Tell us about your career?

I started as an Agribusiness Officer in Mundubbera in 2011 before moving my family to Emerald for an Agribusiness Manager Role in early 2012. This year I relocated to Brisbane for a secondment in Bank L&D as a Capability Advisor. I work closely with Business Banking and Intermediaries to design and deliver learning based on the direction of their business in the coming 12 months. Knowing that the training we provide helps uplift my colleagues both professionally and personally is what really motivates me in this role.

Tell us about your team?

Our mission is to support our Bank’s growth and simplification by enhancing people’s capability. Put simply, we want to help our people reach their performance targets through the training and programs that we offer.

What have been some of your most exciting opportunities with Suncorp Bank?

I’ve been given some really fantastic opportunities throughout the years at Suncorp. While I was the Agribusiness Manager in Emerald, I was selected to attend a leadership and decision-making workshop at the Australian Women in Agriculture (AWIA) conference in Rockhampton.Now with this L&D secondment, I’ve been given the chance to apply the lessons learnt from other parts of the business to help design learning that gives our people the preparation to achieve their working goals.
