Ian Hutchinson's Biography

Ian founded Life by Design in 1997, growing to become one of Australia’s most innovative human potential specialists.


Ian has internationally recognised expertise (working in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East) and over 15 years of local experience working with the majority of Australia’s top 10 companies, organisations such as Westpac, McDonalds, Coke, PWC, Ernst & Young, 3 Mobile, MLC, ING, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, NAB, ANZ, AMP, Macquarie Bank, Perpetual Investments, Mallesons, CBA, BT as well as many Best Employers such as Randstad, SAP and Flight Centre just to name a few.


Ian’s Employee-Driven Productivity (EDP) process is the self-responsibility approach to employee engagement, which is the missing link to simply and easily unlocking peoples’ motivation and engagement potential in work and life.
