What people say about Belinda Thomas Inc
This stuff blows me away
I love what I do, and I am continually humbled and inspired by - and learning from - the people I work with.
You guys rock!
Belinda has become somewhat of a mentor to me – aiding my development as a leader, as well as a coach and friend through personal challenges.
Belinda bridges the gap between novel development in leadership and traditional values. She brings an infectious enthusiasm to coaching and collaboration and has a unique ability to inspire underlying leadership values. Her uncompromising challenges to traditional thought are both confronting and thought provoking.
Belinda empowered me to create change around myself. I would recommend Belinda’s coaching and thought leadership to anyone wanting to further their progression as a leader.
Joseph Chaloner Warman, Operations Manager Environmental Assets, Watercare
We are really fortunate to have Belinda here providing great insight and support. Trust me when I say – she knows her $#!t.
Not afraid to call a spade a spade and with an impressive history supporting a broad range of professionals, including some very successful senior executives – there’s not much Belinda can’t help with.
Julie McMurray, Head of Human Resources & People, DUAL Asia Pacific
Belinda supported me through a really big professional transition, she challenged me, pushed me and improved me. Its not just that she did these things, it how she did them.
Belinda takes time to make a human connection so that when she challenges you it can be both uncomfortable and safe at the same time. Loved every minute of it.
Sam Parker, GM Digital, PGL Corporation
Belinda Thomas has become an integral part of my working life.
Together we explore possibilities and find new solutions. Belinda’s experience in emotional intelligence and business is paired with undefined skill-sets that mean she is always able to meet my needs and challenge my thinking. I appreciate the diversity of her knowledge, and that she applies it practically, in any situation.
I am happy to recommend her.
Scott Leith, Special Council, Discover Defend
I've just completed a 3 month Emotional Intelligence coaching program and was fortunate enough to have Belinda Thomas as my personal coach through the program. The coaching program was extremely interesting to me as the subject matter relating to the sales business I operate was relevant, concise and applicable to my small but growing real estate business.
Belinda excelled in the ability to listen to my issues and to skilfully prompt me to find the solutions to the blockages I had in my own thinking and helped me to find the answers by myself.
It was truly a liberating experience for me as I've never worked with a professional coach before and had some reservations as to how the coaching could actually help me and grow my business. I was amazed at how Belinda was able to guide me to my own solutions and how the brainstorming sessions during each call revealed several insights that I had never considered before.
Damon Lewis, Sales and Marketing Consultant, Ray White, Brisbane
Today was a really tough session - but one that I really appreciated.
Your wonderful insightful questioning and challenging of me really makes me work hard. I’m excited about the actions I’ve planned, and looking forward to reporting back!!
Thank you for helping me on this journey, and for helping me see the world in new ways.
Peter Sellars, Continuous Delivery/DevOps Consultant, Catosplace
I would recommend Belinda because, in my experience, she has the ability to meet the client where they are at.
She has vast personal experience that aligned with my coaching needs, which I found worked much better for me than if she was speaking theoretically.
On a scale of 1–10, I rate the overall experience in working with Belinda as an 11.
Brigette Walkin, Business Owner, Writing Services - Copy Editing & Proofreading
As part of my Senior Leadership development I worked with Belinda to provide advice, counsel and challenge on my leadership and operating style. I found the sessions immensely valuable.
Belinda has a tremendous ability to quickly understand an organisational environment and context, and to therefore ensure our sessions and time together are targeted and relevant. I always felt like Belinda was responding to what I needed, tailoring the sessions and contextualising the advice.
She is not only supportive, wise and very insightful but is not afraid to hold me accountable. I would highly recommend working with her, and I am looking forward to working with her again.
Matthew Scrafton, Head of Programme Portfolio Management, LIC
I found in Belinda a coach who works with me in a way that suits my personality, goals, work environment and career aspirations.
Belinda is open and honest in her approach. She uses a great balance of drawing responses directly, and generous examples from her experience, which I find invaluable as I want to learn from others not just from myself.
I have loved working with Belinda over the last 6 months. We’ve worked on specific issues and general pieces all with great success. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Paula Harris, Regional Manager New Zealand, DUAL New Zealand
Belinda Thomas in an outstanding professional who is as caring, capable, and authentic as they come. She has delivered coaching and training to my staff and clients, always with rave reviews and requests for repeat business.
She is inspirational - strong, clear, articulate, curious, and with the highest professional ethics. She has a thirst for learning and knowledge and commits herself to ongoing up-skilling at a level I've found uncommon in most professions.
I've always been able to rely on her to provide services when needed, to entrust her with confidential details of my business and other areas of my life, and she never ceases to amaze me with her creative approaches to supporting us all to achieving our outcomes.
Shelly Davies, Managing Director at Shelly Davies Writing and Training
Belinda has coached me in business and sport.
She’s given me the support and inspiration to unlock my potential, and the confidence to keep challenging myself to go further. Her approach is refreshing, intuitive and fun. She’s worked me hard and always celebrated my wins.
What makes her special is her willingness to go beyond our sessions, and really invest in my success. My communication and leadership development have had a huge positive impact on our business.
And thanks to the work we’re doing with flow, resilience and mental agility she was also a crucial part of my team in the lead up to the 2018 World Champs.

This was a great course. It was also an excellent refresher for those more experienced administrators. The course provided an excellent opportunity for sharing experiences and networking.
The outline for the day was not set in stone and was partially influenced by the needs of the attendees. This provided a great learning environment. Belinda is a down to earth, vibrant businesswoman.
Her friendliness and open style puts those not so confident at ease and invites participation. Great presentation skills and each and every one of us I am sure took something away. Thank you for a great day!
