Rod Drury to deliver Keynote at the NZ Law & Technology Conference

February 10th, 2016

We are excited to announce Xero CEO and founder Rod Drury as the opening keynote for the New Zealand Law and Technology Conference. 

Rod will provide an energizing start to the day, as the conference provides a platform to educate, showcase and encourage greater adoption of technology by lawyers and their firms.

Delegates will hear a success story of a kiwi who has built a technology company from New Zealand and has successfully taken it to the world. In 2014, Xero was recognised at the top of the Forbes list of the world’s most innovative growth companies, in 2014 and 2015. Xero is now New Zealand’s leading technology company, with the global small business platform serving well over 600,000 customers in 180 countries who processed over $NZ300B of transactions in the past year.

New Zealand’s leading technology entrepreneur

As New Zealand’s leading technology entrepreneur, Rod will speak about “Law and the Cloud”. His session will discuss the impact of technology, including the legal and privacy issues cloud companies like Xero have experienced, together with his Xero journey over the past 9 years. Rod’s presentation will reinforce the importance of technology and how the use of technology can simplify business for all concerned.
