Saitia Faaifo Annouces London, England As Stop on Major Speaking Tour
UNITED KINGDOM -- (emediacampaigns!) February 3, 2006 -- Motivational speaker and first time author, Saitia Faaifo today announced the release of his debut book, "The Riches of Respect." In Faaifo's optimistic view, respect is not limited to something that is earned. Respect is what the author calls, "the universal language." Saitia Faaifo begins a national speaking tour next week in Honolulu, Hawaii and includes appearances in the United Kingdom.
Saitia Faaifo is also a well-known senior manager with one of America's largest communication companies. The Hawaiian native and father of three has happily made California his home for the past 21 years. In his book, Faaifo chronicles his life's personal and professional experiences and transitions in an engaging and detailed format. The author says that his aim is to initially make an impact on his own culture by serving as a role model and encouraging massive achievement. "I want to get their attention and realize that, if an "Island Boy" can come to California and become a leadership figure in both the community and at work, then the next generation of children with diversity backgrounds can become astronauts, and entrepreneurs," he stated.
"In the book, I use myself and my experiences to tell a story that is, in the end, not about me," says Faaifo. "My story simply illustrates the principles and practices that I have adopted as a way of life allowing me to rise from truly, humble beginnings, to become both a key manager at a major U.S. corporation, and a motivational speaker," he added.
"The Riches of Respect" is a tremendous guide for living and is loaded with real-life examples which demonstrate the author's win-win and team-building philosophies. The author tells his story in a refreshingly, insightful and conversational style. For example, on page 14 he shares, "A Lesson In Leadership From My Heart." Here, Saitia Faaifo masterfully depicts his experience about his decision to ignore peer pressure and openly support a female classmate who had experienced a lifetime of torment and teasing because of a disfigured face.
"I wanted to leave a powerful legacy for the communities in diversity; for the multi-cultured society in our current generation, as well as the ones to come," commented Faaifo. "I knew that even though I perform speaking engagements, I usually can impact the lives in my audiences with my book. I am hoping will be able to leave my legacy and generate a huge impact for all those who read it."
What makes Saitia Faaifo's book unique is its comprehensiveness. The reader will enjoy the straightforward, lesson-filled stories and respective themes. It is a must-read for every boardroom and classroom.
