I first met Phil back in 2015, where we engaged his services to conduct Auctioneering training for my staff. It became evident that Phil was not only a natural but, the best auctioneer I had ever seen. I soon after engaged Phil to Auctioneer at a land subdivision where five lots were being offered for sale by auction in one day. Phil and I worked well together, his advice, direction before the auction made sure we were in a perfect position, come auction day. The auction was a huge success with $647,000 above the reserve prices achieved, a considerable crowd and thrilled vendors.
I only use Phil, and I will only ever use Phil for my auctions as I would never want to risk my vendor’s result by not using the best!

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.

Australian Sport’s night of nights!
Friday, 11 October 2019
Sport Australia Hall of Fame Gala Dinner at Crown is an amazing night on the Australian sporting calendar. So many champions in the room, some who are still competing and others who have retired joined the 1,100 strong crowd to celebrate Australian Sport. New inductees into the Hall of Fame, a new legend, the Don award and the 5 recipients of the very successful mentor program were all honoured. I was privileged to conduct the auction to raise money for the mentor program which 17 of the past recipients went to the last Olympics in RIO. Congratulations to Tania Sullivan and her team for staging a wonderful event.
