In April of 2017, Mike went back to his roots in the world of finance taking up the role of Chief Customer Officer of Corporate and Institutional Banking for the NAB.
With him, he took his own personal convictions and determination to make a contribution to the community in an industry not known for sending out warm fuzzies. But Mike, being a pretty warm and fuzzie guy himself, believes there is plenty of social good a private organisation can do, "If you went into the street and asked 10 people which was the first organisation to bring domestic violence leave into the country, I don't think you would get anyone to say the NAB”.
That’s a fair call - and one that Mike is hoping to change in his new role partly through the instant and personal reach of social media to tell “stories”. Stories he says, of all those employees who make a difference to their communities and their customers. He has never been more convinced about the power of individuals to talk about their passions and what drives them. Meanwhile, the Pathfinders community is pleased to welcome Mike Baird as he joins us as the keynote speaker for the next Pathfinders Business Breakfast where we will hear his own current passions and what is driving him.
