Matchmaking is all about people and relationships, and this is what gives Soirée Society its unique selling point. The team at Soirée Society combines professional experience, backed by training and certification, with a keen eye for the intangible that could create a spark between two people. We know from our own experience that people's preconceived ideas can hinder the search for a partner and are often based on bias and deep-seated mis-conceptions. Our personal interaction with our clients helps encourage them to be more open and receptive and has given us a proven track record in introducing compatible people. You can be assured that your investment is being managed in your best interests by highly professional and credible individuals.
Following a successful career in Banking, Claire started her own consultancy business in 2013, specialising in business mentoring, event management, customer care and work life balance training.
The idea of organising events exclusively for unattached people came about after a conversation with a single friend who was in her mid-thirties and who described how difficult it is to meet an eligible partner.
This sparked the idea of an alternative to online dating sites and following extensive research the ‘Refreshingly Different’ Soirée Society NI was born.
The business has grown significantly with a large data base of clients throughout N.Ireland.
Since working closely with her clients and listening to their requirements, Claire has further developed the business, where the core business is now a bespoke personal introduction and Matchmaking Service.
Her years in business and in a happy marriage have given her tremendous insights into human relationships. She uses these, together with her empathetic and motivational interviewing skills, to gain a clear understanding of her clients’ needs.
Soirée Society recently won the' Best Upcoming Matchmaker Agency of the Year' at the UK Dating awards in London.
Commenting on Claire's success at the awards, Caroline Brealey, Head Judge said:
"I'm delighted that Claire's hard work and success has been recognised by the UK Dating Awards.
Claire has worked tirelessly to create Soirée Society which has been hugely successful in bringing people together. There are few people who have a genuine knack for personal matchmaking and Claire is one of them - she has an eye for a great match and the determination to help her clients find 'the one'."
Caroline concluded: "Claire is flying the flag for Northern Ireland in the dating industry and long may it continue."
