He is a founding director of the marketing and advertising conglomerate, QI Group of Companies, headquartered in the Philippines and a co-founder of QNet, a direct selling company, and the main subsidiary of the QI group.
Bismark himself stated that he was not initially a corporate person at the time he was appointed a managing director of the group since he felt his forte rested solely in marketing. However, he accepted the position to lead the 800 corporate employees worldwide who fell under his management. He knew his first initiative was not to enhance the skills of these employees since they held degrees and were skilled at their jobs. Instead, he felt he needed to teach them the principles they lacked to effectively lead others.
Initially, Bismark compiled articles for his employees on the principles of leading others and published the articles on the company’s intranet. Later, it was suggested that he extend his reach throughout the entire network by using the company’s blog to publish his articles.

This collection was well received by the QI Group staff who appreciated it for the spiritual and inspirational directions it provided for life. The book provided its readers with a way to meditate and to find inspiration at times when they felt down and defeated. Lessons in the book can be absorbed one at a time and the readers are shown how these lessons impact the challenges they face in their daily life. The lessons also provided encouragement to live a better life.
In large part, Bismark’s dynamic corporate leadership style has its roots in his early upbringing as a monk living in an ashram in the Philippine mountains from the age of nine till he was seventeen. The principles he learned as an ashram monk became a large part of his personality, so he applied those principles to the corporate world and was able to create a unique position for himself in his business.
To Bismark, teamwork carries with it a great deal of strength in business. He believes that with a helping hand and some encouragement, individuals can excel at anything since they hold that latent power to do so within themselves. His desire is for everyone to grow with his company and with him. His employees sense the respect with which he treats them, and they see him as a simple and humble man whose core values have not been tainted by his success.
He has defined success not only in a material way but in a manner that encourages selfless service to others, internal peace and spiritual awakening. This can be seen in his many philanthropic associations and his frequent involvement with the Rhythm Foundation. Bismark has demonstrated that business and spirituality in the demanding, stressful world of corporate business, can indeed co-exist.
