Dr. Tererai Trent

Keynote Speaker: Internationally Recognized Voices for Quality Education and Women’s Empowerment; Oprah Winfrey's "All-Time Favorite Guest"

Dr. Tererai Trent Biography

One of today’s most internationally recognized voices for quality education and women’s empowerment, Dr. Tererai Trent is a symbol of hope for children around the world. Growing up in a cattle-herding family in rural Zimbabwe, Trent always dreamed of getting an education, but limited by traditional Zimbabwean culture, she was married with three children by the time she was eighteen. Undeterred by traditional roles and cultural norms, Trent determinedly taught herself to read and write from her brother’s schoolbooks. From those humble beginnings, Dr. Trent has become a world-renowned scholar, humanitarian, motivational speaker, educator, mentor, and inspiration, leading the global charge in the fight for quality education for all children.

So what makes Dr. Trent Oprah Winfrey’s “all time favorite guest?” While still a young mother without a high school diploma, Trent decided to take control of her destiny. She wrote down her dreams of going to America for higher education, sealed them in a tin can and buried them under a rock, thereby redesigning the blueprint for her life. Dr. Trent’s steadfast determination, hard work and belief in her dreams would eventually earn her multiple degrees. Today, Dr. Trent is a senior consultant with more than 18 years of international experience in program and policy evaluation, and has worked on five continents for major humanitarian organizations. With a desire to give back to her community and the firm belief that education is the pathway out of poverty, Dr. Trent founded Tinogona Foundation, a non-profit organization that works to build, repair and renovate schools in rural Zimbabwe. Through strategic partnerships with Oprah Winfrey and Save the Children, Tinogona is helping build nine schools, improving the lives for nearly 4,000 children.

Using her prominent global platform in conjunction with world leaders and international audiences, Dr. Trent tirelessly speaks on behalf of children without an access to education. On top of sharing her remarkable story, Trent appeals to international businesses to invest in equal access to education. She empowers women to be leaders in their communities, imparting the lessons she learned along her incredible journey. A warm and engaging speaker, Dr. Tererai Trent lights up audiences with her enduring spirit and strength, and leaves everyone motivated to fight not only for their own dreams, but also for the dreams of others.

Dr. Tererai Trent Reviews

  • I can report that Dr. Trent was very well-received and she had a very strong message for our audience particularly the importance of women building communities and being bold and courageous.
    Idaho Women's Charitable Foundation - Oct 16 2014

  • Tererai Trent was absolutely amazing last night! She had our audience hanging on her every word. You literally could have heard a pin drop. I think she received two standing ovations and at least another four spontaneous outbursts of applause. Women laughed, cried, and thoroughly enjoyed the privilege of hearing her words. Many attendees came up afterwards to say she was “the best they’ve ever heard” – no small praise considering the caliber of speakers that have been featured over the past 15 years. Please pass along our gratitude to Tererai for sharing her stories, her courage, and her insight. She’s delightful.
    Women’s Connection - Nov 20 2013

  • Our event was fabulous and we are delighted to have featured Dr. Trent as our keynote speaker. Our community is still raving about her remarks and how touched they were by her connection to what we do at the Nevada Women's Fund to support women and families.
    Nevada Women’s Fund - Nov 20 2013

  • I must tell you what an amazing experience we had with Dr. Trent. We have never had such a full house and such a remarkable speaker! She is so cordial and accommodating, and that alone was wonderful. But her presentation today topped anyone I have ever heard, which seemed to be the sentiment of many who attended (they told me!). The challenge for us now is to find a speaker for next year who may (attempt) to equal Dr. Trent—I have never had such a glorious experience in my life. Thank you for all your work and support to make this happen. We are absolutely thrilled with our ability to share such a remarkable woman with the community.
    Chrysalis Foundation - Nov 20 2013

  • Dr. Trent’s passionate message about the power of education resonated with the graduate students during a critical time in their studies. Her moving story of hope and determination inspired our students to think differently, ask questions, and explore how they can effect positive social change within their professions, communities, and, quite possibly, the world. Dr. Trent is an eloquent speaker whose extraordinary story inspires audiences to believe they have the power to make a difference.
