Does 'The Apprentice' Need to Learn Some New Skills?

To get ahead and be successful, there is no doubt that you have to be a strong and confident leader with clear idea about what you want and how you're going to get it. To remain successful, however, the narcissism that many of them seem so proud of will need to take a back seat to make way for more rational, big-picture thinking.

... Just Like Everybody Else

So I hear that one of this season's celebrity trends is 'Normcore'. This fascinating departure from glamour is to be 'deliberately ordinary' in how you present yourself. You might have nondescript, untidy hair and possibly a rather anonymous pair of glasses.

We had to take this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so we did. And six months later we drove down to London to pitch our make-up business to the Apprentices. They were looking for products they could take, sell and make the most money on.

Luisa Zissman, Aspiring Businesswoman?

We are lucky as women that in this day and age it isn't as hard as it used to be to make a strong stand in business and high posts... With regards to Luisa, some would say that she uses the title of businesswoman to be taken seriously but use still her sexuality to become popular. Is this really the right way to go?

Hull the 'City of Culture', I'm Very Proud to Call You Home

Here's the thing... most people who scoff at Hull, have never even been. And I guess that's the way life works, if a bandwagon rumbles past us, we sometimes can't help but jump on it. If someone, or some place strives, we can't seem to wait to knock them.

Luisa Zissman: Staying on Top

For those of you unfamiliar with the name Luisa Zissman, you are unfamiliar with the current British celebrity hierarchy. Zissman has entered the party with immediate B/C list status. Her role as runner up on The Apprentice has effectively launched her 'it' girl status. Hardly a day passes without an update on her life by the British tabloids. And I for one- am pleased.

Aside from their ability to hot-foot it around London in skyscraper heels, the ladies of this year's BBC Apprentice have me fascinated as they glamorously buck the trend for UK female entrepreneurs.

The Best Investment a Business Can Make - The Next Generation

Karren Brady | Posted 13.07.2013 | UK Universities & Education
Karren Brady

I would argue that too many businesses are reluctant to take the risk on a young person without any experience. Turned on its head, that small risk could actually be a life-changing opportunity to set a young person on course for a truly bright future. So, I think every business needs to consider whether they are doing enough to support young people in their communities to first gain work experience, and then to move into employment. We cannot expect schools or parents alone to support a young person into work. In my view, businesses are a vital part of the equation.

I Hate People On The Apprentice

Sammy Sultan | Posted 09.07.2013 | UK Entertainment
Sammy Sultan

As early as midway through the first episode we gain an appreciation of whom we are going to collectively despise. It is normally the irritating cretin who takes it upon him/herself to come up with a team name such as 'oblivion' or 'evolve.' Why they feel compelled to come up with such lame post-apocalyptic names is beyond me.

TV: The Apprentice

I like the opening five minutes of The Apprentice the best I think. Mainly because of the contestants' VTs; which this year contained some very bold and arousing statements. "I am a great of my generation. I take inspiration from Napoleon," so says a small man wearing ladies sunglasses.

I half-watched The Apprentice last night while going through the email backlog - both experiences made slightly more bearable by the other. But my attention was suddenly caught by a Maths Problem.

The Debasement of a Once Proud Institution

It saddens me to see the cynical degradation of the proud institution that is the 'apprenticeship' by big business, not for the betterment of young workers, but to boost their bottom lines.
