Chris Barez -Brown



Chris Barez-Brown is a specialist in brand management, innovation and leadership. Having started his career in the British Army he soon relaised that he was a lover and not a fighter and changed direction into brand management. From here, having been fascinated by what makes people and businesses tick, he decided to challenge convention to help embed a more human and energetic culture at the heart of any workplace; so that work and life become a fun and fruitful ride. 

Inspired by Bono’s signature question Who’s Elvis round here? (meaning who’s the maverick around here that makes things happen), and driven by the belief that everyone has a bit of Elvis in them, he established the global consultancy Upping Your Elvis.

As a speaker, Chris challenges people to embed a more human and energetic culture at the heart of everything they do.  His work is featured in the Harvard Business Review, as a paradigm for how getting your energy right produces tangible returns on investment. Fascinating!
