Australian Owner Manager Programs

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.

The Australian owner/manager business program approach and content is designed specifically for the relevant target audience. The objective is not to fill the room and keep the seats warm. Instead, it is to increase capability, build deep and like-minded connections, and deliver enduring value to private businesses.

The facilitators and presenters are all genuine experts in their area of knowledge and expertise, along with an engaging approach to facilitation. All have relevant business experience and deliver practical tools and techniques that are directly applicable to private businesses.     

Each one of the Australian owner manager business program’s 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.   

Finally the programs are holistic, they are not only about business, they are also about you! All programs cover topics around stress, resilience, personal relationships and business and life balance. 

Owner Manager Program (OMP)

The flagship Owner Manager Program is designed for and exclusive to the owners of businesses with an annual revenue between $3m and $100m. It’s a holistic program that forces owners to step back and be challenged on every facet of their business while reflecting on their own personal performance and well-being. 

OM Leadership Program (OML)

The OM Leadership Program (OML) is the only leadership program in Australia designed specifically for senior managers in private businesses. OML is a practical, hands on program focused on the application of leadership and management expertise in private businesses. With that in mind, it covers a broad range of topics relevant to private business managers. 

Small Business Owner Program (SBO)

The program follows a similar model as OMP, but tailored to smaller sized businesses. It is designed for and specific to owners of businesses with an annual revenue between $750k and $3m and at least five staff.
