Caspar Berry

Decision Making & Risk Taking

Biography

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. In 2006 he was the poker adviser on the James Bond movie, Casino Royale.

Before all this, however, Caspar studied economics at Cambridge University and built and sold his own company to a PLC. What he saw in the mechanics of poker was a relevance to business that was not fully understood or realised by most. So now he brings cutting edge scientific research together with powerful metaphors and his own personal experiences as a professional poker player to create motivational speeches and training sessions that are informative, original, funny and moving.
