Gennike A. Mayers

Gennike A. Mayers is the author of CARICOM: Good Offices, Good Neighbours (2021) and host of the forthcoming podcast of the same name by Victory & Noble. She is also the unofficial ambassador of Tobago, the smaller of the twin island Republic of Trinidad and Tobago; co-founder of the Caribbean Community of Venture Capitalists; and a pioneer who is tackling the burden created by 11 annual metric tons of sargassum seaweed washing up on pristine Caribbean shorelines. Through her global Spargassum oil and soaps brand, she is turning waste into wealth for the Caribbean Community. Every now and then, she runs towards disasters, where most would run away, as part of humanitarian responses by the Red Cross and the United Nations.
