Adrian's ability to effortlessly deliver key motivational and team-building messages make him one of the most effective and popular motivational speakers in the UK. His down-to-earth presentation style, infused with humour, energy and real-life examples, capture the attention of audiences from all levels and backgrounds. Unlike other inspirational speakers who have climbed Mount Everest or accomplished amazing feats, Adrian's appeal comes from his modest background that most people can relate to, and his focus is on motivating "people in the real world to get out of bed, climb their own mountains and make a difference in their workplace, day in, day out."

Before Adrian discovering his gift for inspiring others, Adrian started his career as a police officer, milkman and radio presenter, before moving into IT Sales, and establishing himself as one of the most successful sales professionals in the industry. As a Group Sales and Trainer Manager, he was responsible for recruiting and training a 150-strong workforce. Driven by the need to deliver big results on shoe-string budget, he began to develop practical and fun ways to motivate and inspire the staff, and the idea of 'Polar Bear Pirates' was born, leading to the bestselling 'Polar Bear Pirates' book series, which provides an inspiring guide to achieving business and personal success.

In his keynote speeches, Adrian uses the hugely popular concept of the 'Polar Bear Pirates' to relay his key motivational messages in a funny, original and highly memorable way, which can instantly put to use by his audience in an everyday practical sense. It is a world of animated characters, instantly recognisable in the real-life workplace and personal environment, which everyone can relate to.

In 2010, Adrian was invited to address business leaders at the Swiss Economic Forum alongside former Prime Minister Tony Blair, following in the footsteps of other great speakers who have had the same honour, namely: Sir Richard Branson, Kofi Annan, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Rudy Giuliani, Al Gore and Stelios Haji-Ioannou, and thereby cementing his place among the UK's best motivational speakers.

Adrian is also recognisable as the motivational speaker who featured in The Apprentice Series 9 on BBC One, (the Away Day Episode), where he was described as "amazing".

"Adrian was fantastic! A style which I have never seen used so effectively. He had us in hoots but could change within minutes to deliver a very serious message with such feeling and power. Without a doubt the guy had everyone in the room hanging on every word for the full speech. Added to that, he was such enjoyable company." 

“Adrian delivers powerful messages in an engaging, creative and hugely impactful way: always great value for money with amazing long term results well after his appearances: consequently he is invited back time after time"   
Kosta Christofi, Leadership Delivery Manager, HSBC 

"Our conference had come at a very difficult time for public sector employees, with an uncertain future and the real threat of big cuts ahead. There was a palpable increase in the energy level as soon as Adrian spoke his first word on stage, and from that point on we were treated to a highly personal and motivating roller-coaster of a speech. Adrian not only inspired our staff, but left us feeling proud to work for the council." 
Sophie Chadwick, Communications and Corporate Policy Manager, Thanet District Council

“Thank you for energising my team the way you did this morning. The mix of serious food for thought and humour delivered at dazzling speed made a big impact on all.  The feedback was very positive indeed. Your speech will be remembered as the highlight of our conference. You can quote me on that…”
Jeroen Eijsink - Managing Director - DHL Freight 

“Thanks again for your exceptional performance at the Leadership event.  It really did make the day a resounding success.  I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who wants to organise an uplifting and inspirational event.  There is no doubt that the day would have been considerably less successful were it not for the highly skilled inputs delivered by Adrian Webster.  His experience in captivating an audience, holding their attention and driving home key points was invaluable.  The high energy he generated was key to removing the veil of cynicism and apathy that can so often affect large organisations, particularly the Police. It enhanced contributions from the floor and seemed to open the minds of all supervisors to a range of issues and new leadership skills”
Chief Inspector Pete Ayling, Kent Police Leadership Conference 

"Adrian was absolutely fantastic last Friday at our Seminar. It's not easy to win the hearts and minds of a room full of people in the building industry.  Many come having already decided they would rather be somewhere else, or that this sort of thing is for office staff only, etc., but Adrian won them over hook, line and sinker! He talks in a language that everybody can relate to. Adrian is highly entertaining but much more, he has the ability to make you think."
St James Group

"Energy, emotion and some very powerful messages that resonated with the audience, and importantly, could be taken back to the workplace."
Paul McComb - Director of Operations, Benefits and Fraud Directorate, Jobcentre Plus 

“I have had the pleasure of listening to a number of motivational speakers since working for Airbus but I can honestly say that Adrian Webster is far the best, he managed to get the message across using day to day experiences which we can all relate to. The content of Adrian’s talk was funny yet his delivery had passion and made us all think!  Many thanks Adrian!”
Darren Collins, Airbus Apprentice School Manager

“Adrian Webster was phenomenal, he made a real impact with the talk he did for us.  The feedback our organisation gave, from fork lift truck driver to high level leadership, was great.  He was energetic, funny and made every person in the room take a step back and think. A great message delivered from a great speaker”
