Hi Regina,

Thank you for your best wishes. We just finished the first day of J-SOL4 and I am so fascinated that CNPR(chane of natural positive response) is happening here and there. Congratulations for the happy Summer Retreat.

Dear Ruiko and Aoki,

sending my best wishes for a WONDER-ful j-sol conference in Japan.

I would love to join you and will do so in my thoughts.

Deep bows to all the SOL friends in Japan, Julia

Sue, thank you for your nice message!


I am sure you had the wonderful retreat again this year. We are going to be smaller this year in number but much deeper in meaning and significance. Thank you really so much for your attention.

As we are finishing the SOL Summer Retreat in Switzerland, you will be starting J-SOL4. May I wish you a wonderful conference and I hope many good things happen that help Japan to recover from the earthquake and tsunami. Deep bows to our SOL friends in Japan. :-)

Hi "this lady" Julia and Kati,

Thank you for having interests in SF Young Ambassadors.

SF will help young people in any situation like us. They can get an oar when they are going to sail to business milieu. When they start their job with SF, there is a big difference. We give SF seminars to managers or group leaders now. One day, new employee who know SF will support their managers. From top and bottom, SF will spread in both way.


And, this idea came to my mind after the disaster of 3/11 Earthquake. We were thinking to help people living in those area and talking something to help them by/from/as J-SOL. Such a giving mind turns to young people who waits some opportunities to grow. We can give them such a opportunity for inviting to J-SOL. It's like a story of a man who plant a tree in a dry land. Year by year, SF young trees increase and grow, someday it become SF forest.


Deep bow,

Dear Julia

the ppt you still can find on the conference website: and as far I know the video was only temporarly reachable - Aoki San, is there still a link?


I'm also very excited and pleased with the idea of young ambassadors - it would be somehow a great idea to simillary support ?beginners? from countries, where the annual conference took place that they can afford to join the following year?

curious about the experiences you'll make and with warm greetings from Switzerland

Hi Aoki,

your presentation at Balatonfüred was so good that I told many people about it. Could you please tell me again where I find your ppt presentation and the short video? It was so inspiring. Thanks a lot.

Best regards, Julia

Hello Ruiko and Aoki,

what a marvellous idea with the SF young ambassadors. That's a funny conincidence: during my latest workshop with a good client of mine I gave all to transmit my conviction for SF (I was so enthousiastic after Aokis presentation at Balatonfüred) and it was really successfull. One of the participants called me afterwards because he had told a lot at home and his daughter (16 years old) wanted to get  to know "this lady" (=me).

Let's keep in touch about this subject. I wish you all the best for j-sol4!

Have a great day, best regards, Julia

Jumpstart into Solution Focus

You want to learn more about "Solution Focus"?

You prefer a "step by step" introduction instead to start with reading some
voluminous books?

You would appreciate to have a complete "helicopter view" on SF after the first step…
