He went on to read Economics and Anthropology at Cambridge and after aiming to become a professional film writer he was able to have his first screen play produced by Film Four in his final year.
At the young age of twenty-three, Caspar was writing for Columbia Tri Star and Miramax. Merely two years later however he decided he needed a change in his life, which led him to Las Vegas where he became a professional poker player.
Caspar spent three years playing professionally, and made a good living by using his wits against some of the best known poker players. After his years in Vegas, he returned to the UK in 2002. Here he co-founded Twenty First Century Media, and built it into the fastest growing audio visual media company in the North East of England.

He then went at it on his own to become one of the best known business speakers in the UK. He has delivered over 600 speeches over the last six years, for over 200 companies around the world.
His presentations focus on the need to embrace uncertainty and taking calculated risks in order to get ahead and achieve success. They are not sector specific, and are therefore perfect for any training day or conference where new ideas need to be discussed or debated. He is very inspirational and stimulates change with his upbeat and energetic style.
