Caspar Berry started his career as the lead in one of BBC1’s flagship television programs of the 1990s before going on to read Economics and Anthropology at Cambridge.
At university, 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 during which time he made a good living pitting his wits against the game’s best known players. It was a great period of my life during which time I learned many of the key messages which I now impart to businesses today.
His key messages 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.
