The Nottingham-born Adams was the first person to publicize the significance of workplace bullying, which she campaigned against after her 1980s radio program An Abuse of Power which resulted in a flood of mail from the British public. It is believed that she coined the expression "workplace bullying" in 1988. Her book, Bullying at Work: How to Confront and Overcome It.

Death/legacy

Andrea Adams died from ovarian cancer in 1995, aged 49. The Andrea Adams Trust was launched to campaign against workplace bullying, established in her memory. It provided research, a helpline and education. The Trust was responsible for organising the Ban Bullying at Work Day which is held on the anniversary of Adams's death, the 7th November each year. In 2008 the Trust was closed down as Chief Executive and Founder Lyn Witheridge retired.

Adams's daughter, British author Gemini Adams, wrote a multiple award-winning book entitled, Your Legacy of Love: Realize the Gift in Goodbye, which gives a personal account of her mother's battle with cancer and the insights gained from her bereavement, including the idea that survivors need more than the financial assets that are typically left in a final will and testament.
