I was first introduced to Gesture in a volunteer capacity, serving as a committee member for an event at my church. I was impressed with how user friendly the site was, for both administrators and event guests.
In addition to introducing the Gesture platform for bidding, we were also in a brand new venue, with only a few volunteers. The week leading up to the event, I heard from two major donors who expressed their disapproval of mobile bidding, one of which whom predicted it “would be a disaster”. By the evening of the event, I was second guessing my decision to use Gesture and bracing myself for the worst. Enter Courtney.
Courtney exceeded every expectation that I had for Gesture’s role that evening. Within moments of meeting her, I knew we were in good hands. She was calm, level headed, and patient all evening. As problems came, Courtney easily identified and resolved them without missing a beat. She not only managed and mobilized her staff, but also directed our volunteers, and was helpful in keeping us on track with time. I did not count on being able to sit down for dinner, let alone enjoy the night, but I did both. Additionally, many of our donors commented how pleased they were with mobile bidding, especially for easy check out.
