Re-invent your time

Time is the great equalizer for all and it is Ivy’s mission to inspire and enable you in spending it valuably. We live in a digital, high-paced and demanding era which leaves little time for self-care and the joys of life.

In today’s world with an abundance of expectations, we can find ourselves having a hard time finding love. It can actually be a true challenge no matter your social calendar or status. Divorce rates are on the increase, the dating scene more elusive than ever before and the fear of connecting on a human level is feeding loneliness.

Returning to the basics; taking time to breathe and take in that view, truly devouring that special moment or just breaking away and prioritizing your personal life might just be what you need to find that desired balance and regenerate with positive energy.

At Ivy we believe in and are inspired by professional success, in being ambitious and reaching goals. Yet even more so, we believe that time waits for no one and we have to make the most of every day.

  • “At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet.”


Can’t buy me love


We believe that life is not complete without love, passion and profound requited relationships. We know that genuine connections are hard to find and we know that finding your partner in crime can be an elusive quest, even more so for successful and high-flying persons. But we know that a perfect partner with shared values, a similar lifestyle and perhaps a like-minded philosophy really is out there for each of us – in more ways than one.

With a vast global network of high-caliber clients and contacts across the globe, we can broaden your horizon significantly. We have the ability to connect people that would not meet in the normal course of life, which simply allows for extraordinary things to happen.

But let’s be clear, true human connections cannot be bought. Through the use of various resources and highly-skilled team of experts, the best of opportunities can be created; yet they then need to be seized delicately.

Passionately and with a vast amount of combined know-how, we strive to bring back the classic way of dating, the gentleman’s ways and the worth of genuine conversation.

With a bespoke service designed to each of our member’s individual requirements we are here to coach, guide, inspire, at times challenge as well as instigate our clients. It’s all about investing in yourself and your future. Everything we do is personal, discrete and executed with the highest level of professionalism.

James Eves

London Expert Consultant Read More

James Eves


James had always taken a lot of pride in his own appearance and during his time as a Personal Trainer other men started asking him to help them with theirs, invariably to get an edge at work or with women – to look more like a leader, to be taken seriously and to feel attractive. Naturally, his career as a style expert grew organically from there.

His approach to men’s style is both simple and holistic. It’s about exuding good health, vitality and confidence. To make the best of what we have been given and to be truly comfortable in one’s own skin. James believes that our outward style must be aligned with our inner character and personality.  The clothes we decide to wear are only a small part of this. Fitness, etiquette and class are some of the other aspects James can assist with.

Not a fashionista, a designer or a trend setter or anything of the sort. James has simply taken on the important task of helping men show their best inner self on the outside too.
