About Jo Fairley

Despite only having 6 ‘O’ Levels to my name, I have edited two magazines (I was the UK’s youngest-ever magazine editor), and gone on to found the UK’s ‘coolest food brand’, Green & Black’s Chocolate (as recognised in the Coolbrands Survey for the 11 consecutive years).

Today I travel the world, passionately sharing the rollercoaster story of how Green & Black’s went from an idea in a Portobello bedroom to a global ethical brand, speaking to an incredibly wide range of businesses and organisations, from Legal & General to Vodafone via Barclays, HSBC, universities and business schools, entrepreneurs groups, conferences and awards ceremonies. (Taking a Covid-related pause in 2020, but looking forward to picking up again when large gatherings are permitted.)

I am now a serial entrepreneur having opened an award-winning organic bakery and one-stop organic food shop, Judges Bakery, in Hastings, and The Wellington Centre, a world-class wellbeing destination.
