Having worked as a Fine Art Auctioneer & Valuer for several well-known auction houses throughout the UK, notably as founder and Managing Director of a well-known Midlands Fine Art Auctioneer, I went on to run my own busy Saleroom in Warwickshire. For 14 years I held monthly Fine Art, Antiques and Collective Sales of between 800 – 1,500 lots in addition to undertaking a full schedule of professional work selling approx. 18,000 lots per year. In 2008, I took a year off to become an antiques dealer so that I could understand the business behind the scenes. Consequently, my talks include many amusing anecdotes from my time as an Auctioneer and Valuer and in The Trade. I now act as a Fine Art Auctioneer & Valuer, Agent & Consultant while also undertaking valuations for Probate and Insurance. I have raised many thousands of pounds at fundraising and Charity events.
About my talks...
I undertake live and Zoom/Virtual talks.
I am a stand-alone speaker, so I don’t require any special equipment – although a microphone is always helpful.
My talks often conclude with the popular Road Show concept when I select and discuss some of the items the audience has been invited to bring along to be valued. I also run a popular quiz, on request. We can discuss the format and your requirements when the booking is confirmed.
Live talks from £100.00 + Mileage
Zoom/Virtual talks: £95.00
