Dr. Paul Bamutaze the President of East Africa Book of Records revealed they will be organizing an annual ‘Dr. Sudhir Ruparelia Business Lecture’ where the Ugandan polished entrepreneur will share his knowledge with young people across the African continent.
The first such lecture will be held at the University of Nairobi in 2019, Dr. Bamutanze revealed without giving the exact dates. He was speaking at Kabira Country Club where Dr. Sudhir Ruparelia was honored to receive the East African Business Leader Award of 2018. The award is given by East Africa Book of Records.
“Dr. Sudhir Ruparelia has shown that if you are focused, no barrier can inhibit your success. Young people look up to him and we are glad to tap into his knowledge,” Dr. Bamuntanze said.
Businessman Capt. Mike Mukula referred to Dr Sudhir Ruparelia as not only one of the best business minds on the African continent, but the whole world. “He has been able to build institutions from a humble beginning and see these institutions grow to a level of perfection. Dr. Sudhir is extremely very meticulous and very thorough,” he said.
“Without Dr. Sudhir, not many businesses would be standing in this country. There are many other entrepreneurs who are now millionaires because of his financial ingenuity,” he said.
Speaking after receiving the award, Dr. Ruparelia hoped that can be inspiration to young people. He dedicated the award to President of Uganda and his NRM government for creating an enabling environment and formulating liberal economic policies to encourage entrepreneurship.
“Without that, let me assure you that with all your business acumen, planning, hard work and dedication you will still struggle to achieve success,” he said.
