Event Details


After last year’s successful conference on Disruption, this year the CIMA Conference will focus on The Future of Work.  We will take a look into the future to explore how work will be shaped by exponential changes like machine learning, virtually free data storage and communication, ever-increasing computational power that rival some human capabilities, and demographic shifts that are changing the nature of the workforce.   These developments will change what a “job” means, affecting the work we do and how we do it, and changing the way we develop and provide education and continuing professional development for the workforce of the future.

Guests of Honor
Steve Swientozielskyj
President, CIMA

Barry Melancon
CEO, Association of International Certified Professional Accountants,
President and CEO, American Institute of CPAs

Keynote Speaker
Stephen Harrington
National Lead – Talent Strategy, Deloitte

Stephen has been a writer and speaker on the future of work and the workplace of the future since 2011. With 18 years’ experience in Consulting, Stephen leads transformations in talent strategy that enable organizations to feel personal purpose and impact, as the business drives improved results.  Stephen is co-author of The Intelligence Revolution – Future Proofing Canada’s Workforce, in partnership with the HR Professionals Association of Ontario.

Over the next decade, the future of work will be shaped by a new force, and it will affect the work we do and how we do it, changing what a job means. Canadians can thrive in this new world of work if we act boldly now.

Stephen will introduce a series of new work archetypes, based on the future-proofed capabilities he believes Canadians will need to succeed. His presentation will also highlight recommendations and key considerations for government leaders, businesses, and workers themselves to help put Canada on the path to success.
