CanCon Podcast Ep. 88: How fucked up is your startup management?

How Fucked Up is Your Management?

If 2017 has taught us nothing else, it’s that stories of poor management in tech are not exactly uncommon. This week, the CanCon podcast is solving the management crisis. Are we promoting the wrong people in tech, or do we just suck at teaching our managers how to lead? Johnathan Nightingale, co-founder of the Raw Signal Group and experienced tech executive, joins the podcast to teach us all a thing or two about what tech management really needs.

The conversation in Canada lately has focused on how we as a country can win. We have a booming tech ecosystem, but there is still some ground to cover before we catch and surpass the United States. Tony Lacavera, founder of Wind Mobile, has been a big proponent lately of Canadian protectionism. Does Canada have enough support?

Tune in as CanCon’s podcast crew – Erin Bury, Managing Director of Eighty-Eight, Rob Kenedi, TWG’s General Manager in New York and host of the amazing #smallrooms podcast, and Johnathan Nightingale, Co-founder of Raw Signal Group – lay out a plan to make Canada the world’s tech superpower.
