Riot policeman, milkman and salesman were just a few of the entries on Adrian's CV before he moved into the I.T industry and discovered an ability to motivate and inspire others.

Adrian is a most entertaining and effective motivational speaker. He specialises in delivering key messages on behalf of clients in a humorous and completely unique, down to earth style that audiences can easily relate to.

His inspirational presentations help people at all levels and from diverse backgrounds to make a very real difference in their workplace.

Drawing on his vast amount of practical experience as a motivator and team builder he brings to life a whole new world of fun motivational terminology and characters that everyone can instantly identify with, take away and put to good use - a world not a million miles away where TNTs rule and Neg Ferrets, BLOATERS and Sinkers reside... all of whom you will no doubt instantly recognise!

The son of a Yorkshire coal miner, Adrian started off his colourful career as a Police Officer in St Pauls, Bristol. He left shortly after the St Paul's riots to go 'back to school' and ended up becoming President of Southampton Students Drama. Fed up with being a poor student, he spent the next four years building up a dairy company by knocking on thousands of doors and persuading households and local shops to buy his milk. Having established the dairy business he worked as, amongst many other things, a radio presenter on local radio in Bristol. To help 'fund' his career, Adrian started selling a wide range of products, ranging from frozen food to houses. He quickly discovered he could make some real money in sales and began to take selling seriously, the part time sales side soon took over as his full time career.

In 1987 he moved into I.T sales and by 1989 he had established himself as one of the most successful sales professionals in the industry. After two highly successful years as Corporate Sales Manager of US Robotics, he joined Northamber Plc an I.T Distributor as Group Sales and Training Manager responsible for recruiting, training, motivating and 'driving' 150 staff to achieve phenomenal success on shoestring budgets.

It was during this time, out of pure necessity to inspire and retain staff that the world of Polar Bear Pirates was born and Adrian discovered an ability to turn teams of everyday people with little or no ability into some of the most productive in the I.T industry. Fuelled by a desire to try to gain a better understanding of what really makes exceptional people tick he set about researching some of the world's most successful people. These six years of research along with his real-life experiences, raw energy and sense of humour combine to create a thrilling roller coaster style that is completely original, hilariously funny and brilliantly effective.

Adrian is now a best selling business author with his first book 'Polar Bear Pirates and their quest to reach Fat City' being successfully sold worldwide.
