“Libby Stephens is among the foremost voices speaking for and to TCKs today. I learned much under her teaching in Thailand and China; as an international school principal I asked her to address parents, students and staff. Libby is both a compassionate advocate and a talented speaker and counselor. Her insights are astute and timely and she is a true collaborator with those who care about TCKs. My oldest daughter was helped immensely in her pre-transition from China to college in the US; my son is now anticipating his turn. Any international community securing Libby Stephens to address TCK issues will be fortunate indeed!”

“Libby’s dynamic abilities as a speaker and consultant shine with great impact. Her presence is passionate and thoughtful, consistently revealing a deep awareness of what it is to navigate the realities of cross-cultural adjustment. A tireless advocate for transitioning individuals, families, and the systems involved, Libby’s services are worth every Dollar, Yuan, or Euro.”

“Libby Stephens is an internationally recognized spokesperson for Third Culture Kids and families experiencing transition. She is a passionate communicator that is on the cutting edge of the constantly evolving world of Third Culture Kids. I would highly recommend her as a speaker or consultant in whatever setting that calls for consulting with or speaking to the principles and dynamics surrounding transition and Third Culture Kids.”

“Libby Stephens is the person I recommend to anyone who is seeking understanding on the topic of transition, cross-cultural issues, and raising a family overseas. Libby is a gifted professional whose passion is contagious. She is a powerhouse of enthusiasm, energy, passion and commitment. She is highly articulate, personable, and authentic.
Having worked with Libby for over 10 years, it is easy to speak of her skills, passion, and talent while working with individuals, families, and groups of all sizes. Her ability to pull the audience in – and hold their attention – is astounding. She is able to bring teens (ages 13 – 19) who have grown up in many different countries into a lively discussion, motivating them to participate in the conversations, and then leave them still talking among themselves about “who” they are.
Her passion about Third Culture Kids (TCKs) and their families is immeasurable. . . and she conveys this from deep within herself, allowing yourself to sink into your seat with total confidence that you will leave her seminar satiated – yet wanting to learn more.”
