SPEAKING

“The best session I have attended at Adobe in 5 years. Hands down.”

“Absolutely inspiring, each word spoken with conviction with the gravity of a rich experience. you are an awe-inspiring leader Pauline.”

“Doesn’t it feel like spoken poetry? I’ve definitely gotten a second wind this evening.”

“Where do I begin, Pauline Nguyen was more than we ever expected. I have received calls from people asking how long they could replay it because they wanted to do so alone to soak up everything she had to say once more. I don’t even have words to express how good she was, for all of the 30 minutes or so she spoke and additional time spend on Q&A, she was engaging, charismatic, entertaining, riveting, candid, transparent….I’m running out of adjectives. Hands down best decision I’ve made since becoming President. She was appropriate for such a time as this and thanks to COVID she was brought forward as we never would have considered her otherwise considering the costs. So now here is the BIG problem. What in the world will we do to follow that up? She will go down in DA4S History as they best keynote we’ve ever had. Thank you for all you do and representing such great talent! We appreciate you.

I’ll let Kathy share her thoughts directly but from an overall perspective as shared with you yesterday via texts Pauline was beyond incredible. Not one person dropped offline during her keynote – the entire audience was riveted by her keynote and her story – definitely hit the jackpot with Pauline! Today still on LinkedIn people are posting about her and her story – this we have not seen before in this volume after speakers.

Thank you Arnie as always for never failing to deliver to us suggestions for keynote speakers and for only bringing the best of the best to us for all our events. We appreciate it! We appreciate you also always thinking “outside the box” and never having us go with a speaker that so many others have – we are always unique and stand out with our keynotes – kudos!”

Dee Knopp

Executive Director, Diversity Alliance for Science

“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.”

“Real, raw and relevant. Pauline gave us so much to think about through her life story, sprinkled with experience and wisdom.”
Celine Egan

CEO, The Juice Plus Company

“I had the joy of being a part Pauline’s presentation to Direct Selling Australia. Pauline’s presentation was breathtaking, mind blowing and one of the best leadership keynote speakers I have ever heard (and we hear a lot in this industry!)

She was raw, vulnerable, generous, open and so insightful. I am truly blown away. If anyone hasn’t heard her speak, they need to!

I haven’t stopped raving about her and have shared excerpts of her keynote with friends in lockdown, as well as our entire company. Thank you thank you thank you!”

Allana Hinks

Managing Director, Modere Australia

“I had the privilege of getting to see and listen to Pauline speak at our digital conference.

To engage a large group when keynote speaking can be a challenge inside itself. But to also keep a group not only engaged but on the edge of our seats when it is online and digital is another challenge all on its own.

Pauline not only did this for myself, but many other people who were also part of the group she was presenting too. Her stories from growing up and how she changed her narrative brought tears to my eyes and is a true inspiration. Then moving onto business and the transformations made inside her business of 18years, not only are they also inspiring but also aligned with my values.

Finishing with her spirituality and shamanic meditation was the icing on top. Truly showing her intrinsic energy and how many people’s lives she is capable of helping.

I can’t recommend her highly enough for business owners who want to grow their business culture and team relationships.

I look forward to the future when I am able to see her in person.”

Regional Business Initiative

“From the moment Pauline started speaking I was completely captivated into her amazing journey resonating as a female entrepreneur.

I also experienced a tough upbringing, and seeing and hearing how Pauline has reframed her experiences, developing grit and resilience to continuously be reinventing the way she shows up in her business as a fearless leader, empowering other business leaders to be the example of what is possible. Pauline left me with a feeling of inspiration, and truly tapped into my core, magnifying my human potential, and that we truly get to choose how our life and business plays out. My biggest take away is that we must expect change and learn to create change and be the change to influence collaborate, and innovate and never give up, even if it feels impossible, we must find a way no matter what. I love how Pauline has a spiritual approach to business and the 3 hours that she delivered to myself and the K2 leadership group, I truly was lost in time and space, feeling now I have so much more to achieve, create and learn. Thank you so much Pauline from my heart to yours thank you… still just so grateful.”

