The geeky year-old entrepreneur was handed the prize of a partnership with the business guru despite being on the losing side a record eight times during the series. Lord Sugar said of his decision to go with Pellereau: Pellereau has previously invented a curved nail file which he sold to major UK and US retailers and now he is to launch a range of his other inventions with the tycoon’s help. What came next was even more alarming. Threads collapsed expanded unthreaded.
Milligan, who works in management at Greggs, produced an innovative new scheme for a bakery that sold “homemade cakes and bread”. I believe he could be a potential goldmine for Lord Sugar, although he needs reining in. Greggs’ PR department might be wanting a word. Thanks for reading for the past 11 weeks and playing an active part. A good business plan should cover many areas; prior to entering this process the candidates would have done well to visit Business Links.
Lord Sugar chooses Tom Pellereau as Apprentice – BBC News
Wednesday 22 May What better testimony pellreau there be? He is an inventor who will pluck ideas from nowhere and has already shown he can get the attention of Wal-Mart and Boots, and it’s refreshing to see he seems a nice guy to boot. New Countdown host Nick Hewer talks money.
With Tom you are taking on the inventor and not one idea. Greggs’ PR department might be wanting a word.
Susan Ma, who has spent the last three months whinging “that’s not fair” at teammates in a particularly grating tone, proved surprisingly impressive. Lord Sugar apparently was not put off by Pellereau’s ideas such as the “emergency biscuit” EmerCrunchy; or by the year-old’s shifty Action Man eyes; or his new pupil’s method of making important business decisions by playing scissors, paper, stone.
I didn’t see this as a negative and would have fought harder to show this, saying I had been budiness for three months that I was putting forward a proposal to work with Lord Sugar, so why on earth wouldn’t I consider his business in relation to my idea? Eastwood’s grand idea was to teach schoolchildren employability skills. So it’s a plam of watch this space – but there will definitely be some very exciting products coming shortly.
Pellereau won, essentially, because he had the least rubbish idea, wasn’t completely objectionable and might make Sugar money. Developing last week’s winning idea MyPyhowever, could have been a success.

The Apprentice: Tom takes his seat at the top table
Despite firing her, Sugar did bizarrely reveal that he was keen to break into the cosmetics market. Perhaps the commercial organisations that end up benefitting could partly fund the idea.
Many thought the winner would be businesw Helen Milligan, the woman who has won practically every task, made proper money in the process and is so organised she quite possibly lives inside a flow chart. Milligan’s grand idea was the kind of concierge service pln by cash-rich, time-poor people who need to secure a table at the best restaurant regardless of cost, but this one is aimed at cash-poor, time-poor people who need to do the grocery shopping based largely on special offers.

Pllan made products and sold them to retailers, that’s in my blood and that’s what Tom is all about. What came next was even more alarming. Pellereau admitted he was surprised by his triumph, but his confidence grew when he heard what Milligan – plann food industry executive – was proposing. This from a man who has shown himself to be devious, slippery, back-stabbing and unconcerned with such things as market research.
Objection handling is regularly part of an interview, and Tom was criticised by a couple of the panel for flitting from one product to another, failing to see things through. Pellereau has previously invented a curved nail file which he sold to major UK and US retailers and now he is to launch a range of his other inventions with the tycoon’s help. As a result, the show’s least ruthless contestant ever has triumphed.
I would have turned this around and said this is what great inventors do: Milligan, who works in management at Greggs, produced an innovative new scheme for a bakery that sold “homemade cakes and bread”.
Perhaps his first task should be to employ Helen as his PA on a huge salary. Lord Sugar and I will take a break and look through all the products and we’ll really spend some time to devise the business plan.
This year’s twist in the show’s format ultimately helped Pellereau: Eastwood presented his plan for investment in an “e-learning service” for schools, while Ma was aiming to further busniess organic skincare company and Milligan pitched her idea of a national concierge service.
