REGIONAL DIRECTOR southwest chapter

PRADEEP BHARDWAJ

  • Mr Pradeep has been part of quite a few historical moments and actually creating them – India’s 1st Public Email service, India’s 1st Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) service, India’s 1st Public Internet service, one of India’s 1st International Digital Telephony Exchanges, and then moving on first to Seychelles, the Paradise on Earth to set up mobile and international telecom services for Telecom Seychelles, followed by a stint in Melbourne, Australia designing a state-of-the-art high-speed data network for INMARSAT using a constellation of satellites. And then Destiny brought him 19 years ago to Swindon, UK which he proudly calls home now, to work on Intelligent Networks, 4G and now driving the latest 5G strategy for Carlyle Portfolio Company.

 

In spite of being an accomplished technologist in his professional career, he takes more pride as a Social worker, as a Community champion for the cause of Equality and Diversity, to bring people together and harness their collective power for a bigger vision. The one accomplishment he cherishes the most is establishing the first Hindu temple and cultural centre in Swindon and the region to enhance the lives of thousands. Pradeep is very active in many areas and holds several positions – being Founder & President of India Centre UK, Governor of Swindon College, Member of Steering Committee for Institute of Technology, Trustee of Prospect Hospice and The Ellendune Hall Trust charities, Rotarian, Parish Councillor at Wroughton Parish Council, Deputy Chairman (Political) at Swindon Conservatives, Ambassador of Switch On To Swindon, Executive Committee Member of The Old Town Festival, Chairman of Ferndale Table Tennis Club and Chairman & Trustee of Swindon Hindu Temple.

 

Pradeep has a global outlook, having travelled extensively to well over 50 countries and lived in 5 countries. Pradeep’s personal objective is to contribute towards a fair society which promotes harmony, enhances lives, encourages good citizen behaviour, based on Social Innovation through Community-based Enterprise.
