Ty did a great job!

:: Attendee, Coldwell Banker

“Ty did a great job and his presentation seemed to resonate well with our attendees.  I would definitely recommend him to other organizations.”

Our team walked away with a set of tools that has propelled all of us from a good engineering team into great influencers.

:: David Kosorok, Director, Application Security, Concur Technologies, Inc.

“When our security engineering team heard that Ty Bennett had been invited to speak, there was a high level of curiosity – how could an influencer and expert on leadership & storytelling help our engineers do their job better? After listening to Ty’s storytelling insights and combining that with his ability to break it down into logical and repeatable steps, our technical team walked away with a set of tools that has propelled all of us from a good engineering team into great influencers. Ty related to our analytical minds in such an engaging way that it changed for the better the way we approach security engineering and our ability to share information in an influential manner.”

Ty has an amazing perspective on leadership.

:: James Fuller, Major Gifts Officer UW/Owner of Discovering History and Heritage/Historian/Researcher

I had the pleasure of hearing Ty speak at the Wyoming Non-Profit Conference hosted by the Wyoming Community Foundation. Ty spoke to our group during lunch on “Partnership is the New Leadership.” As a retired Air Force veteran and someone who has worked in several leadership positions during my 24 years in the military, Ty has an amazing perspective on leadership. Understanding those who work with you is imperative in reaching the goals set for your organization. This is not just knowing your employees but, having a true observant and empathetic approach to each team member. As a Senior Non-Commissioned Officer this approach in leadership is essential to building a great team. If you have a team that is struggling to find their “fit”, Ty will assist you and your leadership in building a partnership that will lead your team to true success.

The most captivating speaker I have heard in years.

:: Sean Moore, Multi Line General Agent, Representing American National

Ty was the most captivating speaker I have heard in years. He is extremely passionate about helping his clients become better story tellers. You could feel his energy and his passion from the front row all the way to the back of the auditorium.

Ty was so engaging!

:: Michael Jones, E-Learning Developer / Manager Of Operations Services / Field Trainer / New Restaurant Opening Team Leader

I just witnessed an amazing speaking engagement by Ty at an industry conference. After hearing numerous other speakers that same morning, Ty came on stage to end the conference and instead of seeing signs in the audience of fatigue from listening to too many people in one morning, the entire audience was riveted. Ty was so engaging that his time slot was up before I thought it should be. I could have listened to him all day because as much as I was getting from his presentation, I knew there was still more. There was so much that I couldn’t get it all into my head during one presentation. Ideas were just popping off in my head and I was afraid my pen would run out of ink or that my hand would break the sound barrier from trying frantically to write down everything I was hearing and adding notes about what I was thinking based off of his speech. Hopefully, one day I will get to see him speak again!

Ty is an amazing speaker!

:: Marina Rusinow, Local Marketing Manager at General Assembly

Ty is an amazing speaker! He has an genuine talent for making people interested and excited about his stories but he also captivates an audience in a way that truly ads value. Most people attend company wide meetings for the food. Our group didn’t expect to leave feeling so inspired after Ty’s speech. We couldn’t remember what we had for lunch but we’ve continued to recite Ty’s takeaway points weeks after his presentation. Powerful stuff and he truly means every word! I highly recommend booking him for your next company-wide meeting.

I left inspired!

:: Morgan Richards, External Communications Marketing & Social Media Coordinator at Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association, Inc.

Ty is a talented trainer and expert story teller. His storytelling training is the best I have had in the 7 years I have worked at Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation. As a digital content creator and online fundraiser, I left inspired to practice my storytelling more than what is demanded by deadlines. I actually started refining our end-of-year Holiday Giving email campaign based on what Ty taught us today!

Top notch!

:: Lisa Dell Alba President/ CEO Square One Markets Inc.

I had the opportunity to hear Ty speak at a convenience retailing conference. Ty’s presentation is the one that attendees will be talking about after the conference is over. Ty presented key concepts that you can apply immediately in any operation with respect to motivating and connecting with your team. His ease with the audience and his ability to engage his listeners is top notch.

I would 100% recommend his work to any company, individual or team!!

:: Team Lead – Aureus Medical, Erik Malmos

Today I had the pleasure to hear Ty speak for the first time. My initial thoughts were “here is another speaker my company has hired to wake us up this morning…”. My impression changed within the first 2 minutes of him starting his presentation! Ty’s message was not only direct & simple but it served purpose, it was relatable because it was real and he controlled the room. Understanding the power and effectiveness of influence is something I feel can’t be taught or bought, but learned. I could feel the honesty, understand his journey/how he got to where he is today and appreciate his input. I am looking forward to reading his book, The Power of Influence and applying the basics right away. Even though we had him for about an hour today – I would 100% recommend his work to any company, individual or team!!

I would Pay Money to Hear Him Speak again and again!

:: Milo Milosevich Director of Sales and Distribution at Financial Independence Group….We are great at what we do and only getting better

Ty was a recent Keynote speaker at our National Sales Symposium and all I can say is BOOK THIS MAN NOW!!! Ty has a fabulous gift of speaking with enthusiasm, humour, but most of all Ty is spot on for helping to shape and form a thriving business culture. I would pay money to hear him speak again and again.

Fantastic Job of Engaging the Audience

:: Lynette Arrasmith Senior Manager Mortgage Lending, NMLSR 400322 at First National Bank of Nebraska

Ty was brought into our organization to speak to our Leadership Team about The Power of Influence. I enjoyed his enthusiasm and passion around the subject as well as the confident manner in which he presented his material. A great reminder to be interested, not interesting; we lead individuals who make up a team; and your actions tell a story that the people around you absorb and respond to. Ty did a fantastic job of engaging the audience with his ‘story’ that will help us all be better as Leaders. 

