    take the winner from last year, came across as very wet and a bit of a lightweight....but due to his education he had landed and subsequently
    gave up a job with swiss re before getting onto the apprentice. A lot of people earning big money in the city or as consultants in industry were taken on as graduate apprentices and have absolutely no previous experience.

    I don't think sur'allan is looking for someone with business intelligence - these days it's less about what you know of business operations, more about how you communicate and manage individuals. I know loads of brilliant people managers who aren't particularly good at the business operations side of things....but then they've got finance, HR and IT people to take care of most of the detail and groundwork in running a business day-to-day, leaving them to focus on they're strengths.

    He's not taking on a chief exec for viglen, whoever wins he's going to put in a relatively low risk position.
