Our Ambassadors Speak

The best thing about being company ambassadors is connecting and communicating with so many people.

As company ambassadors, we reflected on the great times spent with staff and clients, and the impact our role has with the company. Being an ambassador for anything is important; you're a representative and a promoter. Representing La Trobe Financial at events for clients and businesses in the finance industry is a great way for us to showcase the La Trobe Financial brand and our shared values.

Our presentations are filled with strong themes and core values that La Trobe Financial is aligned with - commitment, persistence, performance, excellence, focus and resilience. All of these core values and attributes are needed for the success of any individual or company. The founders and current staff of La Trobe Financial use and need all of the above elements and characteristics to build what is now one of Australia's leading credit specialists serving both borrowers and retail investors, and we are proud to promote those trademark qualities with businesses working with La Trobe Financial

When we link our journey as world class athletes to our roles at La Trobe Financial, the audience gets it. They understand that La Trobe Financial and its ambassadors are a good fit; we share the same values, and that's why we are successful.

Travelling as Company Ambassador

Our role takes us to many great places and the opportunity to meet many wonderful people.

We have travelled as far west as Perth and as North as Cairns to represent and promote La Trobe Financial. The feedback we receive following our presentations from people that live as far away as Western Australia and Queensland is...

"Living so far away limits us from having the great things that you get in the city, you just don't get access to people like you".

Being sent to smaller cities, spending time with customers, clients and other business owners is not just a treat for them but it's a treat for us. La Trobe Financial can be really proud that distance, destination and size doesn't influence the impact we want to have on Australians.

Our role as La Trobe Financial company ambassadors is also international. Each year we have the pleasure to present to the attendees of the La Trobe Financial China Scholarship program. We really love to get in front of the participants and share with them stories about our travels as former elite athletes.

We are excited about our next 12 months as La Trobe Financial company ambassadors; spending another wonderful year doing everything that we can to represent the company and improve the lives of others.

If you want us at your next event call Caterina Nesci on 13 80 10 to check availability.
