The Organic Business Leadership Academy was developed by Timeli and The Organic Academy. We craft organic business leadership courses for companies that work in the international organic market and want to expand their knowledge of organic.

In addition to our Basic and Advanced Leadership Courses, the OBLA offers a knowledge platform and a network environment for everyone with a passion for organic business and sustainability. Our courses are led by international organic experts and guest lecturers in sustainability.

Why do we offer this OBLC Course?

Organic businesses face a challenging period. Explosive market growth, tightening regulation and control, growing interest from multi-nationals and corporations, societal demand and critical citizens, and the ongoing effects of the climate crisis offer us challenges as well as opportunities. To deal with these organic businesses must stay in the lead.

This course is designed for those who are new to organic and those already working in organic business who want to expand their knowledge, expertise, and network.

What is our Goal?
