An Evening for Newcomers to Mix & Mingle

Register HERE with Eventbrite

Did you recently move to Victoria?

Would you like to meet others who moved to Victoria in the past few months or even the past few years?

It can sometimes take a little while to find your feet and make new connections in Victoria – this event will help you do that.

I’m Sue Maitland and I’m a speaker, workshop leader and coach and for some time now, I’ve been delivering free information sessions to new residents of all ages and demographics with my “inside scoop” on living in Victoria. I also offer a workshop monthly on Networking for Success in Victoria. I’ve shared valuable insights on making the most of living in Victoria with hundreds of people who are new to the city.

Many of the participants in my free info sessions and workshops expressed an interest in staying connected and this event provides an ideal opportunity to do that.

Now for the first time ever, I’m inviting newcomers to an event where they can mix and mingle with others who are new to the city in an informal and relaxed setting while learning some valuable tips about making the most of living in Victoria from a local expert.

You’ll have the opportunity to play my signature “Connections Game” – a fun and comfortable way to meet new people and win valuable prizes.

You’ll hear some of the “insider tips” that I share in my info sessions and networking for success workshops. I’ll also invite participants to share some of the things they’ve discovered they most enjoy about the city.

Join me and make some new and interesting connections while enjoying tasty nibbles (including vegan options) in a welcoming atmosphere at the Hawk & Hen restaurant in downtown Victoria.

If you’ve already attended one of my newcomer talks or workshops, this could be an ideal opportunity to catch up with some of the people you’ve already met and learn what they’ve been up to.

If you haven’t yet attended my free info session or networking for success workshop, consider attending one of my events before this evening of connecting and you’ll feel even more prepared and comfortable with getting out and meeting new people at this and other networking events.

Networking is an essential skill in Victoria. I hope you’ll join us and take advantage of this opportunity make new connections at this fun evening event.

Book your ticket TODAY and take advantage of Early Bird pricing – in effect until April 30, 2018.

Please Note: While a great selection of appies and the chance to win valuable prizes are included in your ticket price, beverages are excluded from the ticket price and are the responsibility of individual event participants. Please drink responsibly.

Register HERE through Eventbrite

If you’re a professional or a business owner who’s thinking of moving to Victoria, or have recently moved to this beautiful city, this talk is perfect for you.

You’ll find Victoria is unlike any other city you’ve ever lived in. Sue moved here over 25 years ago and it was her best move ever, however she was surprised to discover how many people move to Victoria and don’t always have such a positive experience.

Sue has now dedicated a key area of her coaching practice to helping professionals and business owners who want to move to Victoria, determine if this move is right for them and if it is, help them enjoy a smooth and successful transition. Sue also helps newcomers to Victoria who want to take full advantage of all the city has to offer and would like the support of a professional life & career transitions coach who knows the city and how it works. Sue helps people through info sessions like this one, workshops and one-on-one coaching.

In 2 short hours, Sue will share valuable information including a profile of Victoria residents, the climate, the job market, the full range of outdoor and indoor activities, the interesting makeup of local government and perhaps most valuable of all, her inside scoop on what it takes to fully embrace living in Victoria. There’ll be time for Q&A, networking with other participants and some surprise special offers too.

While some information will be provided that will be relevant for families, this event is in a small group setting and is specifically designed for adults.

Space is limited, so don’t hesitate, reserve your FREE seat immediately to avoid disappointment and get the inside scoop on living in Victoria from a local expert.

Here’s what recent participants liked the most:

“A lot of valuable information”
“The structured approach and the way the information was delivered”
“Well organized”
“Friendly atmosphere”
“Good use of my time”

If you’re a newcomer to Victoria, consider also attending Sue’s workshop “Networking for Success in Victoria“. It includes a 1-on-1 strategy session to help you unlock the secrets to the best places for you to network in Victoria based on your goals. This has proved an invaluable investment to many newcomers to Victoria. You may also wish to connect with Sue at 778-265-6880 or via email at SueMaitland@shaw,ca to request a complimentary “Welcome to Victoria” phone call.

Networking for Success in Victoria (Includes a 1-on-1 strategy session)

Register with Eventbrite NOW

This workshop is perfect for newcomers and local residents who want to develop their networking skills.

If you’re between jobs, or want to look for new opportunities, or simply want to make new friends in Victoria, networking is a critical skill, yet many people have a strong aversion to the concept of networking. They may think it means being “salesy” or ‘fake” and yet it doesn’t have to be that way. It can be especially difficult for those of us who are introverts. I’ll share my Ultimate Action Plan to help you to show up at networking events in a confident and authentic way. It will reduce your stress and change your perception of networking and you may find yourself looking forward to networking events rather than dreading them. I’ll even give you tips for dealing with someone who is a little too pushy about promoting themselves or a product or service they provide.

If you’re looking for work in Victoria, networking is essential. You’ve probably heard of the unpublished job market, where up to 50% of the job opportunities in a city are never advertised – in Victoria it’s more like 80-90%. Most positions are filled by word of mouth referrals and you’ll want to network to meet other people and uncover unpublished opportunities that could be perfect for you.

This two and a half hour workshop will give you the tools and confidence to become a more effective networker, even if you’ve never done it before. If you’re a newcomer, you may also find you make some good connections with local residents at the workshop and I’ll unlock the secret to the many and varied organizations, places and events in Victoria where you can network.

In addition to the workshop, you’ll enjoy a 1-on-1 telephone strategy session with your workshop leader to help you refine your 30 second introduction and zero in on the best places for you to network based on your goals.

Previous participants have shared that they enjoyed the open friendly environment, the small group format, the concrete handouts, resources and information and the authenticity of the workshop leader.

Here’s what Shkendie Kaba, Founder and Owner of Kaba Immigration Services had to say about her experience:

“Sue’s enthusiastic and passionate style made the whole experience exceptionally uplifting and motivating. She was so generous with her knowledge and practical tips on networking for success. The tools and resources she shared with us were beyond my expectations and I started using them right away.”

If you have questions, please call Sue at 778-265-6880 or via email at SueMaitland@shaw,ca and she’ll help you decide if this would be a beneficial event for you attend.

If you’re a newcomer to Victoria, consider also attending Sue’s free monthly information session “An Insiders Guide to Moving to Victoria” or request a complimentary “Welcome to Victoria” phone call.
