As one of the most trusted conservative voices in American politics, Carly Fiorina stands at the very forefront of geopolitics and industry. Her message to Americans everywhere emphasises leadership, service, and patriotism.

Few could have predicted that 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. 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.

In 1999, Carly Fiorina was recruited to HP to save a struggling company that had become a bloated, inept bureaucracy that had failed to meet expectations for 9 quarters. As CEO of HP, she was the first woman to lead a Fortune 50 business and the first outsider to lead HP. During the worst technology recession in 25 years, she focused on innovation and leading again. While lots of other tech companies went out of business altogether, Carly saved 80,000 jobs and would grow the company to 160,000 jobs.

Carly Fiorina was named most powerful woman in business by Fortune Magazine in 2003, a position she held for five years. In 2004, she was included in the Time 100 ranking of “most influential people in the world today” and named tenth on the Forbes list of The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women.
