High profile speed dating
As in, I conveniently forgot their names.)Rewind two weeks: I'm hanging out with some girlfriends and one of them mentions how she saw a groupon-like deal for speed dating.
In my head, I said, "Wouldn't it be fun if we all did that?
In short, if we take you on as a client, we guarantee you will go out on dates!
I have been working in the online dating space for quite some time now, and as a step further I decided to organise my first speed dating event in January, 2017.
Fast Forward to last night: My girlfriends and I show up to Xino in Santa Monica, dressed up, and ready to make snap judgments about the eligibility of strange men.
We were each assigned a number and given a card with three columns printed on it.
Post the timed interaction, the house is opened for networking and interaction, and I saw people chatting up till late. Before making the event live on the internet, I remember calling up a very popular venue in CP, New Delhi, in December, only to hear a ‘no’ because they found the meet controversial and not suitable for the Indian crowd.
It was an anxious moment, but then I spoke to one of my channel partners, who assured his help in finding a venue.
