What Yoshi can do/good at?

Yoshi has hybrid expertise on extreme fields of "global enterprise leader" and "local social entrepreneur" with 8Es of leadership ingredients. So, It could be simpler to mention what Yoshi is “NOT” good at.
He is not a creator who brings new dreams with head out of the clouds.
If you would like to think of Yoshi's role, good examples are as follows,

1.Business Partner as CFO/COO
Yoshi is strong at “Materializing”, while he is not good at creation from scratch.
if he empathize the leader’s vision, Yoshi visualizes goal and process with verbalization and numericalization the value shortly even if the vision could be vague or out of his domain, .
Then he identifies resource needed, persuade the best person for support, keep energizing team and leader to materialize.
This is the way he grew business when he was global enterprise CFO (CFO1.0). He leverages leadership 4E ingredients as Empathize, Energy, Energize, Execution.

He is also good at “Solving” problem. Listen, empathize and understand essence of the problem in deeper and wider. He visualizes goal and process as well as identify resources so that he advises or supports to solve problem quickly. He sometimes engages as project leader to solve problem or materialize objects. Also, he is a quick learner (Educate) to capture essence quickly. In these cases, he applies social entrepreneur expertise (CFO2.0).

3.Public speaker & author
He is passionately engaged as a public speaker and an author. His book reflects the secret of success in career by talking with simple figures (details in "Talk in Figures") and his pitch reflects his expertise of marketing & leadership to impact effectively.
Local activation, Career design, Business communication (Talk in Figures), which reflects the reality of his experience are major agendas Yoshi is requested. He speaks not only to business person but also, entrepreneur, governments, and students.

In each case, Yoshi applies 8Es specially “Empathize”, “Energize” and "Execution" for successful results.
Also, terms of finance expertise, he is good at management finance such as planning and analysis, but not so strong expertise finance accounting like tax and filings. He did not have a chance to engage in Fundraising or public offering as they are independently managed by special team in global enterprises.