“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.”

“I have been in the K2 business group for over 3 years, and every 3 months we have a line-up of many business speakers and mindset speakers. However nothing compares to Pauline and her story. Her stagecraft is next level and I love that. Pauline’s keynotes were presented in a way that had me captured and enthralled and learning all at the same time. I found her immensely warm, direct and intelligent. The way her story played out was so captivating and encouraging and even though we have different stories, I was able to feel her story. It resonated deeply with me and helped me to see things differently in my own life. I loved how she married business and spirituality. This resonated with me so much and it made if feel normal to be a business woman with a spiritual side. Pauline’s story was told like the ‘heroes journey’ and we were all so very captivated with her strength, determination, self-love and self-respect as well as her connection to her soul. I could watch Pauline talk 1000 more times and never get bored. Thank you so much for enlightening me, and for a beautiful shamanic ceremony to connect deeply with my own spiritual side.

P.S. we have all asked to have you back!”

Lydia Bergantino

“Pauline is an extremely inspiring individual. She captivated the audience of nearly 500 guests from the moment she took to the stage. In the over 7 years’ experience I have had arranging and viewing speakers at our events, it is the first that I could have 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 she agrees to commit to. Her ability to articulate her life story in an honourable, genuine and entertaining way was just remarkable.”
Emma Hoolahan

President, The Association for Women In Insurance

“I cannot believe I almost missed THE most important presentation of my life!

Pauline’s webinar for Educate Plus was so powerful. I went for a walk outside, knowing that something momentous had taken place but not sure what it was.

Pauline’s words “your problems are your life’s rewards” are exhilarating! It feels as though I have been weighed down with the ‘problems’ and now, I am now equally as high with the joy that these are just obstacles that I am somehow determined to go around, through, under, over, whatever it takes.

What on earth has happened? Despondent and bordering on suicidal to… ‘Right, what’s next? Bring it on!’

Thank you and thank you 1000 times, thank you.”

Meri Roh

Professor of Educational Leadership

“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.”
Indira Naidoo

Broadcaster and Author

“Pauline is charismatic and inspiring. She is full of wisdom, depth and her work displays attention to detail. When Pauline walks in a room you feel her energy. She is prepared to share her heart and her soul with the audience. This is a rare commodity in an artist. Pauline possesses the unique characteristics of what a successful speaker needs to contribute: tenacity and determination, a committed work ethic and generosity to others. I recommend Pauline to be given any opportunity to share her life experiences with audiences.”
Darren Yap

Director, Actor, Playwrite

“What I loved most is how Pauline Nguyen expressed herself in the infinite mindset that she has as a business owner and speaker. As Pauline says, ‘We are not in competition with anyone but with ourselves.’ This tells it all where her success has come from. I would like to thank Pauline and Kerwin for such an inspirational presentation and how we can thrive post Covid-19 global pandemic.”

“Without a doubt, Pauline is one of the most powerful, engaging, and inspiring speakers I’ve had the pleasure ever to see. In a world where change is the only constant, her compelling and heartfelt story filled with courage, innovation and self-mastery is one all leaders should hear. Additionally, the feedback that I received from my top leaders was amazing to the point that we had one of our most successful months in October, which , I feel was not pure coincidence. Thank you Pauline for fuelling the opportunity that produced amazing results. Pauline has inspired my team at Life Force and I dare say many many others. Pauline would make a classic keynote speaker at any conference.”

