"From the moment I started working in New York, I was in Trudi's hands. I feel so lucky she was the one to be involved in every step of my career since then. Her decisions were motivated by her years of experience and what was the best for me. We were more than a model and an agent as we became (and still are) very good friends. I was so comfortable to ask her ANYTHING! And to talk about everything. She made me feel important and protected; Trudi would bring the wall down for me! And we had so much fun and we laughed and laughed. I still have Trudi as my friend and I miss her so much as my agent. I am jealous of the girls that have the opportunity to work with her now."

"Trudi is one of the most honest agents a model could ask for, she will literally tell you the truth about anything but will always push for her girls. Honored to be one of the models she has worked with. Love her!"

"Trudi has showed up at various times throughout my career and gently guided me in the right direction. I wouldn't have had the successful career I did if it wasn't in part for her support and guidance. She was always honest and transparent with me."

"What’s so special about Trudi is that her years of incredibly deep industry knowledge, experience and connections are balanced with true passion, a kind heart and a wonderful sense of humor. While she was a vital force in my career as a model, what I always appreciated most was how she saw me as more than just a model. She always treated me as an individual, woman, and growing businesswoman and it’s a rare blessing to have her on your team in an often challenging industry."

"If you want to "make it" in an industry famous for its short careers, you'll need a manager with a clear strategy, and the knowledge and connections to execute it.
Trudi, with her extensive fashion credentials, is exactly that kind of manager, and she brings a level of dedication and hard work that are truly admirable. She also has an insatiable curiosity and is always up to date with everything current. I am proud to have worked with her in the past, and am looking forward to cooperating with her in this new chapter!"
— Nuno Campio, Model Manager at One Model Management
"Miss Trudi Tap "Scout" and with that you get truth, honesty and how to do it? Where to go? What to do? And if you have what it takes to be a top model, "Trudi Tapscott" is the one with the answers. She has worked for some of the leading modeling agencies in the world, not to mention (well we should mention) one of the top fashion magazines, American Vogue, as the model bookings editor and has launched many careers in the right direction with the right information. So girls, don't take it personal but watch, read, listen and learn, as modeling is not for everyone—but Trudi Tapscott is, if you want to be guided in the right direction."

“When it comes to global fashion model management there are tons of people that talk a good game, however, frankly they don’t have the resources, connections or follow through. Trudi Tapscott not only makes it happen – she does so with professionalism and integrity. She’s one of the few agents that I know truly have the model’s best interest in mind. Her diverse years of industry experience are undeniable.”
