Chairman and CEO, Hewlett-Packard Company (1999-2005) and Best-Selling Author

A passionate, articulate advocate for problem-solving, innovation, and effective leadership, Carly Fiorina was the first woman ever to lead a Fortune 50 company when she was recruited to lead Hewlett Packard (HP) in 1999. Under her leadership, revenue grew, innovation tripled, growth quadrupled, and HP became the 11th largest company in the U.S. Her breadth of experience spans from marketing to manufacturing; from sales to strategic planning; from HR to R&D from finance to engineering to supply chain and logistics. She has led teams and organisations in the private, public and social sectors. Today she is the founder and Chairman of Carly Fiorina Enterprises, and of Unlocking Potential, a non-profit organisation that invests in human potential by supporting local leaders who are solving problems in their communities and places of work.

Carly will speak at the WOBI World Business Forum in Sydney on September 7 and 8 about LEADING ORGANISATIONAL TRANSFORMATION including:

  • How to increase the problem-solving and leadership capacity of organisations
  • What it takes to help others reach their highest leadership potential
  • A blueprint for navigating uncertainty, managing change and building a high-performance culture
  • What it takes to drive transformational change
