Award Winning Author | International Speaker | Spiritual Entrepreneur
As a marketing strategist I’ve worked with Pauline in the capacity of advisor and friend. With the hundreds of people I have worked with one-on-one, rarely have I observed in an individual such a pragmatic business sense balanced by integrity, honesty and respect. In my estimation, Pauline typifies the archetype of the independent business-woman driven by a clear sense of purpose. Fueled by this mission, she’s helped shape a business and profile that is at the very top of its niche. While, at the same time, creating and nurturing a workplace environment where employees act like owners. Her message is always one of profound insight and revelation. And I always find her views to be thought provoking personally and professionally for myself.
I had the pleasure of working with Pauline Nguyen when she joined the cast of our theatre work The Serpentʼs Table. This was a sold-out hit at Sydney Festival 2014, and its success was due in no small part to Paulineʼs powerful contribution. Pauline is a gifted writer and a compelling speaker. Her stories are drawn from rich life experiences and are imbued with the wisdom of someone who has overcome difficult and challenging circumstances to become a successful businesswoman, best-sellling author, inspiring mentor and devoted mother. The qualities that have made this possible are obvious: courage, persistence, imagination and a generosity of spirit. With a sense of adventure sheʼs always up for exciting new challenges, and is as eager to learn.
Pauline is an extremely inspiring individual. She captivated the audience of nearly 500 guests from the moment she took the stage. In the over 7 years’ experience I have had arranging and viewing speakers at our events, it is the first time that I could have ever heard a pin drop from start to finish. Pauline’s ability to engage with the audience and hold them in the palm of her hand, for 40 minutes, was nothing short of exceptional. Pauline was extremely professional and generous, both in her interactions with the committee and guests after the talk. She stayed behind long after the fact to sign books and take photos. I have no hesitation in recommending Pauline as an inspiring and engaging speaker for any event.
I want Pauline to tell me more
Pauline is one of the most beautiful, humble, kind hearted but at the same time gritty and truly authentic people I have ever met. When I have heard her speak it has rocked me to the core. I love her approach to life and business and I love that she’s not afraid to stand up for what she believes in, fight the good fight and make some serious positive changes in this world.
The first time I heard Pauline share some of her inspirational story I was blown away. Therefore I was thrilled when she accepted the opportunity to speak for the League of Extraordinary Women community in Sydney. Pauline’s amazing achievements mean she is well equipped to deliver inspiration and practical tips on a number of topics including leadership, innovation & delegation.
Long after Pauline Nguyen leaves the room, her existence will baffle you, while her insights will agitate you. If you are not careful, her purpose will mystify you. Her focus will distract you. Her energy will overwhelm you. Her history will exhaust you. And, her journey will scare you. Indeed, she has lived at double speed, and endured hardships at twice the intensity.
Pauline is an absolute powerhouse who is on a rapid path of progression and enlightenment. That’s great for her; what’s great for those she comes into contact with is that when she shares her insights and wisdom people listen, take note and change. This makes her a very special human being and someone I am privileged to know.
Pauline Nguyen is a powerful communicator with a unique and compelling story to share. As a leading businesswoman, creative talent and community leader she engages her audiences with insights from a life lived deeply and fiercely. Her writings – whether in her blog or in her theatrical work are a source of constant inspiration to me.
I would rate Pauline Nguyen as one of the best speakers I’ve had the pleasure of listening to and working with. Her passionate delivery about her early family life coming to Australia and subsequent business success was truly inspiring and thoroughly enjoyed by all in attendance.
Pauline is a mighty force of nature. A highly successful entrepreneur with a powerful message the world greatly needs to hear. Her leadership and wisdom is truly inspiring.
Pauline is a bold and courageous woman who is not afraid to think big in life.
From the moment I met Pauline Nguyen, I honestly sensed that this lady was very special. Her aura and energy captivates you and her story transcends you to a better place of understanding and perspective. Thank you Pauline from the bottom of my heart. My wish is for all the people on this planet to hear your story and benefit from the inspiration you have given me and my conference delegates.
Pauline was fantastic to work with and the feedback we received was consistently 9/10 or 10/10 from our attendees. I can’t praise her enough.
Pauline was fantastic! She appealed to all delegates in our very diverse audience. There were moments in her presentation where you literally could have heard a pin drop!
I was fortunate enough to attend the National Harcourts Conference in Wellington New Zealand, where the first Guest speaker was Pauline Nguyen. This was definitely a stand out performance for the conference and I heard a lot of people comment on how this was their favourite memory of the 3 day event. Pauline has a wonderful way of storytelling taking you on an interesting path of the tapestry of her life, which was a mixture of devastation, desperation and determination. She captured the attention and hearts of everybody in the room as she told her story of her life. It was heart felt, relatable and she has a wonderful delivery of storytelling, almost taking you back in time on the journey with her. Pauline is one of the best professional speakers I have seen, it awakens you to what’s possible even when it feels against all odds.
Pauline is a magnificent creative force, and to be in her presence is an honour. She is a unique woman who both motivates and challenges your beliefs and actions, with the higher purpose of becoming a better person, and contributing more to the world. I had the distinct pleasure of hosting an event with Pauline for the Mama Creatives community and she elevated the room to another orbit. She has a natural ability for storytelling, and her courage and honesty is truly inspiring. Pauline is the real deal, full of wisdom with a deeply generous spirit, immeasurable depth to inspire others to grow, learn and seize every moment of life. You couldn’t ask more of a speaker, or person.
It is rare for someone to inspire the heart and mind; almost unheard of to speak to the soul as well. Pauline manages it with ease. She combines an honesty and vulnerability with a confidence that is engaging to listen to – the audience of over 300 was captivated from start to finish. She offered practical advice but so much more; her personal story, told with humour and grace, and simple concepts that really resonated. The energy in the room after Pauline’s talk was amazing and, for days afterwards, I had people approach me to share how her talk had inspired them. A fantastic experience and she is without a doubt one of the best speakers I’ve had the pleasure to listen to.
Pauline was a guest speaker at Optus in our ‘Women in Leadership’ series. As soon as Pauline went on stage, I knew she was going to bring something different.
Everything that she said – from the obstacle being the way, to leadership being about making leaders of others and leading from behind, living a life of grace and poise and grit, and about honouring the divine feminine and seeing health in a holistic way from a neuroscientific perspective to epigenetics to meditation, etc. – I resonated with.
It made me feel emotional to have a guest speaker talk the language of the soul in a “professional” corporate setting. Something that doesn’t happen often and is powerful in its rarity. Very timely in that moment. She was a breath of fresh air and something that our women (and men) at work needed to hear.
Pauline has made an impression on the women in that auditorium. I could only hope that will be the seed to open those who listened to her words into taking the steps to live a life with courage and boldness.
Airport Retail Enterprises is a family run business and accordingly not prone to excesses; so when I started investigating a speaker/workshop presenter I could have easily been convinced not to utilise a speaker. After all I have not used one previously and still had what I consider successful conferences. I had no doubt reading Pauline’s background that there was a story and an industry relationship that would be uniquely relevant to our company so I decided to “have a go”.
Immediately after the presentation Pauline gave and then for the next 48 hours I received nothing but positive feedback. People that have been to many conferences commented “Best speaker I have ever heard” or “Best part of the conference”.
There was a lot more to this than I could ever have expected. Great Speaker, Great Person, Great Experience.
