OPW -- If you have any interest in the business of matchmaking, I'd recommend you consider attending the Matchmakers Conference this Friday and Saturday. You might also want to stick around for the matchmakers training on Sunday, which is included. ~100 matchmaking industry executives, top level matchmakers, marketers and press will be in attendance. The matchmaking industry is the antithesis of the online dating industry in many ways. I'm looking forward to learning from the Yentas, and figuring out how to pair the two industries together more effectively.
I'll be keynoting along with Helen Fisher of Chemistry.com/Match.com. Master matchmaker Julie Ferman is moderating. Paul Falzone from The Right One & Together Dating, Evan Marc Katz from e-cyrano, Bill Broadbent from Instinct Marketing, Patrick Perrine from myPartner, and Violet Lim from Lunch Actually in Singapore will be speaking amongst others.
