For the majority of entrepreneurs and philanthropists, achieving success in just one of these fields would be enough to create a successful career but for Shiraz Boghani success comes in both business and charitable endeavors.
In 2016, the success of Shiraz Boghani in the hospitality industry since he made his initial mark in 1990 was awarded the well-deserved accolade of Hotelier of the Year at the Asian Business Awards; Boghani does not measure his personal success in terms of awards as he feels any individual honors he achieves are a result of a long-term team effort be members of his business groups.

The award for the Splendid Hospitality Group Chair has come after he led the group on an unprecedented period of success beginning in the 1990s when he was one of the first hoteliers in the U.K. to develop limited service locations which proved a major success.

Over the course of his career, Shiraz Boghani has looked to use his own personal success to provide a better life for the people of the U.K. and the world through his work with the Aga Khan Foundation and for the Ismaili community. Adding to the literacy levels of children and adults around the world has become a major part of the life of the leader of the Sussex Healthcare brand as he has worked to develop the educational opportunities open to people across the planet.
