Australian Owner Manager delivers practical, effective education and business acceleration options to the owners of mid-sized Australian businesses ($3m-$100m).
The organisation and the various programs grew out of work undertaken within the University of Queensland Business School and the icehouse - Australasia's leading business accelerator. The flagship Australian Owner Manager Program has been running in Australia for five years, and was adapted from a similar program started at the icehouse in New Zealand in 2001.
Building on this solid foundation, the portfolio of business courses includes the Owner Manager Leadership Program (OML), Australia's first entirely practical leadership course created specifically for managers in privately held mid-sized companies and the Owner Manager Exchange (OMX) a next level program designed exclusively for graduates of the Owner Manager Program. The invitation only mid-market business accelerator runs in the background for companies looking for exponential growth or exit.
Australian Owner Manager grew out of work undertaken with our Foundation Partners: the University of Queensland Business School and The Icehouse - Australasia's leading business accelerator.
