I met many marketing people in my time as MD of the Millennium Dome, including Adrian. He was without doubt one of the best and made the Dome work for BT against the odds. Their sponsorship was effective with 2.5 million people visiting their zone and it was all delivered on time, on budget and on brand. Best of all he is a great guy to work with!
