Australian Institute of Architects

The Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) is the peak body for the architecture profession in Australia. 

Driven by a desire to help their members build strong, robust practices that make a positive impact on Australia’s built environment, the AIA have formed a strategic alliance with Australian Owner Manager as a Member Rewards Partner for the benefit of the Australian Architecture Industry.

Together we aim to help more AIA members who own and operate their own businesses to get the tools, applications and connections to build a business and life that thrives.

Clarity and direction

“This course has given me clarity, it’s given me answers to all my questions around how to get to where we need to go”…

Glen Grohn from JAC Civil says the quality and commitment of the OMP facilitators and presenters is second to none.

It’s time to build the business and life YOU want.

Now is the perfect time for business owners to step back, reflect, adapt, and build a better business in a changing world. The Owner Manager Program is designed to help you do just that.

The program will guide you to become the owner you want to be and continue to develop the business that you own. The clarity, confidence, and connections will change you and your business.

“Decades of experience has shown us that if we can challenge an owner to reflect, change, and improve, we arm them with greater clarity, confidence, skills, and connections to move their business forward. We take great care to connect a diverse group of business owners from a range of different industries that are looking to improve themselves and their business.”

In fact, all our programs are designed to assist owner managers to thrive, whether that be with OMP, or sending your leaders on OML, or attending  Finance for Owners and Managers so that you can build greater value within your business. 

Feel free to schedule a call with me to discuss which program would suit you and your situation best.

It's worth every penny...

“It is worth every penny when you’re walking out of it. The return on investment you make here will just be made so quickly when you walk back into your own business.”

Kendall Tait from Tait Auto Group shares her experience with the Owner Manager Program. She says this course was the best decision she made for the business and for herself moving forward. 

“Don’t hesitate. You’ll never look back.”
