Video and Full Interview Text

Leisa: Hello and welcome to a special edition of Women Mean Business, where we're going to take you up close and personal with extraordinary women doing extraordinary things. My guest today is Annette Monks, president of Carlton Staffing and Carltech, but vice-chair of the Greater Houston Partnerships' annual soiree. Welcome, Annette.

Annette: Thank you for having me, Leisa.

Leisa: I'm excited to be here today to talk about the soiree. Tell us about the event.

Annette: It's a fabulous event. It is a gala, which means there is dressing up and there's dancing, and there's a lot of food and a lot of fun. Also, in attendance will be the mayor, local politicians, the councils, philanthropists, the top leaders for some of the largest companies in the city. And so there will be probably 700 people there, usually about that many. And there will be entertainment, and there will be different types of cuisine, international cuisine that you can try. So it's not just one thing. It's not just one sit-down dinner. There's a lot of moving around. There's a silent auction going on. There's a casino, little casino.

Leisa: Oh wow.

Annette: So lots of activity, lots of fun. There's an after party afterwards. So probably it can fit the bill for just about anything you want in a gala, you'll find here.
