JENNY HALPERN PRINCE
CEO & Founder
Jenny founded Halpern from her kitchen table over 25 years ago. An entrepreneur and leader in the PR industry, she quickly established a reputation for delivering outstanding results and having a little black book to be revered. Jenny instigated “influencer” marketing with one of the first celebrity divisions and clients spanning Burberry, Sainsburys and Unilever.
Jenny co-founded charity, The Lady Garden Foundation which raises funds for the Royal Marsden for gynae cancers. The charity has a highly irreverent tone of voice with a strapline #whatdoyoucallyours but is on a mission to raise huge awareness for a cancer that is a silent killer. Funds raised to date are at almost £1m. Jenny also founded Access Aspiration, the education charity that provides work placements in London state and Academy schools and is now on the board of the Mayors Fund which has taken over the charity.
