Our clients will often say that that we just 'get' their unique businesses, that we bring wide-ranging knowledge and expertise, intelligence, that we are passionate and care deeply, are curious and have spooky levels of intuition and bring utter dedication to what we do. Oh, and that we have a lot of fun and laughs along the way! Here's their feedback in their words…
Holli Rogers, CEO, Browns
I've worked with Lisa and her team for the last 5 years in my last 2 roles as Fashion Director at NET-A- PORTER (where Lisa worked both with me personally and with the Executive Team) and now as CEO of Browns. I love working with them and trust them implicitly – they bring so much energy, big picture thinking and inspiration and at the same time, somehow manage to convert that energy into practical steps that make a difference right now. Working with Genergy at Browns has already made a big difference. They have helped me formulise what I knew I wanted a business to be. They have helped me connect to my vision in a way that is deeply meaningful for me and also helped me articulate that vision in a way that gets everyone else passionate in the business. Genergy are now working with me and my senior team to create a very different, collaborative and powerful organisation where we have the power of what we have named the 'individual collective'. An organisation that plays into everyone's purpose and passions and brings them to life in the organisation. We still have a long way to go but I can't wait to work with Genergy on what unfolds…
Carole Mackenzie, Head of HR, DK Books
Genergy have been running a Future Leaders Programme at DK for the last 2 years. In that time, they have exceeded our expectations and we are about to put through our third cohort of prospective leaders this year. What you get from Genergy is a wide-ranging expertise and an absolute commitment and passion for what they do. They understand our unique business and have created a truly bespoke programme that fits our culture and our people. And the programme has created real change. Working with Genergy at Browns has already made a big difference. They have helped me formulise what I knew I Leaders who come on the programme experience a huge increase in confidence, a certainty in terms of what they each want to contribute to DK and the belief and drive to achieve it. The result is that people are challenging more, being more proactive and autonomous, starting to take on projects that aren't their ' day job' and challenging the senior leadership of the business so that our business continues to improve. This is all great, however, the real evidence of success is that one year on from our first group, I am still seeing the difference in the people who have been through the programme proving that this isn't just an inspiring course but that the change really sticks.
Marianna Satanas – Vice President of Ecommerce, DKNY
What a true inspiration Lisa Cattell is! I first met Lisa and the team at NET-A-PORTER as part of a big leadership development programme they were running and have then been lucky enough to have her as an Executive Coach too. As soon as you are in the room with Genergy you know that they are different – they get the uniqueness of the business you are in, are high energy and dynamic and magically create a space for transformation and change. Working with Lisa has also had an immeasurable impact on me personally. I am totally confident in myself as a leader, know how to operate powerfully in my own unique way and have moved countries to take up a fantastic new job. I recommend them to others all the time – work with them if you want to create new powerful realities for yourself and your organisation.
Kate Andison, Group Head of Organisational Development & Capability, YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP LTD
Genergy first started developing the leadership at NET-A-PORTER in 2012 at a key stage in the company’s evolution. The business had grown rapidly and needed to evolve the leadership capability across the business worldwide. Genergy developed our leadership at every level of the business, in a way that re-ignited the passion and entrepreneurial spirit that is our DNA while developing a new maturity in our leaders that delivered continued growth. What you get from Genergy is passion and commitment that genuinely ignites leadership capability across the business.

Lisa and Genergy are a breath of fresh air in leadership development – strategic, practical, passionate and great fun to work with! Highly recommended.
Ian Rowlands, Founder Planet Whale.
Working with Lisa has been a landmark experience. It has changed my view of myself as a leader – giving me an ability to have a bigger vision of what's achievable, tremendous clarity of purpose, and to dream big, be decisive and keep hustling! I also now positively engage with everyone I do business with from a place of core values. Honouring our environment, human relations, honestly, laughter and help, have become powerful, unstoppable, energetic tools.
Jo Woods, IPL Market and Sales Operations Manager, DK
This was the best programme I've ever been on, exceeding my expectations in all shapes and forms. The work we did with Genergy was incredibly profound and extremely practical at the same time - they are brilliant at what they do! Lisa and Tash took us on a journey over 10 months which has been life changing for me and for others. I feel like a different person from when I started the programme, and also more like myself than I have in a long time. I have found my passion again and have a deeper understanding of what I really want to do. In the business, I'm operating at a much more strategic level and am really looking forward to the challenges ahead. This is just the tip of the iceberg!
Gabriella Driver, Head of Leadership Development, Post Office Ltd
I first met Lisa in 2008 when she trained me as a workplace coach at a previous company. Fast forward four years and she was the first person I called to lead a team of her associates to provide Executive Coaching services to the most senior leaders at Post Office, Europe's largest retail network. Having built up a strong reputation of trust and credibility, Lisa was invited to exclusively look after the collective development of the Executive Team. As well as her energy, positivity and flexibility to move with the group, the thing that sets Lisa apart is that she genuinely cares about the individuals she is there to develop and will always do the right thing by your business while moving it forward. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lisa and her team at Genergy.
