Caspar Craven believes in challenging conventional thinking on how leaders and teams become truly effective and how they then create extraordinary results.
He has 30 plus years’ experience in building teams to make things happen. Starting as an entrepreneur at age 14, he built and led teams in global corporations, start-up businesses, struggling businesses and high growth businesses.
Experience includes 10 plus years in Professional Services including 5 years at KPMG Corporate Finance and several stints as a CFO.
Caspar built a team on a trophy-winning world racing yacht. But he says his toughest challenge by far was building his family team to sail around the world: with his wife and three children aged 9, 7 and 2!
In his keynote speeches,Caspar takes the audience through the key steps he’s developed to create and build winning, high-performance teams in business, sport and family environments. He weaves in stories from his experiences leading a team on the world’s toughest yacht race, building a successful business, and building teams within global corporates.
It really is a truly memorable message with energy, humility and humour so that you and your clients come away inspired with fresh ideas and energy to have the biggest impact on those that you work and spend time with. Each session can be tailored to meet the exact needs of your organisation
"Having very recently booked Caspar for one of my high profile client engagement events, I cannot recommend him highly enough. His talk was extremely engaging and exciting whilst at the same time delivering some key messages on winning teams which were so relevant for the audience. If you want a speaker who will make people listen and engage, Caspar is the one!"
Holly Ainger - Acting Marketing Director/Head of Marketing - B2B at Nuffield Health
"Caspar is a fascinating & engaging speaker who I would not hesitate to recommend."
Matt Austin - Head of People Experience, Reward & Recognition at Deep Mind
"I recently attended a talk by Caspar during a Reward conference in Barcelona. I went into the session with a bit of apprehension as I had often seen these sessions devolving into sermons. Not this one though! A brilliant speaker and an inspiring orator, Caspar had carefully structured the talk with his own life events providing meaningful learnings that one could then incorporate in either their professional or personal lives."
Ayan Majumdar - Director Total Rewards at Pearson
"Caspar is a consummate professional and one of the safest pair of hands on the speaking circuit. He did a superb job at our annual awards for 470 of the small business and investment community. An insightful, genuine and inspirational storyteller that was bang on message for the evening."
