    Episode Five - Michael Coutts-Trotter

    Episode Five - Michael Coutts-Trotter

    There’s no doubt a lot of us are feeling a bit lost or struggling at the moment.

    Well you’re not alone. In Bounce Back, Andrew talks to prominent Australians about major challenges that have been thrown their way, and how they’ve overcome these difficulties on the road to success.

    In this episode Dr. Rochford speaks with the Head of the NSW Communities and Justice Department, Michael Coutts-Trotter. He has an interesting perspective and insight into the prison system, as he served three years for conspiracy to import heroin.

    When he started as Department Secretary, Michael wrote to his 40,000 new employees.
    "There is one thing I want to tell you about myself, you may know it already but if not I want you to hear it from me first. As a teenager I used and supplied drugs. In 1984 I was imprisoned for conspiracy to import heroin, I spent nearly three years in jail and then around eighteen months on parole".

    He told his staff of prison guards and welfare workers how he 'deserved to go to prison' and that his background would be an asset rather than a liability as he took over the state's courts and jails.

    Episode Four - Nathan Buckley

    Episode Four - Nathan Buckley

    There’s no doubt a lot of us are feeling a bit lost or struggling at the moment.

    Well you’re not alone. In Bounce Back, Andrew talks to prominent Australians about major challenges that have been thrown their way, and how they’ve overcome these difficulties on the road to success.

    This series will feature some of Australia’s most recognised sports men and women, prominent businesspeople and well-known politicians, allowing them to tell their story, in their own words.

    There are few Australians who won’t have heard of our guest Nathan Buckley. 

    Nathan’s footy career is the stuff of dreams. He's been the Collingwood Football Club's senior coach since 2012, before that he played 260 games with the club, establishing one of the best football resumes in the game’s history. He won the Copeland Trophy, Collingwood’s Best and Fairest Medal, six times.

    As captain between 1999 and 2007, he led Collingwood to two AFL Grand Finals despite the pies falling short both times, he personally starred with leading in the disposals in each contest and winning the coveted Best on Ground Norm Smith Medal in 2002.

    He was selected in the All Australian team seven times, he captained the Australian International Rules Football team against Ireland, and in 2003 he won the AFL's highest individual honour, The Brownlow Medal.

    In an, at times, controversial coaching transition Buckley took the Senior Coaching role at Collingwood in 2012. While the football world adored Nathan Buckley the player when he was flying high and the team was winning, when the Pies were regularly losing under Buckley the coach, supporters questioned his value and whether or not being a great player qualified someone for a coaching role at one of the top AFL clubs and... Collingwood supporters weren't shy of letting him know of their thoughts.

    And with most other footy fans - and the media - happy to see Collingwood in turmoil, the pressure mounted. 

    Bounce Back is about promoting well-being and good mental health, by showing that even in the most difficult of times, there are people who you can turn to for support - whether they’re mates, family, colleagues, professionals even your neighbours.

    It’s about how to look after yourself when things are tough, believing in yourself and knowing you can come through it even stronger.

    This series will feature some of Australia’s most recognised sports men and women, prominent businesspeople and well-known politicians, allowing them to tell their story, in their own words.

    In this episode Andrew speaks with Anna Meares, regarded as the greatest ever female track cyclist. Anna is the only Australian to have won individual medals at four consecutive Olympics and at Rio in 2016 was Australia's flag bearer.

    But back in 2008, Anna almost lost her career and her life when she broke her neck during a track accident with just 2mm being the difference between life and death. Despite this just ten days after her accident Anna got back onto a stationary bike and pedal for a minute and later that day pedaled for five minutes. Seven months later she went on to compete at the Beijing Olympics.

    Anna provides us with a detailed and honest insight into both her athletic career and personal life and talks us through the ways she dealt with the darker moments that she has confronted.

Jono Haylen ,

Great Conversation

Thank you! Love the idea of what is being achieved here. I highly recommend it. An amazing first guest who was thoughtful, vulnerable and honest.

However, did we really need to hear from the Prime Minister? I felt his presence to be extremely distasteful. I fear many will give up on the episode before it even begins through no fault of the host. I would hate a good production to suffer because our PM wants his fingerprints on it.
