We are a communications group that partners with businesses, brands and their people to help bring strategy to life.
We use unexpected thinking to craft and deliver stories, ideas and experiences designed to shift the way they think, feel and behave.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe that every single business (no matter the industry) is first and foremost in the people business and ENGAGING those PEOPLE in interesting, effective, memorable and rewarding ways is essential to achieving success.
We believe that businesses require a cohesive approach to engaging all the people that impact it. Rather than alignment (business – like life – is rarely neat, ordered and linear), we strive for something more agile, more flexible and more real. CONNECTEDNESS between a strategic plan and people; between the internal and the external; between stories that are told and touchpoints big and small.
We believe the key to truly engaging people is finding ways to connect the HEAD AND HEART. Because we know that if you don’t feel it, you’ll never believe it. And if you don’t believe it, you’ll never do it.
Why the hat?
Created in 1849 as an alternative to the fragile top hat, the iconic Bowler is one of the most successful hats ever designed.
From the Wild West to the streets of London to the mountains of Bolivia, it was soon adopted by every strata of society. Butlers, bankers, outlaws, gamekeepers, shopkeepers, coppers, dockers and Hollywood legends… they all wore the hat with pride.
At Bunch, we celebrate the Bowler and all it represents – outstanding craftsmanship, proven robustness, distinctive style and a timeless ability to connect people in a shared story.
WHAT WE DO
We use the power of engaging communication to help some of Australia’s most respected businesses inform, unite, connect, inspire, motivate, reward and delight those who work for, partner with and buy from them.
We deliver tailored solutions across a number of areas including:
People & Culture programs
Customer & Trade Marketing
Conferences & Expos
Film & Content creation
Graphic & Environment Design
We’d love to show off everything we do but the strategic nature of many of our projects means we can’t put all of them on our website.
However, we’d be delighted to take you through some of the stories face to face.
Across sectors. Across categories. Across the globe.
Here are just some of the brands and businesses
we’ve been privileged enough to partner with over the years
Matt is head honcho here at Bunch. Co-founder and patriarch of the Bunch family, he ensures that Bunch, its offer, its people and its vision are as strong and engaging as possible. He has assembled a passionate, experienced and ambitious team who not only engage people effectively but are engaging people themselves who consistently help our clients matter more to the people who matter most. Oh and he loves football, enough said.
Head of Production
Row is the key that unlocks Bunch’s potential. She has her finger on the pulse of what clients need to achieve and exactly how to do it. She’s tenacious, clever, curious and knows just how to pull everyone and everything together when it counts. Mostly this is because she’s been around the traps with a load of experience in sponsorship, PR, media liaison, marketing, fundraising and live events for businesses as varied as Ford, Mars, Telstra, L’Oreal, Wesfarmers and CanTeen Australia. She doesn’t yet know how to save the world but she’s working on it.
Client Strategy Director
Chris is our expert ‘people person’. Engaging people… empowering people… transforming the way people work and communicate. He’s a gun at getting the best out of anyone and everyone. He uses this unique super power to bring our client’s strategy to life. How? Well, he has 20 years experience in leading International Companies and challenging the status quo to improve business results and performance. Chris is a Transformational Leader with a multitude of insights to tap into and a powerful vision for the Bunch team. Oh and he loves sport…all sports….lots of sport.
Luke is co-founder of Bunch and our resident blue-sky thinker. He’s helped shape the evolution of Bunch through insight, creativity, passion and first-class professionalism, and will stop at nothing to help our clients through their own evolutions.
With 20 years experience working with highly respected brands like Cadbury, ANZ, Schweppes, AMP, BP, CUB and Telstra, his philosophy has always been to focus on their business strategy and solve their communication problems by bringing strategy to life in the most effective and unexpected ways.
He’s also our favourite guy to have a chat with. Luke knows everyone, is never short of a story, and he will always remember your mother’s cousin’s wife’s name, which is why we affectionately call him “have-a-chat Hannebery.”
Stephanie has been telling stories to anyone who would listen since she was a small child and yet it was the architecture and design world that first sparked her passion. 20 years later, it’s the combination of clever narrative, design excellence, sense of place and relevance that she calls on to create unexpected solutions.
With experience in the FMCG, retail, IT, automotive, health, aerospace and telecommunications industries, Stephanie is well versed in… well … almost anything and yet she still wants more…

By Rowena Horne Recently we had one of our monthly Lunch and Learn sessions and this one was dedicated to getting to know ourselves better…focussing on what makes each of us tick.
What do you do?
By Zara Karaduman One of the most common forms of small talk when meeting someone new is to ask them, ‘what do you do?’ It’s a question often asked by new friends, acquaintances and the odd hairdresser or barista.
