Paul Spain

Futurist, CEO, Tech & Business Commentator

Paul Spain is a futurist and communicator who shares from his years of experience in the fields of business, technology and digital media to inspire and educate audiences. Even well before Paul founded Gorilla Technology at age 24 his unique talents had attracted the attention of Microsoft, Ogilvy & Mather and Auckland University of Technology amongst others.

Paul is regularly invited by global leaders such as Ford, Intel, Samsung, HP and Microsoft to attend their events around the world – including visits to research centres, conferences and events in United Kingdom, China, Italy, India, United States, Singapore and Taiwan.

Today Paul Spain is regularly featured in the media and as a speaker at events both private and public. In a typical month he will communicate with over 100,000 people on topics such as a futurist mindset, technology enablement, innovation and disruption, strategic thinking and business trends.
Paul loves to inspire positive and strategic change in his audiences. He often does this by painting a forward-thinking picture and discussing practical ways individuals and organisations can position themselves for success – rather than being disrupted by others.

Paul Spain is host of NZ Business Podcast and NZ Tech Podcast and features across numerous TV and Radio news shows. In these segments Paul discusses the crossover between business and technology – in addition to looking at consumer trends. His NZ Business Podcast features discussions with leaders such as Sir Stephen Tindall (The Warehouse Group), Rod Drury (Xero), Sir Michael Hill and Sir Graham Henry (All Blacks).
