2020 Dates – Australian Owner Manager Program

The dates for the Owner Manager Program in 2020 have been released. With the support of NAB, OMP13 will kick off in Sydney in late January, Melbourne in mid-February, and then Brisbane in early March.

The Programs are built on a successful model that has been running for seven years in Australia and 18 years in New Zealand. Each program is uniquely developed to meet the needs of the participants and businesses involved and ensure the content evolves and exceeds best-practice.

NAB is also continuing to provide part scholarships for their clients to complete the program. There is a base scholarship level. There are also some additional internal scholarship for female business owners.

Over the years the Owner Manager Program has been described by participants as transformative. “There is a special kind of alchemy that occurs when you bring together a group of like-minded business owners,” said Australian Owner Manager Executive Director Rob Douglas. “Business Owners are often isolated and under-resourced. There is often a palpable sense of energy in the room when participants realise other owners are facing similar opportunities and challenges as they are.” 

“We connect participants with presenters who have real experience in creating extraordinary businesses. Participants find their tribe, reconnect with their passion and develop a clear blueprint of what to do next,” said Rob.

Participants of the Owner Manager Program consistently report improved profitability, business satisfaction and work-life balance. “The Owner Manager Program gave me the tools I needed to improve my business,” said John Keleher, co-owner of Australian Lawn Concepts. “It stepped us through a journey that was at a pace I could implement my learning while still conducting my business.”

“The Owner Manager Program gave us access to speak to successful business owners and experts who are out of our day to day reach. People I would never have been able to talk to without this program,” said Lou Mostert of ABP Group. “The facilitators have been first class. They have a genuine interest and passion for making sure your business is on the right track.”

Australian Owner Manager is building a unique network and education opportunities for mid-size business owners. “We are privileged to be able to work with extraordinary businesses and owners and help them develop their next steps, whether that be growth, succession or exit,” said Rob.
