Jessica Huie MBE
Jessica Huie MBE is an entrepreneur and the Author of Bestseller PURPOSE published by Hay House, Find your truth and embrace your calling. Jessica enjoyed a glittering career as a journalist and publicist and has worked with some of the world’s biggest stars and business people, including Samuel L. Jackson, Simon Cowell, Kelly Rowland & Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle. Jessica founded and ran influential boutique agency JHPR.co.uk 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.
Jessica grew up in a council estate, was expelled from school with four GCSEs aged fifteen and became a mother aged seventeen.
Labelled one of Britain’s Most Inspiring Entrepreneurs by the Evening Standard. Jessica runs monthly workshops at The British Library for small and micro business owners keen to raise the profile of their brand with integrity. In 2014, Jessica was honoured with an MBE for entrepreneurship and her contribution to diversity.
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.
In Purpose, Jessica invites us to reconnect with who we are beneath the layers of roles, titles and belief systems. Our experiences and social conditioning determine the narratives we hold about ourselves and our lives, and in an era where so many of us define our identity by the title on our business card, Jessica promises that “stripped back is where we meet ourselves.”
Passionate about challenging the ideologies which we hold around success, Jessica has shared the insights from the awakening from which PURPOSE evolved, everywhere from corporations such as Google, EY, Grant Thornton, Virgin Media and Credit Suisse, to community projects, schools and charities.
Jessica’s first book Purpose, find your truth and embrace your calling is out now published by HayHouse.
