North Carolina Executive Roundtable (NCER) is a diverse, professional community of senior-level executives who are committed to build relationships and assist one another to achieve greater success in their business, professional, and personal pursuits. NCER embraces a philosophy of continual enhancement and evolution so leaders inspire Excellence and do Amazing Things!
Join us for our May Virtual Luncheon, featuring Oie Osterkamp, entrepreneur, author, philanthropist and Executive Director of the Ronald McDonald House in Durham.
From Success to Significance
Travel with Oie as he chronicles his journey from growing up in Nash County to building and leading an Inc. 500 company to investing his time in two non-profits, with a few altercations with quicksand and mine fields along the way!
His journey will inspire you and demonstrate not only how to succeed with a non-profit that changes lives, and how to use business acumen to achieve that, but also what it means to combine career with an impactful life.
In February 2012 Oie gave up his successful consulting practice to become the Executive Director of the Ronald McDonald House of Durham. When he walked into the Ronald McDonald House for the first time and saw all the ceiling tiles that the children had decorated through the years, his heart sang and he knew that he had found what he was designed and built to do with his life. He calls it part of his “transition of focus from success to significance”.
Oie has a master’s degree in business but likes to say he “has his PhD in life” (you can read his three books to get an idea of what he means by that).
Under Oie’s “Top 5” vision of continuous improvement, the programs under his leadership have grown and include the Ronald McDonald Houses in Durham and at WakeMed Children’s Hospital in Raleigh, along with Ronald McDonald Family Rooms at Duke Children’s and WakeMed Children’s hospitals. His organization is one of the most respected and emulated throughout Ronald McDonald House Charities, which has chapters all over the world.
Oie has been honored to teach leadership principles to participants from 42 countries throughout his career, with one of his highest honors being asked to be an instructor for the Duke University Executive Certificate in Nonprofit Leadership program, where he has taught for the past five years.
Even with all this, Oie’s greatest and most satisfying accomplishment is when he can sit down to dinner with his wife and 13-year-old son at least 5 nights a week.
