Our story

Back to the roots


A network of MCs and journalists

Under the initiative of François-Xavier Canova, who had 15 years of experience in the media and events industries, Uprightly was created in 2016.

The initial objective: providing MCs and journalists with specific skills to companies and institutions, to go beyond the simple notion of “popularity”.

Uprightly quickly developed a close relationship with its clients in the public and private sector, due to its ability to quickly provide hosts for events of various formats.

The Uprightly network was then shaped and strengthened by the various requests for moderators and editors for corporate events and audiovisual formats.

At the end of the year, Raphaël Seegmuller joined Uprightly as Associate Director.

With over 15 years of experience in communications and marketing, both in the strategic and production stages, he structures and strengthens the consulting and support activities for companies and institutions.

Uprightly extends its support to marketing strategy consulting, aiming to provide solutions for the reflection or decision making process of companies and institutions.

The purpose is to enhance the value of strategies prior to communication actions, in order to optimize their effectiveness.

At the same time, the expansion of Uprightly’s network of consultants allows us to integrate the skills of industry experts and inspiring public figures, giving our clients the opportunity to better understand complex issues or to inspire their audiences with extraordinary insights at conferences or public events.


Strategy consulting & industry experts


Celebrity marketing and public figures consulting

With an extensive network of experts and journalists, in 2019 Uprightly will be offering services for high-profile public figures such as sportsmen and women, artists and famous TV hosts.

From now on, brands will be able to call on Uprightly to develop meaningful partnerships, through speakers or muse ambassadors.

The company’s management team has been strengthened by the arrival of Stéphane Jobert as Associate Director.

With over 20 years’ experience as a journalist working for TV and radio, he is responsible for the company’s media training and public speaking services. He also takes care of editorial strategies as well as media coaching.

Uprightly is constantly strengthening its internal teams and network of experts to deliver a restructured service that puts expertise at the very core of our business.

With industry experts, Uprightly provides expertise to understand a topic through auditing, industry research, inspirational conferences, consulting and strategy development.

Through our journalist-hosts, our clients are assisted in mastering the art of speaking; in writing, through the development of editorial strategies; in speaking, by training individuals to speak; and in events, by embodying content through animation.
