Keynote Motivational Speaking
Understanding how we make decisions and deal with risk can make us all better at what we do. The fundamentals of risk and decision making cut to the heart of the ways in which we allocate resources, plan our time, do more with less and maximise the returns from all of our investments in life.
While Caspar is happy to be billed as a “motivational speaker”, he strives to occupy a relatively unique place in the speaking world with the delivery of intellectually challenging messages from the academic literature on risk and decision-making in a funny, high energy, inspirational manner. Story, maths, metaphor and logic are brought together to create a speech that is funny, challenging, thought-provoking and, at its best, transformative.
He has earned a worldwide reputation as a highly professional and impacting speaker who catalyses change in any audience. Caspar Berry’s key messages – which address the need to take calculated risk in order to achieve success – are timeless and non-sector-specific. This makes them perfect for any training day or conference where new ideas, innovation, leadership, decision-making or change are being discussed or debated.
The science of decision-making is ultimately about why we do what we do and what we become as a result. It has relevance for people’s personal and professional lives and is genuinely applicable to any team in any company in any sector in business today.
It is about inspiring leadership, managing change, increasing efficiency and motivating others. It opens people up to the value of opportunity and shows them how to overcome their natural fear of failure. Ultimately everything we do comes down to a decision. There’s a science of how to make decisions well. I make that science accessible and fun.
As a trained facilitator, Caspar is as happy delivering longer-form seminars to smaller executive groups as he is delivering a keynote speech to 5,000 and regularly delivers speeches of 20, 30, 45, 60, 90, 120 and 180 minutes, even whole-day sessions for the right group.
After Dinner Speaking
About 30% of Caspar’s work is to groups at a dinner who want a business-relevant message delivered alongside a lot of gags in 25-30 mins utilising both verbal and visual (ppt picture-based) humour which is suitable for an international audience.
While the underlying mechanism of Caspar’s material is always centred around the ways in which we make decisions and embrace risk, these are very flexible tools which can be used to address a range of themes such as change, innovation, courage, leadership, differentiation, entrepreneurship and, fundamentally, making great decisions in this new age of uncertainty.
Crucially, Caspar is always focused on the corporate/business significance of everything he speaks about. Poker is just a metaphor throughout and – importantly – gambling is never approved or endorsed. Indeed, while poker can and often is played with clients who want it, the whole point of the sessions is to take the gamble OUT of everything we do and make better decisions for the long term.
