Many people are in awe when they see the wildly successful and economically powerful organization that Vijay Eswaran, CEO and chairman of the QI Group, has built. The company began as an idea the Cosway Group shared with Vijay Eswaran in the Philippines in the late 1990s. Today, the QI Group has millions of customers in almost two dozen countries, regional offices in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand and generates about a billion dollar a year in revenue. It’s an amazing accomplishment indeed. One that Vijay Eswaran has made possible by sharing a gift that’s precious and powerful.

The gift Vijay Eswaran has shared with the staff of the QI Group and anyone who reads his books and articles and listens to his talks, is the essence of his personal philosophy. Vijay Eswaran teaches that if you have the right mindset, a good plan and are willing to work hard and smart, you can accomplish any goal. Eswaran’s words take on greater meaning and influence when people consider all he has been able to do. Born into a working-class family in Penang, Malaysia, Vijay Eswaran has earned degrees in the U.K and the U.S.A. and built a billion dollar business from scratch in the midst of an economic downturn.

In his books, On The Wings of Thought, In the Sphere of Silence, 18 Stepping Stones and In The Thinking Zone and his articles Two Minutes From The Abyss, The Stages Of Change, 3 Ways Fear Drives Success and the 5 Cs Of Servant Leadership, Vijay Eswaran teaches people to harness the power within and use it to attain their goals.

One Eswaran uses in his personal and professional life.

Making people’s dreams come true is important to Vijay Eswaran. So he gives generously through his charitable organizations the RYTHM Foundation and the Vijayaratnam Foundation. He has done so much, Forbes Asia named Vijay Eswaran among their ‘Heroes of Philanthropy’.
