Why Mai Tai? Quite simply, Mai Tai is my favourite cocktail and it's Tahitian for very good. Of course, cocktails are all about having a good time, relaxing and having fun. Which is exactly what we want to offer people, a chance to enjoy what life has to offer.
As a Londoner, I am truly proud of my city, after all, I live in one of the best cities in the world! London has so much to offer in both the social and professional scene. Over the years I have met so many cool people, attended great workshops, classes and events which have all been good fun. With so many good experiences I thought that it would be awesome if every professional Londoner had a more convenient way to access the perfect work/life balance so I am inviting you to come and discover a London you have not yet met.
These days connection is all about poking, liking or winking. People laugh at me for only having twenty one friends on Facebook but the truth is that as everyone’s virtual friendship groups keep growing really quickly, ironically this is often done in the solitary confinement of their own homes, where there is little opportunity for actual face to face interaction. I want to coax people out of their onesies and back into the city where the real fun is happening. Don’t get me wrong I love Netflix and I think they really know me well but Mai Tai has access to the biggest and best events in London and I am personally inviting you to come and join us.
My background in Biology has led me to explore the science of falling in love in detail and although it sounds smoochy I want to offer an alternative to online dating that doesn't already exist! Although finding a partner in the city is time-consuming for busy professionals the package we offer will make it easier for people to connect with each other in great restaurants and become friends or even something more. I am passionate about using innovation and tech to bring people together in new & interesting ways #GetOnline2GetOffline.
And finally, pulling off a project this fantastic takes a lot of time and effort and I have had a great team around me to make this happen. So big shout out to the rest of the Mai Tai team who helped the business plan become a reality.
