Partner with Owner Manager
and together we will help your clients
and members build better businesses.

Australian Owner Manager is the provider of the highly successful Owner Manager Program, along with a range of complimentary programs and masterclasses aimed at accelerating the growth of small ($1m – $3m) and mid-sized ($3m – $100m) privately owned businesses. 

We believe that by boosting the owner with the right tools, application and connections, they can build the business and life they want. Our flagship program creates forward momentum resulting in healthier, more sustainable, and ultimately, much stronger businesses and owners.

We want to partner with organisations that believe this too.

Who are we?

Growing out of work completed at the University of Queensland Business School and New Zealand’s leading business accelerator, The Icehouse, the Owner Manager Program (OMP) has been completed by more than a thousand business owners in the last two decades.

Using that as a framework, Rob Douglas established the Australian Owner Manager Program in 2012.

Unlike many business courses available, which are largely theoretical, the OMP is a practical, focused, and results-driven program. It’s about helping the owner and their business prosper.

Taught by a range of leading business minds, this course is authentic, challenging and directly applicable. Alumni have reported that not only has the course had a direct impact on the success of their business but that they thoroughly enjoy and benefit personally from the program.

The OMP Impact...

Over 300 Australian business owners have taken the course in the past 10 years. Research showed their businesses have experienced tremendous growth year-on-year, while they have also found time to focus on what’s most important to them as individuals.

Below is a snapshot of the positive impact experienced by owners and their businesses over 10 years of the Owner Manager Program.

"The OMP created a lot of success for me. We were able to create something really huge. We’re patented in most developed countries in the world, and that’s probably the biggest achievement. I still pinch myself.”

Probably more important than the business impacts mentioned above are the personal benefits to the owners themselves – their personal well-being, the clarity, and the motivation to change.
