about me

Who am I?

Ian Johnstone 'Johnno'

Founder/ Trainer of Train The Workplace

My name is Ian Johnstone, I have been working in the Hospitality & Customer Services industries for over 20 years in Australia, United Kingdom and United Arab Emirates. Over this time I have worked as a Workplace Trainer, Instructional Designer and Training Consultant in Hospitality, Leisure Management, Heavy Vehicle  Transport, Health Services and IT Management.

On this journey I have experienced the good, the bad and the ugly of workplace training

It is based on these experiences that I have developed a range of training programs, tools and resources that I use when I work with my clients.

And I want to be able to share them with you.

When I am not working here I am running my small training consultancy called Profitable Employee.

learning that you can use 

The most effective way to learn is through experience.  We provide simple and easy to follow learning that is practical and can be applied in the workplace, or in everyday life. 

If you can't apply what you have learned than it is just information.
