What came next was even more alarming. What better testimony could there be? I believe he could be a potential goldmine for Lord Sugar, although he needs reining in. I am sure, given a more modest outlook and a mature business mind behind her, this idea could have legs — after all she has shown success on a small scale already. Many thought the winner would be super-smart Helen Milligan, the woman who has won practically every task, made proper money in the process and is so organised she quite possibly lives inside a flow chart.
Lord Sugar’s connections and strengths in business compliment Tom’s skill base. Also, mass market to me means low- to middle-income adults — not people with money to spend on personal assistants. The Apprentice’s Nick Hewer talks money. Threads collapsed expanded unthreaded. Order by newest oldest recommendations. Loading comments… Trouble loading? Her idea, already tested, was an organic skin care range.
Sugar, getting more irascible by the second, fired him. That sum would barely cover the cost of a single page in each of the Sunday newspapers, which hardly constitutes a campaign.
Helen is undoubtedly highly employable and would have probably won the old style Apprentice. The geeky year-old entrepreneur was handed the prize of a partnership with the business guru despite being on the losing side a record eight times during the series. New Countdown host Nick Hewer talks money.
It’s not exactly a ringing endorsement — but I suppose it is progress of a sort. Asked if he thought Lord Sugar was only interested in him for his inventions, he said: Also, mass market to me means low- to middle-income adults — not people with money to spend on personal assistants.
Pellereau has previously invented a curved nail file which he sold to major UK and US retailers and now he is to launch a range of his other inventions with the tycoon’s help.
A good business plan should cover many pplan prior to entering this process the candidates would have done well to visit Business Links. He was rightly criticised for implying “not for profit” given the programme’s focus — however, who says that schools have to pay?
‘Nice guy’ Tom hired by Lord Sugar
With an astonishing run of task failures behind him, inventor Tom Pellereau won through on the final of BBC1’s reality show The Apprentice on Sunday night.
Despite firing her, Sugar did bizarrely reveal that he was keen to break into the businezs market. Objection handling is regularly part of an interview, and Tom was criticised by a couple of the panel for flitting from one bbusiness to another, failing to see things through. I’ve made products and sold them to retailers, that’s in my blood and that’s what Tom is all about.
This is not a new concept but an established market, and I doubt that a large corporation offering this is required. However, he had done some work within schools and on employability skills in his spare time and should have emphasised this, selling the results positively. He holds the record for being the worst performing winner of The Apprentice after being on the losing team for eight of the weekly tasks throughout the series, but he earned a reputation among his rivals as “a nice guy”.

He is an inventor who will pluck ideas from nowhere and has already shown he can get the attention of Wal-Mart and Boots, and it’s refreshing to see he seems a nice guy to boot. After 12 weeks of bravado, bragging and blagging, rival Jedi Jim Eastwood’s fate was sealed with just one glance of utter despair from the marvellous Margaret Mountford.
As a result, the show’s least ruthless contestant ever has triumphed. Interview with Apprentice winner Tom Pellereau. I think this result really shows that nice guys come first.
Susan Ma, who has spent the last three months whinging “that’s not fair” at teammates in a particularly grating tone, proved surprisingly impressive. Lord Sugar apparently was not put off by Pellereau’s ideas such as the “emergency biscuit” EmerCrunchy; or by the year-old’s shifty Action Man eyes; or his new pupil’s method of pfllereau important business decisions by playing scissors, paper, stone.

This year’s twist in the show’s format ultimately helped Pellereau: Eastwood presented his plan for investment in an “e-learning service” for schools, while Ma was aiming to further her organic skincare company and Milligan pitched her idea of a national concierge service. Her idea, already tested, was an organic skin care range. Perhaps the commercial organisations that end up benefitting could partly fund the idea.
She has her own skincare company, as viewers will have gathered from the 3, mentions per episode, and a business plan that showed potential. It was a not entirely satisfying end to the series — Mountford’s brief, withering cameo excepted.

What better testimony could there be? I think this result really shows that nice guys come first. Lord Sugar and I will take a break and look through all the products and we’ll really spend some time to devise the business plan. Lord Sugar said of his decision to go with Pellereau:
