I hope the real business world is nothing like 'The Apprentice'. My friend Alice who is a denizen of many a heated boardroom, says it's not and she should know. The series seemed to glorify the art of knowing nothing about a something, but selling the something anyway. This was typified by the winner, Lee McQueen, who's wriggling about his fictional CV was masterful.
Here's Lee's technique on finally being called on his fictional University education.
- "A CV is a conversational tool."
- "A CV is about a bullet point format".
- On his degree education: "As far as I am aware it was two years, yes"
Finally, when faced with the reality, that he dropped out after four months: "I am disappointed in myself for doing that".
There's a future in politics for him if Sir Alan's outfit doesn't work out.
