Be The Auctioneer Competition - Winner, Kay, enjoys her day on the rostrum

We ran a competition to give one lucky winner the chance to take to the rostrum at our auction rooms in Lewes. That lucky winner was Kay! Kay was one of only two people to answer all six multiple-choice questions correctly in our Be The Auctioneer quiz, a great achievement. Kay herself said she enjoyed the difficulty of the quiz and research aspect to it, which set her on the way to becoming our first ever Be The Auctioneer winner.

The day itself

Kay arrived at Gorringe’s in the early afternoon and given a tour of the auction house and sale room. She enjoyed a one to one coaching session with Phil, as he took her on a whistlestop ‘tour’ of the ins and out of hosting a successful auction - including starting bids, requesting raises and how to keep everything ticking along - including being tuned in to internet bids coming through via our online bidding system.

Kay was responsible for the auction of ten lots of varying values and descriptions and took to the job like a duck to water - even throwing in the odd joke here and there - a true natural!

You can watch the video of Kay in action, below, including a quick interview with Kay to get her thoughts on the day and the competition itself.

Keep an eye out for future competitions and next time it could be you!
