Content really resonates

Josie’s presentation style is kind and compassionate yet forthright which helps her message and content to really resonate.

This truly is an awesome program

Through the program You Are Not Your Brain, Josie was able to demonstrate to staff how to ‘direct’ brain chemistry in order to achieve optimal performance, enhance productivity and create the best environment for innovation and creativity.

This truly is an awesome program underpinned by the neuroscience of how people collaborate with and influence others. It received such a positive response from all levels of staff (front line and executive management) that what was initially delivered as a pilot program soon become the foundation of an established curriculum for all Commercial Insurance staff across Suncorp.

I couldn't recommend it highly enough, it has brought a completely new perspective to how I approach my work and relationships, in and outside of work.

Come away feeling positive and armed with a strategy for life. 

Time with Josie is the best investment in life. I always learn something (many things) new and come away feeling positive and armed with a strategy for life.

I rarely give recommendations however if you genuinely want to learn and develop then Josie will be the catalyst to make it happen!
She is exceptional in her presentation skills and product knowledge and has a wonderful ability to deliver a relevant and thought provoking message.
I have attended a workshop with Josie and also utilised her DVDs and it is a pleasure to find content that is extremely practical, informative and dynamic.
She is a delight to learn from and I highly recommend her Resilience workshop.

Ivan Rusmussen ... Executive Officer, Mater Hospital Bundaberg


Josie was absolutely magnificent at our recent Variety Queensland’s Strategy Conference. Words cannot do justice to just how powerful and engaging her message on Resilience was to our team. It certainly does determine as to who succeeds and fails and more importantly, why! Her practical demonstrations on our thought processes and as to how we can overcome the negative and fear processes were extremely enlightening and more importantly useful.
I have had nothing but positive feedback from the team with comments such as “not only was it our best conference ever but Josie was our best ever speaker!” A huge heartfelt thank you!

Lots of practical and applicable lessons

Josie is fun, inspirational, knowledgeable and free and open with her advice, guidance and tips to help me live my best life. Josie makes a few hours flash by in an instant and I am taking away with me today lots of practical and applicable lessons to help me get what I really want in my life.

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.

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.
