About Us

We first came to Cluj and spent a weekend here, taking in the sights and sounds, walking around the beautiful cobbled streets, trying the coffee shops found every few metres (a dream for us being coffee lovers!), the cute little squares off the main Unirii Square, visiting some of the local tourist attractions and some amazing local bars and restaurants. 

We enjoyed it so much, we decided to come back to visit again, but for longer, get a feel of the city, the people, the food, the drink, the hospitality scene, and work from here to see how we felt; and we felt at home, wanted to move here - so we did!

With a vast network of contacts and 30 years of experience in events, recruitment and sales in the UK, we are able to help businesses grow their brand, product, revenue and customer base.  Our work has taken us across the whole of the UK from Leeds, Manchester, Shaftesbury, Winchester, York and London, from launching businesses, creating bespoke events and working with the likes of the BBC and Country Living Magazine.  We love connecting businesses with their ideal customers and the launch of the Cluj Card is making this a reality.  We also organise regular Business socials and networking events  to make for an inclusive, cohesive and collaborative business community and are excited to now be immersed in the Cluj community!
