Consultant and Motivational Speaker
Caspar believes in challenging conventional thinking on how leaders and teams become truly effective and create extraordinary results.
From entrepreneur, to corporate team management, to yachtsman, Caspar Craven has over 30 years’ experience in building teams to make things happen. After University, he spent 8 years in the corporate world – first as a Chartered Accountant and then as an Investment Banker at KPMG.
In 2000, Caspar left the corporate world for a brand new team and he signed up for the BT Global Challenge (called the World’s Toughest Yacht Race). He joined “Yacht Quadstone” as the youngest crew member onboard. After winning trophies around the world and building a team as Watch Captain, he returned to KPMG to run a Technology and Telecoms team. In 2001 he returned to entrepreneurial life as an e-commerce entrepreneur.
His toughest team challenge by far was in 2009 when he built his family team to sail around the world: with his wife and three children aged 9, 7 and 2.
Throughout his career as both family man and entrepreneur, he’s built multiple successful businesses from scratch and sold one for a 7 figure sum…whilst sailing the Pacific Ocean.
In his Keynotes and Workshops Caspar takes the audience through the key steps he’s developed to create and build winning, high-performance teams in business, sport and family environments. He weaves in stories from his experiences leading a team on the world’s toughest yacht race, building a successful business, and building teams within global corporates.
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 those that you work and spend time with. Each session is tailored to meet the exact needs of your organisation.

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
