The Merit Club team

The Merit club was born in 2017 out of a need I felt while working for a big corporation. I had no time to waste, barely enough to fit everything in, let alone find new things to experience. I often relied on friends’ invitations to discover new things or when I ventured out, I more than once ended up at an event where someone was trying to sell me something or was spending my evening at a dodgy location... I wanted a brand I could trust, that I know would only recommend me quality things to do, where I can meet with like-minded people and know that my time will always be well invested. So I decided to join a very well known members’ club around this time, paying hundreds and hundreds of pounds to be part of something where I was hoping to get this. While it was great and I got exposed to a lot of different experiences, there was a niggling thought in my head that didn’t leave me alone - why does all of this have to be about what industry we work in and how much money we have? Joining a club like that is a privilege that only a few can afford, but shouldn’t it be about our ambition to explore, do quality things and to connect with other people instead?

Merit was born because I want to change that. I want to create better opportunities for women to connect and help them access these highly sought after places, which let’s be honest are often heavily male-dominated.

The Merit Club membership is limited to a 1000 and we are soon to approach our waitlist. It isn’t for everyone, but those who take their future seriously and want to connect with other amazing women, this membership might just give you that inspiration and connections you need to get ahead in life.

I can’t wait to welcome you in our community!

What we do

Every month we bring you interesting events to take part in, introduce you to new brands, luxury venues, and female experts so that you can discover and broaden your horizon, make real connections, while also offering you a little extra perk with them. We strive to make the unattainable accessible to you, the unknown familiar, and create an environment which is truly about You, your personal discovery and development. 

We created The Merit Club, an online members' club for women with a mission to help you enliven your schedules and enrich your lifestyle while connecting you to a striving community of women through our events. This community is based on support and curiosity and we would love you to be part of it!

Ladders, Stepping Stones and Our Journey So Far ...

So often women in today's society feel under pressure to be super-human. It's a juggling act. Excel at work, keep fit, make time to meet family and friends, discover new places, do different things, keep on top of everything; all the time trying not to become boring. Then, on top of this, we all know deep-down that we also need a little time for ourselves. It's impossible, and something always needs to give.

What if there could be a community that accepts all of this, the pitfalls and craziness of our modern-day lives, and looks the other way? 

We wish to shift our day-to-day focus away from these routine stepping stones and towards sources of personal discovery and development, where your time outside of work is as important! We want to add sparkle to our week-days, with ways to reach beyond our working diaries that are solely for us, our personal development, and our curiosity.


Finding interesting events and expanding your network shouldn't simply be about who you work for, and what industry you are in, what career you have, and how much money you may be earning. 

We want to invigorate week-nights and make the process accessible and easy. 

Signing up to The Merit Club is simply about having the right attitude and ambition, with the enthusiasm to broaden your engagement to new spheres, topics and activities.  


The problem we see is that our careers and social lives are generally so consuming, that people rarely have the energy to expand beyond routine. That's why we have decided to create a platform that makes it easy for anyone to see what is going on around them with minimal effort invested. Every experience we recommend to you and every event we bring to you has passed our quality checklist to ensure you add value to your free time and never feel like you wasted it.


Dilemmas and problems are sprung upon us everyday. Let's face it, life can be unpredictable and downright difficult at times! We hope that The Merit Club, through our events and our online platforms, might just give you some answers to your problems, big or small, or at least widen your outlook and provide you with new directions to pursue. 

Signing up is simply about having the right attitude and ambition, with the enthusiasm to broaden your engagement to new ideas, spheres, and activities. With our round-the-clock work diaries and hectic social calendars, it's often difficult to invest any time in ourselves and discover new things, even if they're right at our fingertips or just on our doorstep. That's why a Merit Club membership will enlighten you to exciting new experiences that are going on around you, with unique and inspiring things to do, listen to, or read about, that will all add a little sparkle to your week-days. 

A Merit Club membership also gives you a unique opportunity to try out some of London's most exclusive private members clubs, spas and experiences. Our partnerships are growing month on month and we are so excited to share some special surprises with you! Little perks brighten up your day, and trust that a Merit Club membership will bring you plenty!
