We are Bounce Australia!

We take the traditional training format and turn it on its head, making fresh, experiential programs that are 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 LifeSkills like communication, emotional intelligence, rapport and heaps more, to help people from all over find their way.

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