In the press
Entrepreneur, wine connoisseur, heartthrob and TV star. The traits of Tom Gearing make the 23-year-old sound more James Bond than Apprentice...
Tom Gearing consistently speaks up with common sense in a non-threatening manner. He is one of my favourites.
Is this man, Tom Gearing really a candidate? He belongs on the pages of omg! He's got that sultry stare perfected already.
Very mature, with a real ability to look at a situation and pluck the best opportunity from it. While the others jump straight into a task he takes the time to think of a strategy.
Tom shot to stardom for being the best dressed man on television (pretty much single handedly bringing back the tie clip in the process), but more poignantly for showing business wisdom and entrepreneurial nous way beyond his years.
Tom was in control and implemented a risky strategy of quality and desirability of product over quantity. This proved to be a winning strategy and his experience shone through...Tom understood the task and remained confident with the risks he took. Demonstrating drive and determinism as well as competitiveness and knowledge
My winner is definitely Tom Gearing, the only one with brains and style.
What an enigmatic bloke! He is very quietly spoken with remarkable composure, which means that when he does talk people listen to him. And he is bright, a strategist, thoughtful.
I like Tom (Gearing), his ability to take risks for someone so young.
