After Apollo proved last week that failure actually is an option, Lord Sugar decided to abort his original mission and set an alternative course, to stir up the mixture in week three’s bakery task.
Apollo, led by Surgeon, Shibby, began their journey smoothly by quickly agreeing on which items to sell to potential buyers. The team’s organised pitch gained them an order of a whopping 1,900 baked goods, cashing in on the losses of Synergy. The latter team’s indecisive project manager, Melissa, embarrassingly failed to secure a deal with the hotel management and kept the meeting waited for fifteen minutes as she muddled over maths. Luckily team member Alex stood up to the plate and saved the day in their second meeting, later securing a reasonable contract with a coffee shop.
Meanwhile Princess Paloma finally found her voice, much to Shibby’s dismay, as the pair quarrelled over sales figures in front of potential customers. That really does take the biscuit. Scales shifted dramatically back in the factories, as ex-marine Chris enforced military operation in the Synergy camp, while Recruitment Consultant Sandeesh did little else but complain over spilt milk in the Apollo kitchen. In the end it came down to Sandeesh, Paloma and Shibby battling it out in the boardroom. With no hands-on background in business, resulting in delivering an appalling sixteen out of one thousand items, Shibby was left without a baguette to stand on and was sent home. Keep your eyes peeled for next weeks innovative invention task.
