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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
