Tales of resilience and triumph are woven into the fabric of human history, encompassing stories of individuals and communities overcoming adversity, facing challenges head-on, and emerging victorious despite the odds. In this CBCC Lunchtime Talk we’ll be covering personal stories, tales of resilience and triumph, as well as harm in the workplace. Harm in the workplace can take various forms, ranging from physical injuries to psychological distress. Preventing harm in the workplace requires a combination of effective safety policies, training, hazard identification, risk assessment, and employee engagement.

Renee Chahine

My 20+ years of experience in the banking and financial services industry extends across customer experience, credit, lending, relationship management and community engagement. I am currently a Senior Relationship Manager for Unity Bank where I have worked for 7+ years. In my current role I oversee a portfolio of clients, predominantly in the commercial, construction and land development sectors. My role allowed me to develop a unique set of skills and tailoring solutions based on my client’s various needs.

I am an alumna of the Swinburne University of Technology, where I recently completed my master’s in business administration. My ability to speak and write three languages fluently allowed me to help and connect with a diverse community.

I am a passionate advocate for women’s health, and a community ambassador for the National breast cancer foundation and a committee member for the Mother’s Day classic foundation which aims to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research. Last but certainly not least, and my biggest achievement by far is being the mother of my 2 beautiful teenage children.
