Do school visions really matter?


As a fan of the television show ‘The Apprentice’ I always enjoy the bit at the start of the series where the two teams come up with their team names and explain how their team name fits the culture of their team. It never ceases to amaze me the nonsense that these, so called professionals come out with, meaningless stock-business terminology like ‘endeavour’, ‘aspire’, ‘spirit’ and ‘exceptional’ get thrown around and the actual team names are always a joy to behold. Previous seasons have given birth to suggestions such as ‘Decadent’, which the team actually kept for an episode before being ordered to change, because it was deemed inappropriate and ‘Impact’ because as the contestant explained “the meaning of impact is impact!” And my personal favourite, which unfortunately did not get picked, ‘The Sugarbabes’. Unsurprisingly, the contestant who actually suggested this particular name, was fired in the first week.
