Speaker Resources

Few could have predicted that Carly Fiorina would become one of America's most visible and influential corporate leaders as well as one of the world's most distinguished business innovators. She is a prominent thought-leader, best-selling author and top policy advisor to both the private and public sectors. A self-made woman, Carly started her business career as a secretary and went on to become the first woman to lead a Fortune 20 company.

Carly served as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Hewlett-Packard Company (HP) from 1999 to 2005, leading the reinvention of the legendary company, tripling its rate of innovation, achieving market leadership, transforming its cost structure and accelerating growth. Despite controversy and opposition, she successfully acquired and integrated Compaq Computer, in what is now seen as the most successful high-tech merger in history. Under her leadership, HP doubled in revenues to $88 Billion and generated 11 patents a day, with significantly improved profitability and cash flow. HP became a leader in every product category and market segment in which it competed.

Currently, Carly is a highly-sought business and political commentator, speaker and strategic counsel to companies and governments worldwide. She is also the first-ever civilian Vice Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee, supporting Senate candidates dedicated to enabling private sector growth, innovation and competitiveness.

    Carly Fiorina, A Woman Of Accomplishment

    By Cal Thomas

    (Townhall) - When people speak of "the first woman president" they usually mean Hillary Clinton, who is expected to announce her candidacy soon.

    But there's another woman, a Republican, who will shortly vie for the top job. She is Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett-Packard. The polls don't register much support for Fiorina, but if people listen to what she has to say, particularly about Hillary Clinton, that could change.

    In an interview, Fiorina told me that, unlike a male candidate, she could better take on Hillary Clinton: "No matter what that man says, she will play the gender card or the war on women card. She won't be able to do that with me."

    Carly Fiorina: Environmentalists To Blame For 'Man-Made' Drought In California

    (The Huffington Post) WASHINGTON -- Former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina on Monday blamed environmentalists for what she called a "man-made" drought in California, which has led to the state's first water restrictions.

    “With different policies over the last 20 years, all of this could be avoided,” Fiorina, a likely 2016 Republican presidential contender, said in an interview with radio host Glenn Beck. “Despite the fact that California has suffered from droughts for millennia, liberal environmentalists have prevented the building of a single new reservoir or a single new water conveyance system over decades during a period in which California’s population has doubled.”
