This is an audiobook of the report "Structuring for Impact: Evolving Legal Structures for Business in New Zealand" that was released 17 April 2019 (index of key sections is below).  I am really proud to have been involved as one of the co-authors and wanted to provide a different platform for it be accessible on here for those who might listen but not want to read the whole thing.  Grateful assistance on this was received from my wife Ellie Moe, who read out the quotes from those who were interviewed.  And many thanks for the collaboration with many to pull the report together, a massive team effort but in particular thanks Jane, Jackson, Louise, Ed, Amber and Phillippa.  

The report can be downloaded here.
