Last week, we had a surprise where Joel has been transferred to Team Momentum. This week, we have another surprise. Team momentum with only Carmen and Keng Teck left, will be able to choose one terminated team member back into the challenge. Lucky for Keng Teck as he is not in good terms with Carmen since the last 2 episodes. Now let us observe what actually happens in this episode.
To introduce and to sell as many units of INTEL Core 2 Duo Processor in a designated retail outlet at Plaza Low Yat , Kuala Lumpur. The Team with highest number /units of INTEL Core 2 Duo Wins the task.
Observation : Team Dynamic
Team Dynamic was given a chance to choose a terminated team member back. Anrie whom has been terminated in the 3rd task (Burger King) was brought back to the challenge. Why Anrie? Have they made the right choice? Wouldn't it be wiser to choose an ex Team Dynamic ie Angeline?
In the brainstorming session, Anrie being a new member has contributed a lot of ideas while Keng Teck still as himself giving a lot of deep thoughts. Carmen again was relying very much on her team members idea.
Team Dynamic found out that ThunderMatch was going to organise their opening ceremony. Yahoo! much can be capitlaised on espeically the on-going promotion to pull the crowd in. Their key ideas were going around Low Yat to stick core 2 duo stickers on shoppers, a throw and win game that relates to core 2 duo, offer incentive to staff to sell as much as possible, basic deco and video on Intel Core 2 Duo. Have they done enough? Have they done it well? Was it effective? Did they win beccause of the opneing ceremony or is their effort to bring in higher sales?
Team Dynamic won the challenge but was called back to the boardroom as Peter thinks that they have done a bad job. Among issues brought up were lack of branding, too dependent on the retailer, the game was unpresentable and not much education on Intel core 2 duo. Both Anrie and Carmen pointed at Keng Teck as the one should be eliminated due to the game. Keng Teck fought back with justification that he contributed a lot if not the most and have gone the extra mile to promote Intel core 2 duo and sell some units as well. When asked who should be terminated, Keng Teck maintained that no one should be. Lucky for him, Peter spared all of them with a firm warning! Should anyone of them be terminated? who should be? Is it fair for the 2 girls to get Keng Teck out?
Observation : Team Momentum
Joel got his chance to be a team leader in Team Momentum. They might have thought that they had an advantage but Team Dynamic got themselves antoher creative Team member , Anrie. In addition to that, Team momentum especially Joel was very angry and things that the task given was not fair as Team Dynamic has an advantage given that the retailer has an opening ceremony with many promotions going on despite that it is on the 4th floor. Team momentum got their ALL IT HYPERMART on the 3rd floor. So do you think that it is an unfair task?
In the brainstorming session, Joel was trying very hard to dig into Ivan's mind for creative sales strategy. however not much was contributed. Surprisingly, Ernie was very quiet in this task. Wonder why? Ohh yes, Joel suggested promoters, where are the promoters?
Things weren't going so well when they meet the retailer. Joel found that Ivan was little bit pushy and using the wrong way to communicate. Really? missed that part actually! Waht exactly happen? anyone can share? Maybe Ivan himself can explain!
On task day, Team momentum was all charged up! Ernie again with the microphone drawing crowd (reminds me of The Big Raja, Burger King task). Ivan and Joel was trying to sell. Some of their strategies were low price packages, buy now and get rebate of RM 50, buntings to highlight the event and were they educating customers on Intel Core 2 duo?
Boon Yong caught Ivan in action during his sales. He was having problem serving a customer. But he is supposed to be the King of Sales! So what happen here?
In the boardroom, it was an easy decision for Boon Yong. Joel again came out with creative way in promoting sales, Ernie was the most hardworking one and of course maximising his LOUD voice. Who's left? Ivan. Does Ivan deserve to be terminated? If not him, who should be?
