“Sometimes we don’t know what the future holds. Struggles, disappointments and failures are bound to happen. But what we do with them is what really matters.”

 

Nelson Yap, founder and CEO of the Benjamin Barker Group, was thrown into a failing business when his father passed away from cancer while he was in University. With no experience in business, he took over the burden of the family’s debt and turned it into a thriving business today. From his humble beginnings of a hole in the wall store in Telok Ayer Street and 2 employees, he has grown the brand to 5 countries with 15 retail stores and cafes. He now manages a team of over 80 and is passionate about helping others succeed.
