Working smarter, not harder

Bounce is a group of people looking to make positive changes in people’s lives. Since 2006 we’ve been teaching essential Soft Skills like communication, emotional intelligence, rapport and heaps more, to help people from all over find their way.

We take the traditional training format and turn it on its head, making fresh, experiential programs that are smarter, not harder.

We travel all over Australia, New Zealand and the US delivering programs based around Positive Psychology, Social Science, Behavioural Nudging and Emotional Intelligence to job seekers, businesses, companies and government departments.
