Jessica Huie MBE
Jessica Huie went from being a teenage mother, expelled from school and living in a hostel, to having a glittering career in Public Relations, working with some of the world’s biggest stars and business people including Samuel L. Jackson, Simon Cowell, Sir Bob Geldof and Meghan Markle.
When she set up her first business Color blind cards, it started an early national conversation around diversity in retail and is credited as the first independent multicultural greeting card line to be stocked in the UK high-street, earning her invitations to No.10 Downing street with the UK Prime Minister and an MBE award for services to entrepreneurship – all by the age of 34.
Jessica Huie founded the award-winning public relations boutique agency JHPR and has worked with world-renowned clients. Jessica received an MBE in 2014 for services to entrepreneurship and her positive influence on the community.
On the outside Jessica’s life was a fairy-tale of triumph, but she spent years struggling with an internal view of herself which left her plagued by depression.
In 2016 a miracle shifted her lifelong belief system into an unequivocal knowing that our body and identity is merely casing to the truth of who we are – and her life and outlook changed forever.
Having redesigned her life through entrepreneurship, Jessica is passionate about supporting startups such as Connect Mentors and is a champion of social mobility and inclusion, sitting on the boards of several national charities.
As ambassador for The British Library, Jessica hosts monthly PR workshops at the historic venue, training small business owners on how to embrace visibility and promote their purpose-driven business. In 2016, Jessica launched the acclaimed annual Passion into Pounds event alongside Lifestyle and parenting blogger Vicki Psarias ‘Honest Mum.’
Winner of the Daily Mail’s Enterprising Young Brit award and labelled one of Britain’s Most inspiring entrepreneurs by the Evening Standard, Jessica enjoys an international public speaking career and sits on Glamour Magazine’s Power List as one of the UK’s most influential women.
