Teleseminar: Kathy Kingston’s Secrets for Exceeding Your Fundraising Auction Goals

Turbo-Charge Profit at Your Next Benefit Auction!

“I love your tele-classes. I’ve been involved in nonprofits for over 30 years on 3 continents: Australia, Europe and North America, and this is the best news I’ve heard in a long time! Thank you.”

I’ve designed this next Tele-Seminar Series around your toughest challenges and most frequently requested topics. Some sessions, such as “Best Auction Items” and “Audience Development,” I’ll take to the next level. New ones, such as “Making All The Asks,” I’ll deal with from the ground up.

This are eight high-content auction fundraising development sessions available live, on recording, and by download, all for a single investment.

All teleconferences are about 60 minutes, include a live Q&A with Kathy and begin at 1PM US Eastern time.

Join me for solid content and practical techniques to dramatically grow your benefit auction and explode your bottom line.
