TCK Live

Join our conversations around the important topics and issues connected to TCK life.

Welcome to TCK Live

Interaction International is proud to host amazing guests as we chat about our favorite topic . . . TCKs! Grab a drink and listen in to the conversation. If you join the webinar, you can participate in live polls and submit questions that will be woven into the discussion or answered directly during the Q&A at the end.

Register in advance to fully participate on our Zoom platform (see below). You can also join by watching our “Facebook Live” stream on the Interaction International Facebook Page.

Each TCK Live is recorded. If you’re on a long international flight (or in a never-ending meeting) and miss it live, we’ve got you covered. Scroll down the page and you will find links to the recordings. You can catch up on our past TCK Live conversations.  We’ve got you!

Never miss a conversation!

Because TCKs don't have a universal time-zone, we record each TCK Live. Preserved in all their original freshness, savor them at your leisure on our commercial-free Vimeo account. You will never have to wonder about what you missed.
