So we reached the semi-final stage of The Apprentice last night.
With just five battling it out for a place in the final it was always going to be tough.
The task itself was pretty tough too. Set up a brand new fast food restaurant. With a bigger team this would have been hard but with teams of 2 and 3 it was even tougher.
In the end Tom and Helen romped to victory. So let’s look at the key learning points.
Personally I was delighted to see both Tom and Helen in the final through winning the task. Both have been consistent throughout. Helen recorded a record number of wins and Tom’s attention to detail and creativity were lost on many people earlier in the process. With Jim and Susan also through it should be an interesting finale when their individual business plans are put under scrutiny.
