The Man in the
Red Coat®


“Have gavel, will travel”

Hiring James ensures any fundraising and charity event is led by a highly experienced auctioneer who’s raised £2.75 million in just the past five years. He can not only advise on the number and types of items and activities that work well depending on style of event, guests in the room and overall objectives but will also work the room to raise as much money as possible.

Below are just some of the past activities that James has run as an auctioneer to raise funds;

  • Fun and games to liven up the audience (eg heads and tails)
  • Raffles
  • Silent auctions
  • Pledges
  • and of course, live auctions

The past 30+ years in the arts and entertainment industry has left James with a whole range of skills and experience to dramatically increase the potential amount of money that can be raised at any fundraising event(s).

No matter what colour coat is selected, be it classic red, black or something completely different, any fundraising is sure to take flight and reaches new heights thanks to James’ expertise.

“It has been an absolute pleasure working with James on a recent charity auction event. He is the total professional, both in his working of the room and also in creating great relationships with others on the stage, members of the audience and clients.

He has an amazing attention to detail and conducts a great deal of research in advance of going 'live'. Doing this so well allows him to instantly react, read the room really well and position his style to fit the occasion. He can also change his style mid-way depending on the reaction he's looking to get from the audience.

Totally professional and totally likeable. I have no hesitation in recommending James to any client/organisation that is looking for an auctioneer, a moderator or an MC.”
