An intimate chat with Dorry Kordahi

In the opening dinner of 2019, the Australian Arab Business Council members had the pleasure of listening to Dorry Kordahi – Managing Director of DKM Blue.

Dorry has received such accolades as Four-time BRW Fast Starter, Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Finalist, Five-time BRW Young Rich List – and many more. Dorry is also a 3-time published author, most recently with is book titled – Win Big; Risk Small. To ensure we maximise our opportunity to speak with Dorry, the format was a Q&A session, hosted by Sandra Goodwin, Board Member and Director of Pheonix Group.

Having started from a small shed in his parents’ back yard, with no university degree or financial backing just a steely determination to succeed, Dorry carved a multi-million dollar success story from nothing and became one of the country’s most inspirational entrepreneurs.

The topics covered through the discussion included understanding Dorry’s inspiration origin, his family life and his youth, his path through sport – in particular Basketball – and the similarities in applying sporting principles in business, China and the role China has played in Dorry’s career, etc.
