Since 2011 my work has taken a decidedly national turn with many visits in every province and territory for research and consultations, training workshops, client projects and conference presentations and keynotes.
To facilitate growing demand and durably expand my client portfolio I have opened a second office in Whitehorse, Yukon in September 2015. You might wonder why Whitehorse? It’s simple: I love the freedom of the Northern landscapes and its magnificent mountains and I have been making friends and working with colleagues who do inspiring work, leading work, at the edges of this vast country. The Yukon has an amazing scene that makes Whitehorse and Dawson brim with arts and culture of all sorts; winters are even busier than summers for all the music, theatre and community activities.
I am thrilled and grateful to work with remarkable clients in Ottawa, too. I take great care to ensure we have plenty of time for face-to-face meetings as much of the impact of our work together lies in the deeper discussions of research findings and insights and the decision-making on implications and next steps.
As I have done for the first nine years of Strategic Moves, I continue to partner with research companies, marketers, creatives and digital whizzes whenever a project benefits from a larger team to deliver the desired results.
Splitting my time between Ottawa and Whitehorse means I have a new favourite airline: Air North has established a twice weekly, direct flight between Ottawa and Whitehorse with a short stop-over in Yellowknife. That means a commute of merely 7 hours to shuttle between my offices: shorter than any other airline and usually cheaper, too.
Finally, contact information is unchanged. As always you can reach me at:
- 613-558-8433 (mobile, text – gotta love those “long distance included” plans)
- Skype @ inga.petri
- WebEx for online meetings.
All to say, I am as accessible as ever and the high degree of responsiveness my clients are accustomed to will continue to be my calling card.
My physical whereabouts in the next few months, pending any additional conferences, workshops and client meetings:
- Ottawa, ON – until October 7
- Wells, BC – October 8 to 13
- Whitehorse, YT – October 14 to 26
- Kelowna, BC – October 27 to 31

I’m excited to increase Strategic Moves’ footprint and to see what new opportunities and connections it will bring about.
