There are a number of mission-driven consulting firms in the philanthropic and social change arena.

Carly Fiorina, Founder of Unlocking Potential Foundation and Author of Find Your Way: Unleash Your Power and Highest Potential, Joins Denver Frederick

Social problems are best addressed when the private, governmental, and nonprofit sectors are all at the table working together. So, it stands to reason that an individual who’s been the CEO of a Fortune 50 company, run for president of the United States, and has founded and led several nonprofit organizations might have a fresh, interesting, and holistic approach to solving problems, and my next guest absolutely does. She is Carly Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, a Republican presidential candidate in 2016, the Founder of the Unlocking Potential Foundation, as well as the author of Find Your Way: Unleash Your Power and Highest Potential.
