Jenae Denne

“The more informed you are, the less arrogant and aggressive you are,” by Nelson Mandela is a quote that Jenae Denne prefers to live by, and one that has shaped her career. “I’ve never let people define me or have perceptions of me. I knew what I had to do and did it,” Denne states.

Jenae Denne is a Conference Services Manager at the Four Seasons Hotel Chicago, previously hosting clients such as the Republican National Committee and currently oversees NBA clients such as the Boston Celtics, the Charlotte Hornets, the Cleveland Cavaliers, and the Golden State Warriors. “I’ve always found planning interesting,” Denne says. “I was dedicated to my job and I would move from to department to department until I found something I loved, which was Catering and Conference Services,” Denne also added.

Jenae Denne is someone I admire and respect not because she is my mother (even though that’s a bonus), but because she is hard-working, respectful, persistent, diligent, beautiful, and wise beyond her years. Her guidance and meticulousness has put me in very great positions in life and I owe all of my successes to her. By watching her I have learned that you cannot control what others do, you can only control what you do.
