10 Deadly Sins of Charity Auctions (And How to Prevent Them) - Webinar

Winspire is proud to present a free recording of our recent webinar, "10 Deadly Sins of Charity Auctions (and how to prevent them),” featuring our good friend and renowned fundraising auctioneer, Danny Hooper. In what could easily fill a 2+ day workshop, Danny covers the following topics:

  • The Do's & Don'ts of organizing your program
  • Proper timing and sequencing of your live auction
  • Commonly missed revenue opportunities
  • Silent auction boo-boos
  • Dangers of losing control of the audience
  • The high cost of using an unqualified auctioneer
  • How to avoid the 10 most costly mistakes
  • ...and more!

This is a must-watch for anybody associated with a fundraising auction who wants to achieve record-breaking results at their next event and develop a foundation for successful event fundraisers for years to come.

We cannot thank Danny enough for imparting his wealth of knowledge to all of us for free, and taking the time to answer many great questions from the audience.

So whether you missed out on the live session, want to relive an incredibly educational seminar or pass it on to others in your auction committee, you can't afford not to check out the video!
