INSPIRING GREATNESS

with MARK RODGERS, President & CEO, Habitat for Humanity Canada

Whether we are aware or not, every leader experiences a "defining moment" in their life that becomes the catalyst to their leadership journey. It's a moment that fortifies their motivation and mission in life and leadership.

Leaders will frequently look back at this moment as a tipping point in their life that continues to bolster their resolve in challenging times, and illuminates their vision for the future. It also becomes the source of strength and inspiration in how they influence others. True leaders breathe life into those around them, and ultimately inspire greatness in those that follow them.

KEYNOTE PRESENTATION

COLLABORATION AND THE STRATEGIC ROLE OF FINANCE

BUILDING OF THE CANADIAN MUSEUM FOR HUMAN RIGHTS

with SUSANNE ROBERTSON, Chief Financial Officer, Canadian Museum for Human Rights

In September 2008, Susanne Robertson, as one of two employees, knew she had her work cut out for her. The Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) was the first national museum slated for construction in Canada in over forty years. There was no blueprint or "how to" guide for a project of this magnitude. Nearly every system and structure had to be built from scratch. Now, nearly nine years and over 200 employees later, the CMHR is a highly successful institution, with hundreds of thousands of visitors and incredible exhibitions and programming.

Susanne will share lessons learned in the building a national museum from the ground up and how her understanding of the important role of finance transformed. She came to realize the importance of not just crunching numbers, but of also building solid relationships, and of taking a very broad business perspective. In the end, she learned that when working on a project as large as the CMHR, finance has to look at the big picture... and not be afraid get involved in everything.

PANEL PRESENTATION

FINANCE AND PROCUREMENT - BRIDGING THE DIVIDE

Panelists:
MARTIN MONTANTI, Vice-President, Corporate Services, Southern Health;
CORINNE EVASON, Contracts Manager, Materials Management Division, City of Winnipeg;
DEREK COCKBURN, Senior Manager, Financial Management Office, British Columbia Public Service Agency (BCPSA)
Moderator: REGAN WINDSOR, SCM Business Support Department Manager, Manitoba Hydro;

The function of procurement often, but not always, reports to Finance. Regardless of the reporting relationship, it is important for senior financial managers to understand the complexity of the procurement function and its potential for impacts on the performance of the organization. In this session, a panel of senior executives will share aspects of their respective functions and elaborate on how these functions could work more collaboratively together.
