Networking for Success in Victoria

Eventbrite - Networking for Success in Victoria

This workshop is perfect for newcomers and local residents who want to develop their networking skills. If you don’t already have a job, or just 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. 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.

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 You’ve probably heard of the unpublished job market, where up to 50% of the job opportunities in a city are never advertised – in Victoria it’s more like 80-90%. Most positions are filled by word of mouth referrals and you’ll want to network to uncover unpublished opportunities that could be perfect for you. This two and a half hour workshop will give you tools and confidence to become a more confident 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 and you’ll discover some of the many opportunities that exist in Victoria to practice your networking skills.

You’ll also have the opportunity to book a complimentary one-on-one 15 minute coaching/support call to refine your 30 second introduction and get personalized advice to support you in achieving your networking goals.

Here’s what previous participants enjoyed the most:
Open friendly environment
Concrete resources and information to help me move forward with my networking
Well organized and presented
The authenticity of the coach
Small group, easy feel
Great handouts

What You Need to Know About Moving to Victoria

Eventbrite - What You Need to Know About Moving to Victoria

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.

Here’s what recent participants liked the most:

“A lot of valuable information”

Eventbrite - Career Fulfillment Weekend Retreat & Culinary Experience

Craving a More Fulfilled Life?

Are you a successful professional who knows you want to find more satisfying work, realize your potential, and utilize your best skills – the skills you love to use the most?

Do you feel stuck in a rut and demotivated and you yearn to wake up each morning excited for what the day ahead might bring; knowing that it will be full of people and activities that inspire you?

Have you fallen into a daily routine and filled your life with commitments that weigh you down and wish you could bring more of what fulfills your into your life – if only you knew what that meant for you?

Have you known for some time that you need to make some changes and yet somehow you never find the time and the energy to do that?

Do you secretly wonder if there’s something more you should be doing with your life and you wish you knew what that might be?

Did any of those statements resonate for you?

If any one of those statements is true for you, this weekend retreat could change your life. Even better, it;s been designed to be a fun weekend  which incorporates self-discovery and a delicious culinary experience plus a unique element – additional support from your workshop leader after you return home to help you integrate your discoveries into your life. 

Sometimes we need to step away from our everyday routine to be able to gain a new perspective and explore new possibilities that will bring us a greater sense of satisfaction, joy and fulfillment.

Isn’t this already sounding like something you want to sign up for?

Ready to Take Action and Do Something About It?

If the idea of bringing more joy and fulfillment into your work and personal life intrigues you and if you know you’re ready to do something about it, this weekend retreat in Victoria will help you kick-start the process. Even better, if you’re a foodie, this weekend is the perfect combination of personal exploration and culinary adventure. In his latest book Your Life’s Purpose: Uncover What Really Fulfills You, best-selling author Michael J. Losier defines fulfillment as knowing what brings you joy. Once you’re clear on that, you can create strategies to bring more of what gives you joy into your life. We’ll be leveraging Michael’s proven process to uncover your personal top fulfillment needsat the start of the retreat and then explore new possibilities for your future.

Are you ready to unlock the secrets of your top fulfillment needs?

Curious About the Culinary Experience?

As a self-professed foodie and proud member of Tourism Victoria, I wanted to create a weekend retreat on Vancouver Island that was both fun and enlightening.

I’ve partnered with award winning Chef Shirley Lang, owner of Spirit Culinary Excursions to create a culinary adventure on Saturday afternoon and evening where you’ll explore southern Vancouver Island’s culinary diversity and distinct landscape.

After a delicious lunch at one of Victoria’s top restaurants, a luxury limo will take you on a culinary adventure culminating in a delicious dinner at Unsworth Winery, one of the top wineries in the Cowichan Valley.

You’ll have the opportunity to converse with Sue, Chef Shirley and your fellow retreat participants in a fun and relaxed environment, while immersing yourself in some of the most tantalizing tastes Vancouver Island has to offer.

Love the idea of hanging out with other foodies while discovering what fulfills you?

What’s Included in the Retreat Package?

“The Commit to Self-Care Seminar was inspirational and I really enjoyed it. I loved the setting at the Union Club and the meal with the other participants was delicious and the perfect way to wrap up the evening”                                  Janet Duncan, Professional Hairstylist, Ginger Group
