This training was super interesting and enthralling!
I consider Waseem to be a highly skilled corporate trainer. He has been delivering his training session to our senior management as well as our IT project managers, line managers and engineers since 2006. Waseem always has a strong presence in front of his audience, which just adds to the value that participants take away from his training sessions. We organize a satisfaction survey for every training. Waseem's trainings always receive the best score among all at Credit Suisse.
Waseem's style of delivery is interactive and engaging. Participants' feedback clearly shows that they felt at ease when attending his sessions on change management and that they took away a lot for their every day work.
Waseem provided a very inspiring one-day training on working in an intercultural business. He developed a fascinating picture of India's society and mindset. After such a day, you feel that taking the extra mile to understand colleagues with a different culture is indeed worth the journey. I recommend him without reserve!
Excellent intercultural training! It was worth to join every single minute.
Simply a great intercultural workshop.
Thank you for your most informative and enjoyable speech about doing business in India.
I found the intercultural training very informative and easily applied to my daily work.
I took home 7 really actionable items from this intercultural training. They help me to effectively work with colleagues in India.
This was an extremely useful intercultural communication training.
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.
Waseem completed studies in international management, management consulting, project management, and intercultural communication.
He speaks English, German, Urdu and Hindi.
