Orlando Bowen



Orlando Bowen is a corporate speaker, trainer and the founder and Executive Director at One Voice One Team Youth Leadership Organization. For more than a decade, Orlando has used story-telling, fitness activities and cognitive exercises to teach resilience, leadership and teamwork to over 300,000 people. When it comes to building teams, creating momentum and employing winning strategies, Orlando is the real deal.

As a community advocate, former professional athlete and most importantly, father of three, Orlando knows what it means to beat the odds. His professional sports career was cut short by a racially motivated assault that almost cost Orlando his life. Orlando has publicly forgiven the perpetrators and empowers people to overcome adversity, find their passion and to use their gifts to serve. This is the reason Orlando breathes and is a gift that has placed him on hundreds of stages, boardrooms and in presentations across North America and has garnered him numerous awards.
