Name: Abhishek Srivastava
Your role: Associate Director, nabONE
Region: Docklands, Victoria
What’s your story?
I was brought up in Delhi, India, and made the decision to move to Adelaide, Australia, for a work opportunity. The transition from one of busiest cities in the world (Delhi) to a place where people walking on the streets literally knew each other (in Adelaide) by their first name was very overwhelming! However, the city grew on me very quickly. Adelaide taught me some of my first Aussie lessons including about being humble and mateship – things that I will always cherish. The fact that you could go out early from work to watch your kids play football made me re-think on the way we set priorities in our life. It took us about a year but my partner and I finally made the decision to continue to live in Australia and call this place our home.
How have you made a difference?
It makes my day if what I do ends up making even a fraction of a difference to someone walking down the street. I have been with NAB for roughly 18 months and have been fortunate to work with very talented individuals who are passionate about what they do – from working to review how our bankers do business with brokers, making our credit cards work better for our customers to building a better tool for our business bankers – all of these projects have given me a platform to deliver in my own little way. Moments that matter and provide an experience that counts more than just money!
What are you passionate about?
Travelling! For me, nothing beats an experience of meeting people from different backgrounds and hearing their story. At the end of the day, it gives me an invaluable perspective of not taking things for granted, a better lens to view the world in and to always count things that I should be grateful for!
