Give and Receive – NAB Corporate Volunteer tells us about their day at Marriott Industries


By Jennifer Lumsden, July 24 2019

The day started with induction and I was amazed at the substantial amount of work done at Industries. So much work and everyone is so friendly and focused at work.

The morning tea and lunch were lovely times to meet the entire team and say hello, smile and know what they are working on for the day. After I worked with the team for a day I realised I must keep learning at a faster pace and was also motivated to know more.

Since the day I volunteered, the way I look at things has changed, starting the very next day while shopping over the weekend, I thought about the efforts of those working untiringly at Marriott Support Services.

I have many learnings to carry forward to my personal and professional life for the years ahead. If given a chance, I would love to come again to work.

Thank you to NAB and Marriott Support Services for giving me this opportunity to Volunteer. A special thanks to Erica, Bill, Cheryl and the entire team to guide me in the best way to experience a wonderful day of Volunteering at Marriott Support Services.
