The Apprentice 2010 – Series 6

May 10th, 2010 » Comments (0)

Right, the general election is now out of the way. Well sort off, hung parliament and the likelihood of another general election within the coming 12 months excepted. Which should give the BBC the opportunity to squeeze in the 2010 series of The Apprentice and it’s spin off The Junior Apprentice without having to worry […]

Idea Screening

July 24th, 2009 » Comments (0)

As we all work to develop offers that will help us to grow our businesses, it is easy to spend too much time investigating ideas that have a lower than acceptable probability of providing a return on our time and money. In large organisations and in the decision making processes of potential business investors, there […]



Yasmina Wins The Apprentice 2009!

June 9th, 2009 » Comments (2)

Another series of The Apprentice is over and this year’s winner is Yasmina Siadatan. Personally I was surprised that Sir Alan Sugar picked her – I really didn’t think he’d go for someone who is already running their own business. His henchmen didn’t seem too keen on her either during the interview task. So now […]

This week the candidates headed up North, inflicting their charms on Manchester and Liverpool. Their task, to select two products which they would then sell to retailers in and around Manchester and Liverpool, Sir Alan Sugar having lined them up two appointments (a DIY store and a fashionable furniture shop)  to get them started. If […]

April 30th, 2009 » Comments (0)

This week saw the remaining candidates wandering the streets of London trying to sell a variety of items ranging from a vintage pair of shoes to a first edition book and a skeleton. It was a fairly dull episode this week as there wasn’t an awful lot of "business" content (but then again there seems […]



The Apprentice 2009 (UK) – Episode 5

April 23rd, 2009 » Comments (2)

This week The Apprentice 2009 candidates were tasked with creating a marketing campaign for a new breakfast cereal. The campaign should include a character and they have to produce a box and TV advert. Sounds reasonable, so off they all ran to do some market research. Except they didn’t, they wandered off to brainstorm. In […]



The Apprentice 2009 (UK) – Episode 4

April 16th, 2009 » Comments (4)

This instalment of The Apprentice saw the candidates tasked with making two new natural beauty products, which they’d spend the second day of the task selling to the public in central London. In theory it’s an easy task as the profit margins (as Sir Alan Sugar reminds them) on beauty products are very high – […]
