OMX 2022

Owner Manager Exchange (OMX) 2022 is the next level business course designed exclusively for alumni of the Owner Manager Program.

Owner Manager Program alumni have confidence in the program structure and it’s success. It allows you to objectively evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your business. Additionally, it equips you with the tools and connections you need to quickly implement positive change and to move your business forward.

The format, content and structure of OMX is continually updated based on participant feedback. OMX builds on the foundation created by the Owner Manager Program. It allows you to maintain momentum year on year by creating new opportunities for you to step outside of your business. Lastly, it encourages you to be challenged by experts and peers and reflect on where your business is heading.

OMX is only open to OMP alumni (and their partners) and creates the perfect platform for you to make more connections with other mid-sized business owners.

OMX is a 3-day (1-3 June 2022) intensive program.

OMX2022 will focus on: 

  • Pricing models and strategies
  • Customer and Supplier Negotiations
  • People and Performance
  • Personal Productivity & Effectiveness
  • Business Technology and Business Roadblocks
  • Personal Resilience, managing stress and engaging emotions. 

Who is it for?

The program is designed for alumni of the Australian Owner Manager Program who want to reflect on their journey and be challenged in their thinking about themselves and their business. OMX will continue to fuel the fire that started with the Owner Manager Program.

What is it?

Many OMP alumni have asked for a another course to reflect on how they’re going and challenge them on their growth journey.

The OMX content is designed and adapted to ensure it is reflective of market challenges and aligned with the needs of the participating Owner Manager Program graduates. OMX also provides a forum for alumni to build new networks in a format that is familiar and invigorating. The ideas and thinking will be fresh and relevant, and the chemistry of the participants and mentors for each program is unique.

Built on the revised format developed in 2020, in OMX 2022 you’ll have the opportunity to spend quality time with experienced business owners across three days, participate in group discussions following presentations of best practice case studies, reflect on the state of you and your business and plan for your future with input from industry experts. The program allows for plenty of room to apply these learnings to your business.

How does it work?

The three-day residential program follows an adapted version of the OMP blocks. Each session includes presentations and discussions to explore the learning and application of the content to each business. The format allows owners to:

  • Discuss the state of your business, revisiting where you were at the end of the Owner Manager Program, where you are now, and what the future holds
  • Be challenged by your peers, facilitators, presenters and guest speakers on an individual basis
  • Get more in-depth advice, feedback and ideas related to specific areas of your business
  • Plan for the future in each session with help and input from business advisors
  • Share reflections, thoughts and advice with other business owners and mentors
  • Be challenged personally on your individual style, performance, and resilience
