No lessons learnt for Dean not to be the big I am, as the first chance he gets to be the big I am again he snatches with both hands making his colleagues feel like spare parts - but
this is what happens when you give the wrong person the wrong role which then had a lasting negative impact throughout week 2's task!
Keena feeling confident he knew Deans skill set made him Sub Team Leader and it was the sub team who were responsible
for meeting the corporate client to agree how many ice lollies she wanted along with the price and to come away with the knowedge and understanding of what they needed to do to make her product bespoke and meet the needs of her business.
On the journey to the client Dean allocates different parts of the upcoming pitch to both Souleyman and Ryan Mark only to take them away just as quick after making an excutive decision to go solo and do everything
himself. A bold move! One and only one normallly executed successfully by experienced individuals who know exactly what to do to get the best from the situation and client. Instead we get to witness Dean and his inexperienced and at
times embarrassing approach leaving us all hot under the collar predicting what the outcome would be!
When it came to figures one had to wonder how Dean has managed to launch
and keep his business afloat! 75 lollies were confirmed for £3.30. But seeing an opportunity to gain a larger order Dean suggest doing 150 at £3.85 per lolly. Really, Really Dean - Awkward! He then offers her the same price for 90 as he suggested if she took 150 lollies. The client who must have wanted to get as far away as possible and run to the hills from both the meeting and such an unprofessional chancer agrees bringing
the whole sorry state to an end.
But none of the important basic details were discussed
which again made Dean look worse than the finished product he had helped to produce. At every opportunity he tried to remove his contribution further and further away from having any responsibilty deflecting decisions onto others and omitting responsibility.
Ryan Mark accused him of being one big u turn, Souleyman accused him of making both him and Ryan Mark silent partners, Riyonn accused him of just bringing back a flavour with disappearing
glitter instead of a bespoked product, Thomas accused him of not arranging the delivery time with the client and even Keena realised the dynamics of the sub group werent right - but it was too late - maybe he didnt know Deans skill set as well as he thought.
Needless to say Dean found himself once again in the boardroom with Keena and Riyonn and it was only as Keena had bigged himself up even more than Dean that he was the one to get fired!
Perhaps Dean will learn this additional lesson and by his mistakes?
