Caspar, 40, started his career while still a teenager as the lead in one of BBC1’s flagship television programs of the 1990s. He went on to be a prolific theatre director at Cambridge University and 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.

Highlights:

  • Professional film writer for BBC, Channel 4, Miramax and Columbia Tri Star
  • Co-founded Twenty First Century Media and built it into the fastest growing audio visual media company in the North East of England
  • Hosted over 400 television shows on SKY television
  • One of the two poker advisors on the James Bond Movie, Casino Royale.
  • Speaker at over 1,500 events in over 30 countries for over 300 clients.

Programs

Risk & Decision Making – The first speech he wrote, it looks what a decision actually is, how decision making happens and asks how well we make them, and whether we could make them better.

Luck in Business & Life – Referencing a very broad range of subject areas – from the lottery to the holocaust – this speech on luck motivates people to change the focus of their thinking away from that which is disempowering towards that which is positive, proactive and powerful. Why? Because luck – when you think about it – is simply that which you cannot control.

Uncertainty and Risk Taking – identifies the source of risk and uncertainty in the fabric of the universe before looking at its effect on us all economically, psychologically and culturally.
