I love auctioneering.  It puts everything I’ve learned in my coaching to work and in the spirit and for the sake of generosity.  Helping givers give and good work thrive is pure joy.

Becoming a professional auctioneer was a natural addition to Dia’s career, since it involves using her voice to give back. Auctioneering allows her to help elevate the voice and impact of female leaders in the non-profit space by helping to raise the money they need to tackle the issues that are important to them. As an auctioneer, Dia truly believes that a great idea and team can make a world of change when supported by the right amount of dollars.

Dia is currently available as an auctioneer to:

  • Maximize revenue at fundraising events by boldly asking for the  philanthropic donations your organization needs to thrive
  • Consult your arts, science and social change nonprofit to design a fundraising program that is compelling and encourages your unique  community to give generously
  • Leave audiences with a lasting impression of your event by acting as a host with a strong, engaging personality
