Meet Your Host: Kit Pang

In 2016, I've started this monthly panel series in order to build a community where speakers and leaders could come together to get motivated, network, and discover new insights. 

As the founder of BostonSpeaks and a Harvard Business School public speaking coach, I help individuals become exceptional public speakers and presenters.  I've had the great honor to work with speakers ranging from Fortune 500 CEOs and TEDx Speakers to NFL Players and Three-Star Michelin Chefs.

When you attend the BostonSpeaksSeries - ask the questions you want to ask, virtually network with others, and get the most out of it. I want you to leave there feeling motivated and inspired. Let's crush it together!

I'm always looking to make this event better, please email me at [email protected] with any suggestions or thoughts.
