When Caspar Craven is booked for events, they are known to discuss the following speaking topics:

Big Bold Goals – How to Achieve the Impossible
Be More Human – Rethinking the Rules of High-Performance Teamwork
Time to Change Tack – Adapting in Times of Crisis
Mental Health, Resilience & Wellbeing

Caspar Craven’s ‘Big Bold Goals’ is key to developing mental resilience and wellbeing. His approach focuses on the power of failure, the importance of human authenticity and how we can all succeed when we step out of our comfort zones. The keynote speaker equips corporate audiences with the knowledge needed to transform their workplace culture and make big bold goals a company-wide standard for success.

With his combined experience as a business leader, having launched his first company aged just 14, and as a sailing captain, Caspar’s speeches offer a unique insight. He first took to the waves in the BT Global Challenge Yacht Race, before returning in 2014 to circumnavigate the globe with his wife and three young children. Both experiences taught Caspar the value of resilience, a sentiment he shares with audiences today.

Caspar’s decades of business experience dates back to his first entrepreneurial venture. As a young entrepreneur, he grew and sold several successful start-ups, including a seven-figure business deal. Caspar has also worked for KPMG Corporate Finance, as a Chief Financial Officer and in the Professional Services sector for over a decade, each achievement a testament to his business expertise.

Specialising in quality leadership and high-performance teams, Caspar’s speeches discuss the impact workplace culture has on mental health. He reveals the untapped potential of an uninspired workforce and the small-minded perspective that leads to a lack of motivation. For a workplace in a rut, Caspar empowers a newfound passion for performance, leading to improved wellbeing and drive.

The bestselling author of ‘Be More Human’ and ‘Where The Magic Happens’, Caspar brings the focus back to what truly matters – human connection. By putting employees first, he believes that workplace stress and burnout can be an issue of the past, replaced instead with increased drive, wellbeing and mental health.
