A person that can run a company may be able to speak in public, but he may not necessarily be a public speaker. This is what makes Vijay Eswaran stand out as a giant among men. As the leader of QNet he may be one of the the most fascinating leaders because he is so well-rounded.
His wide spectrum of jobs may have given Eswaran a unique perspective. He had a mother that was a teacher, and this may have also given Vijay a different way to look at the world. What he has managed to do is carve out a pathway to success by breaking down his leadership skills and offering motivation to others through books and public speaking. What Vijay has done is offer up books that not only take on business but also at expound on personal matters.
