The University of Manitoba and the Canadian Institute of Management are pleased to invite you to our 1st Annual Professional Managers Symposium, a one-day professional development event to be held on April 29th, 2016 at the Victoria Inn, Winnipeg. This inaugural symposium is an opportunity for professional managers, CIM students and graduates, as well as current and emerging leaders to

  • explore proven leadership practices;
  • discuss leadership models that create a shared vision, build successful teams and inspire organizational change; and
  • gain better understanding of their personal leadership style.

You will convene with experts and colleagues to examine innovative approaches to leadership and reflect on the role of the manager as a leader. This forum will serve as an opportunity for networking and for increasing the awareness of management as a profession.

An exciting line-up of speakers coming from a wide range of backgrounds – including Winnipeg Free Press Business Reporter Martin Cash; the former national coach of the Irish and the Canadian field hockey team, Gene Muller; as well as accomplished leadership consultants Stephen DeGroot and Dianne McCoy – will discuss their transformative process of Manager to Leader, and reveal to you how this can positively impact your workplace and professional career.

CIM Winnipeg Branch Bronze Sponsor of the Q-Net Excellence Conference

July 17, 2012

The Canadian Institute of Management Winnipeg Branch was a Bronze Sponsor for the Q-Net Excellence Conference held at the Winnipeg Convention Centre on Thursday May 3rd, 2012.  As a Bronze Sponsor, CIM Winnipeg Branch was given an opportunity to set up an information booth for the benefit of the conference attendees.

To complement the CIM table, arrangements were made through the Q-Net conference organizers to have our partner, the University of Manitoba (also a Bronze sponsor), set up next to our table.  We were lucky to have Char Chastelaine, who is the UofM laison to the CIM Winnipeg Branch, work next to us.  Due to our ties, we were able to capitalize on our joint attendance.

"Partners in Education"

Throughout the day, several Winnipeg board members talked with participants about the Canadian Institute of Management, its Federal Charter, the Certified in Management Program and our educational partnership with the University of Manitoba.  We discussed the many benefits of our program with current and future leaders as well as answered any questions regarding the Certified In Management program.  We also took the opportunity to promote the CIM’s Professional Manager designation.

If you are having a leadership, management or supervisory event, please contact the CIM Winnipeg Branch to find out how we may be able to inform new and veteran managers of the benefits of the CIM program.
