The Regional Tune Up series will resume for the 2018-19 fiscal year. Due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback we received from previous events, this summer’s FI-exclusive Winnipeg Tune Up will be another free full-day event of informative and inspiring speakers, updates on ACFO initiatives and enjoying meals with your colleagues.

Sessions and speakers

The event will take place on Wednesday, August 29, at the Radisson Hotel (288 Portage Ave) and feature an engaging half-day workshop with emotional intelligence expert Carolyn Stern. Carolyn specializes in helping professionals maximize their potential and has helped thousands of people, including nearly 200 FIs, increase their self-confidence, make decisions and solve problems under pressure. Carolyn will apply her insight into the strengths and struggles of the FI Community to help each FI enhance their emotional intelligence and apply their newfound knowledge to improve their professional and personal lives.

The day will also include a presentation from the Office of the Comptroller General (OCG) on developing the FI competencies and a town-hall-style lunch from ACFO. A more detailed schedule will be available shortly, but sessions are expected to run from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.


Attendance is free and open to all ACFO members. To register, please contact us at specifying you would like to register for the Winnipeg Tune Up. Please also mention any dietary restrictions, as a continental breakfast and three-course lunch will be served.

In addition, ACFO events are classified as training for FIs, so please contact us should you have any questions or concerns about getting approval from your employer to attend.

This year’s Regional Tune Up events are funded through the Joint Career Development Program (JCDP) managed by ACFO and the OCG.
