be bold

don’t always bet on the obvious
virtual private roundtable 15 FEB, 2-3PM

“The secret of change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new”

socrates

The world in 2022 continues to be unpredictable, disrupted and even dysfunctional at times. Social unrest, viruses, mutations, vaccines, climate change, the great resignation, artificial intelligence, digitalisation…the list goes on. In response to unrelenting adversity, the human brain is conditioned to hunker down and weather the storm. But this survival instinct does not work in the world of business. To survive, you must be bold. You cannot stand still.

Coming out of the last recession, companies who invested in CX grew three times faster than the average. The churn of companies in/out of the Fortune 500 was 90% higher than the previous ten years. And those who were slow to respond ultimately spent 1.85x more than their competition and made bigger, riskier, single bets. Far from buttoning down the hatches, the bold organisation says, “now is the time to go out and conquer”.

So, what does the bold organisation look like? And what about the bold team? Even the bold leader?

Caspar started his working life at the age of 16 as an actor in the first two series of BBC drama Byker Grove with “Ant and Dec”. At aged 26, he decided to take a risk and move to Las Vegas with his life savings in his pocket. Playing poker was disciplining, testing and demanding but also incredibly emotionally rewarding as he conquered the challenges it posed and made a living as a professional poker player at the tables of Las Vegas.

He then went on to set up Twenty First Century Media which he built to a team of 40 before selling to Bob Geldof’s Ten Alps plc. In 2006 he was then asked to be one of the two poker advisors on the James Bond movie “Casino Royale”, tasked with training the actors up to look like professional poker players for the key scenes.

In the last 14 years Caspar has delivered over 2,000 speeches and training sessions in more than 30 countries for nearly 500 organisations including the biggest companies in the world.
