Entrepreneur and leading businessperson, Ben Towers is famed for entering the world of business at the astoundingly young age of 11. Despite not having any experience, he used tutorials on YouTube to build the site from the ground up. After realising that he could make money from web design, he set up Towers Design at the age of just 13.
From there, he developed a highly successful social media consultancy business. As a speaker, Ben has a unique outlook on business which he has cultivated from a young age. Knowledgeable, passionate and eloquent, his drive for professional development is infectious.
Before Ben turned 20, he had already established a full-service advertising and marketing agency which earned critical acclaim - Ben was regarded as one of the UK’s most exciting entrepreneurs. As a young businessman, Ben was working ahead of the game. As a speaker, he tells the story of how his first bank account was frozen because he was making too many transactions for a children’s account, and was too young for a business account. From this moment, Ben knew that he was destined for business success ahead of his competition.
In his presentations, Ben’s outlook is far from traditional - but that is what makes him so important at events. Raised in the era of the internet, his confident understanding of social media means that Ben is ahead of the curve and only discusses the most on-trend topics. At present, he continues to dominate the market, offering consultancy for both businesses and the British government.
Ben has had to develop invaluable management skills from a young age, for example, Ben fired his first employee while completing his exams. Unlike some businesspeople who don’t have the longevity to offer developed advice, Ben’s years of experience set him apart from the rest. Whilst working from his childhood home, he collaborated with some of the biggest names in the market.
