Background:

The son of a Yorkshire coal miner, Adrian Webster started his career as a Police Officer in St Pauls, Bristol.

He left the Police shortly after the St Paul’s riots to go ‘back to school’ becoming President of Southampton Students Drama Union.
Fed up with being a poor student, he spent the next four years developing a dairy company, knocking on 1000's of doors persuading households and local shops to buy his milk. To help ‘fund’ his career, Adrian Webster started selling a wide range of products, ranging from frozen food to property. 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 I.T. industry.

After two highly successful years as Corporate Sales Manager of US Robotics, Adrian Webster joined Northamber Plc as Group Sales and Training Manager responsible for recruiting, training, motivating and ‘driving’ 150 staff to achieve phenomenal success on shoestring budgets.

Polar Bear Pirates:
Whilst at Northamber, out of pure necessity to inspire and retain staff, 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 UK’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.

Thinking the same old stuff, delivering the same results and shining at just 60 watts, these 100 watt team players are capable of so much more.

 Adrian Webster was highly recommended to us as a brilliant speaker. We were very unsure of using him because we’d never heard of him. We went ahead and used him…he was an absolute star.

Taylor Woodrow Plc

We started the year in last place. We took on board the Polar Bear Pirates concept, used it daily to motivate ourselves/the team and to ensure that we stayed focused. By June we were up to second and come year-end, we finished number one. It had a huge impact on our performance." 

HSBC 

Adrian really is one of the best keynote speakers I have ever heard. He manages to captivate every type of audience right from the moment he starts and always leaves them wanting more. Adrian has a unique ability to have his audience rolling around in laughter one minute to suddenly getting them to hang on to his every word where a pin drop could be heard. The messages Adrian shares will stay with you for life as they are fundamental, full of common sense and yet really make the difference when it comes to bringing out the best in others. 

AXA PPP

His boundless energy and powerful use of humour and emotion kept the audience highly entertained and wanting more. I would thoroughly recommend Adrian Webster to anyone looking for a truly motivational speaker. 

IT Director's Forum. 

In 17 years of being informed and entertained by a wide variety of speakers, no one has engaged, entertained and motivated a Sales Team more than Adrian Webster. 

Wavin Plastics

Adrian’s presentation was absolutely excellent and motivated the entire room to get down to business later on that day. We have also taken back Adrian’s message to the workplace and we are using this to make our firm a first class place to work. 

HSBC

Adrian Webster really was just fantastic. Although I had booked Adrian and, as such, had done my homework and even read his book, I really had no idea that he would actually be as side-splittingly funny as he was. I now realise that when you book Adrian you get a top notch comedian and a motivational speaker for the price of one! His energy and enthusiasm for his subject were utterly infectious (you get out of breath just watching him!) and his ability to have his audience choking on the brink of tears one second and then crying with laughter the next must surely be second to none.
