MEET THE TEAM

"If you want something you've never had, you must be willing to do something you've never done"

JACQUI BAKER

FOUNDER MATCHMAKER & DATING COACH

Jacqui started this business as a result of becoming single over 2 years ago at the prime age of 53.  She tried online dating, but it just wasn’t for her.  

She felt she had left behind all the traits and qualities she really wanted to find in her new partner.  She also felt she had resorted to the superficial, fast and ruthless world of internet dating and past the game playing stage. 

She decided to look at mature singles events aimed at the quirky, higher end market, something that was not readily available or accessible for singles over 45.  

To compliment this, Jacqui has always had the instinct of matching friends, colleagues and acquaintances over the years.  This has now given her so much satisfaction and delight, paired with her singles event passion, it was and is her dream job.

MELINDA SMITH
MATCHMAKER, MENTOR, COACH

 

Melinda spent a large part of her life-giving career advice and playing matchmaker between job seekers and businesses.  She realised that the part she enjoyed was the relationship coaching  - helping employer and employee/job seeker to understand each other and invest in their relationship to harmoniously spend their work-life together.

 

Now an Internationally Accredited Coach Melinda uses coaching and NLP techniques to help her clients to look at their dating behaviours and move through any barriers they may have.  She assists them to establish healthy boundaries so they can get the best out of their dating experience. Melinda delivers mentoring and coaching on an individual and group basis, regularly delivering workshops on loss, confidence, and common dating misconceptions and fears. 

CAROL O'BRYNE

QUALIFIED GUIDANCE COUNCELLOR

& LIFE COACH

She initially trained as a Life Coach in 2007 after 20 years of working in a busy corporate environment in London and Dublin. She went on to develop and deliver personal development courses to clients who were experiencing periods of ‘being stuck’ and needing guidance on what was next?

Throughout the different stages of our life, there are particular times which we consider to be transitional. These are the times when we feel the need to take stock of our lives and really consider what is important to us going forward. Carol uses coaching tools which can contribute to how we develop our own self-awareness and in so doing envision possibilities for the future. She guides her clients gently into assessing their own needs and how it is possible to look at their situations through a different lens.
