Spread the love

Hey You

Every Monday, I head out to discover new aspects of Personal Development through interviews with inspirational guests who transformed their life’s. Together, we step back in history, as we explore what it takes to realise and act upon big Life-Changing Opportunities. Don’t reinvent the wheel but learn from the experiences of others. Naturally your own journey is unique but the success of other’s might be that little push you need to get started.

Ammar Akhtar is Founder and CEO of a Successful International Business, 1CallGroup and FinalRentals, in Dubai. He is an Executive MBA student at the prestigious MIP – Politecnico di Milano in Italy and the probably one of our most energetic digital entrepreneurs out there. But this is only half of the story about why I invited him on the show. Ammar grew up in a poor family in Pakistan where startup and business wasn’t part of a vocabulary he knew. Against all odds, he discovered his talent and since then nothing has been able to hold him back. Ammar is the brain behind the online booking systems of Budget, Thrifty, Dollar in UAE, among others.
