Owner Manager Programs & Short Courses

All Australian Owner Manager Business Programs are built on a philosophy around You, Your Business, and Your Role in the Business. Everything covered in these areas is relevant, practical, engaging, and focused on application.

A few factors set Owner Manager courses and programs apart:

  1. They’re designed specifically for the relevant target audience – owners and managers in private businesses. The objective is not to fill the room and keep the seats warm. 

  2. The programs increase capability, build deep and like-minded connections, and deliver enduring value to private businesses.

  3. The facilitators and presenters are all genuine experts in their area of knowledge and expertise, along with an engaging approach to facilitation and relevant business experience.
  4. Each program includes practical tools and techniques that are directly applicable to private businesses.
  5. The content and structure is designed around application. Participants leave each session ready to apply the material and report back on ongoing implementation and execution. As a result, real change is delivered.
  6. Many programs are holistic, they are not only about business, they are also about you! Many of the longer programs cover topics around stress, resilience, personal relationships and business and life balance.
