|In January, ACE started an online booking system tailor-made for the school by Mariko Moribe, one of our level-4 students. Mariko is a true self-starter. After several years experience working for another computer systems company, Mariko set up her own company 5 years ago and uses her expertise to utilize technology to solve business problems.
As our student, Mariko had obviously noticed that technologically-speaking, I am a dinosaur. Of course, she was far too polite to mention that, but when she offered to help us computerize our class reservation system, I was delighted. Finally, I could fulfill one of my dreams. I could become digital man!

Well, not exactly. This is top secret (and I know it will come as a shock), but I haven’t got a clue how our new system actually works. Fortunately, I have more digitally-minded staff who seem (or at least pretend) to understand the system. Of course, never one to miss an opportunity, F-chan said she’s prepared to teach me how to use the new system (so I can look good in front of the students) if I double her salary.
Of course, there were some problems when the system first went “live” but Mariko worked tirelessly (and until the early hours of the morning for a few days) to iron out the early glitches. Within a very short time, the system was running smoothly and our students can now reserve their classes 24/7. Better still, I can now fire at least two of the staff because I don’t need them anymore
As well as helping to reduce personnel costs, I was very impressed with Mariko’s professionalism and clear-thinking approach to solving our problems. She added a tremendous amount of value to our first basic ideas and proved herself to be a very talented thinker. In my candid opinion, this is a lady with a very bright future.
So, if you need a fabulous computer system from a great thinker, call me!
I’ll tell you Mariko’s phone number.
For my usual fee
