Your warmth and humour as an MC and your high level of professionalism as an Auctioneer were fundamental to the overall success of the night

An auction at a fund raising dinner can be just an auction or it can also be part of the entertainment! You succeed in making it both an auction that brings in the money and entertaining at the same time, both for those who were bidding so spiritedly and also for the rest of the audience.

Auctioneering at NIDA
Wednesday, 23 October 2019
The AVAA ( Auctioneers and Valuers Association of Australia) and NIDA (National Institute of Dramatic Art) came together for a two day auctioneering training program. Day 1 was facilitated by NIDA which focused on how we communicate. Day 2 was facilitated by myself and was an introduction to auction linking the learning from Day 1. It was a fantastic two days and the feedback from the all attendees was very positive. Attendee background included, furniture, jewellery, art, general goods, cars, truck and machinery. Experience varied from 20 plus years to no experience at all. The next program is scheduled for March 2020.
