Kathy can attend a board meeting or committee meeting offering an interactive presentation that engage and prepare committee members and board members for the important role they will play the evening of the auction.

“Kathy puts on an all day training that leaves no questions unanswered. I can tell you she is one of the best auction trainers in the country and has the credentials to back it up.
