Jo Fairley 

Green and Black's Co-Founder and Leading Entrepreneur

Jo Fairley is an entrepreneur best known for creating the Green & Black’s chocolate brand in 1991, which she ran with her husband before it was bought by Cadbury in 2005. 

The first-ever product to carry the UK Fairtrade Mark, for the past nine years, Green & Black’s has been hailed as the ‘coolest food brand’ in Britain (according to the Cool Brands Survey), and is now worth $100 million a year.

Jo is in demand as a brand consultant, alongside her own ventures which have included an organic bakery, natural food store and a nine-room salon and wellbeing centre in her home town of Hastings. Most recently, she created and launched The Perfume Society, which works with the fragrance industry seeking to improve individuals’ sense of smell in a pleasurable and engaging way.

An award winning author and journalist, Jo has written for a wide range of newspapers and magazines from The Times to The Mail on Sunday’s YOU Magazine, and as a ‘Wonder Woman’ business guru for Telegraph Woman Online.


Ryan Holiday

 Author, Marketer, and Entrepreneur

Ryan is a renowned marketing powerhouse-turned-motivational-speaker who has attracted fans from every imaginable discipline and is regarded as one of the most influential speakers of his generation.

Ryan was the former Director of Marketing at American Apparel where his work in advertising is internationally known. Others may know him as best selling author whose books have sold over 1.3 million copies and have been translated into over 30 different languages.

When it comes to motivation, Holiday makes listeners take stock of their lives and careers through the timeless lens of an ancient philosophy, stoicism. His book The Daily Stoic distills the ancient wisdom of the stoic philosophers into 366 practical meditations, each meant to enrich and enliven our daily lives—at work, on the field, and in our relationships.

And in the now cult-classic The Obstacle Is the Way, he shows us how to turn even the most insurmountable obstacles into advantages, inspired by an ageless set of philosophical principles used by icons from John D. Rockefeller to Amelia Earhart, Richard Wright to Steve Jobs. Forbes calls it “an inspiring read for anyone faced with adversity” that can “save years of future angst.” Publishers Weekly argues that “Holiday’s performance is commanding and optimistic, sure to inspire readers to take new perspective on their apparent obstacles.”
