Jessica Huie MBE
Jessica is an entrepreneur and the Author of PURPOSE, the new edition with five new chapters charting her mid pandemic move to the island of Jamaica, was published by Hay House in November 2021.
She enjoyed a glittering career as a journalist and publicist and has worked with some of the world’s best-known stars and business people, including Samuel L. Jackson, Simon Cowell, Kelly Rowland & Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle. She founded and ran influential boutique agency JHPR for ten years.
In 2006 Jessica launched Color Blind Cards, a multi-award winning multicultural greeting card company which drove an early conversation around the importance of ethnic representation in retail and became the first independent brand to secure a high-street presence for black cards in the UK. The brand went on to secure distribution in the US and South Africa.
Jessica grew up in a West London council estate, was expelled from school with four GCSEs aged fifteen and became a mother aged seventeen.
In 2016, when Jessica’s father was diagnosed with terminal cancer, for the first time in her life, she stopped doing and became present. Her first book, PURPOSE, and transformation evolved from the profound space between life and death in which she found herself as a carer for her beloved father.
This is going to be such a nourishing conversation. Join us online
