Corinne Tessier is President of Affirming Workplace Solutions Inc, implementing workplace practices and systems that strengthen organizational capacity. She helps small to medium sized organizations create productive workplaces that attract great employees, keep them, and keep them on track.
Corinne is a former Executive Director for Alberta Women’s Enterprise Initiative, where she launched and built a successful organization that responded to over 15,000 women planning for, and running businesses. She has made her home in the business community as an accountant, controller, leader, consultant, facilitator, and business educator, and has expanded internationally with work in Indonesia. In addition, she has started and operated four small businesses of her own.
As a leader and manager, Corinne has brought productivity and profitability to numerous businesses and non-profit organizations over the last three decades. Her innovative workplace practices led to her being nominated twice for Ernst and Young’s ‘Entrepreneur of the Year Award’, and being featured in 1999 as one of ‘Alberta’s 50 Most Influential People’ by Alberta Venture Magazine. But her most treasured recognition is a silver cup from the first group of staff she ever managed, with ‘Boss of the Year’ engraved on it.
She holds a Certified Management Accountant (CMA) designation and a Masters degree in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Calgary. In 2003 she received the honorary designation of Fellow of the Society of Management Accountants of Canada (FCMA) in recognition of lifetime contribution to the profession and the community. Continuing a 30-year history of volunteering, she currently serves as a board member for the Immigrant Access Fund Society, and mentors young entrepreneurs.
The skills she is most noted for are: developing business and financial systems that support people in their work and lay the foundation for growth, facilitating planning and strategic initiatives, managing finances, micro-loan development, fund development, and delivering training workshops. Corinne believes true organizational success and sustainability happen when we ‘build structure based on believing in people’, and is currently writing a book called ‘Redeeming the Workplace’.
Corinne and her husband Robert live in Canada, and are not at all artistically inclined, though their creative adult son Lucas makes up for them. They love hiking in other countries though, and are happy to relate some memorable sojourns about ‘roughing it’ high in the Bolivian Andes.
