OMX 2022

OMX 2022 is the next level business course designed exclusively for alumni of the Australian Owner Manager Program.

Owner Manager Program alumni know the programs work because they allow you to objectively evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your business and equip you with the tools and connections you need to quickly implement positive change and to move your business forward.

The format, content and structure of OMX is continually updated based on participant feedback. OMX builds on the foundation created by the Owner Manager Program and allows you to maintain momentum year on year by creating new opportunities for you to step outside of your business and be challenged by experts and peers and reflect on where your business is heading.

OMX is only open to OMP alumni (and their partners) and creates the perfect platform for you to make more connections with other mid-sized business owners.

Similar to the Owner Manager Program, take a holistic view of your business, your role and you.

The unique set of tools that are provided in the Owner Manager Exchange program allow you to further analyse and fine tune your business operations achieving tangible results.

The Owner Manager Exchange allows you to continue to expand your network of other business owners. Just like in the Owner Manager Program you will form a bond of understanding and support. It’s the most valuable network of its kind.

The Owner Manager Exchange gives you more opportunities to continue to reflect and focus on your work-life balance. 

OMX 2022 (1-3 June 2022)

OMX is a 3-day (1-3 June 2022) intensive program. Each year new core topics are chosen as focus areas from topics such as Leadership & People, Tech Integration, Product & Service Offering, Market Analysis & Business Models, Business Processes, Governance, Finance & Capital, and Resilience & Well-being.

The exact program for OMX 2022 will be finalised early in 2022.

Who is it for?

The program is designed for alumni of the Australian Owner Manager Program who want to reflect on their journey and be challenged in their thinking about themselves and their business. OMX will continue to fuel the fire that started with the Owner Manager Program.

What is it?

Many OMP alumni have asked for a next level course to reflect on how they're going and challenge them on their growth journey.

The OMX content is designed and adapted to ensure it is reflective of market challenges and aligned with the needs of the participating Owner Manager Program graduates. OMX also provides a forum for alumni to build new networks in a format that is familiar and invigorating. The ideas and thinking will be fresh and relevant, and the chemistry of the participants and mentors for each program is unique.

Built on the revised format developed in 2019, in OMX 2020 you'll have the opportunity to spend quality time with experienced business leaders across three days, participate in panel sessions following presentations of best practice case studies, reflect on the state of your business and plan for your future with input from industry experts. The program allows for plenty of room to apply these learnings to your business.

How does it work?

The three-day residential program follows an adapted version of multiple OMP Panel Sessions. At the beginning of each session there is a general presentation and discussion and then the overall cohort is split into groups of four to five owners to explore application to each business individually. The format allows owners to:

  • Discuss the state of your business, revisiting where you were at the end of the Owner Manager Program, where you are now, and what the future holds
  • Be challenged by your panel leaders, your peers, presenters and guest speakers on an individual basis 
  • Get more in-depth advice, feedback and ideas related to specific areas of your business
  • Set action plans for the future in each session with help and input from business advisors
  • Share reflections, thoughts and advice with other business owners and mentors
  • Be challenged personally on your individual style, performance, and resilience
