Bounce has taken that next big step and headed into new territory! On the 12th of June, Maria was invited to run a series of workshops for Employment Consultants in Auckland and Hawkes Bay, New Zealand, focusing on skills to help engage disengaged youth.
“One of the best sessions I’ve been to in a long while. Maria was an amazing facilitator” – Christine Manson, Attendee
“Loved it. It was awesome. I really enjoyed the body language stuff and about VAK. I think I could get better at these and use these in my work.” – Rosie Whiaitiri, Attendee
This is an incredible step for Bounce and we couldn’t be more excited!
On the back of her New Zealand trip, Maria has just returned from America, having attended the 3 day Geographic Solutions, Workforce Technology Conference in Monterey, California. Maria was invited speak and discuss Engaging the Disengaged through Emotional Intelligence and Online Strategies. Tech and Marketing nerd, Nettie, was also lucky enough to be invited along for her first trip out of the country, which she was pretty happy about! Maria’s talk had a great response from everyone and Bounce has been invited back for next year’s conference in Florida.

I gained some very useful examples of how to do things on a daily basis in the workplace.” – Jayne Parkinson, Attendee

Trainer of the Month
This month we want to introduce to you one of our newer trainers here at Bounce. Adored by sites, job seekers and trainers alike, Josh Peterson is making waves everywhere he goes! While having extensive experience in training, assessment and people management, Josh can also play 10 different types of instruments (10!?), delve into the inner workings of the mind with a love of psychology and raise 3 kids all at the same time… he can’t solve a Rubix Cube though, not even with instructions. That doesn’t stop him trying because he doesn’t shy away from a challenge! Thanks for your dedication, Josh!
Tip of the Month
“As a leader or business owner, you can’t do everything. Play to your strengths and delegate tasks. Your team is there for a reason, utilise them”
