Ben Towers

Motivational Speaker Ben Towers
  • One of the UK’s most successful young entrepreneurs.
  • Started his own digital media agency aged 11.
  • 16 years old and employees 15 full time members of staff and has over 500 influential clients.
  • Remarkably confident, experienced speaker who is well grounded and keen to help other young people follow his lead.

Ben Towers is a multi-award winning serial young entrepreneur with a very unique and engaging story about how he started his journey to becoming a multi-award winning 16 year old serial young entrepreneur. At the young age of 11 he decided that he wanted to break the old of most others his age (who were thinking about high school) and start his business.

After building a basic website for a family friend Ben quickly gained confidence to work with external businesses and signed up as a freelancer (aged 11) and by 12 he already had 25 customers all around the world.

As Ben’s ability began to grew so did his customer base and quickly the work became too much for the young boy to handle and so he started to look for other options. This lead to Ben taking on a freelancer completing work he forwarded on. This continued and when he was 14 Ben took on his first full time employee in his digital agency, Towers Design providing cutting edge internet content and marketing solutions.

Ben is an ambassador for ‘The Federation Of Small Businesses’, lobbying for young people with some of the most influential politicians in the UK, and YENA (Young Entrepreneur Networking Association). Due to his constant work in government Ben is widely recognised by MP’s all around the UK and is a constant feature in the media throughout the UK.

Speaking To Inspire Other Young People

Ben is a remarkable young man who is ideally positioned through his own expertise to act as a role model for other young people to learn from and to follow. He is a confident speaker, unusual for someone so young.

Ben is available for speaking engagements and can address a large number of topics, primarily his own story about battling the challenges of building a business at a young age including finance, acceptance as a legitimate business man, access to grants and balancing work life with school (i.e. GCSEs). Other topics covered by Ben include staff motivation, sales, website design, hosting, SEO and branding.

In 2014 Ben started another business, ‘Social Marley’ – a social media dashboard for UK businesses. With this new business Ben has successfully raised £100,000 in funding for the developments of this business which launches later in 2015. As a young man who has achieved a lot Ben is keen to share his story to help inspire other young people. He has already amassed an impressive portfolio of clients for presentations most notably: The Business Show, The Student Entrepreneur Conference, NACUE (National Association of Colleges and University Entrepreneurs), Young Start-up Talent, Inspire Ur Biz, TEDx, Prysm Group and The Federation of Small Businesses.

He has spoken at a variety of events from small functions to large corporate conferences with thousands of delegates. At each event, Ben receives a very warm welcome; many people approach him afterwards to further discussions and he finds that a large percentage of his attendees can relate to his experience in some way or another.

In summery, Ben is a unique young speaker who has an inspirational relatable story which can be shared with audiences both big and small. Ben is still young and subsequently a great feature for any business programme.

Biography

Client Testimonials

'Ben has been voted the UK's most successful Young Entrepreneur for great reasons. Whilst at my show 'The Great British Business Show' he more than fitted in amongst some of the UK's fastest growing Business Owners and held the floor brilliantly whilst conducting 2 insightful seminars in front of packed audiences who showed fantastic admiration to hear him.  He is one to watch, has a great future in front of him and commands great respect whilst in his presence.'

'Young entrepreneur' is a phrase which describes Ben Towers very well but 'brilliant young entrepreneur' would be more appropriate. Ben started working with me when he was only 11 and I was immediately impressed by his knowledge and talents regarding many different areas of technology. I would not hesitate to recommend his work. He has sorted out many problems for me and I have always found him reliable and efficient in all he does.'

'I first met Ben Towers in my capacity of Central London Chairman for the Federation of Small Businesses and was immediately struck by his composure in the meeting we were both attending. There were around 12 people in attendance most of whom had met one another before. Ben was a stranger to most of us yet instinctively seemed to know when to speak and what to say and I must say I warmed to him instantly. He certainly knows his subject.  Since that first meeting we've met on numerous occasions. Being in business is about meeting fellow business people, convincing them you know what you're doing and then delivering what you promise and Ben has grasped that admirably.  He displays business acumen and confidence beyond his years and society really needs more people like him.'

'The Oxford English dictionary defines an entrepreneur as “A person who sets up a business or businesses, taking on financial risks in the hope of profit” Not only did Ben embrace this, at the tender age of 11, but he has run with it making his own enterprise hugely successful by any standards, let alone in one so young. What I also find admirable and exceptional in Ben is his willingness, and enthusiasm, to encourage all, be they young or old, to do exactly what he has done and become an entrepreneur alongside him. He will always find the time to talk to anyone and discuss their ideas and offer help and support. All this on top of running his own business and attending school.'

'I approached Ben asking if he could spare a few moments to be interviewed as part of the Young Entrepreneurs Networking Association, with a quick response his interview received a lot of engagement and I was very impressed with his professionalism as such a young entrepreneur. After talks with Ben I was inspired to highlight how much somebody as achieved especially at such a young age.'
