After Dinner & Event Speaker (in association with SpeakOut)
Michelle Dewberry won the second series of BBC2s The Apprentice.
Michelle took on her new role with Sir Alan's company Armstrad with the task of setting up a new business venture called Xenon Green where she was to support companies, schools, governments etc to conform to the WEEE (Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment) regulations. It was to be a new world company, specialising in the safe disposal of computer systems and associated hardware.
Living in London Michelle does her best to disguise the accent that would give away her Hull roots.
She used to be a check-out girl but went on to manage global projects and at the tender age of 24, Michelle embarked on a successful city career as a high-earning freelance consultant.
She says Im passionate, Im hard working, Im motivated, Im focused and Im very, very driven.
Michele is a very impressive individual. Despite being the youngest of The Apprentice candidates in that series, she was able to hold her own in tricky situations and bring others around to her way of thinking with very little persuasion. Michelle is a highly regarded programme manager, with around eight years experience in the Telecoms sector. The last two of which, she was independently employed. She has successfully delivered multiple projects and programmes for numerous major PLCs.
She understands what it means to have integrity and is always honest with her approach. More importantly, if you ask Michelle to deliver something you can trust that it will be done.
Michelle Dewberry was previously recruited by a leading EU telecoms provider as a Programme Manager working in their Business Transformation division. Her role was to scope and manage the end to end transition of core elements of their technology division from the UK to a newly established offshore facility, located in India. Key elements of the programme were
...End-to-end process re-engineering
...Management of all related workstreams i.e legal, HR, training etc.
This offshore programme saved the company millions of pounds in operating costs and increased productivity significantly. Michelle left her career as an independent Programme Manager to pursue The Apprentice but remains highly respected by her previous employers and clients.
Michelle is the second successful candidate after Tim Campbell was hired in the first series. Tim Campbell continued to work for Amstrad after fulfilling his initial year-long contract with the company as The Apprentice winner. He had to head up a new health and beauty division and was tasked with the re-launch of an electronic anti-wrinkle device. Apart from working for Sir Alan, Tim has been in much demand as a mentor, giving motivational talks to school children. He says he didn't just become The Apprentice, but won a whole new life.
