Programs & Operations
Every dream could help having an architect and partner. Roopak is that and more. Being a relationship wellness enthusiast himself, Roopak embarked on his entrepreneurial journey with Sophia, as the Co-Founder of The Little Things (TLT).
Most part of his 15 years corporate work life revolved around human-centric approach in design leading to problem-solving, which involved enabling ergonomically designed workplaces through keen observation of and studying the needs, interaction and behaviour of the people at the workplace with the things, the other people around them, the physical place itself, and more importantly how they felt about themselves – their experience. He infuses these observations of the influence of inter-personal and intra-personal relationship wellness in the human-centric approach towards intimate partner relationships as one of the core designers of the TLT framework. This comes from years of attending, facilitating, and studying, scores of corporate and social relationship strengthening and bonding programs. His combined experiences in field of structural designing, workplace design insight development, people engagement, project management and business management adds value to the collective.
He is also a trained professional in Gottman Method Couples Therapy and Prepare/Enrich, both of which are among the most researched, evidence-based of the couples therapy methods.
