- 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.
- 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.
- What is your personal style in business in three words?
Personable, exclusive, honest.
- 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
