Who is Megh Gupta?
Megh is the Director of Industry Solutions & Corporate Development at Element AI. He is responsible for developing the go-to-market strategy for the company along with leading its partnership and investment initiatives. Before joining Element AI, Megh spent four years as a venture capitalist at OMERS Ventures, Canada’s largest venture capital fund.

And before that? Megh spent three years in the Strategy and New Ventures team at Torstar Digital, helping to develop, launch and lead online businesses in the personal finance and mobile retail shopping sectors. He also helped manage the company’s corporate venturing initiatives and strategic planning activities.

What will Megh be discussing at the Meetup?
This month’s Meetup is all about Managing Up. As you can see from Megh’s extensive credentials, his abundance of management experience makes him an excellent guest speaker for our event. During our discussion, Megh will be sharing his thoughts on things like, who owns the majority of the responsibility for the health of the relationship – the manager or the employee? And, what’s more important, what you ask an employee to do, or what an employee asks you to do? And of course, you’ll get a chance to pick Megh’s brain during the Q&A following the talk.
Part of managing up is setting aside regular time for your employees to share their ideas, questions, issues, and feedback with you. Good news is, there’s a free app for that! SoapBox Teams helps you have better one-on-one and team meetings by reminding you to add items to your shared agenda, suggesting things to talk about, and keeping track of your discussion items so nothing falls through the cracks.
