The Story Turn (Australia) has been operating since 2014 and is formally trading as Matchbox Works Pty Ltd. Founded by Donovan John Szypura, Turn immediately started to deliver exceptional results with the innovative Matchbox program. Turn has evolved into a successful ‘outside-the-box’ enterprise with the mission to give people the power to do great work. Turn has secured major projects in Southern Tasmania and delivers programs for diverse groups of all ages, including high school students, youth programs, apprenticeship centres, parenting programs, arts organisations, employment service providers, and vocational training organisations.

Engagement with impact Turn currently offers two innovative training programs, Matchbox and Backswing. Each program offers a set of methods which focus on the existing potential within individuals and communities and encourages both to become active agents in their own development. This way they are enabled to gain secure employment and build resilience in a challenging society. Turn’s work is based on five principles:


The aims, purposes and goals for each program and project are clearly communicated in such a way that participants and their local communities can readily access them.


Turn‘s expertise in program design and experience in delivering against funding requirements helps organisations and community groups to achieve great outcomes and attain KPI’s.


Participants are actively involved in program design and project delivery. Local employers are involved by guiding and linking with participants.


Turn’s relationship with participants, communities and organisations usually develop into long-lasting collaborations. Participants experience a sense of teamwork and build long lasting networks which becomes ‘contagious’ and self-sustaining.


Turn provides skills, tools, practices and techniques that give people the power to do great work in diverse areas of their lives. Our philosophy is to be agile and use challenges as driving energy.

Backswing is about groups of people working together to face a set of challenges, identify their strengths, aim at a sweet-spot and follow through with impact. Backswing projects have three parallel goals. First, to deliver a great outcome of lasting benefit to local communities. Second, to develop the employability skills of each of the participants in the project group. And thirdly, to establish self-functioning networks of people who help each other to do great work after the Backswing project has been completed.

NETWORK The group builds a network of working relationships with employers, local organisations and supporters. The group memebers supports each other in the search for great work.

Where opportunities happen.

Meshwork is designed for organisations that want to efficiently connect employers and jobseekers and achieve job outcomes in a specific geographic region or specific industry. Every region has specific needs, priorities and ways of presenting itself. Meshwork can adapt to meet these requirements and will be uniquely configured and implemented. Meshwork connects local jobseekers with employers, employment services, targeted training providers and ancillary service providers but can also provides community recources. A key element of any online solution is that the initial configuration is designed and tested to ensure it will meet expectations. It is also essential that engagement with users can achieve a ‘critical mass’ to ensure full functionality and results.

Uniquely configurated Meshwork is not just a software product. Our implementation team works in a ‘hands on’ way to ensure a Meshwork community is a success. In relation to initial implementation this includes: 1. Establishing agreed metrics for success in the implementation phase (including number of

jobseeker users, number of employer users, number of job outcomes)

2. Reaching agreement on how and when these metrics will be measured and reported 3. Actively marketing to new users through a range of channels, including social media, community

organisations and direct approaches to meet the agreed metrics and achieve ‘critical mass’.
