Women In Web Weekly Round-Up

WEEKLY ROUND UP TEMP

Welcome to our weekly round-up of what’s been happening in the world of Women In Web.

This week, I was honored to feature an exclusive Q&A with Washington D.C. based writer, interviewer, broadcaster, photographer and public speaker, Carol Ross Joynt. As a writer and journalist, Carol’s career is one that inspires me, and it was fascinating to speak to her about her professional work as a ‘news outlier’ and her time as a producer for programs including The Charlie Rose Show and Larry King Live. Equally as fascinating is Carol’s insight into her life following the death of her husband in 1997, and her subsequent fight with the IRS to gain ‘innocent spouse’ status due to tax fraud by her late husband. Carol inherited the landmark Georgetown restaurant Nathans, and it was here that she created the fantastic Q&A Café. Nathans closed in 2009 and the Q&A Café is now held at The George Town Club and you can watch some of Carol’s fascinating interviews with some of Washington’s most notable individuals here.

If her Q&A isn’t already fascinating enough Carol is generously giving away a signed copy of her memoir Innocent Spouse for one lucky reader! To read the Q&A and enter the giveaway click here.

We also had the pleasure this week of interviewing Manon Antoniazzi, CEO of Visit Wales. Manon has had a distinguished career, working at institutions including the National Assembly for Wales, BBC Wales and for HRH The Prince of Wales. To find out more about Manon’s work and why you should visit Wales click here.

We’re thrilled to be partnering with Mightybell as one of our Advocates. Keep your eyes peeled for great Mightybell news and features with individuals that use their community.
