Did you know that GalaBid is active and thriving across the Tasman? Based in Auckland, GalaBid is lucky enough to have events and fundraising expert, Cathy Taylor on board. Cathy is offering the GalaBid platform for fundraising events right across New Zealand. With nearly two decades experience in the events space, Cathy has a varied and comprehensive career history. From organising charity auctions to selling sponsorship and exhibition space, Cathy has helped produce successful events in the UK, Europe, US, Middle East, Asia, South Pacific and Australia. Whether it's a gala dinner or a fundraising fashion show, Cathy understands what is needed to deliver outstanding results. In addition to working with GalaBid, Cathy is the Director and Co-Founder of NZ events organisation, Eve Events. Â Eve Events specialise in producing high profile fundraising events with celebrity speakers from around the world. Cathy has been involved in running events with some seriously heavy-weight keynote speakers, including: Vice President Al Gore, Sir Richard Branson, Nigella Lawson, Bobby Kennedy Jnr, Andre Agassi and Sir Bob Geldof. Here's what Cathy has to say about partnering with GalaBid: â€œGalaBid has transformed the way I run live and silent auctions! I was the first to use GalaBid at a public buy-in event in New Zealand (An Evening with Richie McCaw & Dan Carter in aid of iSPORT Foundation) and they were outstanding. Since then, GalaBid has been inundated with enquiries so they asked me to join their team and become their NZ Rep. I'm proud to say GalaBid is quickly becoming the #1 Online Bidding Platform for Charities and Event Companies in the country.â€ Want to see what Cathy can do? Read all about how she helped Kiwi Gold Sailing smash their fundraising target to send the team to the 2016 Paralympic games in Rio. Here is what two clients had to say about working with Cathy and GalaBid in NZ:
"We used Galabid for the first time for our 2017 Charity Regatta and it significantly increased our event's exposure and amount raised. The platform is extremely user friendly and our Account Manager provided amazing instruction and support. We have already engaged Galabid for this year's event and I would 100% recommend Galabid to anyone who wants to increase the success of their fundraising event!"
"We have used GalaBid at our events with +400 guests and +100 auction items. It has made the entire silent auction process much easier, less resource heavy, and ultimately increased our revenue."
We're thrilled to include Cathy as part of the extended GalaBid family. With a passion for fundraising and extensive experience in event management, Cathy is the perfect partner for any New Zealand organisation that is looking to maximise its fundraising revenue.
