The son of a Yorkshire coal miner, Adrian Webster started his colourful career as a Police Officer in St Pauls, Bristol. He left shortly after the St Paul's riots to go 'back to school' and ended up becoming President of Southampton Students Drama. Fed up with 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 the dairy business he worked as, amongst many other things, a radio presenter on local radio in Bristol.
To help 'fund' his career, Adrian started selling a wide range of products, ranging from frozen food to houses. 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 IT sales and by 1989 he had established himself as one of the most successful sales professionals in the industry. After two highly successful years as Corporate Sales Manager of US Robotics, he joined Northamber Plc, an IT Distributor as Group Sales and Training Manager responsible for recruiting, training, motivating and 'driving' 150 staff to achieve phenomenal success on shoestring budgets.
It was during this time, out of pure necessity to inspire and retain staff, that Adrian discovered an ability to turn teams of everyday people with little or no ability into some of the most productive in the IT industry.

Thank you for energising my team the way you did this morning. The mix of serious food for thought and humour made a big impact on all of us. The feedback was very positive indeed. Your speech will be remembered as the highlight of our conference. You can quote me on that...
Our conference had come at a very difficult time for public sector employees, with an uncertain future and the real threat of big cuts ahead. There was a palpable increase in the energy level as soon as Adrian Webster spoke his first word on stage, and from that point on we were treated to a highly personal and motivating roller-coaster of a speech. Adrian not only inspired our staff, but left us feeling proud to work for the council.
Adrian, I wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the fantastic presentation which you gave yesterday. I know that I speak for many who found it truly inspirational. You had us in one minute both wanting to laugh and cry through a subtle mix of very powerful stories and amusing anecdotes.The messages I took from you about having clear boundaries, TNT's and engendering fun at work will make a real difference.
Feedback comments about Adrian's presentation included: “Adrian Webster - phenomenal!”, “Great choice of speakers, he really lifted everyone”, “Absolutely fantastic - How are you going to match it next year?”.
Adrian, the guys are still talking about you.. thought provoking stuff which we were all able to relate too. Adrian was a huge success. Without exception all of the managers approached us following his presentation to congratulate us on finding a truly inspirational and very entertaining speaker.
I just wanted to tell you that I've run many of these events in the past,and often after a heavy night and the prospect of a half day and an early finish, delegates are often keen to get away. But yesterday most people were milling about for ages wanting to talk more about the conference and to share ideas on what they were going to motivate staff back in the office. Many thanks for your energy, passion and helping make our event a success.
