Kolkata: Positive disruption to the industry is happening right now because the future is already here. Thanks to The International Architect, Author, Advisor, Professor Dr SAPTARSHI SANKAR CHAKRABARTI, who is a Chartered Architect by Profession, a Smart City Specialist (Intelligent Urban Solutions, Healthcare & Sustainable Architecture), an Indian Green Building Council Accredited Professional (IGBC™-AP), seasoned over two decades of hands-on experience in spearheading numerous multidisciplinary projects, research and development, and mentoring throughout the domain of Architecture, Interior Design, Urban Design, Master Planning, Landscaping, and Smart City Missions across India and abroad.
Scientists say that a whopping 92% of people who set their goals never actually achieve them. The University of Scranton has confirmed that only 8% of people achieve success in their endeavours. “It takes years to become an overnight success!” rightly said by the British business magnate Sir Richard Charles Nicholas Branson.
In an exclusive interview with our correspondent, Dr CHAKRABARTI shared his deep-rooted feelings towards the profession. He says – “Architects and designers who love to design, to create, to dream big ideas, should not only be creator of beautiful ideas, but also be conversant with overarching business tasks like marketing and sales and public relations, and so on, which are equally important for an organization as a whole to grow. While we must love working, we should know how to find the right clients to work for, and we should also know how to manage our payroll and navigate any bidding process.” His multiple professional research-oriented Books published on Amazon International speaks the same.
Our sources discovered that apart from being an eminent Industry Consultant, a Thought Leader, a Published Author, a Serial Entrepreneur, a Mentor and a Keynote Speaker (International) for the past two decades, operating extensively throughout South Asia and beyond, Dr CHAKRABARTI had also been authorized for mentoring as a Sector/Trade Expert, by the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE), Government of India.
