An Insider's Guide to Moving to Victoria

Sunday, June 13, 2021 (1:00 PM - 3:00 PM) (PDT)


Discover what makes Victoria different from other cities, meet other newcomers and learn insider tips on how to make your move to Victoria smooth and successful.

This seminar has helped 100’s of newcomers to Victoria and participants frequently say “I wish I’d met you and learned this information when I first arrived in Victoria.”

If you’ve moved to Victoria in the past few years, you’ll find it’s unlike any other city you’ve ever lived in. I moved here almost 30 years ago and it was the best move I ever made, however I was surprised to discover how many people fall in love with the idea of living in Victoria and move here without doing their research. That can sometimes mean that they don’t always have such a smooth transition.

I’ve now dedicated a key area of my coaching practice to helping professionals, business owners and retirees determine if moving to Victoria is right for them and if it is, helping them enjoy a smooth and successful transition. I also help 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. I help people through seminars, networking training events, online workshops and for those who want more personalized support – one-on-one coaching.

In this seminar I’ll share valuable information that isn’t easy to find elsewhere, including a profile of Victoria residents, the job market, the full range of outdoor and indoor activities, the interesting makeup of local government and perhaps most valuable of all, my 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. All participants receive an 8-page handout with valuable links to relevant resources for newcomers.

Hundreds of people have benefited from attending my seminars and workshops. I deliver this as a community service and just because it’s free please don’t assume the information isn’t valuable. I can tell you that scores of people have told me they wish they’d met me and learned this information when they first arrived in Victoria.

Here’s what recent participants said about this event:

The information Sue has collected over her many years of experience living in Victoria and her networks is pure GOLD.”

Sue you are doing awesome work – please continue!!”

Another Ideal Event for Newcomers to Victoria:

If you’re a newcomer to Victoria, or planning to move here soon, consider investing in Sue’s half-day Networking for Success workshop which comes with an incredibly valuable 1-on-1 strategy call after the workshop.

The ability to network effectively is an essential skill anywhere, and it’s especially important in Victoria, whether you want to make friends, find a job or connect with potential clients. This half-day workshop includes a 1-on-1 strategy session after the workshop to help you refine your introduction and unlock the secrets to the best places for you to network based on your goals. You’ll also commit to some specific actions to grow your network. This has proved an invaluable investment for hundreds of newcomers to Victoria and many have begun to build a network virtually even before arriving in town. This powerful workshop is also popular with professionals in career transition and established locals who want to expand their networking activities. These workshops are held bi-monthly. Checkout the Live Events page of Sue’s website for the next workshop Sue Maitland's Live Events
