The series theme is ‘North America vs Europe’ and will see Adam – or ‘Razzle Dazzle’ as he’s affectionately known - battling against talented recruitment specialists by presenting a dazzling business plan.
Adam is well-suited to the programme, rising quickly through the ranks at ARM to become an expert in rail signalling and telecoms; working with one of the biggest infrastructure projects in Europe.
The brainchild of US producer, Chris LaVoie – a veteran of the human capital space – this fifth series challenges the participants to reengineer or reinvent the business side of talent. Structured in three rounds, all candidates must give a five minute pitch to bosses, advisors, and global counsellors, with only one candidate from each team going through to the second and final rounds.
Members of the exec panel include Karren Brady (The Apprentice, West Ham United FC), James Caan (Dragon’s Den, Hamilton Bradshaw) and Matthew Jeffery (SAP). The final two candidates will be questioned on their solutions and strategies by this prestigious line-up.
Filming starts July 20 in Nantes, with the last selection taking place at the Painted Hall in London on July 25. The show airs in January 2017, and the winner will feature on NBC News.
