Called to Guildhall in the City of London, the candidates are given their latest task: putting on a corporate away day for two major clients. With a budget of 5,000 pounds, they must put on a team building event for a day, but the fun and games start early when one team spends so much time thinking through themes that they are late to meet their client. The teams set off in search of food and activities, but by mid-afternoon panic sets in for some as they realise they don't have enough to fill the day, and they wrestle with whether to make a last minute booking that could prove risky.
The next day, the teams must put on their events; one decides on an army theme, but they come under fire when the rain sets in. The others settle on back to school, but will their pricey activities get top marks? To win, teams must balance profit with customer satisfaction - but in the boardroom there are surprises in store and one unhappy customer, as Lord Sugar points the finger at someone and tells them 'You're fired!'.
