Thirty-eight years in the entertainment industry in Australia has seen Ronnie emerge as a household name in many areas of television and ‘live’ entertainment. Ronnie has had a long and varied career. He hosted many television programs, was the principle of Ronnie Burns Architects & Interior Designers and an author of two books. Ronnie is currently writing his Life Story (Random House Publishers) which is scheduled for release early 2004. Ronnie’s appearance on the Nine Networks 'This Is Your Life' (to-air Nov 2001) pulled an amazing national viewing audience of 2 million people.
He has been married to wife Maggie for over 34 years and they now live in the north west highlands of Tasmania and are planning to build a safe haven and integrated learning centre for children orphaned by war. Appin Hall Children’s Foundation is a non-profit organisation with a vision for the protection and wellbeing of future generations. Ronnie and Maggie’s background ties into this vision as music, singing, dance and visual arts will be the healing modalities used to re-build the fragmented lives of terminally ill children in Australia along with children orphaned by war in other countries. Ronnie’s architectural background also ties into this vision to build a village and principle (a model) for a self-sustainable community in Tasmania and other countries.
Client Comments for Ronnie Burns
Ronnie Burns travels from Tasmania Australia
- "You think Ronnie Burns is a wonderful entertainer? He is. He is also a visionary with an important message for all Australians. Ronnie will challenge the minds and hearts of audiences everywhere because what he has to say is not only meaningful - it is vital. He will confront apathy, challenge you to action and really make you think about what you are doing with your own life. Ronnie has a delightfully natural style that draws the audience in as his story unfolds. I was one of over 100 people who heard Ronnie speak at a conference
recently. From the first moment we were engaged. We laughed, felt proud, and we wanted to contribute. To say Ronnie's presentation was inspiring is not enough. Expose this man to audiences and watch what happens..."
- We found Ronnie's presentation both nostalgic and entertaining. His values and humility stood out as he delivered a diverse and professional address that made us feel happy and to be in the presence of such a genuine and committed Australian."
