Importance of Good Communication in Group Tasks

After speaking with my friends and colleagues I am to show how the Project Management task on the video clips is relevant to good communication skills to children and young people in Rugby.

Harry Maxwell was the first student from a school in Rugby to successfully be accepted onto the BBC Young Apprentice with Lord Alan Sugar.  Lord Sugar was offering a prize of £25,000 to the most successful candidate.  For further information on Harry open the Young Apprentice Link.

Harry was sixteen years old (16) when he applied for the place.  He represented Rugby, Warwickshire.

From the video clips:-
Team Cool Runnings - Jacob (10), Coby (10), and Devante (11 and Team Leader)
Team Illusion - Xavier (10 and Team Leader), Immogen (14) and Tiana (9)
Team RTC - Rhianna (9), Tristen (13 and Team Leader) and Charlie (15)

You can notice that these students are not that much younger than Harry Maxwell so if they keep practicing they too could get a chance to represent Rugby and try and win £25,000 towards their own business!  Harry had good communication skills. Watch the video below.

I was extremely pleased with all their efforts so please join me in congratulating these talented children and young people!  Well done students and keep up your hard work.

Additionally watch the video below of the Young Apprentice team leaders - Lewis Roman (16) and ; Gbemi Okunlola (16) in the BBC series and observe how well they communicated their ideas in their pitches to the retailers - times 9min.15secs and 10min.15secs are their first pitches.
