The youth leadership challenge

The contestants had to try to peddle their wares to win this weeks competition.

Learning about business was the theme of the latest episode of YLC, where the eight remaining contestants put on duelling trade fairs in Prey Veng provincial town. The team whose trade fair had the highest sales at the end of the two-day event was proclaimed the winner. High drama ensued as each team gave their all – with earnest contestants working themselves into tears and heated exchanges between opposing team members.

One team conducted a survey of townspeople asking what products they were most interested in shopping for at a trade fair and went on to develop a strategy of selling the most expensive products that people said they were interested in. The strategy worked and the team went on to win the competition, and the team was rewarded with a dinner with Senator and Vice President of the Cambodian Chamber of Commerce Okhna Mong Rithy to get advice on how they can learn to be effective in business. The losing team voted to send two of their teammates home.
