Former Hewlett- Packard CEO Carly Fiorina will be in Australia early next year to deliver a presentation on leadership.
Fiorina will be joined by former US President Bill Clinton and former Walt Disney CEO Michael Eisner.
All three speakers are part of a series of mini, one-day forums which are part of the World Economic Forum to be held in Switzerland in January.
The mini forums are being held in Australia for the first time and will take place in both Sydney and Melbourne in early February.
The forum theme is Thought Leadership.
HP's former CEO reached a deal with the Penguin Group earlier this year to pen a memoir about her dramatic career.
Due out in late 2006, Fiorina had a turbulent, five-year run as HP's CEO and the book is expected to combine information about her career with her personal views on topics such as leadership, how women can thrive in business, and how technology will reshape the world.
Fiorina rose from being a secretary to joining Fortune Magazine's 50 Most Powerful Women in Business list. She picked up a $US21 million severance package when she left HP.
