WITH THE Bank PHB providing assistance to a school in Lagos and the task being that the apprentice had to raise money to support brilliant but needy students, the three men of Matrix Corporation won.
The Project Manager for the team was Kathleen who together with his team set up a stage play at the Silverbird Galleria to raise the funds.
The piece was performed very well by the trio with Isaac (Ghanaian) drawing the attention of the audience by playing a drum as an intro.
Kathleen (Cameroon) played the mother of a boy (played by Isaac) who had to sell bread before she could afford tuition fees and food.
Eunice (America/Nigeria) played the role of a Good Samaritan who made a passionate plea for money from the by-standers and some gave cheques, while others picked up money from an ATM.
Zulu Cops however had a three piece monologue and they had to grapple with poor PA system and a malfunction with the projector.
Worst of all though, was that they had not used the invited children by the Bank PHB to their advantage.
At the boardroom, Matrix won deservingly but they were not rewarded because of ethical issues raised by the CEO.
When it was Zulu’s turn, Deox (Uganda) had already been fingered by the advisers for contributing the least to the team.
Regina (Ghana) was unsettled by Blessings’ (Nigeria) shocking accusation that she did not listen to advice. She in turn put the blame on Deox for harping on the money aspect.
Deox on the other hand defended himself saying he did exactly what was assigned to him.
The CEO, after listening to the three, explained that a leader should effectively lead and while listening to advice, take responsibility for direction of the team, and so for that reason, Regina was fired.
Isaac is most likely to be the Project Manager for Matrix Corp next week. Can he for the third time lead his team to victory?
