As the end of the year draws closer, I can’t help but count my blessings. This October, I had the privilege of participating in the ‘76th Facilities Management- Commercial Real Estate & West Leadership Award Summit’, organized by CE Worldwide at The Westin, Mumbai. The summit is a platform that has hosted some of the top industry professionals and experts whom I respect and look up to.
I was honored to participate as a panelist discussing ‘The Importance of Integrated Procurement Strategy in Corporate Real Estate’. Sitting alongside me were Capt. Sandeep Chauhan, Group Head Facilities, Network18 Media & Investments and Amit Verma, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Services Procurement, Reliance Industries. It was a pleasure to listen to Amit talk about his upcoming project- the 18-storey Convention Centre in BKC, Mumbai, which is going to set new standards for convention centers in India. Not only was it a real delight to interact and engage with them and the other panelists – Vinay Kumar Srivastava of Blue Dart Express and Bippin Aswani of Citibank – but also an extremely enriching experience to hear some of the biggest voices from various sectors share their ideas on one stage.
Receiving the Leadership Award for Professional Excellence in Architectural Services has deeply touched and humbled me, for it marks the acknowledgement of all the hard work of the entire Team of JTCPL Designs. I felt a great sense of gratitude representing my excellent team on the very platform that has recognized some of the most eminent names in the industry. The experience was gratifying in more ways than one and I’d like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to the CE Worldwide Team.
