Prior to becoming a consultant Kerry was a career military

After consulting and teaching on Oahu for thirteen years,
Kerry retired to the Big Isle. In 1988 he donated an
Organization Communication Workshop to the "East

Big Isle were responsible for enrolling more than
1000 participants into the Communication-Skills Workshop

Kerry's military training experiences represent proven
educational processes having to do with teamwork and
excellence. He has integrated these various leadership/communication models
with what is currently being taught in the fields of human potential and
percent of the
critiques written by our
workshop participants report favorably. Most participants say
it transforms their experience of communication.

tutorials to include the
