Blown away by the depth of work carried out at Nadrasca

During the month, I visited Nadrasca, which is a social enterprise. In short, Nadrasca Employment is the commercial arm of Nadrasca and provides supported employment opportunities to over 120 people with disability.

I was able to tour their site and meet with Estelle Synaphet who is an important member of their transport team. Estelle joined Nadrasca’s school leavers’ program, My Life My Future in 2014 and later secured a full-time working position at Nadrasca Employment.

She has progressed during her employment and is now a leader within their warehouse administration responsible for all transport bookings, which includes pickups and deliveries.

Estelle has shown such dedication and endeavour, the business wanted her to be recognised among other women working in the transport industry.

Transport Women Australia Limited (TWAL) presented Estelle with a membership and a bag of merchandise and goodies and encouraged Nadrasca to become an active part of the TWAL community.

I was blown away by the depth of the work carried out at Nadrasca and the positive culture throughout the organisation.

Nadrasca also has a microbusiness of corporate gift sets; the Eye of Eden collection is a range of gift sets for your stakeholders, featuring items that are high value, locally sourced and longstanding. Our micro business team build and enhance their skills in stakeholder engagement, inventory management, administration and general office duties, production, delivery, social media, and email marketing.

It was a very rewarding morning, and we are now planning to take a new K220 Kenworth to the site, so everyone is extremely excited, including me.

I was excited to give the keynote speech at the 12th Victorian Major Projects Conference2023 and to meet new people and renew old friendships. The Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre is such a great location.

We have the 23rd World Congress on Safety and Health at Work in November.

We will shortly be announcing the 2023 Trish Pickering Memorial Award recipient, and we have all of our EOY events to look forward to, in late November and early December.
