Caspar Berry, 40, started his career while still a teenager as the lead in one of BBC1’s flagship television programs of the 1990s before going on to read Economics and Anthropology at Cambridge University.

At Cambridge, Caspar was a prolific theatre director where he worked with a wealth of talent in The Footlights, and after setting his sights on becoming a professional film writer he had his first screenplay produced by Film Four whilst still in his final year. By the time he was 23 Caspar was writing for Miramax and Columbia Tri Star. Then at 25, he took the decision that would dramatically change his life: he moved to Las Vegas and became a professional poker player!

Caspar played poker professionally for most of the next 3 years of his life in Las Vegas, during which time he made a good living pitting his wits against some of the game’s best known players. It was in this period that he also learned many of the key messages that he now imparts to businesses around the world today.

In 2002, Caspar returned to the U.K.,  co-founding Twenty First Century Media and building it into the fastest growing audio visual media company in the North East of England before selling it in 2008 to Bob Geldof’s media giant, Ten Alps.

It was while still at the helm of twenty first century media that he began his career as a speaker and catalyst for new thinking within business about risk-taking and decision-making using his experience as a poker player to explain how we all make decisions in our personal and professional lives.

Throughout this time, he continued to be a presence on the poker scene in the UK as the host of over 400 television shows on SKY television, strategy writer for Flush magazine and one of the two poker advisors on the James Bond Movie, Casino Royale.

He has now been a professional motivational and keynote speaker for the last 6 years during which time he has delivered over 1,200 speeches for over 300 great companies in Europe, America and Asia.

His key messages revolve around the need to embrace uncertainty and take calculated risk in order to get the edge and achieve success are timeless and non-sector specific making them perfect for any training day or conference where new ideas are being discussed or debated. He is a catalyst for change and his famously upbeat, energetic style is always inspirational.
