Bunch is a communications and engagement group that helps businesses to connect, inform and inspire people in ways that bring strategy to life.
We do this because we know that highly engaged employees are happier, more productive, provide outstanding customer service, positively influence other employees and have a sense of ownership at work.
That’s why our ambition reaches further than just crafting messages and experiences. We strive to inspire the people who matter most by engaging hearts and minds, because if people don’t feel it, they’ll never believe it. And if they don’t believe it, they’ll never do it!
WHAT WE BELIEVE
At Bunch, we think that every organisation, regardless of industry, is in the people business.
Our experience has taught us that the quality of communication within an organisation is the single most important contributor to managing resistance and gaining buy-in to strategic business objectives.
Whether it’s during change, transformation or in a business as usual environment, we believe in making complex messages simple, and simple messages exciting.
We’re here to make sure that engagement with your people is compelling and two-way, because we believe that every employee deserves the opportunity to feel connected at work.
WHAT WE DO
We help to organise strategic thinking and align individual programs of work using an integrated approach to communications and engagement.
We explore and diagnose unique communications challenges and opportunities, providing recommendations and explaining how they can be implemented.
We create content plans, clear and compelling copy and energising videos that can be used to embed change, improve performance and integrate messages throughout organisations.
We plan, produce and execute events, brand experiences, conferences, expos and reward and recognition programs for employees and customers, delivering in full, on time, every time.
We build highly effective and measurable creative campaigns that are brought to life through industry-leading graphic and environment design.
We help to attract great talent by developing a compelling organisational narrative around why employees should choose your business as their preferred place to work.
We deconstruct the employee journey, placing importance on how vision, values and behavioural programs can impact the ability to engage people.
We utilise a range of digital platforms to ensure messages reach desired audiences when and where they need them.
We invest in ensuring that leaders are provided with the skills and tools to contribute to improved employee engagement every day, through facilitated communications workshops and training.
Bunch partners with some of Australia’s most iconic and respected organisations across a range of industries to inform, unite, inspire and delight those who matter most.
We’d love to show off everything we do, but the strategic nature of many of our projects means we can’t put them all on our website. However, we’d love to take you through some of our stories in person. You can get in touch with us here.
We’ve been told by our clients that the breadth and variety of our experience, paired with our ability to deliver on time and within budget, is what makes us great to work with. And we’re proud of that.
These are just some of the organisations and brands that we have been privileged to partner with over the last 20 years.
To be the best, you need a leader who inspires you to achieve greatness. Not only does Chris personally mentor and challenge the Bunch team to perform acrobatic feats of magic when it comes to engagement, he is also the consummate people person. When you meet him, you’ll immediately fall under his spell – he will know what your business needs before you do. Chris has 20+ years’ experience kicking butt in diverse organisations both here and overseas, and he loves rocking the boat and empowering others to step up. He’ll transform the way you think and help you jump through every hoop imaginable.
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, MYOB, AMP, BP, CUB and Telstra, his philosophy has always been to focus on business strategy and solve communication problems by bringing strategy to life in the most effective ways.
Co-founder and patriarch of the Bunch family, Matt ensures that Bunch, its offer, its people and its vision are as strong and engaging as possible. He’s also our financial controller. Over the years, Matt has been integral to assembling a passionate, experienced and ambitious team who not only engage people effectively, but are engaging people themselves.
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 and 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.

Originally an advertising copywriter, Paul escaped to the world of brand experience over 20 years ago. Since then, he has helped some of the world’s best-known brands find unexpected ways to communicate, connect and engage with audiences of every size and type. An avid reader and wannabe wine-buff, he believes in the power of simplicity and curiosity, that the future is a journey built on trust and, reflecting his African roots, in the concept of Ubuntu (a Zulu word that literally translates to “I am; because of you”) – a universal interconnectedness that binds us all together.
