Hasan Gulesci’s Sea Shells

1 Comment

Hasan Gulesci is the 1st CEO of the Sabanci Group, one of Turkey’s largest conglomerates. He is like a father to me. Although Mr. Gulesci has always taken his hobbies seriously, he has transformed them into a true passion soon after retirement. Especially, his sea shell collection…

I followed Mr. Gulesci around and interviewed him about life, success and sea shells. Please make sure that you have turned Close Captioning on, and enjoy my first VideoBlog…
