Simplify, Automate, Grow

BDO Gisborne shares more on how technology can benefit your business - with inspiring practical stories and specialist guest speakers.

What's it all about?

BDO Gisborne are passionate about using cutting-edge technology to provide innovative and tailored solutions for businesses in Tairawhiti.  Hear from New Zealand’s leading business system developers from Artificial Intelligence (AI) to Cyber Security. Find out how this technology can benefit your business today.

Our team will share their inspiring practical stories on how local businesses have forged ahead and benefited by embracing new business systems. Learn how businesses in your sector (farming, forestry, retail and services) have moved from clunk to funk, freeing up time, smashing pain-points
and enabling them to seek timely advice to make better decisions. From sole trader to big business, you will discover the way to gain a competitive advantage through technology.

Grab a drink from our on-site coffee cart and enjoy a tasty morsel.  Food and beverages are available throughout the morning. Sit in on guest speakers and story-tellers or make the most of our breakout room to chat with your local BDO advisers.
