Pauline Nguyen Speaker Biography

Described by Huffington Post as, “The most grounded spiritual entrepreneur on the planet”, recognized as an original ‘Rare Bird’ – Australia’s top 50 Influential Female Entrepreneurs and included in Blackwell and Hobday’s global recognition of ‘200 Women Who Will Change the Way You See the World’, Pauline Nguyen is nothing short of extraordinary. Pauline is a best-selling author and award-winning businesswoman – and her achievements are all the more impressive given she had to escape a war-torn Vietnam on a handmade boat, survive a Thai refugee camp, and endure years of tremendous physical and emotional abuse. She has overcome these adverse beginnings – what she refers to as “her training” – transforming her approach to success by re-engineering her beliefs, questioning the status quo, and hacking cultural norms to become one of Australia’s most successful entrepreneurs. She is the owner of Red Lantern, the most awarded Vietnamese restaurant in the world, and author of The Way of Spiritual Entrepreneur and Secrets of the Red Lantern, which has been critically acclaimed worldwide and has appeared on numerous bestseller lists. Pauline speaks and teaches from direct experience with a unique, dramatic cadence that literally has the audience hanging on every word.

UNSHAKEBALE – How to move from Transactional to Transformational
These last couple of years have proved one certainty - there is no certainty. But what if you could walk away from your event with one absolute certainty? Their unwavering internal certainty. No matter what role you play in your industry, Pauline Nguyen explains how your organization can innovate, thrive, and grow, starting with the most important foundation in your business - YOU. Self-Leadership is Key. Self-Mastery is Key. Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom. As a gifted storyteller, working CEO, and through her lens of self-mastery, this dynamic force combines her knowledge and personal experience to provide the stories, tools and strategies to master your inner game so that you can unlock your infinite potential – Fearless, Stress-Free and Unshakable in business and in life. Because every Next Level of your life will demand a Next Level version of you. Key takeaways include:
o How to move from transactional to transformational.
o How to master the process, not the outcome.
o How to use Fear as a tailwind and not a headwind.
o Actionable strategies and takeaways for the new business paradigm.

NAVIGATING THROUGH CHANGE AND DISRUPTION – Calm Courage, Resonating Resilience, Tacit Grit
Recent times have shown on a global scale that there are no certainties in life and that disruption is unavoidable; yet Pauline’s message shines through the chaos. As she says, “Pain is inevitable, but suffering is the choice.” Pauline truly knows at a cellular level that courage is feeling the fear and doing it anyway. As a winner of the Telstra Australia Business Award for Medium Business and as an original Rare Bird (Australia’s Top 50 Influential Female Entrepreneurs), Pauline has a deep, vital understanding of what it takes to lead from the front. Speaking from direct experience, Pauline shares her invaluable skills of self-mastery, courage, resilience, and grit, and how these traits are the ultimate foundations to personal and professional success. Audiences learn:
o How to rid yourself of stress and fear to lead from a place of calm courage.
o How to be prepared to learn and prepared to act.
o Why you must shun the idea of competing with others, in order to rise to the top of your field.
o What it takes to be a leader of power and substance in times of change and disruption.
o How to create, and embody courage, resilience, and grit, at a personal and organizational level.
o Why joy, fulfilment, and inspiration is the key to a recipe of success for an organization and how to get more of it.

THE FOUR PIVOTAL COMPONENTS OF EVOLVING LEADERSHIP – Diversity & Inclusion, Vulnerable Leadership, Self-Mastery, Self-Leadership
A broad and dynamic keynote, in this powerful experience Pauline explains four of the most pivotal components in becoming a successful leader. This isn’t your regular business coaching speech - dive into deep, controversial and complex topics, distilled eloquently for execution today. Pauline explains the importance of self-mastery, required before mastering anything else in life. Drawing on learnings from running the world’s most awarded Vietnamese restaurant, Red Lantern, she imparts why true leaders hold others accountable whilst being ‘compassionately assertive’. That those who want to be part of the new future of leaders must walk the walk, not just talk the talk. From her experience coming to Australia as a refugee and eventually garnering accolades including being one of Australia’s Top 50 Influential Female Entrepreneurs, and worldwide recognition as one of 200 Women Who Will Change the Way You View the World, Pauline explains why the greatest leaders of our time lead with diversity and inclusion not as just social responsibilities, but as powerful weapons for business. Find out why The Huffington Post described Pauline as “the most grounded spiritual entrepreneur on the planet”. Audiences learn:
o Diversity and Inclusion – How embracing multiple perspectives leads to more powerfully effective problem-solving skills
o Vulnerable Leadership – How to lead with power and not force
o Self-Mastery – How to manage your energy and your emotions to become the most calm, and composed Leader
o Self-Leadership - What do Leaders Do? They go first. How to scientifically increase your intuition and awareness to intelligently lead your team with competence, courage and charisma
