I am Cathy Brewer. I created the company in January, 2001. We were the first speed dating company in Calgary and celebrated our 500th event February 14, 2014 by achieving a Guinness World Record for the largest speed dating event in one venue when we hosted 651 speed daters at the Spark Science Centre. We are the oldest speed dating company in Canada.
After 7 exciting years serving Calgary's singles, I sold Calgary Speed Dating to Catherine and Don. They are a testament to finding love at a speed dating event. They came to one of the events, went for coffee and they are married now! Okay, it wasn't really love at first sight.... They'd matched with others as well. But after a few short months of dating, they knew they had something special and chose exclusivity and in March, 2014, they tied the knot.
After selling them the company, I moved out to "The Middle of Nowhere", B.C., intending to live there in the peace and tranquility of nature. Life seldom turns out as we plan, throwing us curves and sometimes when life 'zigs', we have to 'zag'. Coming home to friends and family in Calgary was the answer. Buying back my company was the most natural thing in the world. So, here I am working with Calgary's singles community, setting up opportunities for people to find friends, love and fun.
I am a Calgarian. Over the years many, many speed dating companies have come and gone. Some promising as many as 25 dates, some from huge international corporations, some expanding their franchise from Vancouver, etc. Somehow my company is the 'last man standing'. I think it's because the others are only interested in a quick buck, not their clients. You can always reach someone by text or phone at my company (or you'll get a callback) and I will always answer your emails.
Speed dating is a great way to have fun while meeting a lot of new people in one night. Why not give it a try? What have you got to lose?
