Scott Robertson, CAI, BAS, a 20 year veteran auctioneer and principal of Scott Robertson Event Fundraising Consultants/Auctioneers will present a free seminar “Emerging Trends and Best Practices of Fundraising Auctions” on Tuesday, September 24th from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon at the Naples Hilton, 5111 Tamiami Trail North, Naples.
“Nonprofits are faced with an increasingly competitive fundraising climate,” said Robertson. “However, benefit auctions are booming and raised more than $110 billion worldwide for charitable causes last year. This seminar will review strategies to help nonprofits realize the full potential of their event by applying field-proven techniques at their next benefit auction.”
A full time professional Benefit Auctioneer, Robertson annually conducts 60-70 fundraising auctions, raising more than $20 million dollars this past year. He is one of an estimated 30 auctioneers in the country that make fundraising auctions their full time profession. Scott has earned the Benefit Auctioneer Specialist (BAS) designation from the National Auctioneers Association. Less than 1% of the auctioneers in the country have earned the BAS professional designation.
