About Josie Thomson

Josie Thomson is a multi-award winning coach, speaker, trainer, business owner, author and single mother of two.

Josie knows what it’s like to face the odds as a two-time cancer survivor and has proven that odds can be beaten. She speaks from first hand experience about bouncing forward with a ‘post-traumatic growth disorder’ and about how to reframe adversity into opportunities for triumph and success.

She is living proof that winning and succeeding in life is a mindset, and she teaches others how to embrace change due to their encounters with life challenges, sometimes in radically positive ways.

She genuinely cares about the people in her circle

Josie is a brilliant coach and mentor. She understands workplace (and home-place!) psychology better than anyone I've met and her clear, rational advice is always practical. I always feel better armed for the next challenge after a conversation with Josie, and she genuinely cares about the people in her circle.
