Project Co-ordinator
Education Tauranga

“Steve & Jean are an incredibly dynamic duo! Their combined knowledge comes from their personal and professional experience of living and working abroad in cultures vastly different than their own. Their cross-cultural workshops have just the right balance of practical and theoretical and their presentation style is lively and full of good humour. Steve & Jean are hugely relatable as both parents and educators and we are very lucky to have them living here in the Bay of Plenty.”

International Student Manager

Greenpark Primary School

“The Cross-Cultural Transition team of Jean and Steve Morris provided Education Tauranga members with a wealth of knowledge about culture and an understanding of how best to support cross cultural transition into our schools. I now have a repertoire of skills and learning examples to share with my colleagues to improve overseas student experience at Greenpark School. Their delivery was thought provoking, entertaining, practical and meaningful.” 

Recruitment Consultant

HEB Construction Ltd 

This is by far the best investment we have made in our people. We recruited over a dozen families from abroad and it seemed like an overwhelming task at first. Then Jean and her team came along and I cannot express the gratitude of the recruits and the business managers. Their vast knowledge and experience is invaluable and such an asset to the process. I instantly felt comfortable that our new people and their families would be in very safe, capable and kind hands.

They are “ABOVE AND BEYOND” people.



"Steve has been an invaluable cross-cultural and educational resource for Cambodia Trust. His expertise and knowledge has been extremely helpful as we strive to further the education levels of children and teachers throughout Cambodia”.
