“We invited Isaac to address the 400 most important users of our software technology as well 80 people from our own company. I’ve been a fan of Isaac’s work for years, and wanted him to share his latest thinking with the audience. I’m sure that many of the participants discovered new ways of caring about their people, clients, suppliers, and local communities. And, of course, they laughed a lot thanks to Isaac’s unique presentation style. All in all, Isaac’s address helped us as a company and as a brand.” 

– Cyril Daloz, CEO & Founder, iObeya

“Isaac Getz spoke during a masterclass with the leaders of the company. His speech, followed by a question-and-answer session, allowed us to deepen our thinking and actions around our transformation process and the role of the leader in its critical phases. The first session was very positive and well received so we decided to continue discussions in a separate session with the executive team. Isaac’s capacity to listen, his experiences with a diverse range of companies and the quality of his exchanges were appreciated by all participants who left with a deeper grasp of the issues and challenges of the transformation.”

– Thierry Lhullier, General Manager and Director of Operations, UPSA

“Isaac spoke at our annual conference for the country’s pharmaceutical industry leaders. His warm style, humor and, of course, his both professional yet human content won over the audience. In a novel and practical way, he made the audience see the importance of the respect and freedom of employees that leads to the best results. They are eager to meet him again and to hear his new advice for an altruistic enterprise determinedly moving towards freedom and sharing”

“I have been fortunate enough to listen to Isaac speak on his favorite subjects – liberated companies and altruistic enterprises – many times. I feel very grateful to have been given this opportunity. In a French or international context, I have taken part in his keynotes for leaders in France, Romania and Canada. I have always drawn deep learnings from him and feel that I’m far from the only one in the room to feel that. His very direct and practical, hands-on style, accompanied with a touch of very dry humor, perfectly delivers the deep messages and takeaways he looks to share. I recommend everyone to attend one of Isaac’s conferences. You will get something out of it.”

– Jean-Baptiste Dernoncourt, CEO, Carrefour Romania

– Patrick Varenne, Expert in digital transformation

“I chair the Management and Marketing Club, made up of heads of housing authorities interested in management, innovation and marketing. Isaac’s presentation style was crystal clear and by listening to him, the path to becoming a liberated company became clear and obvious. Isaac’s speech made me realize the importance of employee engagement and empowerment: our companies must allow employees who want to, to get involved and take responsibility. Leaving the conference, I told my HR Director that if everything we’d heard seemed so obvious, we had to implement it within our structure. And we did.”

– Pierre-Yves Antras, Head of the Regional Housing Authority

“Several years ago, the Paris Fire Brigade [the French largest military unit composed of 8500 firefighters] held the first week of health, safety, and wellbeing at work training. Carried out with the aim to increase interest in starting an organizational transformation, it seemed obvious to me, as the organizer, to invite Isaac Getz. His speech was very well received by all the firefighters present (battalion commanders, the Chief of Staff, and the Commander of the Paris Fire Brigade, General Boutinaud, the police commanders working with us, and more). “Cheeky! But it’s good because it encourages our thinking!” were the words the general said to me. Indeed, for a 200-year old military institution, we must be daring and question our practices of governance and management.”

– Styve Beauchet, Head of health, safety and wellbeing at work, Paris Fire Brigade

“As the Dean of Paris Descartes University Medical School, I invited Prof. Getz to address a group of healthcare leaders from HMOs, hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies we collaborate with. His speech on how to build an organization based on trust, freedom of employee initiative struck a very important chord with the audience. It transformed the way these leaders, and also myself, think about the factors of employee engagement and highlighted how a liberated organization can result in better well-being and stronger performance.”

– Prof. Gerard Friedlander, Dean of Paris Descartes University Medical School

“A heartfelt thank you; It’s refreshing to experience a webinar of such high quality; Isaac Getz is always so selfless and passionate; Thank you Mr Getz for your insight, it has restored our confidence and optimism for our future.”

Testimonials for Mentoring and Advising

“Dr. Isaac Getz was introduced to me by Rich Teerlink, formerly Chairman and CEO of Harley Davidson.  From our initial meeting 15 years ago and through an ongoing relationship over that time, I have watched Dr. Getz to be a keen observer of the deeper nuances of human relationships in business. He combines scholarly clinical thinking, an uncanny personal intuitive ability and a fun and engaging style to his work, advising and mentoring business leaders around the globe. I have benefitted from his books and his mentorship, building my own ‘liberated’ company into a global leader and a successful IPO in 2020.
While I would commend Isaac to any Chairperson or CEO who is interested in unlocking the deeper passion and potential hidden within their organizations and to feel a deeper sense of personal reward in doing so, I would also encourage any Board of Directors considering the choice of the next CEO, to consult Isaac on the all important ‘inner factors’ that will be essential for the next generation of servant leaders.”

– Jeff Westphal, Chairman of Vertex, Inc.

Michelin_logo-700x255

“I contacted Isaac a year after Michelin launched a worldwide project to transform work organisation and management. Isaac was kind enough to listen to me, to delicately share his doubts and his recommendations. We then met on multiple occasions to discuss our experience, Isaac showing a lot of respect for our choices. He was not a “guru”; he was at our side as an advisor helping us identify effective solutions given our context and culture, all while encouraging us to think differently. He helped us to be more daring. And I think we have been!”

– Bertrand Ballarin, Michelin, Head of industrial and labor relations and Head of Michelin transformation process
