Inspirational Keynote Speaker & Comedian
Anh Do is without doubt, one of Australia's most talented and in demand keynote speakers and entertainers. He has hosted his own shows including Anh Does Vietnam, Anh's Brush with Fame, and his Olympic special, Made in China with Anh Do. Anh authored the award-winning autobiography The Happiest Refugee, and has made regular appearances on Thank God You're Here, Spicks and Specks, Rove, Dancing With The Stars and The Footy Show. An extraordinary comedian and speaker, he has entertained, motivated and impacted the lives of thousands and thousands, young and old, at community and corporate events in Australia and throughout the world.
Anh Do arrived in Australia aged two, on an eight metre fishing boat with 47 other Vietnamese Refugees cramped in like sardines. Anh was sick from de-hydration, water had run out days prior, and one person had already died.
Despite a challenging start, by the time he was 30 years old, Anh Do held a Bachelor of Business and a Bachelor of Law and had been voted Winner - Comedian of the Year. An accomplished writer, actor, and film producer, he has also been recognised as the Winner - NSW Triple J Raw Comedy Champion and received the Winner - Thank God You're Here Trophy. In 2010 he published his autobiography, The Happiest Refugee. A talented cook and artist, he used his skills to develop television shows Anh Does Vietnam and Anh's Brush with Fame.
Anh Do's ups and downs, trials and tribulations, difficulties and successes as a refugee over three decades makes for an incredible and amazing inspirational tale that has audiences gripped with emotion one minute and howling with laughter the next. The result is always a room transformed. From language difficulties to divorcing parents, from being broke to being bullied, from becoming a lawyer to becoming Comedian of the Year... Anh uses all his life's experiences to entertain and inspire.
Anh Do speaks about:
Comedy Spot - Having left a job at Anderson Consulting to become a corporate comedian, Anh has a unique insight into what it takes to host the perfect corporate event. Indeed, he is renowned for being the comedian who is absolutely corporate friendly. Anh injects every event with excitement, laughter and energy.
Keynote - The Renegade Mindset - how to prosper in uncertain times - Anh believes the uncertain times we face are actually an invitation to grow...he uses his life story to give your audience the tools to turn hard times into bottom line results. Anh Do's keynote can be tailored to suit conference themes including and combining teamwork, leadership, goal setting, and change management.
MC - When Anh MC's an event he doesn't just read out the name of whose speaking next. He uses both his humour and inspirational life story to lift the entire event to another level. One recent client summed it up when she said that the several hundred people who were at the event were "changed people" by the end of the conference.
Everyone loved Anh. I'm sure a lot of people thought he was there to do a comedy skit and were surprised by his story. As you know we had him for our MC as well and he did a brilliant job of this also. After the awards ceremony, he spent a lot of time with everyone talking, taking photos & even having a dance. We would thoroughly recommend him to anyone.
Heritage Building Society
He certainly was the perfect choice for our MC and I was extremely happy that we secured him for the event. Even more pleasing was his performance on the day and the friendly and relaxed manner with which he conducted himself. As MC, Anh was both entertaining and formal as the ceremony required. He got the tone and the balance of the ceremony spot on and is a very talented speaker.

Anh is my first choice when it comes to working with the team to create performance breakthroughs…it is wonderful to see so many people many months after his session still ‘living’ his words.
Simply Amazing!!!...he received a standing ovation at the end of his performance.
Anh Do is not your usual keynote speaker. He is different. And what makes him different is the way he lives his life in the moment he calls "now or too late". Anh gets his audience to think about important strategies for success and demonstrates his ideas through his values and life stories. He makes people laugh and even shed a tear over what really matters. I would recommend Anh to any company that is looking for a key note speaker that can motivate and entertain. It was an absolute pleasure working with Anh and I applaud the difference he is making from his successful caree.
Anh is the consummate professional and took a lot of time to learn about our business and the people involved - he has a strong inspirational message and is just a great performer - I'd recommend Anh unreservedly.
Inspiring, positive, uplifting… Brilliant

The audience absolutely loved him, everyone thought he was extremely funny and motivational. The stories he tells are from the heart and that’s what people like. After the event I was approached by so many people that said it was the best speaker we have ever had in the last 8 years of running these events.
Parramatta City Council
Anh was very well received by the university community. We had over 500 people register to attend his talk and a very full theatre on the night. The students wanted more of him afterwards and we received a lot of positive feedback from everyone who attended the talk. The audience really appreciated his style, he made us feel like we were just having a chat and he shared so many personal details of his journey.
