Meet Gen-Zedder Brandon Relph

19-year-old Brandon Relph is one of the UK’s leading entrepreneurs and the world’s leading youth specialist.

Sadly, The Platform has had to be postponed to later this year because of Covid-19, but HOT’s Erica Smith caught up with Brandon in cyberspace to learn what makes him tick.
