Separate or multiple event pricing is determined by the scope and time required for each project and the amount of additional resources involved for your success. Pricing ranges from $2,800 to $280,000. I am serious about delivering results. Anyone seeking my help will have a 15-minute telephone consultation at no charge. However, I do require a project assessment fee of $280 for up to a 50-minute consultation - payable in advance to be applied to the first installment as a credit should we begin working together.
There are literally millions and millions of promising messages of talents and services posted on the Inter- net. I am confident most were written with every intention of fulfilling those promises, but frankly, I am disillusioned with unfulfilled expectations. I have only one promise… RESULTS! Results that are clearly defined, measurable and accountable. These are the terms under which I accept new clients or assignments.
Let me tell you why I know you’ll be satisfied with my results … because my ego’s completely in check. I’ve been just about everywhere and done just about everything. I like to listen and I love to move businesses forward. You will always know exactly where you stand working with me on your project or program. That is my personal, money back guarantee.
After years of serving on boards and participating with great and giant minds in think tanks, I am aware of one very specific truth… every body benefits from having someone to bounce ideas off of and bring a fresh perspective to their decisions. From dreadful meetings, downsizing, delivery expectations … I’ve lived them all and have come out the other side with wisdom and compassion and will use this experience to your benefit. Having an executive coach offers a highly confidential third party that has walked in your shoes and understands the daily drama of the corporate world.
On a selective basis, I do accept entrepreneurs who want to work one-on-one. The very word entrepreneur emits a vision of a sole trekker, one who often does not have others to count on. I know this firsthand as a solopreneur who has started and succeeded a number of my own businesses. Having me as a coach is like having a business partner, only one you don’t see everyday. As your coach, I become your unstoppable force and accountability twin. Because I only accept projects I truly believe in, I bring an enthusiasm that is part of the mix that makes entrepreneur's dreams come true.
The nuts and bolts of my coaching sessions are designed to facilitate the creation and development of both personal/professional goals and to help develop and carry out a plan for achieving those goals. Coaching sessions are held every other week with a maximum of three times per month, via telephone. My coaching gives you the unexpected energy and push to experience success that you might not otherwise have made the time to do on your own.
"A beautiful soul that does not know when to stop giving”, that’s how I would describe this incredibly talented and gifted woman, Pat Burns. After a consultation and brainstorming session with Pat in Dallas, her precision intuition went into action tuning in immediately towards my goals helping me launch my speaking career by laying the foundation for a topic that I can speak of with passion and introducing me to one of the best in the industry Mary McKay. Thank you Pat, for your awesome skills, I'm forever indebted to you.

With all the books in the world do we really need more? The answer is a most assured YES. I am the published author of Grandparents Rock: The Grandparenting Guide for the Rock-n-Roll Generation and it is clear that my book was needed and record sales are the proof. There are many moving parts to writing a book, and then there’s the branding and marketing… if you want to have a best seller then you’ll want to learn from someone from the trenches! Books are big business and it’s better to have help from someone who knows first hand what they’re talking and can use that experience to help you succeed.
“As an author and publisher, Pat Burns has a rare and wonderful ability for taking great ideas all the way from concept to completion. Pat’s eagerness to share this ability is a great opportunity for anyone who aspires to bring a book into the world. Take advantage of what Pat has to offer -- because she’s offering a lot!”

I have presented keynote addresses and workshops to 500 meetings and conventions; business groups, associations and corporations in every capital in North America and throughout Europe, Asia (as a consultant for a multi-billion business in Vietnam and Thailand) on sales, marketing, management and leadership.

"Pat Burns is the queen of diplomacy while still remaining authentic. She is the best at resolving difficult situations and win/win negotiations. She may be the most multi-facited and talented person I've ever met! Having booked Pat for many speaking engagements, I know first hand her talent at identifying an audience's challenges and after synthesizing information, riding in the like cavalry with resolutions. It's rare to find a person who can be master ceremonies, deliver the keynote, determine and select the other speakers, design the room's decor to match the theme and set the stage for making the attendees feel like they're having a million dollar experience."
