One of the main things your auctioneer should be doing is consulting. Your auctioneer does 50, 75, 100 events a year – so they should be taking information from those events and helping you decide best practices for your event. 80% of what the auctioneer does should be spent before your event – making sure the plan is set for you to raise the most money possible for your organization. We know how difficult it is to plan an event, and in this webinar, we will debunk common auction myths.
Creating a system of mindful stewardship will enable you to create the passionate support your mission and work deserve. We will discuss how to engage your sponsors and invest the resources to develop lasting partnerships.
In this webinar, Stephen covers:
- Do more auction items and more guests mean more money?
- Can you predict how much money you will make at your event?
- Does it really matter who the auctioneer is?
