Chris Barez-Brown

Chris Barez-Brown is an author and former director of a global consultancy firm who has been fondly described as the twinkly-eyed lovechild of Richard Branson and a wizard. Interested in uncovering everyone’s inner genius, Chris is an expert at helping businesses to create a workplace culture that is the perfect balance of fun and fruitful.


About Chris Barez-Brown

Chris Barez-Brown spent over a decade as a director of global consultancy ?What If! Innovation. Regularly working with global brands including Nike, Coca-Cola, Diageo and Unilever, Chris has helped establish revolutionary shifts in working practices; including improving employees’ focus, initiating positive interactions amongst colleagues and increasing the number of people pro-actively seeking feedback.


Chris Barez-Brown began his career in the British Army, but quickly realised he was destined to be a lover not a fighter. Making a move into brand management, innovation and leadership, Chris became fascinated by wat makes people tick.

As a keynote speaker, Chris challenges people, businesses and organisations to embed a more energetic and ultimately human culture at the heart of everything they do. He seeks to bring out the potential in everybody and for them to leave inspired, energised, thinking a little differently about the world and equipped with tangible skills to deploy both at work and play.

The author of five books, including one of the same name as his global consultancy, Upping Your Elvis, Chris has been driven by the belief that everyone has a bit of Elvis in them. His work is also featured in the Harvard Business Review, as a paradigm for how getting your energy right produces tangible returns on investment.
