PSMW - Public Sector Management Workshop - Understand The Big Drivers of Change

Artificial Intelligence (AI). Remote work. Flexibility, diversity, and inclusion. Cybersecurity and stealth attacks. These are among the hottest topics facing a fast-changing public sector today. What do they mean for financial and HR managers in a post-COVID world?

That’s the overriding question that will be addressed by this year’s in-person PSMW event in Halifax, Nova Scotia, June 6 – 7, 2022, with a pre-event welcome reception on Sunday, June 5th.

Shifting Tides: Disruption, Diversity & Digital provides two information packed days with a mix of plenary sessions and keynote presentations – all focused-on the themes of disruption, diversity, and the impact of digital trends.

With fmi*igf now in it’s 60th celebratory year, PSMW will once again bring up to 275 financial managers and HR professionals together from across the country to share ideas, network, and learn from each other as well as from respected thought leaders and subject matter experts.

This year’s annual event takes place in beautiful Halifax with several exciting, optional events that dramatically extend the social and networking value.
