Our People

Jon Holsclaw


"Hi, my name’s Jon. I’m an American, from California, who’s been living in Beijing for the past 12 years with my wife and four children. When I’m not working, I love riding my mountain bike, playing guitar, and watching movies! I’m also keenly interested in world politics/international relations, so if any of you can think of nothing more exciting than an in depth discussion on the way countries relate to one another (anyone out there?!), let’s talk!"

John Yeo

"Hi, I’m John and I'm from Sydney (though I look like the other 1.3 billion people here!). I’m married and have 2 kids and I've lived in Beijing for almost 8 years. I have over 12 years experience in the accounting profession and the financial services sector both in Australia and China, and am now loving working here with the LC Training Center. I love watching and playing all sorts of sports, and have an accent for every occasion."

Bec Yeo

"Hi, I’m Bec, from Sydney, Australia. I’m married to John and we have 2 kids who are just as extroverted as me. I’ve lived in Beijing for almost 8 years now, and absolutely love it. I trained as a chemical engineer but have done all sorts of things during my career including teaching, ladder logic and web design. I love to fill up my time with all kinds of things: baking, reading, hanging out with friends, photography, dreaming up big ideas, and researching anything and everything."

Evelyn Tan

"Hi, I’m Evelyn, from Sydney, Australia. I was born in Australia to Chinese and Malaysian immigrants. I studied Business / Law (majoring in Accounting) at the University of Technology Sydney, then worked as a Lawyer in Sydney. Over the last few years I have lived and worked in several different cities – Sydney, Xi’an, and Singapore - with my husband and two children. I love good coffee, sunshine and reading. "
