In 30 plus years experience of building and leading teams to achieve big, bold goals, Caspar has experienced many different businesses and environments.

Importantly, he has consistently found that the most successful leaders and teams are the ones who recognise that we are all building two teams – a team at work AND a team at home.

His experiences have covered businesses of all sizes and, having started out as an entrepreneur at 14, he built and led teams in global corporations, start-up businesses, struggling businesses and high growth businesses. This includes 10+ years in Professional Services including five years at KPMG Corporate Finance and several stints as a CFO. Additionally, he built
multiple successful ventures from scratch, one of which was sold for a 7-figure sum.

Caspar’s unique journey & perspective includes sailing around the world, twice – the first time on a trophy-winning racing yacht and the second time with his family team – my wife and three children under the age of ten. This rare experience prompted him to wonder why family teamwork is so rarely spoken about in business when it offers so many powerful insights and ideas about how to build thriving teams at work.

Both involve putting people first knowing that results will follow. Both involve being more human.

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!

Caspar was our opening keynote at the Rewards & Benefits Summit, an event that attracts an audience of senior HR professionals. He delivered a sensational presentation that both engaged and inspired our delegates. I’d highly recommend Caspar.
Georgina Kelly – MD Summit Events

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.
Guy Tolhurst – CEO Indagate Group

I recently engaged Caspar to speak at our Datacore Sales Kick-off in Malta. Caspar did an excellent job engaging the entire team. It was a tough audience consisting of 85 Sales people from 9 countries with the majority not having English as their first language. The feedback from the team was overwhelmingly positive. Caspar provides a balance of practical advice and inspiration, the delivery is authentic and entertaining. I highly recommend Caspar.

We invited Caspar in as part of our quarterly speaker programme which is designed to stretch the thinking of leaders across our organisation. In the five years of running the programme Caspar is one of the most inspiring people we’ve heard from, offering us a fresh perspective on leadership and working better as a team. As well as being very entertaining the
talk was highly relevant to our business and our employees left buzzing with tangible takeaways. I thoroughly recommend Caspar as a speaker!
Chloe Marsh – Head of Communications, RHP Group

Caspar’s presentation was described by our customers as ‘captivating’ and ‘inspiring’ with almost all rating the session as excellent. Caspar was one of the most professional and personable keynote speakers I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. Really went the extra mile to understand our audience and then gave up his own time to chat further with our customers in the evening, which they really enjoyed. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Caspar – an incredibly talented and genuinely nice man.

We recently invited Caspar Craven to speak at the annual user conference for my company, Kareo. Caspar shared the lessons he learned through building a successful business while preparing for an extraordinarily audacious goal to sail around the world with his wife and three young children. It was an inspiring, uplifting, and enriching speech about leadership and life that made a profound impression on our customers, employees, and me. As a member of YPO, an international CEO organization, I’ve had the opportunity to hear many amazing speakers over the years and I think Caspar is among the best I’ve seen. I’m a big fan of Caspar and enthusiastically recommend him to leaders in business and community that want to create a unique and powerful experience at their next event.
Dan Rodrigues, CEO and Founder Kareo
