Deepak Ohri’s childhood home was modest, a one-room flat in a lower-middle-class area of New Delhi, but it was filled with love and life lessons. Small luxuries were scarce and savored—a toy car, a cold soda—and awakened Ohri to the possibility of a future filled with abundance. Now the CEO of lebua Hotels & Resorts, a global collection of 5-Star hotels and fine restaurants in Thailand, New Zealand, and India, Ohri has launched dozens of successful restaurants and bars and is credited with elevating luxury hospitality in the Asian Pacific. lebua has been named the World’s Leading All-Suite Hotel by World Travel Awards and is rated within the top 1 percent of companies in the world for customer satisfaction. This book explores how Ohri’s humble beginnings have fueled his innovative entrepreneurial spirit and have informed his deeply human-centered approach to business and to life. In an industry where profit is often placed over people, Ohri is committed to compassion, care, and creating powerful emotional connections that can last a lifetime. “Ohri is a visionary in every sense of the word.” —Forbes
