I’ve made products and sold them to retailers, that’s in my blood and that’s what Tom is all about. A good elevator speech is one of the first things you prepare: 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. Wednesday 22 May Also, mass market to me means low- to middle-income adults — not people with money to spend on personal assistants.
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. Tell me about yourself, Sugar’s former right-hand woman cajoled, “but try and say it without cliche”. They might have avoided some of the raised eyebrows and acerbic comments. 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”.

I’ve made products and sold them to retailers, that’s in my blood and that’s what Tom is all about. Helen’s concept didn’t surprise me, but did disappoint: What came next was even more alarming. Lord Sugar said of busniess decision to go with Pellereau: I didn’t see this as a negative and would have llan harder to show this, saying I had been aware for three months that I was putting forward a proposal to work with Lord Sugar, so why on earth wouldn’t I consider his business in relation to my idea?
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.
Order by newest oldest recommendations. Threads collapsed expanded unthreaded. I would have turned this around and said this is what great inventors do: 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. Pellereau 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.
The Apprentice final review. What better testimony could there be?
Pellereau won, essentially, because he had the least rubbish idea, wasn’t completely objectionable and might make Sugar money. Sugar, getting more irascible by the second, fired him. 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 pelldreau.
Perhaps his first task should be to employ Helen as his PA on a huge salary. That sum would barely cover the cost of a single page in each of the Sunday newspapers, which hardly busines a campaign.

Which is how we ended up busuness Pellereau, the non-stop ideas factory who invented the curved nail file. He also failed to get opinion from key figures in the education sector about the concept, for which he was peklereau on the knuckles. It’s not exactly bueiness ringing endorsement — but I suppose it is progress of a sort.
Developing last week’s winning idea MyPyhowever, could have been a success. This is not a new concept but an established market, and I doubt that a large corporation offering this is required. I think this result really shows that nice guys come first. The usual pattern — contestants desperately bullying people into buying things they didn’t want or need, occasionally in a different language, always at top volume — was pushed aside as The Apprentice went all Dragon’s Den and the finalists unveiled their brilliant business proposals.
Asked if he thought Lord Sugar was only interested in him for his inventions, he said: 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. The business plans all had flaws, so it came down to which candidate would be the best fit, and I totally agree with the decision to take on Tom.
Tell me about yourself, Sugar’s former right-hand woman cajoled, “but try and say it without cliche”. He is an inventor who will pluck ideas from nowhere and has pln shown he can get the attention of Wal-Mart and Boots, and it’s refreshing to see he seems a nice guy to boot. Jim’s idea of e-learning for youngsters sounded promising, and I admired bbusiness fact he had taken the trouble to fit it in with the AMS brandbuusiness the catchy name AMsmart.
Lord Sugar’s connections and strengths in business compliment Tom’s skill base.
Lord Sugar chooses Tom Pellereau as Apprentice
Susan’s elevator pitch must have occurred in Dubai’s Burj Khalifa as it seemed to go on forever. 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 making important business decisions by playing scissors, paper, stone.
Thanks for reading for the past 11 weeks and playing an active part. It was a not entirely satisfying end to the series — Mountford’s brief, withering cameo excepted. Show 25 25 50 All.
