  • Working with Elvis is like Rehab. I am energised and excited by that. I know who I am and what’s great about that.

    Dean Watson, Director, 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

  • 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!

  • 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

  • I can say without hyperbole that my week with Chris, Jim and the rest of the Elvis team down in Lyme Regis was one of the most enriching experiences I've had in my career. I immediately came away from the course with a new armoury of skills to help bring out my own creativity and that of others. Months on I am still feeling the effect of how the course has helped me to grow personally, in ways both tangible and tacit.

    Sarah Borland, Director MediaCom

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.
