A wonderful time was had at the first European Dating Awards held last week in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I was graced with both great company and gorgeous sunshine - what more could a girl want? The best of the best in the European dating industry rubbed shoulders as we spent the day soaking in shared knowledge at the Global Dating Insights conference and proceeded to head to The Dating Awards in the evening. Wowzers, what fun we had!
The dating industry finds itself in a position where it is often very hard to regulate the integrity of companies both online or offline and so The Dating Awards, founded by Charly Lester, set out two years ago to ensure that all companies operate with accountability. We have to show and prove our integrity to both our clients and each other in the industry, what an innovative and much needed initiative to keep all companies operating with solid ethics. I was so thrilled to not only be in attendance of the first European Dating Awards but to also be there as a finalist.
I was listed as finalist for Entrepreneur Of The Year 2016 and shared this prestigious category with a fabulous selection of biz savvy Entrepreneurs such as Saskia Nelson, David Vermeulen, Tim Taylor and Claes Settergren. I am also privileged to be heading up Simantov International as Global Matchmaker where we found ourselves as finalists in two categories; Best Matchmaking Agency 2016 & Best Customer Service 2016; what an honour. We joined a very select amount of reputable companies in said categories where excellence and expertise was both noted and awarded.
I am delighted to see the growth of The Dating Awards which endeavours to monitor matchmaking agencies, provide accountability to apps and indicate integrity to all others streams that sit in the onlinesphere of helping singles find their certain someone.
I had a blast and met some really wonderful individuals and companies that I will collaborate with and can say am happy co-exist with myself to add value to singles looking to navigate their path to finding love. Until next year EUDA!
