Jo Fairley

Our first Podcast Live stop of 2020 will be with the inspirational Jo Fairley, co-founder of the organic chocolate brand Green & Blacks.

Leaving school at 16 and becoming the UK’s youngest ever (!) magazine editor by 23, Jo is best known for co-founding Green & Blacks but after selling the company in 2005, she has become somewhat of a serial entrepreneur. Jo has founded numerous other businesses including the award winning Judges Bakery (an organic and natural food store/bakery), The Wellington Health & Wellbeing Centre (a boutique nine-room wellbeing centre) and The Perfume Society.

Jo is a highly-acclaimed motivational speaker and will be sharing her inspirational story of Green & Black’s, alongside her business insights as a brand consultant for a wide range of start-ups and household names too.
