    Multi-award-winning entrepreneur, Zoe Jackson MBE, set up the Living the Dream Performing Arts Company at the age of 16 in 2006 to inspire young people and to subsidise her own performing arts education. Over the last nine years, Living the Dream has grown to include a school of performing arts, a professional dance company, a talent agency, and a charity, the Dream Foundation.

    Zoe is passionate about championing young talent, creating access to the arts, entertaining audiences and inspiring young people to live their dreams. Through the arts and enterprise, she campaigns to raise awareness and support for the challenges facing young people. Zoe’s strength as a leader and an inspiring role model is in her passion for engaging and empowering young people.

    In June 2015, Zoe was honoured in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List with an award of the Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire for services to young entrepreneurs and the performing arts. This year Zoe also received the first ‘Queen’s Young Leaders Award’ recognising 60 young people across the Commonwealth who are making a difference in their communities.

She also recently won the Creative Industries Entrepreneur of the Year with the Great British Entrepreneurs.

    Sir Richard Branson has given Zoe his support and endorsement after she was selected to share a platform with him to speak on behalf of young entrepreneurs in the UK. She worked with him and Virgin to campaign for the Government’s start up loans scheme and was instrumental in influencing Government policy, persuading David Cameron to launch the scheme. She is an ambassador for Virgin Media Pioneers and Virgin Start Up to inspire young entrepreneurs. Zoe is regularly asked to speak on television and radio about young people, entrepreneurs and education.
