The New Zealand Business Podcast exists to support New Zealanders in business and leadership by providing access to the wisdom and experience of others. We enable this by providing NZ’s best and brightest a platform to share their stories in a relaxed environment. The podcast is hosted by Paul Spain and since late 2013 has been sponsored by BNZ.



The NZ Business Podcast was born out of NZ #1 local dedicated podcast – the NZ Tech Podcast which launched in early 2011 and soon reached the coveted top spot on iTunes NZ charts. Following the successful launch of the NZ Tech Podcast, host Paul Spain began looking for further outlets that could combine his interests in the areas of technology, business, leadership and entrepreneurship. One result is the launch of the NZ Business Podcast in early August 2013.



Leaders who have featured on the NZ Business Podcast include:

  • Rod Drury (Founder, CEO – Xero)
  • Sir Stephen Tindall (The Warehouse, K1W1 fund, Tindall Foundation, KEA)
  • Hamish Carter (Sir Peter Blake Trust, Olympic Gold Medalist)
  • Catherine Robinson (Kiwi Landing Pad)
  • Chris Quin (CEO – Telecom Retail)
