" What I like about Justin is that he gets a feel for the group and then adjusts his presentation to meet their needs. He is engaging from the very first sentence. His topics and responses are very practical and down to earth. He has a very realistic view of families and people immediately sense his genuineness. "

" The way in which Dr Coulson supported our event was inspirational. I am certain that his humorous and practical insights have had a positive impact on all of the families that were present. What our teachers present shared with me afterwards was the practical implications for the strategies he suggested for families and how they would be applied in the school setting. Truly a gifted, kind and warm human being who is a breath of fresh air, mainly because of his unique ability to connect with every parent and every child. "
Kimberley Park State School, Brisbane
" On behalf of PESA and our board of directors, I wanted to say a huge heartfelt thank you to Dr Justin for his wonderful and inspiring keynote. Dr Justin's contribution was an invaluable part of making the #PESA2022 conference a success and we are so grateful that he agreed to be a part of our rich and diverse program! I know so many delegates got so much out of his presentation, particularly those educators who were experiencing the symptoms of ''running on empty'' (as Justin so perfectly put it). Staff burnout is a hot topic at the moment and Dr Justin's keynote provided such wonderfully useful and tangible information that I know will go a long way in helping not only individual educators address this challenge but also school leaders as well. We look forward to working with Dr Justin on future PESA conferences and events. "

" We found the two sessions with Justin excellent. His knowledge, experience and expertise are in perfect balance with his capacity to warmly connect with the audience. His entertaining approach uses both latest research and relatable stories. The presentations offered our staff an ideal circumstance where existing understandings were affirmed, and simultaneously challenged or reframed our thinking. We look forward to working with him again. "

Justin's presentations really resonated with our swim community. We could all relate and appreciate the motivation continuum that our swimmers need to reach - the intrinsic state - to love what they do for optimum results. I also enjoyed how Justin related his journey in Swimming of which I was thankfully part of and felt proud of what he has achieved both professionally and personally.
