I vividly remember meeting Adrian for the first time in our Milton Keynes office – he told me he was back having beaten cancer and was the smartest dressed person in the office sporting a waistcoat !!
His warmth and friendliness shone through then and over the next few years I got to also see his passion, leadership and enthusiasm for everything the Catapult was trying to achieve.
It was a privilege to be in contact with Adrian during this latest battle – our calls still made me laugh as he shared his stories and then desperately sad when his news wasn’t good. I’m glad we were able to make him smile too with our “treat lunch” in this photo.
Adrian said in our last conversation that he would miss us – we all miss him terribly but he leaves a strong legacy and wonderful memories with his colleagues and friends.
My thoughts are with Cathie and his girls xx
