In this ITP special webinar at the end of Level 3 lockdown, Xero founder and ITP Honorary Fellow Rod Drury, Orion Health founder Ian McCrae and Deloitte business consultant Eva Sherwood join ITP CEO Paul Matthews to discuss how Tech can lead New Zealand's recovery. 

The battle to save lives is hopefully drawing to a close, but the battle to save livelihoods is just beginning. If New Zealand is going to emerge from this global pandemic on top, we're going to have to make some changes.

Rod, Ian and Eva will outline their vision on how tech can lead the recovery for New Zealand, what steps the Government and Industry need to take now, and how we can meet the world's needs and grow our exports like never before.

If you only attend one webinar this pandemic, this is it. Come and be a part of it with extensive live Q&A - your questions and comments to the panel.
