Speaking

Talks that will engage, motivate and inspire!

A talk delivered by Chris is, well, quite simply, like no other you will have experienced before. Chris’s life mission is people (with a side line in cider and guitars). This ethos, combined with a wealth of experience in innovation and leadership across 6 continents, means Chris’s talks are memorable, interactive and human.

He is a master of transformation with the unique capability to bring out the potential in everybody. (CEOs included)

The Guardian recently summed up Chris’s style as ‘a long haired twinkly eyed cross between Richard Branson and a wizard’, which paints the most accurate picture: A dynamic business change-maker with a magical hippie vibe.

Chris founded his consultancy Upping Your Elvis to further the cause and has worked with brands such as Nike, Unilever, Diageo and MediaCom who come back time and again, having seen the return on investment on their teams’ wellbeing and productivity.

Chris spoke at TEDx in January 2016, inspirational ideas festival The Do Lectures in June 2015 and the world’s largest leadership event Leadercast in May 2016, where he also had the honour of interviewing Apples’ co-founder Steve Wozniak live on stage.

Oh, and he is also totally up for any fireside guitar strumming chats on the meaning of life.
