So we reached the end of the process on The Apprentice 2011 here in the UK last night.
After 12 weeks of varied tasks Tom emerged as the person who was going to be Lord Sugar’s business partner.
As is always the case there were many learning points that arose.
Without doubt it is easy to sit and see what is working and what is not working from a distance. Being part and parcel of the process is a bit different. Personally I was delighted to see Tom emerge as the winner. For me he had a really unique combination of skills and qualities. He clearly is very creative and at the same time pays attention to the detail. We saw this time and time again during the process.
