"Kainoa was an integral part of "Aloha" training for the APEC Conference here in Hawaii. His simple, yet profound stories and discussion on the integration of true Hawaiian Hospitality and the often misunderstood "Aloha Spirit" into personal and business life will lead you down a path of introspection - to a foundation of respect, loyalty, and honor. Kulia i ka nu'u!"

"Kainoa is an excellent public speaker who is well versed in a number of areas including but certainly not limited to Native Hawaiian Cultural Hospitality Training and Event Hosting. He is a pleasure to know, and I look forward to working with him providing our C-Level Hawaiian Cultural Training in the very near future."

"Kainoa is an incredible and gifted speaker. He can captivate a a small audience and a group large enough to fill the entire MACC auditorium. He works very well with everyone and is professional and personable. I recently worked with him has he held a private session on Hawaiian Studies with world traveled Gospel Singer Joshua Nelson. He is incredibly knowledgeable in this area."
