From Morning Report, 8:27 am on 12 June 2020

A leading New Zealand tech boss says a new global workforce could emerge in the wake of Covid-19 where borders are irrelevant and the office is replaced with video conferencing apps like Zoom.

Anna Cuzron, chief product officer at Xero, made the comments in the RNZ podcast, After the Virus, which talks to New Zealand and international experts about the post-pandemic world.

The series is hosted by RNZ's Guyon Espiner, who filed this report.
