How we help

Upping your Elvis have brought energy and creativity into the heart of everything we do at ITV. They do it in an incredibly engaging fun style which is infectious.

Kelly Williams Group Commercial Director, ITV

In a rapidly changing world what differentiates successful companies from average ones is IDEAS. ELVIS unleashes the power of people in my team who are enabled to provide conscious and creative leadership to help others translate insights into big ideas.

Stan Sthanunathan Executive Vice President - CMI, Unilever

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 Business Director, MediaCom

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 Group 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

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

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

The room was buzzing, there was really good energy, and the overwhelming feedback afterwards (including from some of the toughest critics) was that it was filled with practical, down-to-earth techniques – not full of confusing jargon and complicated processes, that they could apply straight away. Thank you Chris and Jim
