Layne is one of just three Benefit Auctioneer Specialists (BAS) graduates in Canada, and among the less than one percent of Auctioneers in North America with this specialized training.
Further, as an experienced senior front-line fundraiser in the not for profit sector and a top sales producer in the financial sector, Layne brings years of direct experience and accomplishments to her fundraising and event revenue consulting expertise.
Layne’s signature high energy, performance-based live auction style entertains, captivates and most importantly, inspires giving. It can be scary to hand over the microphone to someone who isn’t a part of your cause but Layne always represents your brand with the utmost professionalism and respect.
An entertainment-based Auctionista and emcee who is acutely conscious of all the moving parts of an event, Layne is quick and skillful at redirecting the unexpected while delivering a high energy live auction experience. Building excitement and active bidding through audience collaboration is The Auctionista’s forte.
With a professional, you will inspire giving. By engaging The Auctionista for your next event, you are hiring a specialist with hands-on experience in the art and science of planning, executing and performing at fundraising auction events.
Whether you are coordinating a first time event or taking your signature event to the next level, feel confident that we will work alongside you every step of the way to ensure you reach your goals.
A professional Benefit Auctioneer Specialist (BAS) is involved and invested in your fundraiser for months leading up to event day.

In fact, what you’ll find is that much of the risk in event fundraising can be eliminated by working with a BAS.
When you hire Layne, you get so much more than a ‘bid caller’, you are ensuring commitment to your cause from your community.
