This short review highlights select examples of enantioselective Lewis base promoted reactions that use tertiary amine (cinchona alkaloids, isothioureas and DMAP/PPY derivatives) or NHC catalysts and employ aryloxide promoted catalyst turnover from an acyl ammonium or azolium intermediate. This review focuses on the range of strategies that have been developed within this area, and discusses their evolution and context
