Very recently, India Today announced the 10 best Business Leaders of 2022, and Vikas Gupta, Managing Director – Miles & Futurense Technologies is one amongst them to grab the spotlight. In an agile and digital native competitive world, what defines a leader is – Innovation. It’s not merely by virtue of possessing this competency that people become leaders but by creatively communicating it to the world, and Vikas Gupta is no exception in this case. Vikas Gupta named the best ‘business leader’ sheds light on how core competency becomes the bottom line to the emergence of every transformative leader.
What makes Vikas Gupta a differentiator in the edtech, publishing, and talent transformation space is his ability to motivate, inspire and empower creative minds that think differently to lead the organization to new heights. Building trust in a complex business ecosystem is a daunting endeavor, but Vikas Gupta made it possible over one decade as the director of Miles & Futurense Technologies, underpinning its operations, resources, and people with his gathered professional experience & strategic directions.
Gupta sees Core Competency (Innovation, Creative Problem Solving, and Leadership) as the building blocks for a potential organization, and over these past 10 years, he saw that every need of both companies is met to unravel 100% potential to accelerate competitive advantage. The next big question here is how does Vikas Gupta speak about this idea? If you recall that all prominent change-makers and leaders across the world are great storytellers in the first place, Vikas Gupta finds every interactive platform an opportunity to encourage the team to weave in the common thread of core competency in every initiative and project that the team is willing to embark on. This is one of his cookie-cutting approaches that drive excellence at both of his companies.
Many companies have built a culture of building talent that does not cross the lifespan of a butterfly, and Vikas does this uniquely by not just creating talent but an ecosystem of identifying, nurturing, deploying, and reskilling both home and abroad. Vikas Gupta as an exceptional leader develops a hustle muscle to drive value creation and has been neoteric of different products and business models.
Vikas Gupta is an unforgettable figure for the Association of Publishers in India (API) and Education Promotion Society of India (ESPI) as he has led monumental changes as its former President and promoting member. He was awarded the ‘Business Excellence and Innovative Best Practices Academia Award 2019’ by Dr. Manmohan Singh, the former Prime Minister of India, for Innovative Strategy in Digital Content, Contribution to Entrepreneurship Ecosystem.
