About Twentisphere

Hi, I’m Carl Benfield, founder of Twentisphere.

After running a business for many years, I became increasingly interested in why my company was struggling and others were booming.  I’m moderately intelligent, hard working, and relatively innovative; so how come others just seemed to get it right?

That enquiry led to a large number of conversations with other business in which I realised how much I didn’t know.  Why had no-one taught me this stuff.  Why hadn’t I taught myself?

Twentisphere was born out of this line of enquiry.  It aims to be a place to encourage, educate and inspire business leaders, but all in bite sized, twenty minute chunks.

Now, along with some equally curious people (I mean that in the best possible way), we’re seeking to make
Twentisphere a complete environment for peer mentoring, learning and excellence.

We just ask you to engage with us on the journey, ideally by subscribing (it’s free!) to our updates.  We won’t spam you, spy on you, or ask you for funds to release a Nigerian princess (although I do hope she gets freed soon!).

Welcome to the Twentisphere!