Innovative Suggestions

:: Carol Johnson, JD Director of Donor Relations at Christian Living Communities

Ty knocked our socks off at the Colorado Planned Giving Symposium last week. Not only is he a great speaker, but he gave us innovative suggestions on how to improve our non-profit storytelling including before and after examples. 

So Personable and Applicable to My Life

:: Ethan Fernandes Business Intern at Horizon Community Church

I had the opportunity to hear Ty speak at a AFP conference this past weekend. I didn’t know what to expect but in the first few minutes the message he was delivering was so personable and applicable to my life. His message has helped me reflect on my leadership experiences and helped understand the power of influence. I am looking forward to reading Ty’s book on the power of storytelling and would recommend him to any business or conference! Fantastic!!!

Fantastic!!

Best Speaker by Far

Robert is the richest, Dan is the smartest but you are the best speaker by far.

Your contribution as a speaker was invaluable.

:: Brian D Heckert, CLU, ChFC, First Vice President, Million Dollar Round Table

What a journey! When the 2015 Annual Meeting Program Development Committee (PDC) made the decision to change the meeting format, it was not without from trepidation and concern about how MDRT members would react.

The sell-out attendance in New Orleans confirmed the PDC’s vision to offer a program providing more sharing of ideas and opportunities for networking was exactly what our members wanted.

Thank you for being a part of the 2015 MDRT Annual Meeting. In addition to proving excellent content, your willingness to work with the new format and incorporate Participant Centred Learning strategies in your presentation was most appreciated.Ty red carpet

We appreciate the time you took in preparing and sharing you insights and expertise with our members. Your contribution as a speaker was invaluable.

You played a significant role in the success we experienced in New Orleans.

Thank you again, and wish you continued success!

I wanted to send you a huge thank you for your insightful and energetic presentation yesterday. From what I’ve seen, I’m not the only one to think your session was fantastic; the feedback from attendees is excellent! All in all the event was an overall success, so once again, thank you!

Your Message Helped the Audience Understand the Whole EventOtUrCR611C4_yF1SAodZBpe4W8zOCgUI4NNhy2Du6T0

:: Chris Longstreet, Director of Learning Experiences of Choice Hotels​

When we design learning experiences, we envision many things from goals and objectives to the feelings and emotion people will feel during the whole experience of a learning event. As we have worked with you, you seem to grasp what all this means and tailor your message to the audience to get them to understand the whole instead of the individual parts of an event. Thank you for your efforts over the past three weeks.  If you ever need a reference or recommendation, you send them to me and I will tell them how well you work with your client, how you are able to integrate your message into the theme of an event, how your interactive style engages the audience, and your desire to connect with the audience in ways that make an impact.

Huge Hit

:: Curtis Hoehne, Director, Global Events – ​Nature’s Sunshine​
“Ty was a huge hit with the audience. His message was valuable and very engaging.”

“I have heard countless mentors talk about the importance of telling your story or that network marketers are highly paid storytellers – but I have never had anyone break it down and teach the process of storytelling in such a clear and concise manner. Thank you! “
-Charles Reed, PrePaid Legal

“Ty, I recently purchased your training course on story telling. ‘Facts Tell Stories $ell’. I’m already a successful Network Marketer, based in Australia (#1 for my company here in AU). I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the content and training you provide in your course. If I could narrow it down to a single skill in Network Marketing that would lead to the most success, it would be the ability to present stories that inspire others into action. But what I am now learning from you is that Story Telling can become a CRAFT, a skill that can be honed to multiply our effectiveness many times. In providing your training via video classes you have given me the ability to study and practice your art over and over again. I fully intend to use your training for years to come. Network Marketers NEED your Story Telling Training more than any other!”
-Ian Parkin, Top Send Out Cards Distributor

“Your storytelling insight is the missing piece to me reaching the level of success I want in the business. I can’t thank you enough!”
– Isaac Dorrel, Amway

“Ty, you are very sincere and genuine, not salesy or gimmicky, which are great attributes. I felt like a student at a master’s feet learning some very valuable skills and tools.”
-Doug Lange, Melaleuca

“Wow! I have been told that I am a good story teller and that people relate to the story’s but I didn’t realize I was doing all that. Besides being a great story teller you have the gift of clarity. You make things so….. what would I say? personable and easy to apply. This is going to take my business to the next level!”

Ty received rave reviews on hundreds of evaluations, and that is from an experienced and critical group who see top speakers all the time.

Our Members Adored Mr. Bennett and His Speaking Style

:: Saurabh Mahajan , President of Oregon DECA

Mr. Bennett spoke at the 2012 Oregon DECA State Career Development Conference in front of approximately 1,000 future leaders and entrepreneurs. His message kicked off our conference, and truly inspired our members to work hard in competition over the next 2 days, and always “play to win.” All of our members adored Mr. Bennett and his speaking style, because he was able to connect with the audience and interact with all of us on a personal level. As the conference progressed, I was able to use his message to answer questions for members when they came up to me and asked “How can I be successful?” For my peers and I, remembering to “play to win” is crucial for our success, because as we learn in DECA, it’s all about going the extra mile.

If you’re tired of hype, and want training that has lasting impact, which translates into real world results, I highly recommend Ty. His concepts on building influence are critical to anyone who wants to create huge results in Direct Sales/MLM. He is a truly rare find in this industry.
