Over the last five years a survey of more than 5,000 leaders asked one question: what do you want from your people? The overwhelming answer? Commitment. And what it takes to both create and retain that commitment is NOTHING like it used to be. That’s where Business Keynote Speaker and Leadership Expert Ty Bennett is helping organizations bridge the gap between old school mentalities and real-world solutions that connect with team members of every level today.

And embrace innovation. Ty Bennett has the tools you need to do all of these things and then some.

The Ninja Warrior Mindset
As an industry, you are being asked to perform at higher levels and at a faster pace than ever before. There is a constant need to change, adapt, pivot, and to do it faster than your competition. That is why right now, it is imperative that we understand three relationships. Our relationships with fear, failure and focus. Performance and growth hang on these three relationships.
As leaders, during this pandemic, you have probably been very intimate with these areas. You have been pushed and stretched and asked to grow and perform at higher levels than ever before. These relationships are real, and they have never been more relevant.
This is unlike any other presentation you or your teams have experienced before. Ty explores these relationships with two nationally ranked Ninja Warriors, his sons Tanner & Drew.
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 and it served purpose.
I thoroughly enjoyed your sessions at the Otsuka national meeting in Orlando. I'm a 20 year veteran of the pharmaceutical industry and I thought your approach to interactions (both customer and personal) was refreshing and 100% usable.

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.
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!
