Tête-à-tête with Yugal Sikri, Managing Director, RPG Life Sciences and 2020 Outstanding Achievers Award winner
1. Describe in one word what you felt when you won the award
2. What was the biggest factor that contributed to your success?
The united spirit of RPG Life Sciences embodied by one and all - “Positivity + Passion, the secret to making things happen.”
3. Who is the one person whom you idolise/ lookup to, and why?
Elon Musk, who represents the belief that learning and trying new, unimaginable things must be pursued throughout one’s life. The proof lies in his string of success stories, his brand-new high-risk ventures, namely PayPal, Tesla, SpaceX, etc., and how he continues to break every glass ceiling with Neuralink. He is passionate, believes in himself, dreams big and achieves it. This mindset resonates with me.
4. If you had to award any celebrated figure, who would it be and why?
Amitabh Bachchan, who exemplifies the never-say-die spirit. He has taught us that age is but a number, and irrespective of how old, experienced, or successful one is, it is imperative to remain humble and grounded.
5. Let’s hear your resolution for 2021 as the year turns…
It’s an evergreen one. I want to create a difference in the lives of as many people as possible, both personally and professionally.
