Disrupt Milwaukee/Madison Founder
Jenie Gao was one of the Disrupt Madison 3.0 speakers for our third event in Madison this past June. Jenie Gao speaks in depth on subjects that may be tough or uncomfortable to address, in a welcoming way so the audience feels like they can be a part of the conversation. She has a talent to see what is difficult to see, and helps others see it too. She believes ideals are goals and pragmatic thinking and planning is just how you get there. Jenie truly practices what she preaches; working with her it's clear what she shares with her audience and her actions are in alignment. This authenticity wins audiences; it makes her a great speaker. I love working with Jenie and highly recommend her!
Artist Jenie Gao's murals and prints are outstanding. Her focus on creating high-quality, thoughtful work is apparent across media and projects. She's also a tireless advocate for the arts. Jenie is extremely generous in sharing her skills and knowledge to educate and encourage other artists. I appreciated her clear, personable style of teaching during the fact-filled 'Managing Time + Money' workshop that she led at Madison's Arts + Literature Laboratory in May 2019. Her dedication to her work and the integrity with which she operates are hugely inspiring.
