“The Adventurous Entrepreneur”

Caspar has 30 years of experience in building teams to make things happen through challenging conventional thinking on how leaders and teams become truly effective and create extraordinary results.

Starting as an entrepreneur at the age of 14, he has built and led teams in global corporations, start-up businesses, struggling businesses and high growth businesses, including 10+ years in Professional Services, 5 years at KPMG Corporate Finance and several stints as a CFO. He built a team on a trophy-winning world racing yacht. But his toughest challenge by far was building his family team to sail around the world: with his wife and three children.

In his Keynotes, Workshops and After Dinner Talks, Caspar explains the key steps he’s developed to create and build winning, high performance teams in business, sport and family environments, as they all follow the same principles.

In 2018 his book ‘Where The Magic Happens’ hit #1 Bestseller status and has significantly raised his profile internationally through appearing on CNN, The Telegraph, BBC Radio 2, The Guardian, The New York Post and many more.

Caspar Craven delivers a truly memorable message with energy, with humility and humour, so that you come away inspired with fresh ideas and energy to have the biggest impact on your team.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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. He talked us through the awe-inspiring journey he, his wife and three young children went on as they sailed around the world and translated his experiences at sea by talking us through his ‘eight steps to a winning 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!

    I recently engaged Caspar to speak at our Datacore Sales Kick-off in Malta. 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.

    Caspar’s story is simply inspirational!

    I recently had the pleasure of seeing Caspar address an audience of over 800 technology channel people in Cannes, France. A mix of senior executives, managers, sales, marketing and techies, of which 3/4 were from outside the UK so English wasn’t their first language.

    Despite the language barrier Caspar had them engaged for over an hour telling his story with purpose, vulnerability, humour and humility, making it relevant and demonstrating how the biggest of challenges can be overcome.

    It just goes to demonstrate the power of a great story. Highly recommended for any business looking to grow its leadership teams
