Motivational Speaker & The Polar Bear Pirates:
Drawing on his vast amount of practical experience as a motivator, high-performance team builder, leadership, behavioural change and customer service expert, Adrian Webster takes his audience on an emotional roller coaster ride.
He brings to life a whole new world of fun motivational terminology and characters from his best-selling series of ‘Polar Bear Pirates‘ books that everyone can instantly identify with, take away and put to good use.
Adrian’s world of ‘Polar Bear Pirates’ is closer than you think!
It’s a world where TNTs rule, SONAR is key, Neg Ferrets and BLOATERS reside, Planet Complacency is to be avoided, and Sleepwalkers are woken – all of whom you will instantly recognise.
“Adrian spoke to a mixed audience of languages, roles and seniority. He gave those of us that work at Illumina ‘the World’s Smartest Company’, something to think about, as well as smile about!”
Adrian Webster – The Background:
The son of a Yorkshire coal miner, Adrian started his career as a Police Officer in Bristol.
He left the Police shortly after the St Paul’s riots to set-up his own business.
He spent the next four years building a dairy company, knocking on doors successfully persuading households and local shops to buy his milk. As a result, Adrian started selling a wide range of products, ranging from frozen food to property.
He quickly discovered the ability to make some real money in sales and began to take selling seriously.
Adrian later moved into IT sales at US Robotics, and within two years he had established himself as one of the most successful sales professionals in the industry.
After this, he joined Northamber Plc where he was responsible for recruiting, motivating and ‘driving’ 150 staff to achieve phenomenal success on shoestring budgets.
Out of necessity to inspire his people to deliver extraordinary results, Adrian created the world of ‘Polar Bear Pirates’.
As a result, he quickly gained a reputation for turning teams of everyday people, with little or no apparent ability, into some of the most productive in the IT industry.
Fuelled by a desire to gain a better understanding of what makes exceptional people tick, Adrian 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 presentation which is entirely original, hilariously funny and very effective.
