During the pandemic, our educational organization wanted to offer our member schools virtual professional development that was not only timely during the current circumstances, but relevant going forward. Dr. Shimi Kang facilitated a webinar for our educators and school administrators that hit the nail on the head. Her talk incorporated neuroscience, social-emotional learning, and words of wisdom that encouraged and inspired our participants. Despite the virtual delivery, Dr. Kang was interactive, warm, and engaging. We participated in live polls, asked questions, and felt like we were in this together, despite the distance. Dr. Kang left us all feeling like we had spent an hour learning from a new (wiser) friend. The content was relatable and we had real strategies to implement in our lives inside the classroom and beyond. Dr. Shimi Kang is an outstanding presenter with a deep well of knowledge that she shares with ease. I am looking forward to inviting her back again in the future!

Shimi’s presentation experience shined through. Her timing was impeccable and at one point in her presentation, she displayed only a black screen for 40 seconds. This was probably the most dramatic moment of the night.

It was an honor and privilege to meet Dr. Kang and introduce her as this year’s keynote for Davis Parent University. Dr. Kang’s lecture was outstanding with strong content, helpful tips, and suggestions. Her gift of presenting was just as powerful, as she developed a bond and engaged the 450 attendees from the minute she walked on stage to her successful book signing followed by her Q &A. Dr. Kang and her book continue to be the conversation at parties, meetings and school functions. We love her!

Dr. Kang's presentation, Optimizing Mindfulness for the New 21st Century Intelligence, aligned perfectly with the theme and her science based techniques offered participants thoughtful strategies and data to implement moving forward, both during their personal and professional journey.

Dr. Shimi Kang was an absolute hit at our event! Her talk on “Finding Balance in an Imbalanced World” really connected and resonated with our group. Dr. Kang was an absolute pleasure to work with. She adjusted her talking points to incorporate our company’s examples to make it meaningful to our audience which was greatly appreciated.

Just an incredible speaker who brings evidence to understanding human behaviors. Very engaging. Very tactical. It is refreshing to see theory and practical application so nicely woven together. She is an actual expert, with real experience. She provided applicable tools that just within the last 2 days I have already referred to a few times.

Dr. Kang was a fabulous speaker for our conference! She connected with each attendee like they were the only one in the room even though there were over 800 people. From the very beginning of the planning stage she was engaged and wanted to know exactly what was going on in our community so she could make sure she touched on the most important and relevant topics. She gave three presentations during the conference, but people never got tired of hearing her. Her rooms kept filling up to max capacity, when a room holds 400-800 people that is hard to do. We are so grateful that Dr. Kang was part of our conference!

We’d like to thank Dr. Kang for helping us take the Portland PMI Annual Conference to another level. Her opening keynote on Leadership in the Workplace captivated 450 Project Managers with ‘wonderful, tactical takeaways for personal and professional life’ and was ‘inspirational’ to others. Attendees also enjoyed the audience participation and practicality of her other presentation on Adaptability, presented to another full house. It is easy to see why – she articulates her expertise with genuine warmth and a complete connection with the audience – tailoring the contents specifically for our attendees.
