Caspar Craven's Biography

Leading Authority on the Mindset needed to Achieve Big Bold Goals through effective Leadership and Teamwork

Caspar delivers transformational thought-provoking experiences that will leave your audience feeling inspired and provides real actionable takeaways to help you achieve your big bold goals by putting people first.

He understands first hand, the importance of putting people first in order to achieve big bold goals. He understands because he has made every mistake in the book on the way to achieving a number of big bold goals. He has lived what he talks about.

His experience comes from building and selling a tech business for a 7 figure sum, working as a CFO and 5 years working at KPMG, and also from twice sailing round the world – the first time as a team leader on a trophy winning racing yacht in the BT Global Challenge in 2000/1 and the second time as captain and team leader of his family team in 2014/16 with his wife and three young children under 10 years of age.

The insights he delivers apply equally to building thriving teams both at work and at home - by bringing in these ideas around our family and home teams, he appeals to audiences globally.

He gets booked and rebooked because he’s relatable and delivers a thought-provoking experience with humility and humour. Talks that are highly memorable and still get referred to years later by clients, not just a talk that inspires people on the day.

Caspar is obsessed with setting, tackling and achieving big and bold. Until you start thinking big and bold, you and your team will keep repeating the same incremental changes. It’s impossible to change the game and breakthrough until you fully think and embrace big and bold.

He’s a Best Selling Bloomsbury Author and in writing his recent books, “The Big Bold Mindset® - Rethinking the rules of Leadership” and "Be More Human - Rethinking the rules of high-performance teamwork”, he’s been on a journey to research, study, interview, and learn from some of the most successful leaders in the world.

Success leaves clues and it’s these patterns, insights, and stories that he will bring to your audience to give them a transformational experience, not just a talk.

Caspar is an inspiration. His message of being more human and putting people first has definitely changed my management and leadership style. Having #bigboldgoals, focusing on we not me and doing all you can to get rid of those why nots is key to success. Caspar delivered an amazing, inspiring talk to 42 members of our senior leadership team and left them fired up to really deliver big goals.

Dan Rodrigues

Co-Founder and CEO, TebraCo-Founder and CEO, Tebra

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.
