Hi there. So glad you decided to stop by. I am Dr. Phyllis Fein, Chief Innovation Officer & Educational Director at the ReDefeinery, your inspirational hotspot for all things delightful and unexpected. I created the ReDefeinery to encourage everyone who is passionate about fresh ideas and all things innovative to share in a living room learning set up.

Check out the options designed to change your knowledge expand your mind. Open new doors. We all deserve more than 15 minutes of fame … there’s an encounter for everyone … so have fun, explore, and get re-imagined.
Some might consider me a professional marketer because of my decade’s long careers in fashion, beauty and consumer marketing with L’Oreal, Banana Boat, Saks Fifth Avenue and Estee Lauder while others refer to me as Professor Fein for my 20+ years as a university educator and training in trend insight at NYU Stern, MIT and Harvard. However, I envision myself as thankful for each and every chance I get to grow my brain and know-how.
My intense commitment to studying disruptive trends and discovering opportunity gaps in our culture has inspired me to dedicate the last five years to understanding intentionality and focus on how society as a whole can be nurtured and engaged to be better. I inherited my inspirational spirit from my family of journeymen and women who see obstacles to climb over not turn back from toward mediocrity. I founded the ReDefeinery to reflect the educational transformation so I/we can grow and re imagine with others … experts, innovators and share insights and visions on the future. The ReDefeinery captures the essence of all of the encouragement of possibilities for I believe it is time to break all the rules of learning and share expertise.
