A self-described storyteller, Bang Co is a public relations and marketing professional who is committed to inspiring leaders and advocating for self-growth through the power of storytelling. He has spent the past few years creating strategic communication plans, and is currently most passionate about helping other entrepreneurs share their success story.
As a previous Realtor turned marketer, Bang has developed some unique perspectives when it comes to capturing the stories behind his fellow agents. Inspired by storytelling icons Steve Irwin, Walt Disney and Steve Jobs, he aspires to start his business coaching and speaking career in the next stage of his journey.
Born in 1992, Bang is the eldest son to Thanh Han Co and Phuong My Thi Nguyen, who immigrated over to America from Vietnam. Bang grew up with two younger brothers, Kevin and Simon, in Lincoln, Nebraska. The family moved to Terre Haute, Indiana in 2002 where Bang would eventually attend Terre Haute South Vigo High School. It was at THS that Bang discovered his love for public speaking, leadership, and music.
After high school, Bang decided to stay close to home and attended Indiana University in the beautiful town of Bloomington, Indiana. As the first person in his family to attend college, Bang took his development seriously and partook in as many different activities as possible. He became highly involved with Alpha Chi Sigma, the IU Global Medical Brigades, Kappa Kappa Psi, and the IU Marching Hundred.
Bang is now residing in Indianapolis, Indiana where he is continuing to pursue his passions as a public speaker, leader, and musician. He has discovered throughout the past few years that he truly enjoys reading, traveling, and event planning. Bang’s current challenge is to develop a career that will allow him to integrate his newfound passions with his current trajectory as the next up-and-coming storyteller.
