The Apprentice 2016 – week 2

Lord Sugar met the candidates at the Istituto Marangoni which is an Italian school of fashion and design with campuses in Milan, Paris, Shanghai and London, where the meeting was held.
It was an old textile factory and mannequins moved overhead on moving gantries.
 
 
Lord Sugar said that at the end of the task one of them might be “hung out to dry” a bit like the mannequins above!

Well it's back, another set of “business brains” about to get their egos popped by Alan Sugar.

The Apprentice 2015 (Show 9)

The candidates receive boxes of safety jackets and helmets at the house and are told to meet Lord Sugar at the top of the Southbank tower. On the way, Selina hopes that the teams remain the same. Richard says he can't see Charleine saying that she'd really like him to come back and Selina says the same for herself!

Lord Sugar says they've sold many things but now for the most expensive of all, property. He has found two developers who are about to launch some properties and the teams are to vie to represent and sell them.
The winners are the ones with the most commission.

 
Oh dear, to even up the teams Selina is sent over to Versatile and back to Charleine!

The Apprentice 2015 (Show 8)

Lord Sugar asks the candidates to meet him at the Museum of Childhood.
Lord Sugar has two clients who want a birthday party for their pre-teen. The teams must arrange a party for them and the parents can choose to deduct money for anything they are unhappy with.

 
 


As Selina does event planning for a living, Lord Sugar appoints her project manager of Connexus. He also says that although Gary was project manager of Versatile on the last task, he hears that Gary's business plan is to do with event planning and therefore suggests that he take command of Versatile again for this task.
