When Genein Letford was in the third grade, she was labeled a special education student because of her speech impediment; she stuttered when speaking. Her mother insisted she learn to play an instrument, and she chose the trumpet, mainly because it was one of the least expensive instruments to rent. As an overcomer, she is now a TED-x speaker inspiring people all around the world! 

Genein is an award-winning global speaker, educator, podcaster, best-selling author, and corporate trainer on creative thinking and intercultural creativity.  She is the Founder and Chief Creative Officer of CAFFE Strategies, LLC which is a consulting, coaching, and training company that trains C-Suite executives and employees to create sustainable organizational equity and inclusion strategies, based on neuroscience, while unleashing their innovative thinking for themselves and in their businesses.

Her unique message intersects creative thinking development with building a culture of inclusion and belonging. She believes creative literacy is a critical skill and she is often called ‘America’s Creativity Coach’ for her work in reigniting creativity in our workforce while having fun! Genein is a Certified Virtual Presenter (CVP) by eSpeakers inc. 

"Today’s session on Intercultural Creativity™ was great! Your energy was wonderful. The management of the technology, the ability to chat with multiple smaller groups of people by topic and the very usable tools were all highlights for me. Thanks for helping make this team better."
~ Brian Kaplan, Kaiser Permanente Vice President – National Benefits Administration

Genein is a driving force in student access, creative development, and financial literacy. A recent TEDx speaker, she believes every child deserves the opportunity to develop their entrepreneurial and creative talents and contribute positively to the community.

After paying off almost $100,000 of debt, she realized the importance of early financial literacy, opportunity recognition, and telling your story of purpose to become a thought leader. 

Genein has a new best-selling book called: "The 7 Gems of Intercultural Creativity", and her international best-selling book 'From Debt to Destiny: Creating Financial Freedom from the Inside Out' is continuing to help many discover their creative gifts while achieving financial abundance.  She speaks around the world on these topics and remains committed to preparing the next generation for a life of success!
