Meet Trish Kendall

International Keynote Speaker | Enduring Success Expert | Personal and Team Development Coach 

As a little girl, Trish Kendall was sexually abused by her father for seven years. Her mother suffered from depression and manic episodes, mental illnesses that proved stronger than her maternal instinct to protect her daughter. This six-year-old girl's ability to love and trust was destroyed by her father– the person daughters love and trust the most.

Her father forced the family to flee from town to town, switching schools a dozen times to prevent anyone in the community from learning about the abuse. In every town, she was the new kid who struggled to fit in and find acceptance until she just stopped trying. Trish never belonged anywhere.

In her early teens, Trish turned to the world of drugs, plunging headlong into a crystal meth addiction. She lied, stole, and traded her remaining dignity for drugs. At age 20, she chose to end her life.


Today, Trish is a highly-regarded expert at helping organizations, teams and individuals create enduring success.

Today, Trish is a loving wife and devoted mother of two children.

Today, Trish is a trusted and trusting member of her community.

Today, Trish is an inspiration to people everywhere.

As an inspirational speaker, Trish brings candid stories, humor in the face of true hardship, simple lessons, compassion and love to all her speaking engagements.
