  • Our success [as Media Week Sales Team of the Year] is in no small measure down to the work we have done with Upping Your Elvis

  • It’s not the instrument that makes the music, it’s the player. So much emphasis in the world of innovation and creativity is placed on process, tools and techniques. Chris fully understands it’s the people who make the magic not the structure. Chris is a master at bringing out the creative spark in people to turn dust into something that matters, so that in the words of John Lennon, “We all shine on."

Upping Your Elvis - Moments

Impactful Events

There are special moments in your business calendar when 
you bring your people together to harness their 
brilliance and get everyone excited about the future. 
Whether a massive conference or intimate awayday, it’s 
a tough brief to deliver on. 
Image representing Impactful Events

These moments include, big annual conferences, quarterly away days, important leadership team get-togethers, customer events, important comms and strategy launches. In short when people come together to do work that counts.

The high investment and expectation puts pressure on the moment; the stakes are high: If it works, it can transform your business, if it doesn’t, it’s a waste of resource and can even deliver the opposite of what's required.

Image representing Elvis love these moments and we have a wealth of experience in delivering unique and special ones. We guarantee to put more magic into those times. People will have a deeper connection to your company’s purpose and that results not only in high energy, fun and engagement, but something will tangibly shift within your business as a result.

The session was very well received. Your suggestions were referenced many times over the rest of the meeting. Your approach is a breath of fresh air in helping my team consider different approaches to work with each other and with a very diverse stakeholder group.
