Washington, DC — Carolyn E. Howell, Founder and CEO of Fun Company Events and Director of Sterling Women of Washington DC is inviting all women entrepreneurs and professionals in the DC area to an amazing event in August. On Wednesday, August 10, 2016, she will present Terri Tolliver as guest speaker at her power networking luncheon. The luncheon will take place on Wednesday from 11am to 2pm at Clyde’s Restaurant Gallery Place, 707 “7th” Street, NW, Washington, DC 20001.
Her first assignment as a special projects producer, working at Fox 5 DC was to produce a half hour documentary on the AIDS pandemic in Africa. It was a topic her team tackled before it became the “cause de jour.” She traveled to 4 countries in 16 days with former anchor, Tracey Neale and came back with stories that changed lives, hers included. They received 2 Emmy Awards, a Murrow, a Presidential commendation from Bill Clinton, and a $5,000 award from the World Health Organization to start a non profit and build a school for girls on the Masai reserve in Kenya. That’s right, it’s a goal they reached before Oprah! Not bad for her first producing gig ever.
Terri went on to add 13 more regional Emmys to her collection as well as 2 National Emmys. She produced stories on everything from hand washing temperatures in restaurants to underground lap dance clubs to pigeon racing. She’s done just about everything. Including posing as a stripper to bust a local illegal club owner who set up shop in a residential neighborhood.
