A Remarkable Life
The son of a Yorkshire coal miner, Adrian Webster started off his varied career as a Police Officer in St Paul’s – Bristol. Leaving soon after the ‘St Paul’s Riots’ to go back to school, and be President of Southampton Student’s Drama. Fed up with being a poor student; he spent the next four years building up a highly successful dairy business from nothing. By knocking on thousands of doors, persuading families to buy his milk!
Having established the dairy business, he went to the USA on holiday; but soon found himself working as a DJ and Lifeguard. On his return to the UK, he worked on local radio in Bristol. To help fund his career Adrian started selling a wide range of products, from frozen food to houses. He quickly found 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 IT sales, and by 1989 he had established himself as one of the best sales people in the industry. After two great years as Corporate Sales Manager of US Robotics; he joined Northamber Plc. an IT distributor, as Group Sales and Training Manager. Responsible (over a five year period) for successfully recruiting, training and driving 150 sales staff to achieve success.
Research of Success
It was during this time that Adrian found his ability to inspire others. To build and develop teams; from people of little or no ability or experience, into some of the best in the industry. Fuelled by a desire to understand what makes people successful – he set about researching some of the UK’s most successful people. Ranging from business leaders and sports people, to show business celebs.
This six years of research, combined with his colourful career and varied experience; forms the basis of his fascinating and eye opening speech. Adrian shares with the audience, his ideas on the characters that he has identified in most teams and businesses. They include among others: Neg Ferrets, Bloaters, Sinkers, Jaffa Gaffas and Polar Bear Pirates, all of which most people will easily recognise!
So What Now?
Today, as well as being a professional speaker, Adrian Webster works as a consultant. Devising team building and motivational programmes – for both sales and non sales teams. He also works with a select number of business and sports clients, as a development coach.
Over the past few years, in his spare time Adrian has played several small roles, on TV and radio. He has started writing for TV and done the odd ‘TV warm up man’ bit (when his arm has been twisted).
