In the Divided by Brand spotlight on this episode is Andy Platt, a former headteacher best known to myself for his passion and involvement in No Horizon the musical. Andy wrote the musical alongside his full time role in education, then twice gave up that career to pursue this passion project. No Horizon was originally created in 2004 with colleagues, Andy spent sixteen years pursuing the dream to the cusp of a professional theatre tour, only to find it cancelled due to the corona virus lockdown two days before it was due to begin. I ask Andy about his career failures, career highlights but ultimately how he made some bold dividing life decisions that made him realise his true passion in life.
Andy chose ‘Brand Boris’ – You’ll need to listen to this one for a full synopsis.
