Book Michael for your Event

Invite Michael, veteran speaker, combat veteran and author, to inspire your group? He has been energizing audiences of all kinds for over ten years. Make your next event one to remember. Engage Michael today.

One of most challenging presentations are those attempting to educate as well as share one’s personal story. Michael Orban’s presentation is quite simply one of the most compelling, thoughtful, and impactful I have ever attended. I have now seen his presentation several times and it never loses these qualities. As the number of veterans with cognitive and mental health issues increase, so too does the need for understanding the unique journey many of these veterans have been on. A failure to understand this journey is a failure as a community and as citizens of this country.

I can attest that his presentation has changed the way I think about veterans and I know it has had an equal impact upon those attending his presentations.

Michael provided seminar attendees with a powerful message of living with PTSD. He spoke of how administrators and faculty must provide support for returning veterans as they transition back to the civilian world. He provided attendees with handouts on how to recognize symptoms along with a wealth of knowledge on treatments. He spoke of the need for the University to provide the resources for returning veterans to be successful in the classroom and about their involvement in campus activities. He also spoke to how the university could tap into the experiences of returning veterans and how that would enhance the classroom learning for other students.

Mr. Orban is a powerful veteran speaker who has a passion for this topic and a desire to share his knowledge of this disorder. I highly recommend him.
