Upping Your Elvis lead the most amazing, inspiring, and life-changing events. They’ve had a profound impact on my life and on my work. They have the uncanny ability to help individuals and companies change – change for the better, more profitable, more joyful. Working with them has changed my life.

Jeff Semenchuk Chief Innovation Officer, Hyatt Hotels Corporation

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 Programme 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

So much big talk about transformation... Chris actually delivers it. Time and again. Part art, part gift, part crazy man. He works his magic every time!

Maria Eitel Founder of The Nike Foundation

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
