A great ‘refresh’ at a time when I really need it

A great ‘refresh’ on neuroscience at a time when I really need it. Looking forward to completing the workbook and attending the next workshop.

Thanks Josie for being so generous with your knowledge and your time.

Christine Symons

Extremely inspirational

Josie is extremely inspirational. She really knows her stuff and clearly lives by her own teachings. I like that she is real about life not being perfect and everyone, including her, having struggles in life.

Touched the minds and hearts

My heartfelt thanks go to you for your wonderful contribution to Happiness & Its Causes 2018. The conference was another great success with 1,500 people attending. Your presentation was a great addition to the program and was well received by our delegates. Thank you so much for all the effort you put into an event that touched the minds and hearts of so many people and provided insights and tools they could take back into their lives.

My mind is way more focused, I am calmer

I would like to thank you for your great mindfulness meditation sessions where I gained an insight into the practice which is now becoming part of my life. I will use your recordings and listen to your calm voice to be able to practice it. My mind is way more focused, I am calmer and seem to be able to let things go a little easier and overall my moods are more balanced. You are such an inspiration!

Gaby Doebeli

Engaging and inspirational and I am already shifting

Great workshop today on the neuroscience of success with Josie Thomson. Thank you, your presentation was engaging and inspirational and I am already shifting my focus to the ‘I want...’ instead of the ‘I don’t want...’. I will also be more interested in mindfulness and its benefits going forward, the brain is amazing but loves being in its comfort zone way too much.

What an inspiration you are

I still draw on the wisdom of your words

In June 2017 I had the pleasure of meeting Josie at a work seminar in Cairns and I purchased some of her books including a set of 4 fridge magnets with inspirational messages on them.

These magnets are proudly displayed on my fridge and along with her books have helped me to achieve my goals over the last 18 months.

I am now in my own home, living my own independent happy life and I still draw on the wisdom of your words.

A lot of good content

Great presenting (I didn’t get bored!). A lot of content – was good but felt a lot to take in short time. Really enjoyed the science.

The QUT School of Management was privileged to have Josie as the keynote speaker at our Gala Showcase. The event was about ‘Connections’ and Josie made a huge impact on the audience with her story of challenge, resilience and openness. Her warmth and authenticity, and willingness to share showed the audience how connections are made and kept. I recommend Josie as a speaker who can help change people’s perspectives and look forward to working with her again.

I have had the most amazing two day workshop with Josie Thomson. My organisation arranged for Josie to present her Neuroscience of Leadership workshop and provided great insight into effective leadership, performance discussion and getting the best and most out of your staff. I highly recommend Josie. Josie is very engaging and her knowledge in this subject is extraordinary. You will NOT regret your investment. Thank you.

If anyone deserves to be called a Master Coach it is Josie Thomson

I have known Josie for some six years and have had nothing but positive experiences with her. She coached me the first time we met and I was very impressed by her insight, her skill and her persistence. She has won several awards for her coaching. She has the very unusual ability to be able to complete a large number of coaching sessions in a day without tiring or fading. On the personal side she is a very good mother of two great children and her people skills are outstanding. She is also extremely bright, quick on the uptake and worldly wise, and I have no doubt that she will be an asset to the program.

Since all the things I want to say about Josie are superlatives, I thought I should add some weakness to show that my view is balanced. The truth is that I can find nothing about her to criticize. If anyone deserves to be called a Master Coach it is Josie Thomson, except she is very feminine. I have known her for many years and she has coached me on a number of occasions very successfully, and I am no push over. She is challenging, tough and persistent in the most gentle and caring way. I have grown much from working with her. Furthermore she really enjoys coaching people and devotes an inordinate amount of her time doing so without getting bored or stale. When coaches really genuinely enjoy coaching, they give of their very best and Josie does just that. I would trust her with my vulnerabilities any day.
