Owner Manager Program

An exclusive business program for owners of mid-sized private companies, $3m-$100m​.

The Australian Owner Manager Program is a practical, compressed, residential development program designed exclusively for business owners. It follows a proven philosophy and process that has been tested and refined for more than a decade. 

The core of the program includes five x 3-day monthly residential workshops where business owners are challenged by their peers, a range of facilitators, subject experts, coaches and mentors across broad business topics.

COVID has affected each and every business across Australia, and the world. Whether it is growth, transition, supply chain, or staff, the market and business has changed and 2022 is the perfect time to step back and rethink the way you approach your business and reinvigorate yourself.
