About Robin Pascoe

Robin’s reputation as a funny, engaging and inspirational speaker was earned as a former diplomatic spouse (in postings to Bangkok, Taipei, Beijing and Seoul); raising two third culture kids, and by traveling globally for more than a decade from her home base in Vancouver, Canada. Robin has now spoken in over twenty-five countries, invited by corporate groups from Shanghai to Johannesburg to educate business about the needs of the expatriate family. Robin has become the go-to expert for corporations interested in understanding the needs of expats and their families and making recommendations for family-friendly relocation policies.

Traveling spouses, international school communities, global mobility and Human Resource practitioners, and relocation specialists worldwide applaud her pragmatic but sensitive approach to the joys and challenges of families and global relocation. She is deeply committed to helping families make the most of the sometimes challenging privilege of living, working, and raising a family abroad.

Robin’s profession as a journalist makes her ideally suited to reporting on the trends in expatriate experience. She writes regularly for expatriate newspapers, magazines and web sites and has been interviewed by numerous international publications including The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune, Working Mother Magazine, Utne Reader, CNN, and others.

" I found that I was quietly crying much of the time"
Brice, Thank you so much for sponsoring this class. I found that I was quietly crying much of the time, and I heard tears in other voices too. I didn’t notice the tears sliding down my face until one hit the desk. Wonderful to be with so many people who get it. Thank you to all who made this rich experience possible. You are doing a great service to so many of us around the world.

How does it work?

Each Teleconference is facilitated by a host. The host welcomes each caller and asks their name and where they are from. Sessions are usually one hour long, sometimes discussion-based, and occasionally lecture-based. Just like a live seminar, students may participate as much --or as little -- as they wish.

Is this free?

Yes. You will have the option to listen on the phone or online using a webcast with no long distance charges. Fees apply to International callers which is why the free option to listen and ask questions online is offered. The teleclass is sponsored by the generous support of TCKID members.
