For Vijay Eswaran, it started out as a small project during his part-time job where he provided marketing advice. He asked his clients he was facilitating to talk about what their requirements were and what they wanted from their investments. His advice led to success one after another to finally make him one of the few successful businessmen in Asia.
Born on October 7th 1960, Vijay had a humble upbringing growing in a middle-class family. His parents moved from one location to another, sometimes overseas, to fulfill their work and family needs. Vijay Eswaran had the opportunity to graduate from the London School of Economics with a degree in socio-economics because that is where his passion was. He then moved to Europe and due to financial constraints took odd jobs like cab driver, fruit picker and construction worker in various places like London, France and Belgium. Little did he know that his talent would take him this far, the place he is right now. While in UK, he obtained certification from CIMA and moved on to complete MBA from Southern Illinois University. He got involved in multi-level marketing scheme, the subject he was very much interested in and simultaneously worked for Synaptics in the US. His enthusiasm for marketing brought him to Malaysia where he started his first venture with Cosway Group. Joining them he thought would be like a hand to hold or a friend to talk to as he went through the selection process and passed. It is there that he took his MLM business more seriously.
After retuning to Asia in 1998, Vija,y equipped with lots of knowledge from his venture, co-founded a MLM group called QI that provided a wide array of business support for travel, luxury, media, telecommunications, training, wellness and corporate investment purposes. As he began his group, he was giving tours of the establishment for prospective clients in the international level. He saw that all of those clients had some form of connection between his services and their businesses. Subsequently, his services were crafted by listening to their needs. His company now has regional offices and subsidiaries in many countries such as Malaysia, Hong Kong, Thailand and Singapore.
Vijay Eswaran is not only a well-known entrepreneur but a public speaker as well. He has given a number of talks at many business and management forums both in India and abroad. Some of the events include Pravasi Bharatiya Divas and World Economic Forum. His book called “in the Sphere of Silence” that is based on life management and meditation is a must-read. His interactive program called “Thought of the Day” is a very helpful tool for people suffering from everyday life stress and anxiety in the business field.
