I found Josie to be that special person
I was fortunate to meet and be personally coached by Josie Thomson from Brisbane when I first arrived in Australia from New Zealand over a decade ago. At that time I was at the "cross roads " in my life and needed someone to be able to talk to and share my innermost thoughts with, and I found Josie to be that special person. Because of the value she added to my life at that time, I have always had a keen interest in Coaching, and decided in 2015 to throw caution to the wind and set up my own business.
Understanding how the brain works
My biggest take aways are understanding how the brain works, no 2 brains are the same and the two mindsets. These components alone would be a minimum to provide to my team.
JOSIE IS ONE OF THE MOST ENGAGING AND INTERESTING SPEAKERS THAT I HAVE HAD THE PRIVLEDGE TO LISTEN TO
Josie Thomson was recently engaged by Queensland University of Technology (QUT) to speak at a special alumni function hosted by the Science and Engineering faculty. The topic of her talk was “Brain science for leaders” and from the outset she had the audience interested and engaged.
It is quite clear when you hear Josie speak why she has is a multi-award winning business coach and presenter. She is without doubt one of the most engaging and interesting speakers that I have had the privilege to listen to. When Josie speaks people want to listen. Everyone comes away a little wiser and with an appreciation of how powerful the field of brain science is. Josie’s presentation was insightful and it became apparent that with a greater understanding of how the brain works that we can all be better leaders, colleagues and family members.
I would strongly recommend Josie Thomson as a guest speaker and presenter for any corporate event. She is truly “like no other”.
