What is the Elevation Collective™?

A head and heart centred business and thought leadership mastermind and community called the “Elevation Collective™”.

In this growing community, each member has evidenced how much they care about elevating their personal and business leadership and contributing to a better world through insightful connection and collaboration.

The Background

During the pandemic, I reflected upon the incredible number of business and thought leaders I have connected with – today more than 400 guests and 550 interviews. Some of the guests are business leaders running exciting companies. I’ve interviewed entrepreneurs with innovative ventures, thought leaders and speakers on a huge array of subjects who are inspiring audiences around the world, consultants and coaches, psychologists and scientists.

Some have been leaders in the world of charity, movies, entertainment, sport, publishing, sustainability, tech, military, finance, education sectors and more. I started to feel a growing sense of necessity to introduce some of these inspiring people to one another. I wondered how much good might result in the world if I brought some of them together? Could we work together to help this increasingly unsettled world?

So back in October 2020, I connected seven special people on Zoom. This was the first “Elevation Collective™” meeting. I remember feeling rather nervous! What would happen next…? I will never forget that first event. I witnessed each guest feeling some degree of nervousness as they heard the stories of each other’ contributions.

The accomplishments of those seven people ranged from introducing NLP to Europe and building a genomic research firm, from authoring multiple best-selling books to making major contributions to Nascar racing; from regenerative farming in the USA to executive coaching and consultancy across global corporations and NGO’s. These people were extraordinary and very quickly connected with an authentic peer group of like minded people.

In the time since our first meeting, the first cohort has talked about their fears and aspirations. We have dealt with some deeply personal stuff and had breakthroughs. Outside of the room, we supported each other’s book launches and projects and personal challenges. We created a ‘seat of magnificence’ where we gave each other support and honest feedback.

Ideas were generated to add more value towards our work and its positive ripples. This extra energy and insight began to have impact into the outside world. Today, we are very close.  When others encounter this first group, I’ve been told repeatedly that “the energy is something to behold.”

The second collective commenced in September 2022 with an equally incredible membership of entrepreneurs and thought leaders and deep bonds are growing. The third is fully booked and begins in April 2024.

Does this sound like something you’ve been seeking?

Any initial discomfort was replaced by deep, meaningful, and kind conversation. As one of my wonderfully inspiring show guests,  Dr Dravon James, once said to me ‘restless people need a place to call home’. It became clear that she was right! And the first Elevation Collective™ was a new place where exceptional people can come together to co-create and collaborate.

We are all striving to be the best version of ourselves and for those of us particularly in the second half of our careers we feel the clock ticking. If we still plan to make a greater contribution, we need to get out of our own way.  As a species, it seems humans have prioritized having more, getting more, doing more, controlling more, and winning more over genuine collaboration, cooperation and caring.

The Elevation Collective is an antidote to negative paradigms. We believe that we must help change this dynamic. I only need to reflect on my garden in the Summer of 2022, burnt to a crisp after record UK temperatures or read the news to know that much is unwell in the world. A higher level of consciousness is needed. Would you like to join us?

In co-creating this concept, it became clear within our collective that there was great value in building a wider community of experience, diversity, and kindness.

How does the Elevation Collective & community work?

In the time since that first memorable Zoom call in October 2020, I’ve realized that to grow our impact, we need to create dynamic, engaging cohorts. I call these “collectives”. Each collective is an intimate gathering of just 6-8 extraordinary people.

We meet on a monthly virtual zoom call that I host. During and in between these monthly calls, we encourage and support each member of the collective in providing support, encouragement, friendship, energy, and insight to elevate personal leadership, consciousness and improve the success of initiatives independently or together. Collectives meet monthly for 2 hours.

All cohorts also have the opportunity to meet together quarterly online. During our event in February 2024 our guests were Howard Behar (the former International President of Starbucks) and Paul and Magda Gavlic (9 times diamond award winning composers).

After a hugely successful face to face event in 2023 in Windsor in the UK that exceeded all our expectations we also meet face to face at least annually.

As The Elevation Collective™ is evolving new exciting opportunities are emerging that are bringing value to us all

Experiences from The Elevation Collective™

‘It’s been my deep pleasure to orbit the world of Chris Cooper. This started when I was a guest on his show and subsequently, Chris and I formed a tight bond in our aligned work in the world. My experience of taking part in Chris’ is group is unparalleled. Our inner work of leadership and the striving to realise our full potential as human beings can be daunting when attempted alone. To be in a trusted circle of supporting souls is both nourishing and navigational. The exponential benefit of this trusted circle is beyond measure. Chris has the unique genius to both attract bright lights and hold the centre flame for our group’.

‘Chris is a people alchemist. He brings an impressive range of individuals with different backgrounds out of which flourishes a group oasis. Chris is hugely skilled at facilitation combined with an extraordinary ability to sign post valuable resources. If you are curious, open to learning and have a deep desire to make a real difference then this approach makes a profound impact on your personal development’.

Chris you are a genius to have so expertly brought us all together. And for creating an environment that is so full of generosity and creativity, where everyone feels welcome and at ease, and shows up in a truly authentic way. It is a genuine pleasure to be part of this creative open minded group of people, who so generously share their experience, their minds, and hearts.

‘Chris formed this from his amazing network of exceptional change makers in the the world. Those of us privileged to be meeting each other share his passion to elevate our own consciousness and that of the worlds we inhabit. He leads with a very gracious and subtle touch, inviting each of us to step into the fullness of our best selves. As a result, the interactions are intimate and informative, drawing on the different life experiences and perspectives we bring. We are powerful together and Chris is the source of why we’ve come to be so!
Gene Early, partner at Leaders Quest, behavioural expert who launched Neuro Linguistic Programming across Europe

‘I’ve known Chris to be a leader and innovator who guides business leaders to reach new levels of success. Having been a guest on his Business Elevation show, I also saw first hand how curious and genuine he is as it relates to exploring the many ways that leaders can, indeed, elevate their businesses. As Chris and I formed a close friendship, I was invited to join the initial elevation collective group. I quickly realised that his passion for elevation was truly about people at a time when we need each other more than ever. Chris has created a beautiful space for like minded people who recognise that we is greater than me! To say this has been invaluable to me is an understatement.

What is the investment?

The benefits of joining The Elevation Collective™ are as emotional, psychological and personally rewarding as they are financially beneficial to your business goals. There is a monthly investment to join the collective or annual pre-payment earns a 10% discount. Each member is invited for just one year at first to see how beneficial it is to them, and how well they gel with their cohort.

It is the experience so far that members make vitally important connections and shifts in behaviour that have both tangible and intangible benefits that far surpass their investment.

Your next step…

New Elevation Collectives will form regularly and the next will commence in the third quarter of 2024.

The first step is usually become a guest on the Business Elevation show which enables us to form a relationship . We would also have a conversation about your hopes and goals and what you’d like to contribute and receive from The Elevation Collective™.

If we both believe that it is a match for you and your dreams and for the community, we will discuss when the next opening will be. Also, provide opportunity to meet other collective members before commitment is made.

I look forward to hearing from you,

With Warm Regards,
