Over 100 guests from Victoria’s business community gathered at Melbourne Museum recently for Bank of Melbourne’s Diwali celebration.
Guests were treated to keynote speaker Australian cricket legend Glenn McGrath’s stories of his fondness for his time playing cricket and spending time in the community in both Melbourne and India. One of his lessons to business leaders was that success—on field as part of the Australian cricket team and off field with the McGrath Foundation—is about building a team of great people.
Bank of Melbourne Chief Executive Michelle Winzer spoke about the importance of a thriving Indian business community to a strong and prosperous Victoria, and highlighted Bank of Melbourne’s migrant and multicultural banking team who are dedicated to the needs of people who have relocated to Australia.
“Victoria’s melting pot of cultures makes Melbourne one of the most liveable cities in the world. You only need to walk through the city to see how our diverse community has created a vibrant economy that’s one of the strongest in Australia. Multiculturalism is part of the Victorian way of thinking, and our way of life,” said Ms Winzer.
“Our outstanding migrant and multicultural banking team is here to support our customers as they build their life here. Almost half of our staff speak more than one language. And like a quarter of Victorians, many are migrants themselves.”
