Contracts are her specialty and through artful negotiations, clients are assured they have an advocate on their side ensuring they get the best price and concessions for their program. Kenna’s love of the industry and creative passion for planning events led her to form Global Events in 1997. As a true entrepreneur, she is always willing to think out of the box to help a client achieve their goals. Her clients have come to know, if Kenna says it will get done, it will, no matter what it takes!
