Vijay Eswaran believes it’s important to live a life guided by principle and a commitment to help others, and spiritual practices also have an importance both in personal life and in the workplace. Eswaran is an entrepreneur and an author who wrote a 2005 book titled “In The Sphere Of Silence” which details his rituals in meditation and silence. Even though the book may be over 10 years old, Eswaran says that the world is growing in distractions especially with increased mobile phone usage, and sometimes breaking from these distractions and finding inner peace can do a lot for your health and well-being.
Vijay Eswaran is from Malaysia and also has connections to India where his parents came from. He looked up to his father growing up who worked hard as an ambassador for the Malaysian Ministry of Labor and also taught Eswaran and his siblings about generosity towards others and the value of spiritual practices. Eswaran’s educational achievements include a bachelor’s degree in socioeconomics from the London School of Economics, and a master’s degree from Southern Illinois University.
Vijay Eswaran tried various gigs until he discovered multilevel marketing, and when he saw how he could sell products and allow independent business owners to sell them to their customers, he decided to start his own company. He and Joseph Bismark began QI Group Ltd. in 1998, and under that started an e-commerce company known as QNET where most of QI’s direct selling takes place. They also offer funding resources to small businesses at QI Asset Management, logistics operations at Quex Courier and a university partnership with the Malaysian government at QI University which is now building its QI City campus. Eswaran is also the founding partner of Raise Yourself To Help Humanity (RYTHM) Foundation.
Vijay Eswaran had to go through several setbacks on the way to building QI Group Ltd. into the successful company it is now, but he always focused on how his work there could help others and eventually people understood just what the company was about. His work in business and philanthropy was honored in 2012 when he was given the New Global Indian award at the Global Indian Meet. He’s also given several speeches at the World Economic Forum when he’s attended it.
