OMP Owner Manager Program

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.

THE COURSE

The core of the program includes five 3-day residential workshops held over a five month period. During the course expect to be completely immersed with a diverse range of topics and more than 30 business experts that will test and push the boundaries of your business and challenge you in ways that will make you see things differently.

Two highly skilled facilitators challenge every aspect of your business, maintaining focus on the core issues — teasing out the solutions with the assistance of the other members of your group. The course isn't just about business — it's also about you and getting the work-life balance right. And because the other business owners in your course are individually selected — you develop a network of meaningful, long-lasting contacts.

“Out of the classroom” time should not be underestimated, with plenty of time for social connection with the members of your group.  The feedback we have from our alumni is that it is incredibly enriching to connect with like-minded people - it's a fertile environment where ideas and bonds form beyond the practical course sessions.
