In business, just like poker, you are often dealt hands that are not of your choosing. If you're lucky and the hand is good…well you know. And, then there are the weak hands! In order to be a great decision maker -- or investor -- you need to understand the brilliance, limitations and flaws of your innate judgement. What's Next for You? Understanding how you make decisions and deal with risk can make you better at what you do. Professional poker player and entrepreneur Caspar Berry's eye-opening comparisons between playing cards and running a business incorporates innovating, risk-taking, communicating, and decision-making. This is an opportunity to examine the implications for your business from a very different perspective. You'll long remember Caspar's unique, refreshing, and humorous insights!

At university, Caspar was a prolific theatre director where he worked with a wealth of talent in The Footlights and after setting his sights on becoming a professional film writer he had his first screenplay produced by Film Four whilst still in his final year. By the time he was 23 Caspar was writing for Miramax and Columbia Tri Star. Then at 25, he took the decision that would dramatically change his life: he moved to Las Vegas and became a professional poker player.
