Harry is a professional auctioneer and experienced fundraising consultant, with a passion and proven ability to help not for profits raise more through their auctions and pledge drives.
Born and raised in the UK, Harry began his fundraising career in London. He worked closely with many of Europe's largest not for profits, utilizing technology and an engaging methodology to help them raise more at gala benefits. Identifying New York as the fundraising capital of the world, he 'hopped the pond' full time in 2014, and has not looked back since.
Harry now supports many of the largest not for profits stateside, both as a pre-campaign consultant, and on stage during the events themselves. Harry has a methodical approach to fundraising; utilizing data from previous years, as well as analysis of event formats and guest demographic to help clients set and challenge their audience to achieve ambitious fundraising goals.
On average, with close to 70% of all audiences having not paid for their individual ticket to attend any given benefit, Harry prides himself on maximizing audience participation in the auction or pledge drive call to action. He has a unique ability to tastefully draw something out of everyone, uniting rooms to a common fundraising goal, coupled with integrity and a sharp wit.
