Chris Baréz-Brown’s life mission is to re-awaken our minds, take people off auto-pilot and engage them in their everyday working lives.
Chris has a rather unusual view of the world in that he knows that everybody is perfect.
As we grow and develop and socialise we can lose touch with that brilliance and often become somebody we’re not. Chris specialises in helping people reconnect with their inner genius and once again become confident in being who they truly are.
Although that may seem rather hippy to some, his results produce tangible returns on investment for companies such as Unilever, Coca-Cola, Nike, Roche, Diageo and WPP, who come back time and again for his unique and energetic approach to transforming their people and their businesses.
He is a master of metamorphosis, challenging and transforming businesses through keynote motivational speeches and workshops on innovation, insightfulness, breakthrough thinking and employee engagement.
Initially starting his career as a soldier, Chris then proceeded to work with some of the world’s most successful brands. This led him to setting up ‘What If’s’ Capability Practice, helping the biggest and best companies become even better.
Much of Chris’s skill lies in generating the energy and instilling the confidence in delegates to go forward as creative champions. From this point onwards, they are able to drive the agenda from within their organisations.
Chris believes that life is too short to be average. There is so much potential that goes untapped and business resource that is wasted. Without jargon, and with great passion, Chris explores the humanness of innovation.
He founded ’Upping Your Elvis’ in 2009 driven by the belief that everyone can shine more brightly.
His personal passion is creative leadership and he is wholly committed to making this planet a shinier and more fulfilling place for everyone in it.
He is the author of the 3 best selling business books:
- How to Have Kick-Ass Ideas
- Shine – How to Survive and Thrive at Work
- Free! Love your Work, Love your Life
What is Upping Your Elvis?
When U2 lead singer Bono was on his quest to eradicate third world debt, he used to turn up to big organisations and ask the question “so who’s Elvis around here?”
He was looking for the ones who challenge the status quo, who use creativity to solve problems and inspire those around them and who bring an energy and sense of possibility to everything they do.
Chris believes that everyone has ‘Elvis’ inside of them.
He believes that everyone can make an incredible difference in their lives if they know how.
As a keynote speaker, Chris Baréz-Brown provides delegates with the creativity, energy and flexibility to improve everything around them every day… this is Creative Leadership.

- Access the power of your creativity everyday.
- Create a culture of creativity and innovation at work.
- Inspire those around you to think differently and positively.
