Background 1



The Boomerang Effect was conceived by the husband and wife team, John and Theresa Novak, who both ascribe to the central theme of Boomerang Effect, namely, “What you put out is what you get back in return”. With this tenet in mind, they launched Boomerang Effect Company dedicated to delivering a positive message and to teach strategies, skills and practical solutions for success & resilience in sport, business and school.
