I believe you reap, what you sow in life! Personally, I could not have given anything more to The Apprentice process.
I gave it my very best! With this in-mind, I believe came across as someone who has great business acumen, is committed, enthusiastic, gregarious, comfortable in the spotlight, fun-loving and honest. My sales, negotiation and presentation skills have stood-out in a positive way.

I just wanted to be myself…and I really wanted to stay completely focused upon becoming Lord Sugar’s business partner. I wanted to win! I believe I was ‘myself’ throughout…as best as one can be when faced with the random, hyper-competitive and intense environment of The Apprentice. I believe that absolutely anything is possible. It’s all to do with how much you want it, and what you are prepared to put-in to achieve it!
I loved the process and I had many great highlights throughout. If I had to pick one, The Biscuit Task (Task 9)…making the ‘Special Star’ biscuits, giving the pitch to the biggest retailer (ASDA) and landing the single largest sales order in the history of The Apprentice…£1.6 Million!!!
It’s a nice way to leave, knowing you’ve reached the Final and acquitted yourself to the very best of your ability. It was fantastic that Lord Sugar acknowledged my contribution with regards to Sales i.e. with the ‘Greatest Salesman in the World’ certificate…WOW! This means so much coming from Lord Sugar!
Thank you to all the facebook-ers, the tweeters & the thousands of people who have supported me throughout! The reaction has been so positive and I am very grateful.
