"Pauline Nguyen - Award Winning Author, highly sought after International Speaker and one of the most grounded Spiritual Entrepreneurs around the globe.” 

- The Huffington Post -




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.

Pauline has achieved outstanding success as an entrepreneur, author, businesswoman and acclaimed speaker. Pauline has the skills to connect with her audience in a profound way - she helps awaken and focus people to change their own story for a better future. Pauline is also an original ‘Rare Bird’ – Australia’s top 50 Influential Female Entrepreneurs and is included in Blackwell and Hobday’s global recognition of 200 Women Who Will Change the Way You See the World.

When Pauline talks of commitment driving outcomes, people listen.
