A serendipitous meeting, brought about by a BBC Platinum Jubilee news story, has resulted in lawyer and strategic business adviser, Andrew Eborn, President of Octopus TV Ltd developing international opportunities for Eleanor’s business.
For many years Andrew Eborn has empowered companies to face the challenges of changing markets, maximise the return on their rights as well as assisting with the strategic development of their businesses.
Eleanor pointed out “I am very excited at even the thought of the possible opportunities being created as a result of my partnership with Andrew Eborn. What started as a wonderful introduction by the BBC has already turned into a strong creative partnership. I’m very grateful to the BBC for opening such a door into a world of new opportunities with Andrew especially at a time when I was at a loss as to where to turn having suffered artwork theft on a global level. 2022 was an incredible, rollercoaster year in my career, but 2023 is already proving to be something else as Andrew and I join forces to share even more of my artwork with the world, entering into fabulous collaborations with leading world names. Andrew and I make a formidable team – an artist’s dream.’
Andrew Eborn, who has been instrumental in growing many major brands commented “I am thrilled to be working with Eleanor reviewing the various opportunities including from international licensing. Together we intend to develop a global brand, building on the success of Eleanor’s work to date, whilst protecting Eleanor’s artistic rights and integrity. I very much look forward to hearing from anyone interested in exploring the exciting licensing opportunities.”
