In this episode of Future Squared, I bring you two executives from Bank of New Zealand - Lannon Durrant - Senior Manager in BNZ’s Partnership Team, and Connor Shelley, Head of Transformation and Innovation.
Bank of New Zealand recently partnered with Collective Campus to run a startup partnership program, whereby we scoured the globe to find, connect with and evaluate startups and scaleups that could help BNZ solve specific business challenges.
In this episode, we unpack lessons learned from the program that can be beneficial for both startup founders looking to sell to large organizations, as well as corporate executives looking to drive innovation and partner with startups.
With that, I bring you Connor Shelley and Lannon Durrant.
Your host and occasional cybernetic organism, Steve Glaveski, is committed to helping people better navigate the growing uncertainty that technology change brings, in order to survive, thrive, create more value for the world and lead more fulfilling lives.

When not fighting T-1000s Steve can be found in the gym, hiking, skating at the beach, attempting standup comedy, at a heavy metal show or socially lubricating at a whisky bar.
