Palmerston North students visit Xero in San Francisco

Xero had the pleasure of hosting around 40 Palmerston North Boys’ High School students at our San Francisco head office this week.

Palmerston North boys at Xero in San Francisco

With many aspiring accountants and business owners in the room, there was a great buzz around how Xero is helping accountants spend less time doing accounting compliance work and more time advising businesses on how to grow.

We were able to give the students some background on Xero and our US market entry, and Stuart McLeod talked to them about his experience starting a company, getting acquired and then moving to the US. Our Senior Trainer, Evan Hall, also ran an exercise on small business, showing the roles and relationships involved in running one, as well as the systems and software involved.

Some Lucky Lucky students will never know what it’s like to bound to desk top applications … boy do I feel old! Fabulous to have a global kiwi company to share with our youth – #veryproudkiwi

As a parent of one of the boys who went on this tour (and a very proud kiwi as well), I really appreciate the time and energy that you gave to our young men when they visited. I am a Xero user and my son also helps me with the business accounts – I know he was really excited and impressed with the opportunity to visit and meet with the Xero team. Thanks again – you are an inspirational Kiwi company.
