Annual OT Week Breakfast

The annual OT Week Breakfast is the flagship event of the WA Occupational Therapy Association calendar. It is traditionally held annually on the Friday of OT Week, and is an opportunity for OTs to come together and celebrate the wonderful Occupational Therapy profession as a group. It is a great way to catch up with colleagues from university days or previous workplaces and a great place to meet new friends!

Each year, WAOTA invites a guest speaker to attend the Breakfast, with the aim of offering a personal perspective on Occupational Therapy and reigniting the passion for OT that inspires us to do what we do! The Breakfast also provides the opportunity for WAOTA to present Awards to recognise excellence among the members of WAOTA. Award winners are nominated by members of WAOTA, and all award winners remain unaware until their names are announced at the Breakfast!
