(Oct 2): As far as business strategies go, Robert Yap has an unusual mantra: Keep it sexy.

It has been nearly four decades since Yap took over his father’s transportation business and transformed it into the technology-centric logistics company YCH Group. But the 64-year-old executive chairman still has a keen appetite for innovation. Dressed in an electric-blue striped shirt, with leopard-print collar and cuffs, Yap muses on the need for businesses to stay youthful and agile.

“Product cycles are getting shorter, and we need to keep innovating as we go. There is no standard formula for a business. You just have to be adaptable and gutsy,” he says. And the winners of this year’s EY Entrepreneur Of The Year (EOY) awards offer great examples of how to build a sexy business.
