Carly Fiorina is famed as the former CEO and Chairman of Hewlett Packard. Making headlines as the first woman to lead a Fortune Top 20 company and named as the Most Powerful Woman in American Business by Fortune, Carly is now booked as a female motivational speaker, covering topics such as high-performance culture, diversity in today’s workplace, unlocking potential and more.

The former CEO of America’s 11th largest company, Carly revolutionised the technology industry as a woman in a position of power. Appointed in 1999, Carly sat at the helm of Hewlett Packard during a recession, nonetheless steering the business to success. Also during her tenure, HP was recognised on the 100 Best Corporate Citizens list and as one of the World’s Most Respected Companies. After her retirement from HP, Carly became the Chairman of Good360, the Chairman of the External Advisory Board of the CIA and the Chairman of Carly Fiorina Enterprises.

Carly has also been the Fund Chair of the One Woman Initiative, an organisation created to empower women to make a difference globally and in their local community, as when one woman is empowered the whole world can benefit. Carly has also acted as a role model in politics, formerly standing as a candidate in the 2016 US Presidential Elections. Other prominent roles of Carly’s include Chairman of Unlocking Potential, Chair of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and President of the Consumer Products Sector for Lucent.

Having ‘obliterated the glass ceiling’ with her appointment as CEO of HP, Carly is now a popular choice as a female motivational speaker for events. Revolutionising the technology industry, Carly has made it more commonplace for women to be appointed in high-profile roles and she has made it her mission to ensure that women are empowered to make a difference in their personal and professional lives. Also passionate about creating diversity in the workplace, Carly is keen to see that the gender divide within top positions is more equal and that other women too can smash through glass ceilings. When looking for an empowering female motivational speaker, Carly Fiorina is a fantastic choice.
