In this “Storytelling Workshop”, Ty explains, “As we influence people they are attracted to us”. By connecting with an audience through creative storytelling, the audience begins to relate to us as a person as well as our product or company. Giving your business a personal face creates a comfort zone for your audience.
“When you are interested you do what is convenient. When you are committed, you do whatever it takes”. Ty Bennett tells the story of traveling on a train in a sleeper car through Russia with a family he didn’t know and how being in that awkward situation helped him decide what was important to him: the value of commitment over interest.
Ty Bennett draws on his own experience in the trenches and his consulting work with powerful brands to share with audiences insight into leadership that works. “Passion means you’re willing to suffer for something you love. Leaders who lack passion have followers who lack commitment. Why would anyone follow you as their leader?” he asks.
Bennett talks about the results of his survey of 5,000 leaders (featured in his new book and presentation Partnership is the New Leadership) and the word that showed up the most when he asked leaders what they wanted from their employees: commitment. “You want your people to be committed,” he says. “But people are not committed to jobs or companies. What drives commitment is leadership; people are drawn to people.”
Leadership expert Ty Bennett shares with his audience the conclusions he has drawn from his intense in-depth research of over 5000 leaders. He tells his audience, “The survey consisted of one simple question; the question was this, as a leader, what do you want from your people? Over 75% of leaders surveyed replied with one single word, commitment."
Ty explains the crucial point which so many leaders miss when they are looking for commitment: “Here's the key, people are not committed to jobs, they're not committed to companies, ultimately, people are committed to people. It's people and relationships that engender trust, that engender respect, that create accountability and ultimately commitment."
It is Ty's thesis that the old ways of leadership have to be changed if leadership is to become truly effective. He explains, “The old way of leadership was based on position, title and authority. You and I both know that people don't follow titles, they follow people, and so think about it, if you and I want commitment out of our people we need to approach leadership in a different way."
Ty Bennett’s seminars focus on leadership, influence and what leaders want from their people-commitment. Ty shares his insights into what keeps people committed to a company. He talks about building relationships and the importance of communication and how these tools will increase your influence and engagement.
Ty’s programs also highlight the value of storytelling and creating an emotional relationship with clients. He stresses the importance of creativity and standing out among your peers as ways of becoming relatable to your audience.
Sharing his tried and tested strategies and techniques which are guaranteed to increase the productivity and commitment of your employees and colleagues, Ty Bennett offers a series of presentations which focus on partnership, influence, storytelling and presentation.
It is Ty’s belief that all business is the business of people, and that you can be trained to have a greater influence over them. He puts forward a roadmap for engaging with your people by being interested in them, not trying to be interesting yourself; his message that you should be investing in your people will lead to significant improvements within your teams.
A sales expert, Ty knows all there is to know about storytelling as a communication and sales strategy. He explains how to choose your stories so that they will engage the emotion and attention of your intended market; once you have engaged the emotional and creative side of the brain your chances of sales are massively increased.

The Power of Storytelling
Objective: Selling or leading through storytelling
In this program, Ty teaches the art of storytelling as a key communication and sales strategy. He provides attendees with the
mindset, skill set and toolset to sell effectively through storytelling.
People love stories. More importantly, stories engage emotion which prompts people to respond, take action or buy your products.
We are all in the people business. We are all communicators. We are all involved in selling products, services, ideas. Storytelling is the most influential form of communication because we’re all emotional creatures.
We’ve heard the saying: “people buy based on emotion.” The truth is people take action based on emotion. The underlying principle behind storytelling is that it’s not about you; it’s about the other person. Showing them how your story impacts them and how it pertains to their life creates an influential impact in the sales decision.
Ty’s Key Messages:
· Humanize your message: make a human connection instead of trying to sell your product
· Create the balance between credibility and relatability: buy into the idea that business is about relationships
· Engage the emotional, creative side of the brain: people buy from you because they know and trust you; let them in so they like and trust you
· Begin a conversation…not about you, about them: ask specifically you-focused questions
· Tell the story: everybody struggles with the same challenges…hook them with a struggle and you help them with a solution.
· The science of storytelling
· The 5 places to use stories

SPEAKING.COM: What do you want people to learn / take away from your presentations?
BENNETT: I teach sales and leadership groups how to develop more influence with their clients, customers and teams. I want them to learn specific strategies and techniques that they can apply when they walk out the door that are going to make them more influential in their leadership roles. I also want them to come away inspired to take action and make a bigger impact.
SPEAKING.COM: What kind of special prep work do you do prior to an event? How to you prepare for your speaking engagements?
BENNETT: I do my own research on the company and then we have an in depth call with the event team to discuss the theme, key messages, agenda, purpose of the event as well as the struggles, success and triumphs of the team. Depending on the group, I often do calls to top leaders or key individuals to discuss further what they are dealing with on a daily basis. That entire prep works allows me to customize to each group.
SPEAKING.COM: Have you had any particularly memorable speaking engagements / unusual situations arise while on the road?
BENNETT: I think the life of a road warrior is always fun and memorable :-). I had a really cool situation last week that sticks out. I was traveling home from a speaking engagement and I looked across the aisle on the airplane and the gentleman across from me was reading my book! I said, “What book is that?” He held it up and said, “The Power of Influence.” I asked if it was good and he said, “I like it so far.” I said, “Good, because I wrote it.” He was shocked and I had to show him my headshot on the last page for him to believe me.
SPEAKING.COM: What types of audiences would most benefit from your message?
BENNETT: I primarily speak to sales and leadership groups. Those that are entrenched in the people business and want to increase their influence are the perfect groups for my message.
SPEAKING.COM: What inspired you to start doing speaking engagements?
BENNETT: This is hard to explain but it is what I feel like I am meant to do. I have a talent for speaking, I have had great experience in business that has given me key insights and I have a desire to impact the most people possible. So it is a perfect fit.
SPEAKING.COM: Which of your keynote topics are the most popular? Which of your keynote speeches do you enjoy the most and why?
BENNETT: • Partnership Is The New Leadership
• The Power of Influence
• The Power of Storytelling
I enjoy each of these three speeches for different reasons.
Partnership Is The New Leadership (which has become my most popular speech) is a total shift in approach and mindset for leaders. It gets them thinking about leadership in a new way and allows me to share relevant case studies and techniques of today’s most effective leaders.
In The Power of Influence I share great strategies to build influential relationships that work for both salespeople and leaders. I also get to share some great inspiration in this speech.
And The Power of Storytelling is very hands on, breaking down techniques that can help sales people share their story more effectively. I love feeling as though I have taught a skill set.
SPEAKING.COM: What are some of the successes you’ve helped clients make?
BENNETT: On the sales side, I have many testimonials about the increase in sales that have come as a result of my sessions. On the leadership, what I typically hear about is the change in culture that begins with the change in the leaders who attend my speech.
