Stepping Forward

Betty Nguyen is an award-winning journalist and humanitarian whose work has taken her across the globe. Her striking authenticity and powerful storytelling moves audiences to explore pressing issues that affect us all. Nguyen’s personal journey of fleeing a war-torn country and being shuttled through refugee camps before making America her home illustrates a universal theme. No matter how diverse our experiences, we all have the power within us to overcome obstacles and find the true meaning of success and happiness.

Nguyen has spent her entire career covering some of the most important issues of our time. As an anchor for NBC News and MSNBC, Nguyen covered the 2016 Presidential election, the Boston Marathon bombings, the election of Pope Francis, the birth of Prince George and the death of Nelson Mandela. Before her move to NBC, she anchored The CBS Morning News and reported for CBS This Morning, where she covered the 2012 Presidential election, the death of Osama Bin Laden, the Royal wedding and the Gulf oil spill. Prior to that, Nguyen anchored the weekend edition of CNN Newsroom where she contributed to CNN's coverage of Hurricane Katrina that earned a George Foster Peabody Award and coverage of the 2006 tsunami in South Asia that won an Alfred I. duPont award. Her reports from around the world and interviews with newsmakers and global leaders have made her a well-respected speaker on the issues of diversity, media and humanitarian aid.

Betty Nguyen is the co-founder of Help the Hungry, a global non-profit organization that aims to alleviate hunger and provide humanitarian aid to those in need. Her broad audience appeal and her engaging personality makes Betty Nguyen the perfect keynote speaker for conferences and universities alike.

Diversity: Don't Hide From It, Celebrate It!

Diversity is all around us -- in our schools, in our offices, and in our communities. Often, what sets us apart is what makes us great. By pooling together our diverse backgrounds and experiences, we increase our knowledge and find new solutions to the problems we all face as humans. Nguyen shares stories of how diversity has enriched the media and our lives.

An Evening with Betty Nguyen: From Saigon to CBS, CNN & NBC

The road to success may seem long, but it doesn't have to take a lifetime. A little luck and a lot of hard work can get you there quickly. You just have to be up for the challenge. You have to make the choice to excel. Betty Nguyen offers her secrets to a successful career and provides an inside look at covering the story.

Humanitarian Work: It Will Change Your Life

We're all searching for that sense of purpose. The answer to the question: why am I here? While family and career may drive your life, helping those in need will change your life. You'll be surprised how much you truly get from the act of giving. Nguyen takes audiences to some of the poorest regions of the world by sharing stories from her humanitarian aid trips.
