Anyone can be a bid caller, but not everyone has the ability to create the atmosphere where bidders battle it out for the same item. Nearly 30 years of auctioneering experience has taught Des exactly how to read his audience, captivate the attention of everyone in attendance, and create the sense of urgency where bidders know they need to act fast or risk losing out on the item.

Whether you are hosting a casual, business casual, black tie, or a themed event, Des will arrive in suitable attire and adjust his auctioneering style to suit your guests.

Des would be happy to meet with your committee to discuss the many advantages of live auctions and what he can do for your organization.

Each auction is different and Des will work with you to assess your auction needs, such as:

  • live auctions versus silent auctions,
  • how to conduct an auction,
  • which auction items will bring the biggest return,
  • venue selection,
  • pre-event planning,
  • order of events and your agenda,
  • how to display items,
  • consultation during event set-up,
  • advertising and sponsor solicitation,
  • and much more!
