Adapting to change in difficult times

1 April 2014

Around 500 people attended the Suncorp Bank-hosted agribusiness roadshows in New South Wales last month.

The events in Griffith, Wagga Wagga and Albury heard from former test cricketer Kerry O’Keeffe after his recent retirement from commentating.

Suncorp Bank’s Regional General Manager for New South Wales, Stephen Morgan said Kerry overcame many obstacles in his life both as a cricketer and a commentator.

“Kerry recently left his commentating position and is now on the path to a new life, and it was great to hear him talk about overcoming adversity and embracing change,” Mr Morgan said.

The events in Dubbo, Tamworth and Moree heard from Winter Olympic gold medal winner Steven Bradbury OAM.

“Steven is a household name after his gold medal win but it was interesting to hear his stories about the courage and determination that saw him compete at the highest level,” Mr Morgan said.

Suncorp Bank’s Head of Financial Markets Darryl Conroy and Financial Analyst Jordan Karlos shared their expert knowledge and insights into the economy, recent financial market movements, interest rates, currencies and commodities.

Suncorp’s Business Development Manager Amanda Martin talked about some key changes to superannuation.

After a tough few years for New South Wales agriculture the Suncorp Bank roadshow series played an important part in offering people an opportunity share their ideas with other business leaders.
