Former Apprentice candidate weighs in with a weekly verdict on the process, plus his own tips for success with Lord Sugar.
“Well this week’s Apprentice was all about negotiation, and one of the items on the “treasure hunt task” was actually horse manure – which some of the candidates seemed to be speaking!
Here are my top tips for negotiation,
- Make it clear you have cash and want to buy.
- Let the seller tell you the start price - this makes them think they are leading the negotiation.
- Don’t be scared of being cheeky, the worst thing that can happen is a NO!
Jenny went home and to be fair she deserved to, for my money she didn’t contribute enough to the task.”
