Living by the motto “Live life like everything is rigged in your favor,” Patricia Cesaire knows all about stepping out on faith and going after your passion.

Wearing the hat of a digital strategist, entrepreneur and corporate coach, Cesaire is known as the go-to person for digitally taking a brand to newer heights.

As the founder of the Cesaire Group L.L.C., she offers consultation to businesses looking to expand their involvement in the digital space. She’s worked with several top brands including Google, AMEX, and Pepsi, and even some local political campaigns. Admitting her fascination with the way people connect and communicate digitally, this young entrepreneur has shared her insights on numerous panels, workshops, and even on MSNBC.

With years of media experience that includes working as manager of audience development and digital PR for Warner Bros., Black Enterprise and Hill & Knowlton as a digital strategist, Black Enterprise is proud to welcome Cesaire back to the family as the host of a dynamic new season of Our World With Black Enterprise.

“I’m most excited about connecting our viewers to the learned experiences and insights of exceptional entrepreneurs and corporate leaders in the most entertaining format possible,” said Cesaire on her new hosting role.

Co-hosting alongside author, entrepreneur and professional matchmaker Paul Brunson, Cesaire says that Our World will fill a void in television that often provides inadequate coverage of black professionals.

“Our World highlights the successes of our brothers, sisters and friends,” said the Worcester, Massachusetts native. “There are so many remarkable black professionals making phenomenal career moves, and creating powerful legacies–we simply don’t see adequate representation of this reality across the majority of televised media. Our World mitigates this disparity by sharing positive, genuine narratives of amazing individuals across a myriad of industry and backgrounds.”

Catch Cesaire on the new season of Our World With Black Enterprise, which premiers for a new season this weekend and returns every Saturday, (check your local listings for times) and Sunday at 10a.m. on cable network TV One.
