As a sought-after trainer in Hawaiʻi’s visitor industry, Kainoa has instructed thousands of executives and employees from the state’s largest resorts and the lead trainer for Maui County in preparation for the international APEC meeting in 2012.


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!
