Kerrith H. (Kerry) King, 79, is the founder and president of Community Communications. Kerry has been a Communication Skills Coach in Hawaii for forty-three years. He has consulted for such clients as Mike McCormack Realtors (Hawaii's largest realtor)  Hobart Corp., Budar Advertising, the president of Pacific Construction (builders of the Ala Moana Shopping Center), R. M. Towill Corp. (builders of the Honolulu Airport), U.S. Postal Service—Oahu, the chief psychiatrist of Leahi Hospital, Hawaii Child Care Centers (a school system), the Director of the State Department of Health—Big Isle, the manager of John Hancock Life Insurance of Hawaii—Oahu, many educators, attorneys, doctors, dentists and thousands more. Kerry's B.A. and M.A. degrees are in Speech-Communication and has taught part-time for the University of Hawaii's Speech/Communication Department on the Manoa and Hilo campuses as well as for the distinguished JAIMS (Japanese-American Institute of Management Science).

Prior to becoming a consultant Kerry was a career military officer. He served as an enlisted man in the Navy on submarines and then with UDT-21 (Underwater Demolition Team - Class 20) now called SEALs. He left the Navy to go to college and transferred, through the R.O.T.C., to the Army and did two tours in Vietnam. He served both as an Infantry Platoon Leader (173rd Airborne) and as an Infantry Company Commander (82'nd Airborne). A gunshot wound ended his military career. He has two bronze stars (one for valor) and two purple hearts.

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 Hawaii Coalition to Stop Food Irradiation." That one workshop evolved into what's now called Community Communications (ComCom), a nonprofit, 501(c)(3), education organization. The political activists of the Big Isle were responsible for enrolling more than 1000 participants into the Communication-Skills Workshop for Community Leaders, a.k.a., Introduction to Leadership-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 speech/communication.  Ninety-five percent of the critiques written by ComCom's workshop participants report favorably. Most participants say it transforms their experience of communication.

Kerry does three-hour communication coaching consultations for individuals, couples, and small-groups. He's also facilitates weekend-long workshops, and is available as a  guest lecturer for graduation commencement exercises.
