The Apprentice: Tom Pellereau Interview
Tom Pellereau was a worthy winner. �I couldn’t help spotting a great interview with Tom in today’s online Daily Telegraph. If you have followed the show and, like me, admired Tom’s performance, you will enjoy the interview with Chris Harvey. �If you did not think much of Tom, then maybe this will start to change […]
Creativity in The Apprentice
A lot of Apprentice tasks require a considerable degree of creativity. It has always been thus for as long as I have been watching, and the past two weeks of series eight have both put it at the heart of the tasks. I expect many more like this, because this series, like the last, is […]
Young Apprentice 2011–5: A Tale of Two Drivers
This week�s task was dominated by the personalities of the two team leaders � selected by Lord Sugar, who clearly had a shrewd idea what would happen. Let�s however start with a few raw details about the task itself. The teams had to create a brand and a TV advert for an antiperspirant/deodorant targeted at […]
Young Apprentice 2011–3: Decision Making and Personal Animus
This week�s episode saw the teams separated by the smallest of margins (less than 3% of profit).� It also saw the final phases of the boardroom play out exactly as I was expecting.� My notes were constantly a few minutes ahead and I concur 100% with Lord Sugar�s assessments this evening � which I don�t […]

The Apprentice Final: A Worthy Winner
After 13 episodes (11 tasks, plus two “specials”), the Final Four candidates at last got a chance to present their business ideas, and meet Lord Sugar’s interviewers. I don’t know about you, but it was a tense time on the Clayton sofa. �I expect there are 9 million or more opinions about the outcome and […]
The Apprentice 13: How to get Hired
Last night, Dara O’Briain hosted a humorous look at what candidates need to do to get hired. �But as with all good humour, it was funny, because it was true. Over the course of the series, I have been deriving lessons from the tasks, and Dara O’Briain drew out ten rules. I want to compare […]
The Apprentice 12: In Defence of the Candidates
It is fashionable to slate the candidates in The Apprentice for their failings and weaknesses. �And they certainly do all have them, but I do recall reading in a book somewhere: “Let those without sin cast the first stone” So rather than bitch about the lack of general knowledge and�naivete�of the candidates, or their lack […]
The Apprentice 11: The Final Five
Last night’s show looked at the backgrounds of the final five candidates. Whilst I am as interested as anyone, I do not want to comment on how I perceive the candidates personally, outside the four walls of my own home. Instead, I want to take the opportunity to reflect on the chances each of them […]
The Apprentice 10: A Matter of Strategy
In tonight’s episode, the last six was whittled down to the final five, and I stop being even handed and start expressing an opinion about the candidates.