“Within three seconds of Pauline opening her mouth, I realise something special is about to happen. Pauline manages to create a connection with every person in the room and draw them into her presence. It’s palpable. Pauline shares wisdom, wisdom of the universe intertwined with practical applications and business-mindedness. For one hour, she had us 100% in her zone. Like it was a dinner for two, eye-to-eye, over a glass of wine. I left that lunch with an elevated soul, and the utmost respect for this incredible woman. I can’t wait to devour her book ‘The Way of the Spiritual Entrepreneur.’”
Jodie De Vries

Owner, Tiny Hunter Branding Agency

“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 story telling 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 story telling, 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.”
Harcourts International

“When Pauline started speaking, her words made me sit up and pay attention. She spoke words I have never heard a speaker speak before. Her words took me by surprise and I was glued to Pauline.

We journeyed together throughout the keynote – the rawness, the honesty, the resilience and grit left us with plenty to digest. Not only did Pauline gift us her presence, she has also gifted us her book ‘The Way of the Spiritual Entrepreneur.’
Her words stick with me still.”

Stella Gianotto

Creative Director, Brands for Brands Agency

“Pauline is Excellent. She had everyone in the room totally engaged. Her story was compelling, surprising and beautifully told. I’ve had only very positive feedback from our members and her resonance with the attendees was evident by the number of book sales on the night. Pauline is a beautiful lady and we are so pleased to have had the privilege of hearing her story. I would highly recommend Pauline to speak in front of any audience.”
Pania Gregson

The Greater Narellan Business Chamber

“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.”
Nina Barcenilla

Business Analyst, Optus

“Pauline does not feel like her bio reads, an obvious formidable background as an entrepreneur is alluring. She leads with an approachable shine as connected heart-led leader, and a skilled guide through a journey of life.

She makes you feel the child, the trauma, the pain and growth, as if you live her life yourself. Then reveals the powerhouse personality, a cross between a Shaolin monk, energiser bunny and a surprising dose of unexpected badass.

Pauline is a skilled storyteller, narrating her life that captivates, inspires, breaks you down and puts you back together again. Sharing a story like no other, with words of feel with words that heal. You will not want the journey to end because you know there is so much more. As a business owner I left with a full heart, great practical tips and a desire to know more.”

Andrew Fenton

Advisor-Director, Fenton Financial

“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.”

“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.”
Glen Campbell

Managing Director, Brandheart

“Pauline is a gifted writer and 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-selling author, inspiring mentor and devoted mother. The qualities that have made it possible are obvious: courage, persistence, imagination and a generosity of spirit. With a sense of adventure she’s always up for exciting new challenges, and is as eager to learn, as she is to share her knowledge. With so much to impart, it is no surprise to see audiences hanging on to her every word. I have no hesitation in recommending Pauline Nguyen as a thoughtful, engaging and provocative speaker.”
Annette Shun Wah

Executive Producer, Performance 4a

“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, customer service, identifying a brand message and driving it hard to set a business apart within their respected industry, and most importantly the art of failing and having the strength and courage to rise back up again. I would highly recommend Pauline as a keynote speaker for any event where you are looking to engage the audience and inspire passion and energy whilst providing them with practical takeouts they can apply to their own business and life.”
Georgia Nides

League of Extraordinary Women & Founder of Zoii

“Pauline nailed the digital presentation for our K2 Elite Leadership Online Retreat.

Her inspirational, clear, precise wording about leadership was full of experience, motivation and passion. I actually look forward to going back to watch her speech again and again. It was that powerful.

I also loved her poetic hypnotic style of speaking.

I felt like my body and mind were following her rhythm. So lovely. I really did feel like it was a very special shamanic meditation and look forward to going further on this journey. Thank you so much again.

I am truly grateful for the special experience.”

Brooke McHatton

“Amazing! I loved every minute of Pauline’s presentation. Spent most of it in tears.
I couldn’t take notes fast enough. What a powerful and inspiring speaker. Her unstoppable burning desire to accomplish and be the best version of herself.

Through which she imparted so many motivational techniques and words of wisdom on how to lead an empowered life. For her first full digital presentation, she smashed it! I have lobbied hard to get her back ASAP, as have many others. She has certainly been a topic of conversation in our groups. I hope I get to see her again soon. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. Amazing.”
