This year we bring together two thought leadership keynotes and a further two panel sessions; plus plenty of networking opportunities for members, guests and sponsors.<br><br><b>Conference Opening<br>Greg Italiano, Government CIO</b><br><br><b>Keynote Presentation<br>Beyond Digital: Practical Innovation<br>presented by Miriam Stanborough<br>Group Manager - Productivity &amp; Innovation at Monadelphous</b><br><br><span style="font-size: 11.0pt;"><span>It is a common observation that the resources industry is a latecomer to digital transformation opportunities, although this is disputed by many in the industry and there are no shortage of organisations seeking to engage their resources customers in digital initiatives.  ‘Digital transformation’ is often confused with ‘innovation’ where they are in fact two distinct concepts.  Miriam Stanborough will draw from her experience working in Innovation in both mining and contracting companies to discuss the importance of establishing an innovation framework that is underpinned by clear definitions of what these key terms mean for each particular organisation, why a deep understanding of each company’s unique culture and core business activities is critical to developing an appropriate approach to innovation, and the extent to which digital transformation plays a part in this.  </span></span> <br><br><b>Panel: Disruptive Tech Transforming Business Models &amp; Jobs of the Future </b>   <br>                     <br>Digital disruption is occurring everywhere which has manifested itself into the Fourth Industrial Revolution.   It’s digital revolution where technological breakthroughs are challenging existing business models almost overnight.  In this session hear from leading IT companies on how disruptive technology has and will impact on business and work and the new jobs roles that will emerge. <br><br>Panellists include <b>Paul Ostergaard, Founder &amp; CEO at Norwood Systems;</b> <b>Claude De Lucia, Director at Diversus, </b><b>Julie Hobbs, Chief Executive Officer at FutureNow Creative and Leisure Industries Training Council </b>and<b> </b><b>Anle Pretorius, Practice Manager Enterprise Solutions WA at Empired.</b><br><br><b>Panel: Building Capability &amp; Skills to Succeed in a Connected World    </b><br>   <br>Given the complexities and continuous disruption in the Australian and global economy, creating a skill supply chain to build ICT capabilities has emerged one of the top challenges faced by organisations of all sizes. In this session several leading organisations will share their insights and experiences on how they are overcoming the “people” challenge to ensure staff have the required capabilities and skills in a connected world. <br><br>Panellists include <b>Shaun Cameron, Global Organisation Development and Learning Manager at Empired, </b><b>Andy Wood, Executive Director, Corporate Services at the WA Department of Finance </b>and<b> Lea Cairns, T&amp;T Graduate Program Manager, Technology &amp; Transformation.</b><br><br><b>Locknote Presentation<br>Harnessing Data for WA to be Competitive, presented by Dr Ian Oppermann <br>NSW Chief Data Scientist and CEO of NSW Data Analytics Centre</b><br><br>Our world is relentlessly digitising, hyper-connected and ever more personalised. It is also increasingly supported by analytics and AI. The ability to effectively harness data and analytics is essential for us to maintain our place in the world, addresses challenges of an ageing population, weak productivity growth as well as some of the greatest challenges we will yet face in health, our natural environment and the future of work. Embracing data driven technologies for smart cities, smart factories, smart homes and smart government all require us to understand, frame and then address the challenges of data sharing which preserves privacy. This presentation will highlight opportunities and challenges for WA and Australia more broadly. <br><br><b>PROUDLY SPONSORED BY</b><br><br><img alt="ACS WA State Conference Sponsors" src="https://id.acs.org.au/servlet/rtaImage?eid=70190000001uTmQ&amp;feoid=00N9000000EVCh7&amp;refid=0EM0o000001vOwl" style="height: 651px; width: 500px;"></img>
