Burnette Clingman
Founder/CEO - Burnette Clingman Enterprises
Consultant, Trainer, Speaker

Burnette Clingman spent the first eight years of her life in a three-room, shotgun house in the red clays of Albany, Georgia. From these humble beginnings she rose to become a nationally recognized consultant, trainer, speaker and keynote presenter.

Burnette began her professional career in the banking industry in credit collections. She later became one of the bank’s top investment sales representatives, earning her way into the Million Dollar Sales Club. Within two years, Burnette was named Assistant Vice President.

After hearing Burnette speak at the bank’s United Way campaign kick-off, the CEO appointed her as a community spokesperson. This promotion sparked a business ownership idea in Burnette, and she went on to create Burnette Clingman Enterprises (BCE) in 1992. Burnette holds a Masters in Business Administration (MBA).

"I had heard of Burnette’s powerful skills on the platform and what she brings to an audience, so I came with high expectation. Burnette surpassed my expectation!"

President of Chase, Dayton, OH
Alabama State University

"Burnette, your spirited presentation left no student untouched. The passion demonstrated in your delivery was not only inspiring but contagious. I sat in awe watching as every student sat upright intently listening to your message. Rarely is a speaker able to capture an entire audience, but you were able to skillfully rise to the challenge and almost immediately establish a connection with your audience.

Students have often remarked that it was as if you knew them personally; had stepped into their lives and knew just what they needed..."
