Becker Communications, Inc. presents '25 Ways to Show Aloha' | Business
As a kick-off to the Lei Day weekend, and in celebration of its 25th anniversary, Becker Communications, Inc. is presenting 25 Ways To Show Aloha, and announcing a “favored” idea submitted by an employee of the Honolulu Board of Realtors.
Earlier this year, the company invited more than 35 clients’ employees to submit their favorite ways to show Aloha. A panel of judges, which included Entertainer Danny Kaleikini, Mountain Apple Company’s Leah Bernstein, and Life Enhancement Institute of the Pacific’s Ramsay Taum, reviewed the entries, from which one submission was named the best way to show Aloha.
The winner was Brenda Kailieha, public records support specialist for HiCentral MLS, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Honolulu Board of Realtors, for her submission:
“Communicate honestly and people will feel your authenticity. Speak from your heart and focus on the good and positive in others.”
“We received quite a number of suggestions, every one of them excellent and heartfelt. It speaks to the very real presence of the Aloha spirit here in Hawaii,” said Becker Communications President Ruth Ann Becker. “The winning submission was simple, thoughtful and effective; something everyone can do on a daily basis to share Aloha with others.”
Team members from Becker Communications recently surprised Kailieha at her office with a cupcake party, and presentation of the grand-prize award – an overnight stay at the Hilton Waikiki Beach, dinner for two at Duke’s Waikiki, a massage for two at Spa Olakino of Paul Brown Salon, and a hair consultation and styling by Paul Brown at his Ward Centre salon.

Becker Communications’ year-long 25th Anniversary was launched earlier this year with an award of $25,000 in Pro Bono PR to the Domestic Violence Action Center, and a special anniversary section on its website. Additional plans for the anniversary celebration will include the creation of a 25th anniversary time capsule, Twitter and Facebook campaigns and an interactive 25-year historical timeline.
