Author of Bestseller PURPOSE
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.

Your life is meant to feel.
Find your truth.

Fourteen years ago 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.
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, 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 was an absolute pleasure to have speak at our Purpose event. Every word spoken comes from such an honest and authentic place that the room couldn’t help but be lifted by a warm glow and more positive outlook. Even after the event we continued to receive praise on Jessica’s behalf for her wonderful words of wisdom on the benefits of living a purpose-led life. We can’t thank Jessica enough for joining us on our journey for Purpose!”

The Transformative Power of Purpose
Purpose is not another thing we need to do. Purpose is a state of being. A set of intentional values hemmed to what truly matters to us as individuals or organisations, which we can connect to in order to give our lives and work new meaning.
Living and working with a purpose will always benefit the whole. It’s about living and working with a desire to benefit something bigger than just ourselves and when embraced authentically… the impact is transformative.
Why Storytelling is the key to driving inclusion through connection – and how to tell your own story
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 and our value by the title on our business card and our roles, It’s time to reconnect with who we are beneath our layers and start to dispel false ideas about our separateness and connect through sharing our stories.
Leading without a mask – Authentic leadership of the future
It’s time for leadership which is courageous enough to be vulnerable. Leadership confident enough to loosen its grip on hierarchy and create brave spaces, where everyone feels safe enough to be heard and able to share what is meaningful to them. It’s time for doing versus saying, and the creation of a vision which is magnetic enough to break through cynicism.
It’s time to challenge our very definition of success, and starting as individuals and organisations, to shape a new definition with purpose at its core.
A definition that holds a social consciousness – the wellbeing of all, at its heart. A success that measures impact not just in profit, but in the impact of its purpose, its ability to improve lives, create opportunities and fulfilment, inspire change and drive progressive conversation.
Don’t sell…Show up – Authentic power versus marketing
When your work has purpose at its core you don’t need to sell – You just need to show up. It’s time to park contrived marketing strategies with predetermined outcomes and shift from selling to service. When we focus on how we can better serve our audience there is a distinctly different essence to our output.
The result? A powerful opportunity to go beyond words and create connections with your audience which convert. In an age where purpose has the power to engage, to inspire to transform. Purpose doesn’t need to mislead with marketing or convince with campaigns. Purpose goes beyond intellect and speaks straight into the heart, and from that space you don’t win customers…you create ambassadors.
The Power of Presence - Why doing less is the key to both productivity and collective sustainability
From incessant action to a life in which being is prized over doing and inspiration cultivated in equal measure to strategy, how a return to our innate wisdom has the power to transform our lives and work.
