The Growth Owner Program was a great experience. My only regret was not engaging and signing up sooner. A wonderful community to be involved with!
Lynden Vikingur, Vikal International
The finance workshop gave me the verification that I need to establish an overdraft, set up regular reports and take a closer review of my financials.
Graeme Franklin, Safety Solutions WA
Completing The Growth Owner Program has allowed me to restructure and re-organise an existing company, into a sustainable and enjoyable place to work. With our second manager currently enrolled in the program, our vison and values are aligning as a team effort.
Ben Millar, LINKS Surveying Western Australia
The Growth Owner Program has encouraged me to look at the culture of the business and to also take to other business owners. The three-day introduction workshops worked well together. It built group cohesiveness and was a great way to get into the program. It’s a great mix between individual work, sharing as a group and learning from others.. thanks for the challenge.

Frequently asked questions
+ I am too busy running my business. Why is Business Foundations' Growth Program worth my time and investment?
As the owner of a small business, every minute of every day counts and taking time out of your business is very difficult – we get that.
Attending the Growth Program is investing time in your business and in yourself. It gives you the chance to take time out to reflect on your business, learn the skills needed to grow strategically, and discover how to make the changes needed operationally. This leads to business improvements, increases in profitability and an improvement in the overall health of your business and you as the business owner.
You will spend time away from your business actively growing your business and learning new skills and developing action plans to implement.
+ Will confidential information about my business stay within the Program?
This is a natural concern for business owners and we ask all participants to respect privacy and uphold confidentiality.
We tailor our cohorts, you will not be in the same group as a direct competitor. This enables you to feel comfortable to be able to reveal information about the challenges you face as a business.
Business peers can problem-solve and come up with action plans to turn your business challenges into scale-up solutions.
+ Will I receive hands-on help?
Each participant will be matched with a business mentor and receive one-to-one mentoring to help embed learning and outcomes into your business.
We find the combination of in-class learning, peer-to-peer support and mentoring to be the most powerful combination for business owners to make the changes and implement growth.
+ Is the program academic?
The program is built on more than 25 years of knowledge of working with small business owners. The facilitators have real-world experience as small business owners. The program is developed based on what business owners tell us are your pain points – the things that keep you up at night.
There are no exams or complex readings, but the program is rigorous. We help you think through the challenges and issues facing your business in a methodical, detailed way. Most importantly, you get immediate, actionable outcomes rather than academic theories. The program is practical, engaging and hands-on.
+ Are there any pre-requisites to joining the program?
You are eligible as long as you are a small business owner and have an openness and willingness to learn and participate.
+ Does this program help me to network?
One of the important benefits of the program is being plugged into a network of about 20 like-minded small business people ready to exchange their ideas and experiences.
If you have a problem, there are bound to be other people in the room who have faced the same challenges. Once you have completed the program you will be connected into a powerful alumni of Perth's leading business owners to allow you to continue building your network.
