Award Winning Author | International Speaker | Spiritual Entrepreneur
Pauline is one of Australia’s most successful entrepreneurs…but with difference. She is inspiration with substance. She speaks with warmth and humour, telling her own story of what can be achieved through hard work and determination. She has a high performing western business background combined with an eastern slant of spirituality.
Having escaped Vietnam on a boat and survived a Thai refugee camp, her achievements are all the more impressive. Pauline is a best-selling author and award-winning businesswoman. She has overcome adverse beginnings to transform her approach to success by re-engineering her beliefs, questioning the status quo and hacking cultural norms. Pauline’s unique life experiences have given her a distinctive insight into the minds of individuals and businesses alike, allowing her to pass on the invaluable skills of self-mastery, courage, resilience and grit. Pauline says “If we can learn the tools of self-mastery, we can better practice the art of influence over others.”
Pauline’s achievements are many. She is the owner of Red Lantern, the most awarded Vietnamese restaurant in the world. In 2012, she won the Australian Telstra Business Award for Medium Business.
But that is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Pauline’s achievements; her memoir, Secrets of the Red Lantern, has been critically acclaimed around the world and appeared in numerous bestseller lists. She holds a BA in Communications at the University of Technology, Sydney and in 2008 won Newcomer Writer of the Year at the Australian Book Industry Awards.

I want Pauline to speak at my event
Tell me more about red lantern
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.
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.
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.
