“PUSH for Excellence has recently had the privileged opportunity to work with Mr. Orlando Ceaser for several weeks in conjunction with its college-tour program where Mr. Ceaser served as one of our distinguished workshop speakers.  If I had to choose three adjectives to describe Mr. Ceaser, I would choose the following words: professional, powerful, and paternal.” 
- Jason N. Robinson, Director of College-Bound Programs, PUSH for Excellence

“Orlando Ceaser has spoken to our group several times.  Each time has been an amazing experience.  He has a gift that allows him to connect to the group and articulate the topic and how it relates to them.  He illustrates all there is to glean from the subject with creativity and humor.  He reminds us to have fun while life continues and to take each day to enjoy it.  Our group has requested he speak again and again.  Even when his presentation is over, there is a line waiting to hear his thoughts and further discussion.”
- Dee Peart, Willow Creek Cancer Support Group Leader

"Orlando's past experiences have shaped him to be an authority on leadership and development. He speaks concisely and with merit, and provided myself and my peers with relevant insight as many of us near undergraduate graduation in May. His books are great resources and can be handily referred back to, and are easy to process, yet have given me a fresh mindset."
- Bradley University Student

"Orlando is a great speaker. I have done keynotes with him in the past and if you ever get a chance to have him speak at one of your events know he is very audience focused. He is a sure bet!"
