Teenage Entrepreneur to Share His Remarkable Story at South West Expo

By Ben Carey on 25 June, 2018

Multi-award winning teenage entrepreneur Ben Towers will be delivering a keynote address at this year’s South West Business Expo in Swindon.

The 19 year old, who was been named by The Times at the top of their Super Teen Power List, is set to share his amazing story with the thousands of people registered to attend the event at Swindon’s Steam Museum on Thursday 5th July.

He will join an impressive line-up of speakers including the first female CEO of British Rail Jackie Chappell, sales expert Michelle Mills and business mogul Darren Clarke.

At just 11 years old Ben Towers was already showing a flair for business by building websites from his bedroom in his free time. Juggling school and freelancing commitments, he soon established his first company, Towers Design, employing freelancers to meet demand. The company quickly grew due to Ben’s hard-work and perseverance and was eventually sold in a multi-million pound deal.

Visitor’s to South West Business Expo 2018 are sure to be inspired and amazed by Ben’s story and will receive valuable business insights from the man described by Richard Branson as “one of the UK’s most exciting entrepreneurs.”

Alec Jones-Hall, Director of South West Business Expo, said, “We have invited Ben Towers to join us at South West Business Expo this year as his story demonstrates that with hard work anything is possible. At such a young age Ben has firmly established himself as one of the country’s great business minds, and we’re looking forward to hearing his keynote address which no doubt will inspire and enthuse people of all ages.”
