• 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

    Simon Daglish, Commercial Director ITV

  • Chris Barez-Brown is a modern day prophet. He has a gift ... an uncanny ability to inspire change agents in my organization. Everything he touches turns to gold and shines ever so brightly. He is our Elvis.

    Keith Wilmot - The Coca-Cola Company

  • Let Chris Barez-Brown be your idea guru!

    Ken Blanchard, Co-author of the one minute manager

  • The guys are exceptionally good at what they do. I was making a list of the most influential people or things in my career and this was in the top 3.

    Chris Binns, Managing Partner MediaCom

  • Chris Baréz-Brown’s presentation style sparkled and inspired our team to think differently. His unique and powerful insights have the ability to transform any organization.

    Derek Kent, Chief Marketing Officer, Canadian Olympic Committee

  • Our Upping Your Elvis experience was quite exceptional. They engaged, enlightened and entertained us with a 4 hour workshop that was a highlight of our conference. This was all the more impressive as the audience were 250-plus scientists-leaders who normally have a healthy (!) sense of skepticism about interactive workshops. We had fun. We learned. They exceeded our expectations.

    Ron Fuchs, Head of Comms Roche

  • 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."

    John Van Vleck, Global Director, Insights, Ideas and Creativity The Coca-Cola Company

  • Apart from the very insightful content and great techniques I thought the delivery was the best I’ve ever seen – very human and hilarious (and I have high comedy standards ;-))

    Olivia Diamond, Commercial Progamme Manager, Diageo

  • Since starting my business, my group of Personal Trainers have delivered over 60,000 sessions. That’s 60,000 sessions being delivered with more “elvis” than last year…that’s pretty cool!

    Chris Burgess, Personal Trainer, after reading Shine!

  • Chris’s book is a champagne-in-the-veins tonic for jaundiced people who desire to revive the technicolour from a monochrome life. I heartily recommend it.

    Tim Smit, co-founder and CEO of The Eden Project

Upping Your Elvis - People

People not Process

Forget the dull, grey and energy draining workshops of yesteryear. Elvis training is memorable; highly interactive and human. After all, business is people and people need meaning, not just clever techniques and processes. When people engage with their inner self-confidence, they feel happier, more inspired and are ultimately more productive and alive. It’s a win-win.

Image representing People not Process

We challenge people so that change is embedded, but use simple, playful approaches to get there. We deliver energy, positivity and most of all, impact. When people are enjoying an experience, they open up to new ideas and remember them.

Image representing We don’t teach complicated models and processes, but big principles that can be applied to any business situation and won’t be forgotten.
