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!
Thanks, Michael Ferris – Ferris Gold

Phil, you must take a great deal of the credit for all the compliments we have received. The auction made more than reserve on every item and I have heard nothing but praise for you ‘expertise’. Everyone at the function has said that the Gala was the ‘best yet’ and are already looking forward to next year.

EJ lunch moved to the Pleniary
Friday, 27 September 2019
Fortuitously the organisers of E J Whitten lunch last year decided on a venue change from Atlantic wharf to the Pleniary. Over 700 people in Grand Final spirit were entertained comedian Vince Sorrenti and AFL legends, Leigh Matthews, Mick Malthouse and Alastair Clarkson. Hosted by Luke Darcy the audience supported the auction well which raised money for mens health. Ted Whitten Jrn gave a fitting tribute to two great friends of the foundation, past chairman, Peter Burnett and Danny Frawley both who died this year.
