Drawing on a vast amount of practical experience, Adrian Webster takes his audience on an emotional roller-coaster ride.
He brings to life a world of motivational terminology and characters from his best-selling series of ‘Polar Bear Pirates’ books which everyone can identify with, take away and put to good use.
Adrian’s ‘Polar Bear Pirates’ world is closer than you think! It’s a world where TNTs rule, SONAR is key, Neg Ferrets and BLOATERS reside, Planet Complacency is a place to avoid, and Sleepwalkers get woken!
“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, and to smile about!”
Adrian Webster – The Background:
The son of a Yorkshire coal miner, Adrian’s career started in Bristol as a Police Officer.
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 persuading households and local shops to buy his milk. As a result, Adrian started selling more products, ranging from frozen food to property.
Adrian later moved into sales at US Robotics. Within two years, he was one of the most successful sales professionals in the IT industry.
After this, he joined Northamber Plc where he was responsible for recruiting, motivating and ‘driving’ over 150 staff, achieving phenomenal success on shoestring budgets.
To inspire his people to deliver extraordinary results, Adrian created the world of ‘Polar Bear Pirates’.
As a result, Webster gained a reputation as a motivator, 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 started to research some of the UK’s most successful people.
These six years of research, mixed with his real-life experiences, raw energy and sense of humour, make Adrian an entirely original, hilariously funny and very popular motivational speaker.

- Thriving In Tough Times – Delivering Outstanding Results.
