Terry Burden. I entertain and enlighten. I am as comfortable playing and singing music in front of hundreds of friends as I am sitting at the negotiating table or building a valuation analysis of a multimillion dollar company. As a longtime financial analyst and intellectual property development specialist, my insights into business processes and value give me a keen eye for success in people and enterprises. As an entertainer, I’m a natural. I was born to stand in front of people and share a message. Simple as that.
After an extended tenure consulting in the C-suites of America’s leading businesses, I returned to my first love and my early roots in music and live performance. In 2011, I entered a new phase of my career, taking the chair as host of Park City Television’s Mountain Views program. For seven years, five nights a week, I produced a live television talk show with live music that I curated and engineered. Presently, I am entertaining audiences with original musical compositions in the Terry Burden Project. I never thought I’d have the guts to name a band after myself, but I wanted to. So I did. At least you’ll know who’s playin’. No Dinosaur Jr for me...
I am a graduate of Drake University and Vanderbilt University’s Owen School of Management; my strong educational roots provide the cornerstone for my current activities.
In the hothouse of almost-post-Covid 2020, I am focussed on bringing my left- and right-brain abilities together in Terry Burden Enterprises, an initiative that will create entertainment content, communications and business value for clients and partners.
