Who is Michaela Wain?

Michaela does a lot of work in the construction industry – her LinkedIn profile says she’s the director of five different companies(!) However, she mainly manages the day-to-day operations of construction magazine Design and Build. Just in case you’re not a regular subscriber, you can see its (downright funky) website here.

What to expect from Michaela

Expect her to get feisty, especially if she’s on a mixed-gender team: she says that after working in a male-dominated industry she despises men who talk down to her.


The Apprentice airs Wednesdays at 9pm on BBC1.
