My journey is deeply rooted in life experiences and personal growth. As a Vietnamese refugee, I escaped the hardships of war as a toddler and later found my way to Australian shores after a challenging year in a Thai refugee camp. I also faced significant physical and emotional abuse in my young adulthood.
These hardships have profoundly shaped my journey, which I consider my training ground. From the ashes of trauma, I transformed into a sought-after development coach, dedicated entrepreneur, award-winning author, and international keynote speaker. My life experiences fuel my inspiration.
I'm passionate about sharing the wisdom and transformative experiences I've gained. Through my keynotes, I aim to inspire and guide others on their paths of personal growth, self-mastery, and conscious leadership. My approach blends Western business acumen and Eastern spirituality to deliver authentic and insightful messages.
As an inspirational speaker, I stand not only as someone who succeeded against the odds but as a firm believer in human potential and the power of the human spirit. My journey is a testament to the resilience of the human soul, and I'm dedicated to helping others discover their strength and capacity for growth.
Can you share some highlights of your international speaking experience and the countries you've addressed?
I've been honoured to speak internationally, sharing insights on personal growth, self-mastery, and conscious leadership. Highlights include speaking in the United States, UAE, Canada, China, Vietnam, India, and more. Engaging diverse audiences from various backgrounds and cultures has been truly enriching.
My messages on self leadership, resilience and transformation, and blending Western business acumen with Eastern spirituality resonate globally, inspiring individuals to unlock their inner potential and lead purposeful lives. Each speaking opportunity empowers others on their self-discovery journeys, and I'm privileged to have made a positive impact, and I truly look forward to more international engagements in the future.
What are the key considerations when tailoring your speeches to specific international markets or regions?
When tailoring my speeches to specific international markets or regions, I consider several key factors to ensure that my message resonates with the audience and reflects cultural nuances. My top 5 have to be:
- Cultural Sensitivity: I make it my priority to honour the spiritual norms, values, and customs of the region I'm addressing, respecting and acknowledging these spiritual differences to align my message with local spiritual sensitivities.
- Soulful Language and Communication Style: Using my experiences as a leadership keynote speaker, I adapt my speech to the language and communication style of the audience, infusing soulful expressions and idioms to create a spiritual connection and enhance relatability.
- Divine Relationships: As a motivational leadership speaker, I tailor my content to address issues and challenges relevant to the specific market or region, ensuring the audience recognises the spiritual significance of my message in their lives. I adapt my presentation style to foster collective engagement, including interactive elements, group soul-searching, and audience participation with intention.
- Sacred Storytelling: I incorporate local spiritual stories, sacred anecdotes, or examples that resonate with the audience's journey. Sharing stories familiar to their path deepens the spiritual connection and understanding.
- Spiritual References: As an international motivational speaker, the use of visuals, symbols, and metaphors can elevate the healing impact of my message, making it more engaging and deeply resonant with the soul of the audience.
What role does authenticity play in inspiring others, and how do you maintain authenticity in your speeches?
Authenticity is a cornerstone of inspiring others, fostering a genuine and trustworthy connection between the speaker and the audience. This plays a pivotal role by making the speaker more relatable, building trust, creating a deeper emotional connection, enhancing credibility, and offering a roadmap for others.
To maintain authenticity in my speeches, I love to engage in regular self-reflection, openly share my journey, focus on topics aligned with my values, prioritise the audience's needs, prepare thoroughly while staying true to my authentic self, seek feedback for improvement, and maintain consistency in my values and message, resonating deeply with the audience.
Can you discuss the importance of mindset and attitude in achieving success, as emphasised in your motivational talks?
My motivational talks inspire individuals to adopt a growth mindset, maintain positivity, and develop resilience and determination in achieving their goals. A growth mindset fosters a belief in learning and growth, while resilience, determination, and a positive attitude enable people to overcome setbacks and persist. Join me to explore self-confidence techniques, pivotal for success.
These attributes encourage a broader perspective, innovative problem-solving, and turning setbacks into stepping stones, especially in adversity. Adaptability, tied to a growth mindset, is essential for navigating change, while proactivity, aligned choices, and self-responsibility lead to empowerment. I also offer support in overcoming limiting beliefs, setting clear goals, and visualising success through a positive mindset and attitude.
