NAB Conversations



This week, the NAB Executive Leadership Team got to know local communities as they met with customers and visited branches across Australia.

Over three days the Executive Leadership Team travelled more than 7,000km’s across Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia. We’re committed to learning more about our customers so we can provide them the best possible banking experience. Having a passion for customers is everyone’s job, we’re all accountable, not just our bankers on the frontline.
