CEO Janine, hope for 2019 – let’s be brave

By Jennifer Lumsden, December 15 2018









As we prepare to farewell 2018 and head into the Christmas season, I particularly enjoy this time of the year, as it is an opportunity to reflect on our achievements both individually and for us at Marriott.

2018 has been a year of many challenges and rewards for us all. I feel immensely proud that we have not just met the challenges of the NDIS, we have exceeded expectations and achieved some terrific outcomes for those we support.

Of course, these outcomes are only possible by working together, the Board, staff, volunteers, families and carers of those we support and our community. It is through our collective impact that we make the greatest difference.

My hope for 2019

Reflects a comment made by Chris Varney, of I CAN Network, who spoke at our AGM

“Let’s be brave enough to embrace the opportunities to do things differently and create the best opportunities.”

On behalf of all of us at Marriott, I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and safe and Happy New Year.
