Emily stays two steps ahead of the event's activities, but present in the moment and prepared to handle anything with poise and confidence.

As an emcee, Emily commands the crowd with her larger than life personality. Her auctioneering skills are impressive and beyond her years, due to her ability to go with the flow and creatively use the energy of the crowd to pull in bidders and participants.

“With the uncertainties and constant changes brought about by the pandemic, and our own team burdened with competing responsibilities, we relied on Emily to advise us on our benefit planning. Her perspective was invaluable, especially her understanding of event audiences' expectations of virtual, in-person, and hybrid events. We also appreciate her ability to distill messages from multiple ideas and communicate them to stakeholders clearly. At our in-person event, she was an energetic, unflappable, and essential part of the team. In addition, when we needed to run a parallel quiet phase of our fundraising campaign, Emily was a vital thought partner as we sorted through the challenges of our options.”

“All the feedback I've heard from guests to LINES internal staff has been extremely positive on Emily's performance. Everyone really loved how engaging Emily was and I've already gotten the request to book Emily for next year's Gala! I truly enjoyed working with Emily. She was professional and offered really great advice on items directly related to her role and outside of it as well. Thank you Emily, for contributing to the success of Alonzo King LINES Ballet's 40th Anniversary Gala.”

“Working with Emily was such a wonderful experience. She really went above and beyond to support us and help make our event a success. The pre-event meetings were incredibly helpful - her awesome spreadsheets and stellar organizational skill kept us focused and motivated. Her stage presence: warmth, brightness, and fun approach were a perfect fit for our guests. The feedback we received after the event was all positive. We can't wait to work with her again! “

She is the quintessential balance of professionalism and fun! I highly recommend her services for any and all events, from a small intimate gathering to large scale corporate events."

“AuctionEmily is worth her weight in gold. We were hesitant to hire a professional auctioneer just because of the uncertainty: whether we could afford it, what it would add, what she could do that our internal host couldn’t… Now that our virtual fundraiser is over, wow, thank goodness we took the risk! There is no way our event would have been as successful as it was without her. AuctionEmily is effortless on screen, made our script and story flow beautiful, brought a great energy to “the room”, and raised more money for our fundraiser via the live auction and fund-a-need than we had hoped. We were proud to have AuctionEmily representing TGE on screen all night.
 
Thank you for being professional, firm, and flexible. We were grateful to have you on the team and I hope to work with you again in the future.”
