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 You’ve probably heard of the unpublished job market, where up to 50% of the job opportunities in a city are never advertised – in Victoria it’s more like 80-90%. Most positions are filled by word of mouth referrals and you’ll want to network to meet other people and uncover unpublished opportunities that could be perfect for you.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

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 90 minutes, 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.

“A lot of valuable information”

Mini Self-Care Retreat

Zen pebbles path. Spa and healthcare concept.If you’re a busy professional woman, give yourself permission to take an evening off and discover why practicing self-care is so important for you AND everyone else in your life. Learn why so many women don’t make taking care of themselves a priority and the impact this has on themselves and others.

Experience a 90 minute self-care workshop where you’ll take time to appreciate some of the qualities that make you special and leave with a plan to integrate more self-care into your life.

There will be some sharing, though this is purely optional. The key focus of this seminar is to create a space for you to do some thinking about what practicing more self-care could look like for you.

At 7:00 pm we’ll all retire to a special table set aside just for us in the McKenzie Lounge, at the Union Club for a delicious buffet supper that is included in the retreat price of only $74.50. Enjoying supper together will provide a wonderful opportunity to connect and get to know each other better.

The overwhelming feedback from participants in the Mini Self-Care Retreat is that they would recommend it to others and here’s what a recent participant, Deb Alcadinho had to say:

“Sue Maitland guides women in a 90 minute self-care workshop encompassing brainstorming, awareness and enlightenment. I had the pleasure of attending one of Sue’s recent workshops and found it extremely worthwhile. As a busy professional, it’s challenging to find time for myself but Sue brought to light some interesting things to ponder and an awareness of self that I had not previously taken the time to do. Thank you Sue for a great 90 minutes, followed by an scrumptious dinner at the Union Club. Highly recommended! ”

~ Deb Alcadinho, Founder & Director, Westshore Women’s Business Network (WWBN), Victoria BC
