Is Art still Elitist?
As a company JHPR delight in representing the brave groundbreakers, the inspiring innovators and the UK’s thought leaders.
Mackenzie Thorpe, the dyslexic artist from Middlesbrough who went from working in the Shipyards to having his work owned by JK Rowling and HM Queen Elizabeth 11, is just that individual. With his original work now selling for up to £65,000 Thorpe is an ardant pioneer for making art accessible to all. Here the creative genius talks elitism in art for Raconteur here
Michael Jacobsen the schoolboy trader
It’s a rare 16 year old that begins trading on the stock market while still at school, but then Jacobsen is not your average serial entrepreneur. Producing Dirty Dancing on stage, the world’s highest grossing show at £750 million, is a mere snippet of his success since taking his school uniform off some decades ago. Michael launches his Global Entrepreneurs Academy in September, targeting central and Eastern European entrepreneurs wishing to launch economy boosting businesses in the UK.

Sir Bob Geldof rocks the room
The iconic Sir Bob Geldof left our Rockstar Group’s audience of entrepreneurs forever inspired with his hour long key note last month, encouraging attendees to “set sail from the safe harbor!” in pursuit of their business passion. As inspiring speeches go, Geldof was amongst the unforgettable.
