Corporate Speaker Testimonials
Dr. Trina was the perfect speaker to launch our "It's a Mom's Life" Southcentre Mall speaker series. The ladies LOVED her funny, educational and dynamic presentation. We can highly recommend her as a great speaker for any other women's groups.
Dr. Trina caught everyone’s attention the moment she began to speak. Her confidence and boldness in knowing her subject and audience is balanced by her humor and warm personality. Momcafé Moms are looking forward to having Trina speak again.
Thank you for being such a memorable part of our conference. Your presentation, “The Other Bedside: Helping Nurses To Have Fresh and Meaningful Sex” was engaging, provocative, funny and bold. While you provided us much “food for thought”, your lesson on enhancing sensory awareness was enthusiastically embraced by the crowd. Our conference breakfast the following morning was the scene for practicing this strategy, and by the sounds coming from the room, it was a very “pleasurable”
Our Mona Lisa brunch Dr. Trina spoke at was a great success and the topic of conversation all week long. Dr. Trina was a treat to have and definitely well received. I am sure the ladies will be looking for her, hoping to catch some of her more candid speaking engagements.
Enerplus understands the importance of work and home life balance and its affect on employee morale. We invited Dr. Trina Read to talk about what stress can do to our closest relationships. Everyone found her seminar both valuable and useful, with concrete ideas we could use immediately with our personal and professional relationships.
Your presentation was informative, motivating, inspirational and laced with humour. Your ability to think on your feet and fully answer questions was superb. You are without doubt one of the top speakers we have had this year and we very much appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to address us. I cannot recommend you highly enough to any other group who would be fortunate enough to have you present to them on a subject you obviously know very well. Our members will be taking your advice and comments to heart over the summer to finish their writing projects.
We have had Dr. Trina back by popular demand over the past five years. She has been speaking at The Pajama Party events in Jasper, Lake Louise and Toronto and her talks are perfect for our group as they are clean, funny and full of great information. Reviews from our Pajama Party gals are always extremely favorable. We look forward to inviting Dr. Trina back to hear what she has to say.
Dr. Trina has done several talks for our group and is consistently the most requested to come back and speak again. She makes moms feel at ease with themselves and with their sexuality. She has a wonderful way of empowering, encouraging and celebrating women. Her warmth, honesty and fantastic humour bring a sense of connection and bonding for all in attendance.
For the past three years, Dr. Trina has presented her “Are You Having Married Woman Sex?” program for Women's Health Resources. We have rarely sold out so quickly in our twenty-three year history of giving workshops. In fact, we had to add multiple dates to accommodate the number of women who wanted to attend. Best of all, the feedback forms always come back with excellent reviews.
In today's increasingly busy society it is easy to allow work deadlines and family pressures to over take every aspect of your life. Dr. Trina Read's discussion on the effects of stress on intimacy served as a great reality check for our group. Not only did it remind us that intimacy comes in many forms, not just sex, but it also served to reinforce in a mature and respectful manner the importance maintaining a healthy love life with your partner. Our company is committed to ensuring that our employees practice total health, which includes mind, body and spirit and intimacy forms an integral part of that total health package. We would absolutely recommend this program to any other company seeking to encourage healthy lifestyles in their employees.
We have invited Dr. Trina to speak at our Taboo Sex shows in Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Red Deer and Vancouver for the past five years. Her talks are well received by the diverse crowds who attend our shows, usually with standing room only! As well, we find her incredibly easy and professional to work with. We look forward to continuing our relationship as the Taboo Shows continue to grow.
Dr. Trina presented “What Kind of Sex Are You Having?” as the kick off to our MommySmart speaker series.

Rave reviews from ticket holders ensure that she will be on our speaker list for 2010.

I am a marital and family therapist who often needs to address sexuality issues in the course of my therapy. I also do public workshops occasionally.
I very much appreciated you column of August 21st and look forward to the "Letter to Women" to which you referred.
I would ask your permission to distribute your columns, but wanted to know that if you have considered producing them in a more professional looking format - rather than my simply providing a photocopy of the newspaper article.
You deserve an award for your brilliant article on “Sex Ed for Seniors” in today’s Calgary Herald. Thank you for communicating to a wide audience on the issues of safe sex for people over 50. It was full of valuable, often startling information about the risks people over fifty face when they are cavalier about their sexual practices.
I can't tell you how happy I was to read in our local community paper this morning that your column will be featured. Would you ever consider coming to Winnipeg to speak?
Just to give you an idea of who is writing to you I am in my mid seventies and have been married to the same woman for 48 years...
I so thoroughly enjoyed your recent article on "The Secret to Lasting Longer" I clipped the column and have referred to it off and on the past month. The subject, and the act of masturbation, is one that most people quiver with embarrassment when confronted with. Without doubt you must have received many a response that ranged from great humour to greater pathos...
Thank you for an article articulating a sensitive topic with a refreshing frankness that tickled my fancy.
Congratulations on completing your Doctorate of Human Sexuality! We need more women like you.
I've been reading your thought-provoking and informative articles since the Calgary Herald starting publishing you. I was quite fascinated with your "open relationships" and "swinging" pieces...
Wishing you continued success in your ground-breaking profession
I am a busy mom of four and over weight, I'd like to feel sexy too! Help!
Thank you for you insightful column in today's Calgary Herald. (June 28). I read the article with interest as I am a 49 yr old male married for 13 yrs and fit into your "demographic"...
I've been meaning for some time to drop you a line and let you know how much I enjoy your columns. I love your writing style. I always come away with something to think about, and almost always learn something as well. The latest one, on romance novels, was a particular pleasure, since I'm acquainted with a number of amateur writers of erotica.
Do you have other columns that I should be reviewing? I seem to have just picked up on your work. Is it a monthly column?
Thank you in advance for anything else you can share that would be relative these articles. Last month's looks interesting as well.
Doctor, I am the president of a Retirees group and publish a small newsletter for the same group. We comprise a group of around 225 members. Our Newsletter mailing list is the same size…I recently read your article on Seniors and Sex in the Lance and would like to share the article with my readers. Would you grant permission to reproduce your article as written in the Lance???
