Radwan Chowdhury serves as the CEO of McWeadon Education. Prior to joining McWeadon, he was the founder and CEO of AA Global Solutions, a leading consulting firm and UDiON Foundation a global non-profit organization “Dedicated to Educate”.
Radwan is a motivational speaker, activist, author and an entrepreneur with nearly 15 years of executive management and consulting experience, he worked with The United State Navy and the Treasury Department. Throughout his career, Radwan has won recognition for his entrepreneurial acumen; sharp business skills; a vision that transformed education and poverty; leadership qualities that won championships; and his unprecedented philanthropy.
Seeing life as a story in the process of being written, Radwan believes that the more an individual knows about his goal and mission, the better he understands the essential choices he must make in order to become more committed to achieving it. Thus, Radwan is certain that an individual choice defines his actions as well as the path he would take. To determine the best pathway, however, would require an individual to be very keen in predicting the possibilities as well as risks; while also being prepared and strong-minded to face exceedingly demanding and challenging situations when unexpected circumstances occur. This, he believes, is the key to success.
Applying the same principle in his career, Radwan’s extensive and diverse business background and his ability encompasses comprehensive knowledge in the entire facets, that coupled with his unique speaking style and he imparts a clear understanding of how generational demographics are changing the landscape of business, which enabled him to lead several pioneering projects. Radwan’s extensive business and leadership acumen were both honed by his personal experiences. Early on, Radwan already understood the value of perseverance and commitment.
Although he has been blessed to have distinguished academic careers, his most challenging and fulfilling mission to date is the total eradication of poverty from the world and educating and leading Asian Americans (AsAm) in exercising their right to bring about the democratic changes they wish to see. He’s “Dedicated to the Unfinished Work of Equal Opportunity and Justice for All”.
Realizing that there must be something terribly wrong with the society we live in, this inspired him to commit himself and founded the UDiON Foundation, with mission to eradicate poverty one family at a time, he believes “Education is the best way to end the cycle of poverty and the exploitation of children” he strongly believes “Illiteracy is the birth place of poverty”. He believes the mission is critical; the task is challenging but the quest is noble, the challenge is enormous, and the mission is sacred and must not fail.
Radwan is best known in the Asian Community as a leader around issues of Equal Opportunity, Education and Poverty, and he regularly provides mentorship to future leader’s (our youth). He has spoken in many national and international conferences and participated in many round-table discussions. Radwan has received widespread recognition, awards and honors for his work, Including the Life Time Service Award “Call to Service” by President Barak Obama in 2011, Diversity and Inclusion Award by El-Beth Development Center, he was listed as Most Influential Asian American in NE FL by Indo-US Chamber of Commerce, he was also the nominee of 2015 OneJax Humanitarian Award. Moreover, Radwan consistently received academic excellence awards and commendations for his diverse business background.
At this point, one might ask how success could be measured. Rather than gauging the ability to succeed, one must consider the imperativeness of accomplishing such achievement. In Radwan’s case, what has been said are just some of the things rightfully enough to describe someone who has already succeeded but still aspires to do much more. Radwan reminds us that success is not about the achievements. Rather, it is all about making a difference in everything one does by displaying the right virtues.
