For events to run smoothly and to time generally not only requires meticulous planning, but expert facilitation to make sure that delegates and guests are guided slickly and with ease throughout.

With a background in performing arts and customer service he understands about tact, diplomacy and delivery in such a way that he guides all concerned through any event he is in command of using warmth, in a personable style and when required with authority. As such events run to time and nobody is in any doubt as what is going on.
So whether you have a fundraiser, quiz, formal dinner, or wedding of any kind James is just the person you need to make sure it is the success you wish it to be.
"My aim is always to make the host feel like a welcome guest at their own event!"

The Man in the Red Coat Q&A
What do you love most about your job?
Every event I do is different and so as such I never get bored of the process. The best bit though, is that I get to work with such a wide variety of people which not only enriches my life, but means I get to have fun at work.
Doing what I do is a bit like flying an aeroplane. Most of the time you are cruising on autopilot, but there are always take offs and landings that need to be controlled as smoothly as possible, not to mention the occasional turbulence. However, flying is exhilarating and so is doing what I do.
What inspired you to start your own business?
A chance meeting with a man called Dan! Following an informal conversation he sent me to work for him for a week in Germany, fronting a show. Whilst there people came up and asked me what I was doing the following week. And so it began.
With over 25 years working for someone else doing jobs that just paid my bills I came to the conclusion why don't I do something that I enjoy and earn money at the same time. I now get to choose who I work with and when I work.
Why should our clients choose you?
Coming from a customer service and performing arts background I have the ability to adapt my delivery to just how you would like it. Many in my profession treat every job the same with regards to delivery. However, clearly a City dinner is not a wedding and should not be presented in the same way. I am tall, personable, warm, energetic and when required authoritative. I have the ability to pronounce and deliver difficult names with confidence and I am also a little younger than most of my peers, but not so young as to lack experience. I enjoy what I do and take pride in doing it to the highest standards. If I am smiling and happy, so will your event or training programme be.

Running a successful charity fundraiser can rely on several things. Firstly those invited to be part of it need to be in a position to dig deep for your cause. Secondly if there is a live auction you need a lively and experienced charity auctioneer to help raise the bids to maximise your efforts. James Hasler was introduced into the world of auctioneering as far back as 1984 and has the energy to encourage all to play there part. However, what sets James apart is that he will not just run your live auction, but he will run your whole event for you, saving on employing 2 people.
