At the age of 16, Adrian participated in a school exchange to Germany, which sparked his interest in languages and inspired him to take A Levels in French and German. Keen to study a language at university, Adrian felt that taking a language alongside another subject was a powerful combination, so he opted for German with Management Studies.During his studies, Adrian undertook a placement year with a German company in Hamburg and, after graduating, he returned to Germany and worked in Dusseldorf for four years.
Regarding the importance of languages, Adrian said:
“Learning a language helps you to develop a more outward-looking perspective on the world and can open up a whole host of opportunities, both in your career and also on a personal level. It is not just about communicating in a different language, you are able to gain a much deeper understanding of the culture and the people, which helps you to develop stronger connections”
Today, Adrian is a member of our Senior Team, managing our Sales & Marketing operations and interacting with our customers around the globe.
