Caspar Berry

Caspar Berry is a professional motivational and keynote speaker who started his career as the lead in the first series of Byker Grove (1989-1997) on BBC One alongside Ant and Dec. He went on to read Economics and Anthropology at Cambridge and, after aiming to become a professional film writer, he had his first screenplay produced by Film Four in his final year. By the age of 23 he was writing for companies Columbia TriStar and Miramax.

Just two years later, he decided he needed a change in his life, which led him to Las Vegas where he became a professional poker player. He spent three years playing professionally and using his wits against some of the world’s best-known players. After his time in Vegas, he moved back to the UK in 2002. Here he co-founded Twenty-First Century Media and built it into the fastest growing audio visual media company in the North East of England. Whilst here, he began his career as a speaker and catalyst for new thinking within business about risk taking and decision making. In 2008, he sold the company to Bob Geldof’s media giant, Ten Alps.

Caspar Berry’s eye-opening comparisons between playing poker and running a business incorporate risk taking, innovating and communicating. His keynote speeches deliver a unique, insightful and refreshing take on business.

A really fun and relevant afternoon which looks at business in a very different way. Caspar, your session was fantastic and the highlight of the day. Well done. The PayPal team is still talking about it.
Geoff Iddison, CEO, PayPal

Caspar’s presentation stimulated a great deal of very productive discussion about all our attitudes to risk taking and really helped crystallised some of the critical decisions we need to make across the business. It helped us understanding each other as individuals and will be talked about and referenced for a long time to come. We would highly recommend it to any executive team in business.

Caspar is an inspirational speaker but does it with content and delivery that captures the imagination and challenges the audience to really think in a different way.

I thought the session was excellent.
Karl Trumper, Sales and Service Director, Barclays Bank plc. 

Hearing Caspar speak as an illuminating experience for any individual or team who have achieved success but w ant to gain that little extra ‘edge’. He offers great insight into the psychology of really successful people and I would unhesitatingly recommend him for any event.
Lawrence Dallaglio, Rugby World Cup Winner

Caspar skilfully delivered a fast paced, humerous yet insightful presentation on people’s attitude and approach to risk taking. This became one of the talking points at many tables over dinner, after which he ran a highly entertaining participative team competition, picking up on many of the themes covered in the earlier presentation and rounding off the evening extremely well. Caspar adopts a very professional approach to what he does and was flexible and accommodating on the day in response to some changing requirements.
