Adrian Bull is Director of External Relations for the UK National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL). He has responsibility for co-ordinating NNL’s external links, communications, profile and reputation across the UK and – increasingly - internationally. As such, Adrian is closely involved with a wide range of stakeholders including politicians, Government officials, media, customers, industry organisations and universities amongst many others. Prior to taking up this role in 2012, Adrian was Head of Media and Stakeholder Relations for Westinghouse, covering Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
He has worked on many submissions to UK Government consultations on nuclear and energy policy matters, and has given evidence to several UK Government Committees on energy issues.
Adrian chairs the Marketforce Nuclear Issues Group - a small group of senior executives from across the nuclear industry, which meets quarterly to discuss key policy, economic and regulatory developments and their implications across the sector. He has previously chaired both the NIA’s Communications Working Group and the North of England Steering Group for the National Skills Academy for Nuclear. He sits on a number of other regional, national and international committees for bodies such as FORATOM, the Confederation of British Industry and the Nuclear Institute. Adrian is a Fellow of the UK Energy Institute and in December 2011 was honoured to be named as the recipient of the Young Generation Network’s Award for Outstanding Contribution.
Outside work, Adrian is married with 3 children and lives in Manchester, and in his spare time is an occasional fire-eater and fire-breather.
