Vijay Eswaran is an immensely successful entrepreneur who is at the helm of the multinational conglomerate, the QI Group. A prominent thought leader, speaker, columnist and author, he has a wide and varied fan following around the world. His professional experiences in the area of training, network marketing and business coupled with his upbringing steeped in culture, philanthropy and spirituality have given him varied insights into the human mind that he likes to share with people through his training programs and seminars that are always over-subscribed.
Mr Eswaran draws his philosophies from many great thinkers and leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Theresa, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and Winston Churchill, among others. Their ideas have shaped his thoughts, making him a firm believer in the power of an individual and of empowering one with the ability to constantly push the limit towards greater performance.
Looking to share these ideals and engage with like-minded individuals, Mr Eswaran held regular discussions at his home with a small group of 5-6 people. As the group grew larger, what began as a verbal discussion soon evolved into what we know today as the Thought of The Day programme, where a select few who are part of an inner circle, receive a daily thought from Mr Eswaran. These thoughts are sent via SMS, and posts on his Twitter and Facebook pages.
The TOD programme also gave birth to a collection of some of the most popular TODs over the years, which have inspired spirited discussions. This collection is launched as a book titled In The Thinking Zone, aimed at helping readers adopt a healthy attitude in dealing with day-to-day situations.
