Venus Kent Profile Image
Corporate Headshot 2005


I earned my bachelor of business administration from Ohio University and master of business administration from Ohio State University. Over the last three decades, I have worked in several industries. Throughout them all I’ve maintained a high level of customer service, the hallmark of my career.   I excelled at thinking “outside the box” to see the possibilities in all situations.

My longest employment tenure was with the Cincinnati USA Convention and Visitors Bureau. I became one of the top three sales managers, consistently exceeding my annual sales goal and landing some of largest conventions in Cincinnati’s history including the 2012 World Choir Games, an international choral competition that had never been held in the United States, and 2014 American Legion Convention.  At the conclusion of the World Choir Games I decided I had nothing left to prove to the leadership of the organization, so I resigned to pursue a career as an independent licensee of HelmsBriscoe

Now instead of competing against other cities to bring meetings and conventions to Cincinnati I work for a dedicated group of associations to source their meetings and conventions to any place they want in the world, admittedly I have not placed any internationally, yet.  I understand the importance of finding the right facilities, pricing strategies and the intangibles a destination should possess in order to maximize the success of your program, so if you need assistance finding a location for your next event fill out this Meeting Assessment Form and email it to My passion for service, integrity, and hard work hard will not let you down.

Consulting and Special Projects

In addition to sourcing meetings I can be contracted to handle special projects on a short or long term basis. I’ve managed website and social media accounts, virtual offices, designed program books or logos, managed registrations just to name a few of my contracted services.  I have a vast skill set that can be applied in multiple endeavors, so if your organization has a need that can’t be filled with current staff, give me a call, (513) 620-4130 or email

Due to the devastatingly negative impact the Covid-19 pandemic has had on the meetings industry I have added a Vollara distributorship to JTK Consultants, LLC.  ActivePure® Technology thru scientific testing has been demonstrated to reduce airborne and surface contaminants.
