Claude Littner, who is one of Sir Alan Sugar's aides in the current series of The Apprentice, offered up his time to Level 3 and A Level Business students to answer their questions and give advice on careers and business during a video conference call.
The students got to pose their questions to Claude, who once chaired a number of Sir Alan Sugar's companies including Amstrad International, Amstrad Spain and Dancall Telecom.
Jak Gee, 16, is studying Level 3 in Business and asked Claude who he is inspired by in business.
Jak said: "What a great start to the day!
I thoroughly enjoyed our session and found it really interesting hearing Claude's take on how he approaches people in business and to listen to his advice on finding what and who inspires us.
"He talked a lot about the importance of integrity and of becoming the person that you want to be.
I found it really refreshing that Claude takes his inspiration from the people around him, not necessarily celebrities, but those he works with who share his personal values."
Claude also served as Chief Executive of Tottenham Hotspur between 1993 and 1998, a period during which Lord Sugar was majority owner and chairman of the club.He was also Deputy Chairman of Blacks Leisure plc, Chairman of ASCO plc and Chairman and majority shareholder of Powerleague plc.Claude said: "I am absolutely delighted to have participated in a Q&A session with such an interesting and intelligent group of young people.
Business Matters: Viewers favourite Claude Littner to replace Nick Hewer on The Apprentice
Littner, who is known for his very direct approach in interviewing the candidates and speaking his mind in very frank ways is sure to shake a few things up when he replaces Sugar's long standing right hand man Hewer.
Littner will join Karren Brady to watch the hopeful candidates as they take part in the tasks, before reporting back to Lord Sugar about their successes - and, more likely, their failures.
"If the candidates think I am soft and fluffy, they haven't been watching me on The Apprentice over the past decade," Littner said.
"I will now be assessing their performance in the process, individually and within their teams.
I will be reporting to Lord Sugar to play my part in ensuring that his personal investment of £250,000 goes to the best candidate.
I'm ready, and this won't be a walk in the park!"
I confirm Nick Hewer's replacement in next series of Apprentice is Claude Littner @claudelittner .Imagine how delighted the candidates are.
Lord Sugar said of his new advisor: "I first worked with Claude in 1990 and trust his judgement completely.
Littner has known Lord Sugar for 25 years, having served as a director of Amstrad plc, Amstrad International, Dancall, Viglen and Tottenham Hotspur.He currently chairs a number of the entrepreneurs companies.
