Speaking Business podcast

Each week Maria Franzoni, Speaker Bureau Director, invites one of her speakers to talk about their life, work, passions and leisure so that you can get to know the person who is the speaker behind the mic.

May 24, 2018

This week Maria’s guest on the show is Caspar Berry. After studying Economics at Cambridge, Caspar decided to put what he had learnt there into practice in a rather unique way. He moved to Las Vegas and became a professional poker player. He played poker for much of the next three years before finding himself as the poker adviser on the James Bond movie Casino Royale.

Recorded on: 1st March 2018

Show Notes:

In this week’s show, Caspar talks about some of the lessons that you can apply from poker to business.  How embracing uncertainty can help decision making. He tells us about working with Ant and Dec, getting Robert Webb and David Mitchell together and breaking the rules with Daniel Craig in Casino Royale. And much much more …

Significant quotes:

“The essence of poker is the essence of decision-making theory, investment theory and risk-reward analysis.”
