Ty Bennett

Founder and CEO

When Ty was 21 years old, he and his brother Scott started a business in direct sales, which they built to over $20 million in annual revenue while still in their twenties. Since that time, he has developed over 500 sales managers globally with sales and leadership in 37 countries. As a young entrepreneur, Ty went on to found Leadership Inc. – a speaking and training company with a mission to empower individuals and organizations.

With a natural ability to engage and empower others, Ty draws on his experience in the trenches to share real and tangible techniques about the principles of leadership that continue to create his success. Ty was recently featured as one of the Top 40 Under 40.

Ty is a young, fresh voice providing interactive presentations that are engaging, dynamic and inspiring. His clients include some of the most recognizable brands in the world such as: Coca-Cola, AT&T, Home Depot, NY Life, Delta Airlines and Remax. Ty has shared the stage with celebrities, Olympians and world-renowned thought leaders such as President Bush and President Clinton.

Ty’s best-selling books – The Power of Influence and The Power of Storytelling: The Art of Influential Communication – are used in graduate courses at multiple universities including MIT, as today’s version of “How to Win Friends and Influence People.” Ty is also the co-author of The Two Most Important Days of Your Life.

In June 2014, Ty Bennett received the CSP Designation.  At just 32 years of age he is one of the youngest ever to receive the award in the shortest amount of time.  Less than 5% of speakers earn the CSP honor.

Ty lives in Utah with his wife Sarah, daughters Andie and Lizzy and sons Tanner and Drew.
