It’s grim up North for Apprentice fashionistas

first_img THERE are many sides to Lord Sugar. It isn’t all lounging in ermine and plugging his new autobiography – he’s also a dedicated follower of fashion. “London is one of the most fashionable cities in the world”, he informed his would-be Apprentices, quite a shock for those of us who assumed this devil wore M&S. Having gathered them to the London Fashion Retail Academy, their next challenge was selecting stock from new designers to flog in a shopping centre.Not everyone shared Lord Sugar’s enthusiasm. Stuart declared that clothes were “the most boring thing in the whole world”, quite a claim considering he lives on the Isle of Man.Luckily he was on the same team as Alex, who knows a few things about selling clothes, and was keen to share his wisdom: “Selling clothes is all about seduction”. Stick to what you know, eh? For the others, it wasn’t clothes that worried them but the rural backwater they’d have to sell them in: Manchester. “I’m not a big knowledge of Manchester”, confessed Jamie (who, incidentally “doesn’t do fashion”). Or grammar, apparently. He decided Mancunians were a few years behind London stylewise. “You go to clubs in Manchester and you still have to wear shoes”. No time for Jamie to expand on the benefits of the barefoot look: it was time to open the shops. The two teams had different ideas of what Manchester needed. Synergy kept it cheap and sparkly with Strictly knock-offs while Apollo went for £300 dresses made of recycled ties and suits. The sales techniques were a little lacklustre. “We’re up from LONDON” they trilled, though oddly the very mention of the capital wasn’t enough to get the tills ringing. Over to self-described retail guru Alex to show us how it’s done: “How about we pretend we’ve got Fearne Cotton and Alesha Dixon in the store?” he mused. Because we don’t, came the answer. Having failed to seduce, Paloma chose Alex for the boardroom and sales figures were ignored in favour of a discussion of just how infuriating he was. Extremely, thought Paloma. Not totally irritating, reasoned Nick. Perhaps feeling some pity Lord Sugar spared Alex; after a failed challenge and endless buck-passing, Lord Sugar finally lost his faith in Paloma.

Everton agrees early end to SportPesa sponsorship

first_imgMarketing & affiliates Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Online Gambling Regions: UK & Ireland English Premier League football club Everton has announced that it is to end its partnership with online betting operator SportPesa two years before the deal had been due to expire.SportPesa has served as the team’s main front-of-shirt sponsor since the start of the 2017-18 season, under a five-year agreement that had been set to run to the end of the 2021-22 campaign.However, Everton has now announced that the partnership will conclude at the end of the current 2019-20 season in May.Everton did not disclose the reasons behind the decision to end the partnership early, but it say it had been taken “following a comprehensive review by the club of its commercial strategy in line with its vision and future growth plans”.“This has been a difficult decision but one that allows us to best deliver on our commercial plan and to grasp the new opportunities now open to us,” an official Everton spokesperson said.“The club would like to thank SportPesa for all of the work that has been done together. Our partnership has seen our first team visit Africa on two occasions, as well as former players and club staff take part in numerous activations in the region.“This has allowed us to grow our own footprint in Africa and further strengthen our special relationship with the continent.”Everton added that it will appoint a new main partner ahead of the 2020/21 season.The decision comes following a difficult 2019 for SportPesa, which in September of last year announced that it to was to halt operations in its native Kenya over a dispute related to a tax on betting stakes.Shortly after this, SportPesa also announced it had made 453 Kenyan employees redundant after closing its operations in the country, calling for authorities in the country to repeal the new tax rate that caused it to withdraw from the market.However, in November 2019, the Kenyan Tax Appeals Tribunal ruled in favour of betting operators that challenged whether the controversial gambling tax should be levied on player winnings, rather than their original stakes.In its ruling, the court determined that the tax could only be applied to a player’s winnings at the end of every month, and that the KRA must collect revenue from customers, rather than directly from operators.The decision could pave the way for local operators such as SportPesa to return to the market.
