I love the ingenuity of humans, not just the technology we produce, but how it improves lives, keeps us safe and just makes the future better. To me that’s what EY is about.

How Adrian is building a better working world

Securing organisations and allowing them to realise opportunities with confidence is a dynamic and challenging task, but even after twenty odd years, it still excites me. Mainly because it’s not just about the technology, but how innovative you are required to be and the people you get to help, be they staff, clients or those that benefit indirectly from what we do.
