We reached week 7 of The Apprentice last night. This week the teams were required to select two products from a choice of 12 and sell them into retailers.
The teams were led by Mona (Empire) and Lorraine (Ignite). Sir Alan made it crystal clear that he was expecting everybody to sell. On Ignite only 2 out 5 on the team sold and they generated £1,302 of sales. They we were convincingly beaten by Empire who clocked up £4,501 of sales.
So what did we learn this week?
You can watch The Apprentice every Wednesday evening at 9pm GMT or on the BBCiplayer.
