Luisa Zissman

Businesswoman & Star Of The Apprentice

Luisa Zissman is a businesswoman, retail entrepreneur and one of the most popular candidates to ever appear on The Apprentice. Now a fantastic after dinner speaker, Luisa can provide a fantastic insight into what it takes to be successful in the business world and how her life has changed since shooting to fame in 2013.

Taking a job in an estate agent at 16, Luisa has always known the benefit of hard work and has progressed from this job to opening her own bakery business. After school, she worked for Electronic Data Systems, but it was clear she was bound for bigger and better things. Starting her own baking website Luisa entered popular BBC One show The Apprentice. With an opportunity for a £250,000 investment with renowned businessman Lord Sugar, she was one of the front runners from the very beginning. Describing herself as a cross between Albert Einstein and Jessica Rabbit her confident and assertive approach led her all the way to the final.

Despite losing out in the final to Leah Totton, Luisa had catapulted herself into the public eye. She opened her own bakery shop Dixie’s Cupcakery named after her daughter. She also announced another bakery themed business named Bakers Toolkit. Both have been hugely successful.

Her popularity with the general public was further proven when she competed in Celebrity Big Brother in 2014. Coming 4th overall she was a hit with viewers and has since appeared on a number of panel shows including Reality Bites and News Thing. She also has her own column in ZOO magazine.
