        What Matchmakers Are Saying

      The Matchmakers Conference was really well designed, masterfully produced and it was so rewarding and FUN to share and conspire with matchmakers from all over the U.S. and beyond.  To have the conference on a cruise ship? Brilliant! Count me in on the next one!" - Julie FermaneLove & Cupid's Coach

      The 2012 Matchmakers Cruise was an amazing experience! The level of engagement among the matchmakers and dating coaches attending from throughout North America was incredibly fulfilling.  In my experience, running a thriving matchmaking business is very much a function of investing the precious resources of time, energy, and money wisely.  Given how valuable I consider my 2012 cruise investment, very much looking forward to doing it again in 2013! -Jasbina AhluwaliaIntersections Match

      As a new matchmaker to the industry, I greatly enjoyed the Matchmakers Conference.  Michelle and Maria presented us with an organized agenda that fully outlined each days topics.  We also received complete bio's of all matchmakers/dating coaches attending which was especially useful to me.  Most surprising was how warmly I was received by my fellow peers and how willing they were to share their experiences and welcome me to the industry.  I am now working closely with several I met at your event.  I am looking forward to your next event where I will learn more and share once again with this wonderful group of ladies (and a gentleman:). - Lisa DarsonvalSanta Barbara Matchmaking
