After spending time in Ireland, Simon Walker was amazed at how the country, especially Dublin, had pulled itself out of the doldrums of the 80s to become a world-class tech hub.

The chief executive and founder of tech-focused marketing company Proposition brought those thoughts back to Aotearoa New Zealand with him, and although there are many differences between us, he saw enough similarities that we could learn a thing or two.

Walker explains his vision for NZ's tech-based economy and the lessons he learned in Ireland that led him there.

Also, we talk about the NZ startup with its eyes on an NZX listing, the dire need for an NZ cybersecurity strategy, and Australia's investment into quantum and beyond.
