One of the top men on the circuit – as an MC and auctioneer, a must have for your sportsman’s dinner.

There isn’t a better man to have at your helm – his auctions are hilarious. And because everyone is laughing they join in. Brilliant!
Ted Carroll, Ted Carroll Events
Just a quick note to say thank you for your work and great comms over the last season, as always it was a pleasure for myself and our guys here at News UK to work with you. Your dedication to the rugby, regardless of how many games we give you never ceases to amaze me. Chris Moran, News UK
Just a short note to say how pleased everyone was with the way you conducted proceedings. Very professional with the right amount of humour. The interviews with Greg (Rutherford) have been first class. You put him at ease straight away and got the best out of the young man, which is not always easy. I’ve had several messages of thanks from members saying how much they enjoyed themselves and your contribution to events was excellent.

Richard Keys turned to me and said, where did you find this guy? He puts everyone at ease and then slowly gets more and more money out of them!

Sam Roberts’ delivery of charm, charisma, humour and enthusiasm is unique. He has become the most recognisable voice on the whole of the circuit. I reckon he could turn a game of marbles into a major world sport just as easily as he could have them eating out of his hand at the wealthiest charity auction.
Neil Roy, BBC
Any auction we do, we try our hardest to get Sam to do it – he always ends up getting 30/40% more for an item than anyone else. And he keeps everyone entertained – I can’t recommend him highly enough!
Andy Irvine, Chief Executive, Bedford Blues Rugby
Sam was instrumental in making our event, an auction of promises, a success. He was a wonderful crowd pleaser and was extremely quick at identifying with the audience, whilst still maintaining a firm hold on the proceedings. I would invite him back to do any sort of auction at any function. He was a joy to work with and a fantastic auctioneer to watch.”
Dame Alice Harpur School Charity Committee
I could watch Sam all night! I was worried about the auction part of the evening but then when he did his stuff, I just wanted more things to auction. Sam made us a lot of money whilst also entertaining everyone!
Simon Lincoln, Bedford Prep School Tour of South Africa
Thank you for working at our recent charity event as an auctioneer and MC. It was wonderful to have you there and you were a pleasure to work with. I was most impressed with how you kept everything to time, and how flexible you were on the night: adapting to the audience and any last minute changes. Most importantly, we raised more money in the auction than we would have done without you there. It was so good to work with someone so professional and, wow, what a voice!
Sally Cryer, Kinetix Events Ltd
Sam Roberts has worked with the Bedford Hospitals Charity on many an occasion over the last ten years. He is a delight to work with – fun, very reliable, confident and very professional. He has a great voice – very friendly and powerful, and a very calm manner; the latter being very reassuring at events for up to 650 people!!
Jacqui Golding, Bedford Hospitals Charity
Sam has worked for us on a number of occasions and we have always found him to not only be willing and enthusiastic about the job in hand but immensely capable. Sam connects with his audience and commands respect from all present. We recommend Sam wholeheartedly!
