GAIL MUKAIHATA HANNEMANN - Chief Executive Officer for the Girl Scout Council of Hawaii

Being a mayor’s wife and a career person herself, it seems that there is so much pressure on Gail Mukaihata Hannemann, but apparently she enjoys every moment of her waking life. Gail Hannemann spent more than 15 years in Washington D.C. as congressional aide and professional staff member of the U.S. House of Representatives prior to moving to Hawaii in 1992. Married to Honolulu mayor Mufi Hannemann, Gail currently serves as CEO of the Girl Scouts Council of Hawaii and an active member of various community organizations.

When asked how it felt to be married to the mayor of Honolulu, Gail said that it made her life better in a sense that it became more organized yet stayed appealing. Their professional career, according to Gail, makes for an interesting conversation during the end of the day, which puts their relationship on even stronger ground despite their busy schedules.

SUSAN PAGE - VP of Coffee Enterprises, Inc. and columnist for Mid Week

Susan Page embodies everything that characterizes today’s powerful career women. As a profession, Susan has become a model, fashion-oriented entrepreneur, emcee, radio show host, public speaker, and writer. But despite all her conquests and successes as a career person, Susan still considers her involvement in the family and raising children as the greatest achievement of her life.

On the other side that tips the scale lies Susan’s commitment to the community. Susan has co-hosted the Kapiolani Children’s Miracle Network telethon and specials for 22 years and currently serves as a director on the boards of the Kapiolani Health Foundation, Women In Need, and is Vice Chair of the national board of the humanitarian faith-based organization, Heart for Africa. Her involvement with the latter made her realize how minute and irrelevant her problems were relative to those she came across with in Africa.

JERRY COFFEE - Retired Navy captain, keynote speaker, author and media commentator

Retired Navy Captain Jerry Coffee has spent 7 years and 9 days as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam, mostly in solitary confinement. Captain Coffee, along with his comrades, endured physical and psychological torture, not to mention the agony of being away from home and loved ones.

To this day, his experience serves as an inspiration to thousands, or even millions, around the world—his story withstanding the test of time. Capt. Coffee considered those years under communist incarceration an episode that should be heard, and this became his purpose. Retiring from the military, Capt. Coffee started a civilian career as a professional speaker and author, sharing his stories to thousands of people across America and overseas.

  THE BUZZ - Greater Good Radio marks a milestone

Filed under: Press — jayr - @ 1:36 am

THE BUZZ by Erika Engle
Star Bulletin Article Link

GREATER GOOD Radio is one year old and celebrated its birthday at the new Pearl nightclub on Friday.
Mayor Mufi Hannemann was traveling, but his proclamation declaring September 2006 Greater Good month was presented.

Greater Good Radio first hit the air on KKEA-AM 1420 Sept. 3 of last year because of a conversation between a pole-vaulting coach and local businessman Duane Kurisu, who is also a minority investor in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin.

The show has featured interviews of more than 120 business leaders from Hawaii and elsewhere, with the goals of inspiring a new generation of leaders and of conveying the importance of serving the community, not as an aside, but as part of the business plan.
