Digital Business Masterclass

Xero Masterclass with Gary Turner

In 2006, a small team got together in New Zealand to disrupt the way business accounting was done. They created Xero, a cloud based platform that radically reimagined how businesses could manage their own accounting. 

12 years on, and their impact has been breath-taking.

Their operating revenue last year was £406 million. They have nearly 1.4 million subscribers in 180 countries worldwide. And in the last financial year, $2.15 trillion in transactions were recorded across the Xero platform.

In our interview with Gary Turner (one of Xero's Co-Founders and MD for the UK, Middle East and Africa) we discuss Xero's remarkable growth, what it has taught them, and the opportunity that the digital revolution now offers all businesses everywhere.
