having worked for another multinational executive search firm).

For my Linked In Profile:

Aside from bilingual executive recruitment, I work on Japanese to English translation (and sometimes interpretation) projects as well. My daily work in the executive recruitment field, consists of meeting and interviewing executive level candidates in Japanese and English. I review (and have final authorization in the approval of) all legal documents/contracts in both English and Japanese for our firm. As the candidate’s recruiting agent, I translate/interpret Employment Contracts (Offer Letters) for them to clarify all the details in both languages. Also, I communicate with clients(mainly line managers – all at the Director, CEO, or APAC Director Level) on a daily basis (both in English and Japanese) via telephone, email, and in person.

Some of my key clients include:
Walt Disney, Warner Bros, Apple, iTunes, Amazon, Sumitomo 3M, Dyson, Nike, UBS Securities, Lloyd’s Bank, Morgan Stanley, MTV Networks, Cartoon Networks, Discovery Channel, Synovate, Expedia, and many more

Aside from bilingual executive recruitment, I have been working on the following projects:
- Fuji Rock Festival - 2002 - current (Personal Interpreter for Foreign Artists) - including Chris Robinson, Juliette Lewis, Priscilla Ahn, Kate Nash, and Diane Birch
- Synovate Healthcare - Market Research Projects - Conducted 30 minute one-on-one interviews in Japanese with senior level executives in the Pharma/Medical Device industry, and then translating the interview to English for the client.
