Sabyasachi Sengupta is a banker and a speaker in the Netherlands. He has worked in major banking giants like Lehman Brothers, Credit Suisse, Nomura and currently working with ABN AMRO Bank in Amsterdam. In his 12 years of careers, he has seen major highs and lows in this industry. From the big fat bonuses to bankruptcy, from generous perks to major cost-cutting.
He ventured into the world of public speaking in 2010. He found his true passion on the stage. In 2014, he won the Dutch-speaking competition (in English) and represented The Netherlands in the European Finals and came 2nd. In 2015, he became the European champion of public speaking. Since then he started his journey as a keynote speaker, trainer, and moderator.
The love for the stage has taken him to various places including TEDx, corporate summits, university events, Congress. He has also shared his opinion and stories on several Dutch television, vlogging channels, radio and print media.
Sabyasachi is also a member of Rotary Club in Amsterdam where with the team they try to help people, especially children in need. He used to teach at an underprivileged school Asha Kiran in Mumbai and he considers that year as a teacher as one of the most fulfilling years of his life.
His new talk “ Adversity Management” is based on the turbulence he has seen in the last 12 years. Besides personal experience, he has taken inputs from Senior Directors from banks that went bust in the crisis, International sports legend, politicians from the European Union, young talents who were nominated as Forbes 30 under 30. The idea of the talk is very simple, what should you do today so that you are ready for any turbulence in the future.
One of Sabyasachi’s favorite quote is “ If you sweat more during peacetime, you bleed less during wartime”.
Are you ready today to take on unforeseen turbulence at your current job? Have you ever wondered how you would react in the face of adversity in your career? What will happen if your company suddenly decides to wrap it up, or you get a pink slip and lose your job? What if your artificial intelligence makes your job redundant overnight?
We live in a time, where any adversity may be just around the corner and we cannot avoid it. What can we do to best prepare for adversity if it decides to knock on our door? If you’re thinking about Adversity Management, bang on! My talk is titled 13 principles of Adversity Management and I will share 13 ways we can be prepared from any adversity in your career. It is a topic that I derive inspiration from my Lehman Brothers day. The central idea is what should you do today at your work and profession so that you are ready for the adversity if any at a later date. For this not only I have used my own example but also interviewed senior directors of bankrupt yet big companies, legendary sportsmen and people who made it to Forbes 30 under 30 So learn why and how adversity can be managed for being future-ready for any seen-unseen predicament.

"Hans Kazàn was een groot succes. Ik was onder de indruk van de open manier waarop hij sprak over zijn tegenslagen en hoe hij deze heeft overwonnen. Uiteraard sloegen ook zijn illusie effecten aan en het was bijzonder hoe hij het publiek bij zijn lezing betrok."

Saby helped me to develop the storytelling competencies of the students in my class. Storytelling can be perceived as a hard to master skill. Saby managed to demystify this skill by breaking it down into logical steps and comprehensible frameworks. Through his structured approach and pleasant appearance, he engaged the students to start practicing and applying the lessons learned. His teaching and coaching has definitely increased the quality of the students’ work. I would wholeheartedly recommend him as a lecturer and coach in storytelling and public speaking.

Saby’s Master Class at Uva was equally useful and entertaining. He has a confident appearance, a well-structured message and a casual still thought-out scenario which provided us with theoretical background but also left room to exercise and present the newly acquired story-telling methods. Saby’s sense of humor, improvisation skills and interactions with the group contributed greatly to the positive atmosphere of the workshop. For me personally this class confirmed the importance and necessity of improving my presentation skills, listening to my classmate’s speeches made me aware of the common mistakes and by Saby’s feedbacks we learned how we can avoid or correct them. Most important learning points were the short methods he presented. Since then I pay more attention to the speeches of my colleagues and actually already spotted some of the methods by presentations given by senior managers at my company.
