What do you love about your job?

I love meeting guests at events - everyone has a different story and it's nice to join up a random group of people and watch the chemistry unfold.

Any tips on what to talk about or what to avoid on a speed date?

Avoid talking about work and anything too heavy like religion/politics as you need more than 4 minutes! A good way to see what you have in common is to bring up topics you are passionate about (travel, cooking, sports etc) and see how your date responds. It's always great to hear about what gets people going and if you are enthusiastic about the same things it's a great base to build from.

I used to host SpeedDater events in Norwich many, many moons ago. Loved it so much that I returned to the fold again in October 2014!

What is your favourite thing about hosting?

The events always attract a lovely bunch of fun and interesting folk, and there's always plenty of positivity in the room (at the risk of sounding like a hippy). Moreover, the possibility that someone could find their life partner at one of the events is quite an awe-inspiring thought - there's already been one marriage (that I'm personally aware of), so now I'm waiting for the next! Err, what else? Well...ahem, I once played Cilla Black in a school production of 'Blind Date'... so make of that what you will!
