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".
