Lemarc Thomas is an internationally renowned love matchmaker based in Stockholm, Sweden. How does this relate to the food system? Each guest on the Nordic FoodTech Podcast is asked what their vision for the future food system is and what they think we’re missing to get there. Without fail, every guest cites that we need more collaboration in order to action the big ideas we have. If that is our biggest collective need, then why not speak to an expert on relationships and bringing people together? In today’s conversation, we talk about what creates the basis for a strong relationship, how to identify one’s values and needs, navigating conflict, and bringing your whole self to work.

Thank you. Hello. Nice to be here.

Yes. And you are a matchmaker, but you are not maybe the kind of matchmaker people first think of. So, can you tell us what you do for a living?
Lemarc Thomas, Matchmaker 2:47
Yeah, so I mean, I'm helping people find love. I work with a number of people around the world, usually people who are quite well known or well accomplished, and I get a deep understanding of what they need in a relationship and then search for, assess, and introduce potentially compatible matches with them whilst also coaching them in conscious love.
