The Self-Made myth

PMI Sydney invites members and non-members to join us on 6th August 2024 for an enlightening session with experienced speaker Arnab Dasgupta. Navigating through leadership, decision-making, and interpersonal skills, Arnab urges the audience to recognize and question psychological illusions. His aim is to empower the audience with heightened awareness for navigating challenges.

The first 25 registrants will receive a copy of Arnab's latest book, 25 Career Nuggets.

As always, registration is free for members and students. 1 PDU will be claimable. 


SPEAKER - Arnab Dasgupta


With over 17 years of experience as an IT project, program, and operations manager at renowned companies like Optus, AT&T, and IBM, Arnab has honed his skills in managing complex technology initiatives. Beyond his professional career, Arnab is also passionate about creating video content, educating people, and writing about corporate mental health and science. Arnab's unique ability to blend creativity with technical expertise brings a fresh perspective to the field of IT management.




In this talk, Arnab challenges the prevailing "self-made man" myth, asserting that true success is never achieved in isolation, and freewill is merely an illusion. As we delve into practical career advice, Arnab explores topics like decision-making, overcoming procrastination, managing time effectively, and addressing cross-cultural gaps. Each sheds light on the interconnectedness of success.

It's crucial to understand the ongoing responsibility to be your best self for a satisfying life. Depart with fresh perspectives, challenging conventional wisdom, and paving the way for a more mindful and interconnected approach to your personal and professional growth.
