I and The Auction Company wouldn’t be here without your involvement over the past 3+ years. You are like Yoda is to Luke, you have always pushed me and lent a helpful hand whenever required.
Your experience over 30 years is unrivalled and the more we have worked together the more I have seen your knowledge imparted onto me. All auctioneers should benefit from that.
Regularity of training has been integral to professional development and it’s interesting as training does not always mean rehearsing as an auctioneer. I would say that our training has come in the form of learning more about the english language, things like grammar and pronunciation. It has come in the form of reviewing auction situations and brainstorming various ways we would have handled it differently. It has come in the form of introducing me to a voice trainer, to improve how I use my voice. and these are just some of the things you have guided me on.
Without you highlighting the importance of each of these key ingredients I may not have gone on the journey to learn more to improve my all round auctioneer performance, which has directly improved me as a person.
Overall, you are a true and honest individual. I trust you and I am grateful to call you my friend. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone, as you live and breathe auction and genuinely care about everyone’s well being and progress.
Thank you for everything you have done and consider this a very small representation of the appreciation I have for you and the help you provide.

After meeting Phil at the Australasian competition in 2011, I sought his help in preparing for the 2012 competitions and my auctions in general. With Phil’s coaching and assistance I won the REIWA auctioneer of the year and made the finals of the Australasian 2012.

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.
