The Western Australian Information Technology & Telecommunications Association Inc. is a non-partisan, non-aligned alliance of ICT and digital industry and professional stakeholder organisations and thought leaders – the people who provide the digital knowledge, technology and services to the WA community. Our Vision By 2022, WAITTA will be recognised as the advocacy group for ICT innovation in Western Australia. Our Mission & Purpose To promote the Western Australian ICT industry and profession by showcasing excellence through awards, events and recognition programs. Our Values Honesty ● Integrity ● Commitment ● Respect WAITTA is a not-for-profit incorporated association, administered in accordance with the WAITTA Constitution which defines corporate governance, financial accountability and matters relating to rules and membership of incorporated associations. WAITTA’s Constitution is compliant with the Associations Incorporations Act 2015. 2 | WAITTA Annual Report 2021

Professor Lyn Beazley AO FAA FTSE I write this as the proud Patron of WAITTA, an organisation that I wholeheartedly support as I continue to witness the power of our programs including the Incite Awards, the ‘Awards Nights’ and the Game Changer schools initiative. Each year WAITTA’s influence grows with positive impacts for the entire West Australian community and beyond. I was first introduced to WAITTA whilst I was Chief Scientist of Western Australia (2006-2013) and have been delighted to continue to be part of the WAITTA family ever since. This year in particular we have seen a wonderful new team of energetic volunteers come on board, who have ensured that WAITTA thrives despite the disruption of a pandemic-ridden world. Certainly, we already appreciated that we live in a world where Information Technology (IT) impacts every aspect of our lives, however COVID really reinforced that. We all needed to pivot, the word on all our lips, and IT underpinned that. Working from home, online meetings, shopping from home as never before and home schooling are just a few examples. In the health field, IT has been the backbone of scientific progress from unravelling the original genetic sequence of this new viral entity, to developing tests and then rapidly identifying and tracking each new variant. Developing vaccines has been a major achievement, again innovation heavily reliant on IT. As we seek to emerge from the pandemic, we know that many sectors will continue to depend on IT. These include health, education, the resources and manufacturing industries, construction, agriculture and commerce to entertainment, travel and tourism: in other words, almost everything! Indeed, the record number of entries for our Incite Awards this year reflects this amazing diversity. It was especially heartening to see entries from across the size spectrum of West Australian innovation too, from our major resource companies, universities and TAFEs to home-based enterprises. We know that the world tunes in to our awards program, meaning that WAITTA is a great way to showcase Western Australia to the world. Let’s hope that, as for last year, some of current entrants for the Incite Awards again attract international interest this year. Congratulations to everyone involved in WAITTA. It is a great way to ensure that Western Australia’s cutting-edge IT sector is encouraged, recognised and supported. It is all part of ensuring that our State has a great future not just economically but environmentally, socially and culturally. WAITTA Annual Report 2021 | 3

Andrea Dearden WAITTA has enjoyed another successful year and continues to excel in the delivery of our awards programs and events. This year we delivered more with less and with new Board members, volunteers and sponsors, celebrating our 30th year running the WA ICT Innovation Awards INCITE, expanding out to regional areas in recognition of our young people exceling in STEM for the Game Changers Awards, and hosting our very first charity golf day putt4dough, in support of Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation. The Board welcomed new Board members including Michael Lester and Keith Morrison, and farewelled a few more, including our long-standing supporters as Board Observers Mike Coles and Jim Ellis and Alliance Chair David Krieg. A strategic planning session was undertaken early in the year with the new Board, Board Observers, and our Patron, to determine a path forward for WAITTA, and as a result a number of changes were made to ensure sustainability for the year ahead. Whilst Western Australia has been fairly sheltered from the COVID-19 pandemic compared to other states, WAITTA has still had to navigate a new world to ensure events could be delivered to an exceptional standard. This meant taking a risk-based approach to everything we did with a focus on continuity with the ever threat of lockdowns upon us. The program Chairs and their supporting committees navigated this very well and delivered beyond expectations both ‘in person’ and ‘virtual’ events, to ensure our entrants and sponsors gained the most value from their commitment. In addition, our Treasurer and Secretary have continued to support our Board and programs through our back office functions which has only served to strengthen our governance as a not-for-profit. Thank you to all of our volunteer Board Directors for your commitment and loyalty throughout the last 12 months. Leading through change is challenging at the best of times but we have proven we can achieve great things when we come together as a collective force with a common purpose. 4 | WAITTA Annual Report 2021

