Resource Industry Network

Established in Mackay, Queensland, the Resource Industry Network is a peak industry association representing companies actively engaged in and allied to the resource sector. Their purpose is to build a prosperous and resilient resources community by leveraging the collective capabilities of the resources sector supply chain. RIN connect, develop, and promote their members to the commercial decision-makers, peak bodies and government representatives in the resource sector.

Together we aim to help more Resource Industry Network members who own and operate their own businesses to get the tools, applications and connections to build the business and life they want.

"The OMP created a lot of success for me.
We were able to create something really huge. We’re patented in most developed countries in the world,
and that’s probably the biggest achievement. I still pinch myself.”

A life-changing experience...

Adrian Connors, owns and operates several hospitality venues under the umbrella of NE Food in Mackay, QLD.

Before taking part in the Owner Manager Program (OMP), Adrian was at a cross roads with his business. Since taking the course, Adrian has gone from strength to strength. 

Take a moment to listen how the OMP changed his life…

“Never in my life have I described something as life changing, but this was life-changing for me.”.

It’s time to build the business and life YOU want.

Now is the perfect time for business owners to step back, reflect, adapt, and build a better business in a changing world. The Owner Manager Program is designed to help you do just that.

The program will guide you to become the owner you want to be and continue to develop the business that you own. The clarity, confidence, and connections will change you and your business.

“Decades of experience has shown us that if we can challenge an owner to reflect, change, and improve, we arm them with greater clarity, confidence, skills, and connections to move their business forward. We take great care to connect a diverse group of business owners from a range of different industries that are looking to improve themselves and their business.”

In fact, all our programs are designed to assist owner managers to thrive, whether that be with OMP, or sending your leaders on OML, or attending  Finance for Owners and Managers so that you can build greater value within your business. 

Feel free to schedule a call with me to discuss which program would suit you and your situation best.

It's very helpful on a number of levels

Clinton Smith is the owner manager of CJ Smith Homes and sister company, CJ Smith Services (an earth moving company) based in Mackay, QLD.

He chose to do the OMP after a number of his mates, who have also completed the program, recommended it to him.

Clinton says the course has rounded him out personally, as well as giving him the tools to “easily” take his business to the next level. 

Take a moment to listen to Clinton’s feedback since completing the OMP.
