Transform your view on taking risks with Caspar Berry.

We are both delighted and excited to announce that this year’s guest speaker at the Fine & Country Big Weekend is the revolutionary risk taker in business and ex-professional poker player Caspar Berry.
Opportunity. Balance. Motivation. Emotion. These are the key elements of Caspar Berry’s ideology and he will be discussing these with you at our Friday conference. The objective of the session is to explore how to take calculated risks in business and in life, in order to overcome uncertainty and achieve success. 
Caspar Berry has taken many turns on the road; a Cambridge graduate in economics, screenwriter, Las Vegas poker player and not to forget, a poker advisor on the James Bond Movie, Casino Royale.
Berry’s motivational speech will certainly take you outside the usual realms of Estate Agency, engaging and inspiring you from a new perspective. Berry wants people to find their own meaning in his material, encouraging you to discuss and debate new ideas.

The Big Weekend all begins with the International Conference. It is the most important date in your diary with key announcements for your business and for the brand including:
  > Introduction of the updated Fine & Country licence
  > The launch of a new online estate agent strategy
  > Quick fire idea sharing - sharing the best practice ideas from around the network.
  > Motivational speaker and professional poker player, Casper Berry
  > Q&A session with the Fine & Country Board and the NAC
The motivational talk by the business “Game Changer” Casper Berry, international poker player, will show us how to take calculated risks in business and our personal lives, something we may all need for innovation and success.
The quick fire session invites members of the network to share ideas, approaches and practices which have improved their Fine & Country business. Take away with you some of the most innovative and successful business practices which are working today, and contribute with your own strategies for success if you wish to as well. 
To end of the jam-packed day you can enjoy drinks and a Gala dinner at the stunning location, followed by a few drinks at the Bel Air Club, for the most daring of us.
