"Tiana is an amazing communicator and inspiring speaker. I am inspired by her passion and appreciative of her knowledge around exploitation and trafficking. Tiana brought a well rounded presentation that provided new ideas and information to a mixed audience, those who work at the prevention stage and those working with victims. As a community victim support worker I am cognizant of the many layers to the issue of exploitation and was very impressed by Tiana's ability to take those layers and make them visible. She provides reliable and concrete direction for front line workers, teachers and community stakeholders and would be a most valuable asset for agencies who are looking to provide updated information, education and training on sexual exploitation.

"The sexual exploitation training we asked Tiana to deliver to our social work participants was exactly what we were looking for and even customized to our needs. Tiana was easy to work with and her professionalism and experience were on point throughout the training. The training focused on sexually exploited children and youth with a comprehensive review of recruitment tactics, current examples of online platforms, a review of a variety of cases. Tiana also provided a detailed review of what makes children and youth vulnerable, the physical and behavioral indicators, and the challenges to exiting. Tiana also reviewed the various legislation under the Criminal Code of Canada and the Child and Family Community Services Act relevant to social work practice. Finally, our participants were left with resources to share in regards to reporting. Tiana was generous with her time and knowledge during the question and answer period. We would definitely ask her to come and share again in the future!"
-Colleen, Associate Director at Indigenous Perspectives Society
"The team found it very informative and they all really enjoyed it. Personally, I really appreciated the balance between stories/ case scenarios as well as using theory and practice such as the Maslow's hierarchy of needs. It really brought the topic to light and I think helped individuals really look at how they can better their practice with youth to help prevent sexual exploitation. Your questions at the end also really helped our team discuss ways our practice can improve and what we are doing well.
Thank you - I will most definitely be recommending you for future presentations!"
