When your business’ future is up in the air, it can be a good idea to focus on your core values and passions. For two Wellington-based tech companies, New Zealand’s initial lockdown presented opportunities for both innovation and reflection. For Jessica Manins, CEO of virtual reality social gaming business Beyond, it was a time to explore how social gaming could connect people in their homes. For Nic Gibbens from digital agency PaperKite, lockdown created capacity to develop an app called Rippl that would not only give their staff purpose, but helped them create a solution that could benefit the country. Both these experiences led each business owner to reflect on their roles within their businesses and how they should position themselves for success personally and professionally. Hear their insights as we continue to work through the ongoing impacts of COVID-19. Hosted by New Zealand Herald Business Editor at Large, Liam Dann. The guests featured in this podcast are sharing their own views and experiences.
