New Deloitte collaboration will deliver better education opportunities to mid-size businesses

Australian Owner Manager is pleased to announce that Deloitte has become a Premium Partner adding value to the owners of mid-sized Australian Companies.

Part of the Deloitte offering includes expertise from Deloitte Private, a practice that focuses exclusively on the opportunities and challenges unique to privately owned businesses. Their multi-disciplinary professionals offer private businesses a broad range of services including accounting, auditing, taxation, superannuation, IT services, sourcing government grants and succession planning.

About Australian Owner Manager

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 – one of Australasia's leading business accelerators. The flagship Australian Owner Manager Program has been running in Australia for six years, and was adapted from a similar program started at the icehouse in New Zealand in 2001.
