Stuart Baggs headed for car crash?

Stuart Baggs test drives a race car while the rest of his team are at work

Aspiring Apprentice Stuart Baggs appears to be heading for a car crash this week after Lord Sugar appoints him project manager and he quickly abandons his team to go motor-racing.

The cocky 21-year-old telecoms entrepreneur, the youngest of this year's candidates, is tasked to lead Team Apollo in creating a big-screen themed 'virtual experience' to sell to the public, and promptly decides on a racing car theme aimed at adults.

After pushing the idea through despite his team's reservations, Stuart heads to the track to film footage for the experience, and leaves everyone else to do all the work while he enjoys a test drive.

Furious team mate Joanna Riley seethes: "Is he taking the p**s?"

And Stuart riles his team further when he changes his mind at the last minute and decides they should target children with their racing experience, to be sold from a stand at Westfield shopping centre in west London.

When mother Joanna sees the toy cars Stuart has in mind, she fumes: "You want someone to pay £15 to put their child on this? And you think this would be a good memory to have? Seriously, let's just lay all our cards on the table. If you look at it from a logical point of view - come on, we're not stupid!"

Lord Sugar's advisor Nick Hewer observes: "Stuart's leadership style leaves me trembling with irritation. Who does he think he is?"

Meanwhile, after frequently being accused of not pulling her weight, Sandeesh Samra is appointed project manager of Synergy, who find themselves struggling after they open their stall 50 minutes late, as Sandeesh fails to control disputes among her team.

When others are at the helm, progress grinds to a halt. People deliberate endlessly over simple matters. Instead of putting pressure on the person in charge, make a strategic retreat. If you act like you don't care about the outcome of a situation, they won't be paralysed with uncertainty. You have a tendency to make people nervous.More
