Dear Members and Friends

One of the scourges of our times is the transactional nature of interaction between so many of us. The motivation for too many people seems to be “what can I get from this person today?” Once that transaction is completed, you never hear from or see that person for a very long time, if at all. It’s the equivalent of walking up to a person at a networking reception and opening with: “I just want to pass you my business card.” Why would anyone think that was a good idea?

Interactions between human beings should be polite, considerate and non-transactional in nature. Have a word for everyone. Courtesy costs nothing and, yet, is worth so much. Relationships take time to build and nurture. All relationships worth their salt are always 2-way streets. Most of you know this which is why you are constituents of the ecosystem with an edge that is SICC.

You know and appreciate the power of relationships. They drive collaboration, friendships, innovation and connections. Quality relationships were on display last week at our Q2 Networking Reception. They will be on display again at our AGM Luncheon on 22 June 2023 when we host our Guest of Honour Ms. Indranee Rajah, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office, Second Minister for Finance and Second Minister for National Development.

This is the last call to purchase your seat or book your corporate table. Registrations close on 1st June 2023.

Strengthen your existing relationships, entertain your colleagues, customers and business partners and benefit from dialoguing with the Minister on the best ways to develop and look after people to achieve optimal business outcomes. Click on this link for full event details:

Relationships matter. See you on 22 June.

Yours faithfully
Victor Mills
Chief Executive
