We've Come a Long Way

Global Matchmaker, Amber Kelleher-Andrews, knows a thing or two about matchmaking highly successful people. When she was introduced to Sir. Richard Branson and Virgin Unite through mutual friends in 2013, it soon changed the way she looks at using her passion and skillset for connecting people beyond finding the love of their lives.  


Inspired by Richard and Virgin Unite’s passion for using business as a force for good, Amber enthusiastically accepted an invitation from Richard Branson to form a unique philanthropic partnership. Along with co-host Cindy Mercer and Alexander Grashow, Richard and Amber have since hosted a series of extraordinary Leadership Gatherings and collectively are responsible for raising significant funds for charity and encouraging business as a force for good globally. 


We are enthusiastically living out our dream of bringing together intimate groups of remarkable change-makers and international business leaders to collaborate together and make a significant difference in the world.
