The people we work with

“This is by far the best and most inspirational and relevant training I have ever been a part of. Would highly recommend this training to any workplace – can’t wait to implement my new skills into my role and see my clients flourish.”

LEANNE NELSON, MINISTRY OF SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT, NEW ZEALAND

“Maria was very engaging with the audience, very inspiring. The delivery of knowledge was fantastic. Thanks very much for the day. Look forward to more of the sessions.”

MICHAEL CRANIP, LINFOX

“Maria Smith’s insights and skills were hugely beneficial to me and to our founding team in the early development of our cutting-edge company. Her extensive experience working with senior executives helped us to harness our bold ambitions and build a very productive work culture and corporate ethos. Maria is a force of nature–with a broad repertoire of personal and professional skills – from which any organisation can benefit.”

JERILYN ASHER, CO-FOUNDER AND EVP, JIBO, INC.

“We have been thrilled with the professionalism the team from Bounce have displayed during the facilitation of all sessions. Bounce has been able to engage with our staff quickly and build rapport to the point where Bounce feel part of our team. Bounce facilitators always make a point of acknowledging all staff when they visit our business and have also been able to build very effective relationships with our entire leadership team.”

JASON BUTCHER, GENERAL MANAGER, ARTHUR REED PHOTOS, INC.

“There were moments that i felt like standing up clapping with joy. The instructor was just awesome and highly, highly knowledgeable that kept us connected throughout.”

What's included in a Bounce Program License?

When you license the Bounce Program for your organisation you get access to our incredible suite of training resources and tools. 

Face-to-Face Program

The Bounce Program can be implemented as a face-to-face training program delivered by a certified Bounce Trainer. How each Program is delivered can be entirely flexible, based on the needs of the clients, the trainers and the organisation as a whole. Adaptable, empowering and super effective, the Program combines group classes and one-on-one mentoring sessions with the Trainer, so your clients can get the deep-level support they need to navigate their way forward. The Program is typically delivered over 14 days.

The Bounce Program Online

Your clients have exclusive access to The Bounce Program Online, a digital version of the face-to-face Program. It features all of the essential soft skills training, tools and techniques used in the live program, coupled with the ease and convenience of completing it wherever and whenever it suits the client best. The platform is accessible via any device - a computer, tablet or phone (it even has its own App). It draws on the principles of human-centred design, creating a unique, intuitive user experience that accelerates people to take action. Human-level insights accompanied with real-time reports are delivered through the platform’s powerful and seamless interface. Each client report is descriptive and dynamic, giving you deep visibility into your clients needs. Bounce Online can be delivered as a structured or self-paced program and is ideal to use as an early intervention and engagement strategy. Your trainers can also provide coaching support to you clients as they progress through the online Program.

Train Your Trainers

Our exclusive advantage is our Train-the-Trainer model which is an integral part of all our license agreements. We have developed and perfected our model to be cost-effective, scalable and outcomes-focused with a strong commitment on ongoing trainer support and development. It’s not a set-and-forget system; once your trainers become Bounce Trainers, they become part of our community.

Did we mention outcomes?

Since 2006, Bounce has been developing and delivering customised training solutions that meet the specific needs of people looking for employment. Our programs work on shifting negative beliefs and barriers to employment and place the focus on the person, not the content. No more cookie-cutter courses that fall short of the mark. With Bounce, every experience is tailored and unique.

Here's what they said...

Program participants and coaches alike, love the Bounce Program. It's changing lives and helping people find their way every day! 

Before the program I was being negative about everything related to employment. I found the job searches were hard because of my low confidence, motivation and I wasn’t energised. I would see people going to work and I WISH I had a job to go to like everyone.

The Bounce Program Online is very easy to use, easy to follow and learn. I was surprised at how effective and informative it was. It helped me to assess and understand my abilities in the career world, and I've developed more confidence, new skills and technical abilities. I'm ready to find my career now.

Jenny, Program Participant

 I was surprised at how much I didn't know about things like networking and rapport, and I've realised that I can't achieve my goals without people to help me. I have always been a person who stuck to myself and not needed anyone. I need to build a network of people to get where I really want to be and get experience from them. I have always wanted to join the military, but I have not been that serious about joining until now. Not only that, I need to get out there more into the community to find work. I've gained more confidence and knowledge. I really enjoyed this Program.

Dakota, Program Participant

I put my clients into the Bounce Program because some lack confidence and others have a lack of clarity with regards to their career goals / direction. By participating in Bounce they gain incredible insight into their strengths and capabilities. 

The Program reports are really impressive. They provide me with information about my clients behaviours and habits as well as insight into their work values, employment goals, communication styles and transferable skills.  It would have taken quite a number of sessions to gain this level of insight into my clients, and I don’t believe it would have been to this depth. My clients are more confident which is leading to better engagement.

Chantal, Job Coach MAX Solutions

The client completion reports are impressive and highly beneficial as they indicate a participants engagement skills and the barriers or challenges that need to be focused on. The sections of the report that really stand out include participants being able to identify their qualities and skills and for them to uncover the values and traits that are holding them back. It would take at least three sessions to gather just some of this information in normal face-to-face appointments.
