OMP Owner Manager Program Melbourne

An exclusive business course for owners of mid-sized private companies $3-$100m

The Australian Owner Manager Program is unlike any “course” you'll ever do. It's not an academic program, it’s a business education, coaching, networking and consulting hybrid. The program is completely practical and professionally facilitated with up to 25 like-minded business owners.

Built specifically for super busy business owners with $3m-$100m revenue that always say at the beginning: 'I don’t need to do a course and I don’t have the time to waste anyway — I've got a business to run.' 

More than 800 business owners in Australia and New Zealand have said those exact words. But once they've experienced the power of the Owner Manager Program — how it challenged the way they thought about their business and changed their mindset — they are full of praise for the program.

Australian Owner Manager grew out of work undertaken within the our Foundation Partners: University of Queensland Business School and the icehouse — Australasia's leading business accelerator.
