  • Chris leads the most amazing, inspiring, and self-changing events. They’ve had a profound impact in my life and on my work. He has the uncanny ability to help individuals and companies change – change for the better, more profitable, more joyful. Chris helped me discover my real talents and desires. Working with him has changed my life.

    Jeff Semenchuk, Chief Innovation Officer at Hyatt Hotels Corporation

  • 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

    Stan Sthanunathan, Consumer & Market Insights, Unilever

  • Upping Your Elvis’s simple, human approach to creative leadership helped to teach the Maxus teams that work is all about how we show up every day, not instilling clever techniques and processes. We have applied the learnings, delivered tangible results and live it every day in the work we do at Maxus.

    Jenny Smith, Global Creative Director Maxus
