“Inspirational” is the first word that comes to mind when I think of Lyn Traill and the talk she gave which I was lucky enough to attend recently. That word is closely followed by “honest, caring and funny”.
Having dealt with just about every difficulty that life could throw at her, Lyn is generous and brave enough to share her experiences and how she became the wonderfully positive role model she is to us all. She left us with a feeling of enthusiasm for life and the wish to make the most of each day ahead. Not many people have this gift but certainly – Lyn does!

This is the most amazing story. I can feel your pain as a child. I was so inspired listening to this interview that I went and shared it with a friend. We often discuss child abuse and emotions we’ve dealt with during our childhood. This is one of my ‘must have’ books. Thank you for sharing your life.- ABC Listener
“Lyn speaks with poise, genuine sincerity, sensitivity and humour. Her Sizzling at Seventy talk articulated her life journey from victim to victorious. She willingly opened up her heart to her audience and used her experiences to resonate with and help others. She oozes self-confidence and is a beacon of shining light. Her talk was thought provoking and had the audience completely engaged.”

I just want to let you know how much I enjoyed your address to the North Lakes Women’s Group. You truly are an inspiration, a delightful person and a riveting speaker. I can’t believe how quickly the time went and I wish we could have kept you there for a few more hours. Your book is now in my library and if ever I start feeling sorry for myself or questioning my life in any way, I shall turn to it for inspiration.
Thank you Lyn. I hope that I have the privilege of hearing you again and I look forward to the release (in the next decade of course) of “Ecstatic at Eighty”!
