OUR SPEAKERS //
LINH PODETTI // DIRECTOR, OUTSOURCING ANGEL
Linh Podetti is an outsourcing expert, entrepreneur and owner of the internationally recognised outsourcing business, Outsourcing Angel. She also manages several other online businesses including a video production business called Monkey Video Production and an online marketing company Red & Black Solutions.
Linh Podetti was born in Vietnam in 1983 and moved to Australia when she was nine years old. She graduated with a distinction average from the prestigious RMIT University where she studied international business andspent three years working for a large corporation in supply-chain management. However, Linh Podetti soon realised that the path towards becoming a business millionaire did not involve the role of ‘employee’; it was clear to her that ownership was the most expedient route towards entrepreneurial success.
Linh Podetti founded several online businesses based on her passion for outsourcing and now has a team of close to 100 around the world. This large team is necessary for smooth operations as her companies serve the needs of hundreds of clients world-wide. Because she has professionals from all around the world, Linh’s businesses are truly 24/7 operations.
The success and freedom provided by outsourcing has also enabled Linh to focus on her passion for philanthropy. What sets her business apart is their commitment to reinvest profits to provide food supplies and job opportunities for people in developing countries – starting with the Phillippines.
Linh Podetti lives in Sydney with her three kids and husband Phillip, who is also another successful entrepreneur.
