Mostly A’s

You may not know, WHAT or WHO you are looking for, but you are DEFINITELY looking. We applaud that. In fact, you are our favourite kind of attendee! From forums to the Christmas Luncheon, you know how to work the room and how to seek out that unexpected business opportunity, which has been lurking in the Trade Directory for years! Keep up the good work! However, no one is perfect - there is probably at least one event you have missed – got to our events page and sign up!


Mostly B’s

Maybe not the most naturally social networker, you still feel a bit uncomfortable being asked to stand up and sing snaps songs! Why not start by signing up to ALL our wonderful forums. There is no easier way than being served knowledge on a current topic or trend before being ushered towards the bar with a natural topic of conversation already given.  However, we strongly recommend that you work on your social skills too, as being a networker is important in London. Best sign up for ALL our social events as well – good practice and all that!


Mostly C’s

We strongly suspect that you might be one of your YP members. That’s alright, we welcome you too. While waiting to qualify for the SCC Membership, we strongly recommend you sign up to ALL of the YP events – one cannot start growing one’s network early enough! Don’t forget to keep an eye out for SCC events that you are allowed to go to – and then sign up for ALL of these as well.


Mostly D’s

We feel perhaps you may have a hidden agenda (unlike us with this quiz...) Our recommendation is that you should attend EVERYTHING until you find what you are looking for or realize that there are many companies out there worthy of your attention…

…Ok fine, make sure to come to the Retail Forum. Yes, yes…. someone from IKEA will be there.
