The Team


CEO SuccessSpark Brand

Jackee Butesta Batanda is a short story writer, journalist and entrepreneur. She is the Founder and Senior Managing Partner of SuccessSpark Brand Ltd. She was inspired to start the company after seeing the influx of many poorly written memoirs, autobiographies and biographies from African social and business leaders flooding the market, which could have been better written and presented, so SuccessSpark Brand provides a variety of writing services to help 'would be' authors bring new stories to the market. 

As an extension of this, she is finishing the construction of a writers' house, The Blue Marble, to provide a safe, intellectual space for writers. In 2019, Jackee was named among top 40 under 40 inspirational Ugandans and was the 2018/2019 continental winner- training and education category at the Women in Business and Government awarded in Johannesburg, South Africa. She is a contributor in the New Daughters of Africa anthology, a seminal body of work that captures voices of 200 women of African descent. The Africa Regional winner of the 2003 Commonwealth short story Competition, her stories have been performed on the BBC World service, BBC3 and radio stations throughout the commonwealth as well as appearing in various international anthologies. She has written for publications including the New York Times, The Boston Globe, Guardian (UK), The Mail & Guardian, The Sunday Times and Sunday Independent (SA) and Aljazeera Magazine. She was the recipient of a 2010 Uganda Young Achievers Award, shortlisted for the 2012 Trust Women Journalist Award and named by the Times (London) in 2012 as one of twenty women shaping the future of Africa. She was named among 39 writers under 40 from Sub-Saharan Africa likely to shape the future of African literature. She has run writing workshops in the US, UK, South Africa, Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya and Malawi.  She is currently at work on a novel, a short story collection and is ghost writing two books.
