Caspar Berry

Caspar Berry is a leading keynote speaker on the topics of Decision Making and Risk Taking.

Caspar uses the metaphor of poker as a vehicle to communicate universally resonant messages around the need to take risk and seize opportunities. He leaves audiences informed, inspired and empowered to take better decisions to achieve their objectives and goals.

Story, maths, metaphor and logic are combined to create speeches which are funny, challenging, thought-provoking and often, genuinely transformative.

Caspar started his career as an actor. He’s probably best known for playing ‘Gill’ in BBC One’s Byker Grove. After two years of acting, he read Economics at Cambridge University. He spent much of his time directing theatre such as the Cambridge Footlights and working with performers such as Olivia Colman, David Mitchell and Robert Webb.

Whilst still at university he had his first screenplay produced by Film Four. By the time he was 23, Caspar was writing for Miramax and Columbia Tri Star– his film writing future looked good. However, aged 25, Caspar made a decision that would change his life forever… he moved to Vegas and became a professional poker player!

Caspar played poker professionally for the next 3 years, during which time he made a good living pitting his wits against the game’s best known players. During this time he learned many of the key messages which he now imparts to businesses today. Caspar also had the privilege of being a poker advisor on the Bond movie, Casino Royale.

In 2002, he returned to the UK and co-founded Twenty First Century Media – building it into the fastest growing AV media company in the North East before selling it to media giant – Ten Alps.

Over the past 15 years, Caspar has delivered more than 2,000 speeches and training sessions in over 30 countries to clients including Google, Visa, IBM, Paypal, AUDI, Volvo, Shell, Esso, Microsoft, Sainsbury’s, Network Rail, Tesco, ASDA, PWC, Deloittes, E&Y, KPMG, Seimens, McDonalds and Redbull.

Caspar has a worldwide reputation as an impactful speaker on the topic of risk, who catalyses change in any audience. Each speech can be delivered as a 30 minute after-dinner speech, a 90 minute keynote or anything in between. Caspar can also deliver a selection of interactive and practical workshops.
