  1. Can you describe your role and what you do in one sentence?
    I oversee the matchmaking of our clients at elect club; matching members based on suitability, personality and most importantly – compatibility.
  2. What does your company do, and what sets it apart from others in the industry?
    Elect club is an exclusive social network for attractive dynamic eligible professionals looking for a serious relationship. We have set the standard in discreet, selective and personalised introductions, and now have one of the largest private databases of single professionals in London. A ’boutique’ company, elect club services and unparalleled set of members ranging from business leaders and entrepreneurs, to professionals in every field.
  3. What is your personal style in business in three words?
    Personable, exclusive, honest.
  4. How did you get into the online dating industry?
    We are not an online dating company but organise matchmaking and personal introductions for single, attractive professionals in London. I graduated in marketing, this helps to understand the businesses needs, I have experience in journalism which enables effective writing of our members profiles and have worked for a range of top brands in customer service and client based roles- this provided the core needed for matchmaking. Understanding clients on a personal level and building a relationship with them similar to that of a great friend ensures we can develop a trust. However, we are certainly honest with them about what is going wrong on the dating scene for them and offer dating advice, confidence booster and the sometimes necessary image consultancy. I have a background in fashion which can help along with that one! We are also NLP trained which is so effective when meeting new people constantly.   READ MORE
