Kaala Souza      

Motivational Speaker and Trainer on Customer Service, Leadership, Teamwork, Diversity and Communication

Ka’ala Souza is the owner of Ka’ala Souza Training and Consulting where his major goal is assisting others in achieving theirs. Born and raised in Hawaii, on the island of Oahu, with a background in marketing research and as the senior pastor of the church Hope Chapel Mana’olana, Ka’ala brings a unique perspective to his work.

Kaala has been making a living as a speaker, consultant and trainer since 1999 when he left his job as a marketing researcher and program evaluator at SMS Research in Honolulu. It was the proverbial launch from the nest with wings frantically flapping. His wife and children had a tough time trying to explain his new job to their friends. According to Micah Souza, his youngest son, his dad “talks.” He does. A lot.

He speaks at companies, schools, conferences, seminars and at home (to his kids). He’s worked with many of the top 20 largest companies in Hawaii as well as not-for-profit groups, clubs and organizations throughout the state including Queens/Diagnostic Laboratory Services, HMSA, and the Kamehemeha Schools. His consulting and training includes leadership and management development, communication, teambuilding and customer service. He has a gift to connect with diverse audiences, make them laugh, think, get motivated and grow. Kaala is also very active in training with the City and County of Honolulu and Kauai where he’s working on contributing to an increase in the spirit of Aloha in the public sector.

He and his family enjoy all things outdoors including surfing, standup paddling, fishing and diving. He works out with his wife and friends in his garage gym doing (or at least trying to do) the ridiculously intense Crossfit workouts, jujitsu and kickboxing.
