Dr. Vijay Eswaran takes on many roles. He is the co-founder and Executive Chairman of the QI Group of Companies, along with being an author and a business speaker. Dr. Eswaran has found plenty of time to turn that success into philanthropy, and he is heavily invested in projects that help with child mentoring and advancement and empowerment of women.
Dr. Eswaran knows that there is no ‘one’ correct way to operate in the business world. In order to be successful you sometimes have to change the rules or even make up your own. He also knows the value of putting together a great team. It is impossible to do everything yourself, and so surrounding yourself with the best staff and being able to trust and delegate is a key part of running an operation.
As Dr. Eswaran could be anywhere around the globe on any given day, he has learned to expect the unexpected. One of the constants that he has is the use of his smart phone to keep on top of all the latest news. With the types of days he has, he also thinks it is very important to set aside time in the morning to just be still and calm. It is a way of coping with the stress that will follow. Dr. Eswaran has never been a big proponent of following the rules. Companies and people that do that will never achieve anything but the norm. He is looking to shake things up and break into areas that people have not been willing to look at.
One of the things that keeps Dr. Eswaran motivated is the thought of some of the early jobs he had to suffer through to become the success he is now. He would certainly not want to return to the gas attendant or cab driver’s jobs he had, and so he is always looking to improve and expand his businesses.
