A newly established international business consulting and executive coaching company was recognized for its innovative strategies, and the increase in its business performances to thrice in the span of a year.

With Ms. Esther Yap’s exceptional leadership and innovative strategies, the emerging international business consulting and executive coaching company, Stellar SparX International Sdn Bhd (SSI), was able to innovate its management consulting and people development strategies. It took its international marketing efforts to the next level, drove creative talent management and employee engagement initiatives, and grew its human capital resources by threefold in the span of a year during the pandemic. With this, it was recognised with the Innovator of the Year – Training and Development trophy at the recently concluded Malaysia Management Excellence Awards 2021, presented by Singapore Business Review

The inaugural awards programme lauds the country’s most outstanding and innovative business leaders, whose notable new projects and innovations have brought tangible gains to the success of their businesses and clients. It also recognises outstanding management strategies and human capital initiatives that boost business performances and employees’ motivation at work.

Ms. Yap’s business mentor, #1 New York Times bestselling author, leadership expert and coach to Fortune 500 companies globally, Dr John C. Maxwell said that “the single biggest way to impact an organisation is to focus on leadership development. There is almost no limit to the potential of an organisation that recruits good people, raises them up as leaders and continually develops them.” “I am so proud of Esther Yap’s achievement and extremely delighted to see her continuous effort in empowering businesses and transforming lives” Mr Chris Robinson, Executive Vice President of The John Maxwell Team added. Ms. Yap is also currently serving as a Leadership Consultant, Trainer and Coach as well as an Independent Executive Director of The John Maxwell Team in Malaysia. 

Human capital management and people development initiatives are often seen by organisations as a high-cost centre with a slow return process. However, Ms. Yap has innovated and implemented cost-effective and highly productive international management consulting and business coaching solutions, which not only gained recognition from some of its high-profile clients but also helped to increase its business performance and elevate its brand. “I have not seen any more innovative solution than this in the market that can and will transform a whole new generation of leaderpreneurs in the region,” said Mr Stuart Patton, Director of Octopus.

The innovative solutions have been recognised and implemented across various industries that include some of the world’s leading brands and companies ranging from government and non-government organisations, business & professional services, education, financial institutions, property development, ICT, green technology to furniture and building materials industry suppliers, manufacturing companies and others.

Ms. Yap brought innovative marketing efforts to the next level by establishing strategic collaboration with another globally recognised business coaching certification provider that is certified by the Education Alliance Finland from Europe. This European Business Strategy solution aims to add value to Small Medium Enterprise (SME) businesses and start-up entrepreneurs within the South East Asia region. This solution will also enable Multinational (MNC) companies to develop their leaders, high-potential executives, managers, and even individual contributors.  

Whilst SSI continues to serve the corporate leaders and business entrepreneurs in the region, it has also served and will continue to serve its local community to meet the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) #1, #4, #5, and #10. One of SSI’s recent innovative solutions for the community – The “Future CEO” program that is co-designed and led by Ms. Yap, is partially adopted from The Maxwell Method of Leadership and the Octopus Business Strategy Solution. SSI aims to launch a “100CEOs” campaign to demonstrate its continuous effort and commitment in empowering a community of young leaders, and women entrepreneurs in the country over the next year.

Commenting on the award, Ms. Yap says “We are immensely proud to have won this award as this recognises who we are and what we do, endorses the methodology and approach we use as a highly innovative international business consulting and executive coaching firm that brings value to the companies we work with within the region. I am extremely proud of our people who have made this happen together and beyond grateful to all our business mentors, associates, and clients who have believed in us and supported us in this journey”. “We hope to move to the next phase of our growth which is to build an ecosystem and community of high performing talents, leaders, intra-entrepreneurs for local businesses and international corporations moving forward” she added.
