Episode 7: Heading North

This week the candidates are sent up North. The teams have to pick two unique products, then break the new products into the competitive retail market in the North West of England.

In these challenging times, winning orders is no easy business. Sir Alan fixes the teams up with two appointments and on day two they have to cold call and hard sell. The candidates have no time to waste. However one team takes their eyes off the task.

Sir Alan gives each candidate an order book so no one can slip through the net.