The year ahead will bring many opportunities for WA ICT Innovation Awards programs, including up and coming events for the Game Changer Awards on 6th November 2021 and putt4dough on 23rd November 2021, and we look forward to working with industry, our sponsors, our volunteers, and our supporters to showcase Western Australian talent to the national and global stage. We also look forward to our next Board meeting when the Board will vote in new Office Bearers for the next two years term. On behalf of the WAITTA Board thank you for to everyone who continues support our purpose, we cannot do this without you! Board Performance 2020/21 • Number of Board meetings: 11 virtual Board meetings were held monthly and 1 face to face for strategic planning. • Hours contributed: over 2,000 hours were volunteered by the Board. • Actions completed; over 70 actions were completed by the Board members. • Board turnover: this year we said goodbye to three Board members.

Mike Coles and Jim Ellis OAM The role of the Observers on the Board is to provide advice and counsel using their experience and continuity for the Board to consider. Observers have no voting rights on the Board, but are there entirely to provide perspective and background on the way the Board operates, and how WAITTA has operated over its existence, as Jim Ellis and Mike Coles, the Observers, have both been involved with WAITTA since its very start in 1991. Like 2020, this last year of 2021 has had numerous challenges, but it is fair to say that WAITTA has come through these with grace and success thanks in no small part to the energy of the Board Members. The Board focussed on expanding the scope and role of Treasurer, and Colin Janssen has dedicated considerable time and effort implementing new processes and systems. With Andrea as Chair, strategy and governance have been consistent agenda items and new Board members have been recruited to bring new skills and succession options. There were a number of changes that occurred over the year, not the least of which was the stepping down of the INCITE Awards Chair Sue Findlay, after many highly successful years in that role. We were fortunate that Niamh Toohey joined the Board to take over this demanding position. Niamh and her team of energetic and able volunteers delivered a superlative, new format 2021 INCITE Awards Gala Event night in July. As well as the INCITE Awards, WAITTA also held the successful Game Changers Awards, recognising ICT and STEM excellence in schools and school- age students, as well as the first WAITTA Putt4Dough day which provided significant financial support for the Perth Children’s Hospital from the ICT community. Through all the challenging year of 2021, the WAITTA Board has maintained high governance, reporting and financial standards. As Observers to the Board, we hope that we were able to assist in some small way to the success of the Board’s operations. 6 | WAITTA Annual Report 2021

The event also highlighted those who advocate the value that the awards bring to the state of WA, and the sponsors who believe in the brains trust of Western Australian youth. With the introduction of the online environment, and despite the challenging year with COVID, the following statistics highlights attests to the success of the Game Changer Awards 2020: • 52 team nominations were received (58 team nominations in 2019), which was higher than expected due to the impact of COVID • 4 individual nominations were received, submitted by a parent/guardian (2 individual nominations in 2019) • Approximately 192 students were engaged in the judging process for 48 team judging sessions • 3 schools from regional areas (Karratha, Esperance and Albany) participated in the judging process (no regional schools were involved in 2019) WAITTA Annual Report 2021 | 7

The 30th INCITE Awards Gala Cocktail Event was held at The Westin on 23 July 2021; this was a milestone celebration for WA technology innovation. The State’s longest running ICT Awards program – presented WA tech organisations, entrepreneurs, students and industry leaders with winning titles for their medical, AI, robotics and mining technology innovations. The 2021 theme included ‘WA Technology, Diversifying our Economy and Connecting our Community’. More than 450 of WA tech innovators, supporter, partners and industry colleagues joined forces to celebrate the award winners and network with each other. COVID-19 proved to be challenging in every way, meaning we had to quickly innovate and leverage the collective strengths and support of the WATech sector, resulting in an awards program that exceeded everyone’s expectations with more entrants, finalists, and sponsors rowing in behind us and demonstrating that WA is one of the best places in the world to collaborate and innovate.
