The BBC Apprentice series returns to our screens this year, kicking off on March 21th.
Meet Tom Gearing from London, one of this year’s Apprentice candidates who will compete for the £250,000 investment fund from Lord Sugar and to become Lord Sugar’s business partner.
Name: Tom Gearing
Occupation: Director of a Fine Wine Investment Company
Tom feels his biggest strength is his self-assurance but says that he can sometimes be over-confident. He also admits he isn’t great at handling early morning starts.
Tom enjoys going to music events and West Ham football matches in his spare time and also plays golf, tennis and football for a Sunday League team.
Tom’s passions are fine dining and wine and he also loves travelling around the world. He is inspired by Candy & Candy and wishes he was the brains behind ASOS.
He says: “I’m confident, charismatic and some people say I’m quite good looking, so that adds to the bill.”
