Your Trainer


Waseem Hussain (the little boy in the middle, with his mother, father and brothers) is of Indian origin. When his family immigrated to Switzerland in 1967 he was a one year old child on his mother's arms.

The family landed at Zurich airport to a cold Swiss winter. All they had known until then was between 30 - 40 degrees Celsius, and sunshine all the time. The aircraft's door swung open and everything was white: the sky, the snow, the people.

When he later played football with friends at the lake of Zurich they would ask him: Waseem, why does your mom wear a sari? Why doesn't she prepare Zürigschnätzlets or Fondue but curries instead? Why don't you people celebrate Christmas or Easter?

Waseem scratched his head every time he heard these really interesting questions. Ever since, he has been making sense of people's inquiries about intercultural communication or India. Like this, he made his life story his business model.

As a corporate trainer, he has engaged with more than 14,000 executives, managers, engineers, scientific researchers and administrative staff across Europe, in the USA and in India.

Waseem's keynote speeches are booked for international business conferences, senior management meetings and business events.

Waseem delivers his keynotes around the world.

He is a faculty at the International Executive MBA at Zurich University of Applied Sciences and visiting faculty at the Supply Chain Management Executive MBA at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology ETH.

Waseem completed studies in international management, management consulting, project management, and intercultural communication.

He speaks English, German, Urdu and Hindi.
