In a recent article featured in Your Mark On The World, Bob Reina CEO of Talk Fusion discusses building the company as well as being able to give back to communities in need worldwide. Bob Reina is the founder of Talk Fusion and takes his role as the CEO of a major company seriously in the sense that he feels that he needs to give back to those that need help. The company was founded on that set of values and is interwoven in the structure of the company itself. For example, Bob Reina donated $1 million to the Tampa Bay Humane Society as well as substantial donations to Indonesian orphanages. He has even created a program that allows his affiliates to donate an account to charity. He feels that even the less fortunate need to be able to communicate with loved ones all over the world. The donated plans are part of their best plan called the Custom Monthly Plan.
Bob Reina has the changed the lives of many individuals, not only from his charitable donations but also through his business opportunities. Many of the affiliates have been able to achieve success through their work with Talk Fusion. Bob Reina took a completely different career path earlier in his adult years. He graduated from the University of Florida as number one in his police academy class. Although he chose a career in law enforcement, he had always had an entrepreneurial drive. His inspiration for the Talk Fusion platform came from an incident where he wanted to send a video to a friend about a home he was checking out but was unable to send it through AOL. He knew that there was a demand for a more capable email, video, and talk solution that could better connect individuals and give them the capability to communicate more effectively.
Bob contacted an IT friend and explained that he wanted to create an all in one marketing video solution. From that conversation, Talk Fusion was born. Today, it is one of the fastest growing video marketing tools in the world. Companies love the way that the platform allows them to effectively stay connected and use a wide range of video and email solutions to more efficiently conduct business.
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.
