As the son of a Yorkshire coal miner, Adrian started off his diverse and colorful career as a Police Officer in St. Pauls, Bristol. He left shortly after the St. Paul’s riots in order to go ‘back to school’ and he ended up becoming President of Southampton Students Drama.
Tired of 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 a dairy business he worked as, amongst many other things, a radio presenter on a local radio station in Bristol.
To help ‘fund’ his career, Adrian started selling a variety of products, ranging from frozen food to houses. He soon discovered that he could make some real money in sales and he began to take selling seriously. The part time sales side soon took over and became 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.
Following two highly successful years as the Corporate Sales Manager of US Robotics, he joined Northamber Plc an I.T Distributor as Group Sales and Training Manager. He was responsible for recruiting, training, motivating and ‘driving’ a staff of 150 to achieve phenomenal success on a very tight budgets.
It was during this time, out of pure necessity to inspire and retain staff that the world and idea of ‘Polar Bear Pirates’ was born and Adrian discovered his 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 truly makes exceptional people tick, he set about researching some of the UK’s most successful people. The six years of research along with his real-life experiences, raw energy and great sense of humour combine to create a thrilling roller coaster style that is completely original, hilariously funny and brilliantly effective.
