Whatever happened to The Apprentice winners?: Tim Campbell

A short series revisiting the previous Apprentice winners.

Won: Season one (2005), beating Saira Khan after a final task in which they each had to put on an event on a Thames river-boat. He also holds the distinction of being the UK series’ first winning project manager after leading the men’s team to victory in a flower buying and selling task in the show’s opening episode.

Pre-Apprentice: Senior Planner within the Strategy and Service Development directorate of London Underground.

Post-Apprentice: Joined Amstrad, launching the Integra anti-wrinkle device in Argos and Harrods, and becoming Project Director of Amstrad’s new Health & Beauty division. He stayed on after his original 12-month contract ended, but left Amstrad in March 2007.

Post-Sugar: Campbell founded the Bright Ideas Trust, a charity which aims to provide financial backing to help young entrepreneurs aged 16-30 turn ideas into businesses. He remains the organisation’s CEO. Earlier this year, Mayor of London Boris Johnson appointed him as his Ambassador for Training and Enterprise, a voluntary role which will focus on increasing the number of apprentices across London, and developing and becoming involved in new training opportunities and setting up new businesses.
