I'm Brandon Relph,
CEO of the goCreative Group
At just 16 Brandon Relph is one of the world’s leading youth marketers and the youngest CEO in the United Kingdom (according to HMRC occupation records).
Back in 2014, when Brandon was 13, he turned his love for the video game Minecraft into a job with his business partner Florian Funke.
Now, three years later, Brandon and Florian have built an international group of companies (goCreative Group) that build and create targeted content for under 20-year-olds.
Described as “awesome” by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak Brandon has become the go-to guy when brands big and small need to market to the youth. Because of his age and maturity, he is able to curate campaigns like no-one else. He has a completely different approach to content creation and marketing.
Brandon has been featured in a variety of news outlets globally, with 25m+ printed copies of his story. He has had appearances in the most major UK newspapers, the Rolling Stone, the LAD Bible and Vogue just to name a few.
He has also picked up numerous awards in his career so far being described as a “marketer who has done what most marketers hope to do in their lifetime”, something that Brandon is very proud of.
He has also been lucky enough to talk to thousands of people at events around the globe ranging from his hometown Eastbourne to the world's second largest tech-conference in Dubai. Book me to speak >
In this next year, Brandon’s aim is to create a variety of new content for the internet and for people in real life to enjoy which will not only help them improve their workflow and their life but hopefully, inspire them to take the next big leap in their career no matter their age or background.

Who are you?
This talk covers the importance of branding, how to do it right and what you need to do to make your brand ready for the next generation.
Brandon offers a variety of consultancy services for companies big and small.
Whether you are just starting out or a well-established brand, he is fast becoming the go-to guy for anything youth related.
Under 20-year-olds are one of the most valuable generations to target. They have some of the largest buying power and will grow up to be the first generation to have had the internet for their entire life. They are the most connected generation ever with their reliance on the internet being key in reaching them. However; along with this, they have become the most brand aware generation and it is key that a different approach that the normal is taken to target them.
As a leader in the field of Generation Z marketing, Brandon offers the best insight on targeting the youth. Often marketers who make claims to know how to target this age range often look over key things because they try to use old strategies for millennials - these simply don’t work.
Because of his age and experience, Brandon has picked up a wealth of knowledge which he would love to share. What you gain from a consultation won’t just be valuable for in the moment, but will be something that you will use for years to come.
Brandon urges you to get in touch to see what would work for you.
