Bashar Dhere is a self-made serial entrepreneur whose business interests span five distinctive investment spheres including hospitality, logistics, information technology and real estate.
If not quite a tale of rags to riches, the story of Mr Bashar’s rise to corporate eminence certainly comes close. Rising from abject poverty that robbed him of the chance of formalised education, he shrugged off the deprived beginning and has spent the last decade elevating his principal interest, Season Global, into a multi-million dollar logistics venture. A trusted partner to many of the world’s leading international development and humanitarian specialists, Season Global presently boasts a presence on three continents.
As a testament to his versatility, Mr Bashar recently ventured into the hospitality sector with the proverbial Midas touch evinced in two luxury boutique hotels domiciled in Nairobi’s exclusive Gigiri District.
Away from the board room and construction site, the driven Bashar unswervingly draws lessons from the world around him. Widely travelled, with 63 countries under his belt, Mr Bashar never misses an opportunity to build on his network and put into practice professional strategies that drive conversions. It is no wonder that his inspirational journey has landed coverage in broadcast, digital and print outlets around the world including the BBC and Business Daily with dramatic coverage by contemporary content creators Drew Goldberg (Drew Binsky) and Berthold Kobby Winkler Ackon (Wode Maya).
In addition to his extensive business resume, Mr Bashar is a passionate activist, humanitarian and motivational speaker driven to impact the lives and change the fortunes of youth disillusioned by the circumstances they are born in. A believer in ‘it’s how well you connect with the heart-beating people you’re trying to help and communicate your understanding back to them’, Mr Bashar’s ultimate vision is to help unlock Africa’s potential and bring prosperity to impoverished communities worldwide.
