Indian vs International Trainers

by | Nov 1, 2020 | Public Speaking | 22 comments


I learned this perspective from one trainer he’s from New Zealand and I completely agree with his perspective and I would love to know whether you agree or disagree with this.

I met him in one international training conference in Dubai, and we’re enjoying food during that lunch. And suddenly in the middle of the discussion, he said Praveen “You know what? The quality of trainers from countries like New Zealand, Australia is very high, very good quality compared to quality of trainers in India”.

And I said, okay, why are you saying this? Why you think like this?

And he shared his perspective.

He said, Praveen understand Australia, New Zealand or countries like this. It’s a very small country. We are very few people. And especially in the light of the fact, now people are using social media to reach. Now, if there are very few people in that country, very obviously we can reach faster and we get saturated faster.

What Is The Product – Knowledge, Wisdom & Content

Now, New Zealand, if I start doing Facebook campaign and YouTube campaign and start investing on social media is matter of few days and few months, I can reach maximum number of people because the countries are very small.

Because we get saturate very fast because people get exposure to our content, our knowledge, because for any trainer, what is the product knowledge, wisdom, content. Because it gets saturate very fast it’s our responsibility to keep on adding, make it more, better and better because that’s the requirement. That’s a demand. Otherwise, we cannot survive.

But on other hand, if you see in India, it’s a very big country and the 1.3 billion people now you will take years to achieve that saturation, that you have huge number of people.

Now there’s a flip side to it, he said Praveen. And I said, what is the flip side?

Now because the huge number of people, the demand is very high, every trainer you will find when they market themselves, will get students. They will get students because numbers are huge there. And because they get students frequently, most of the time they see people coming to their live webinars or people attending their workshops, most of the time, if they get students, this start feeling like this, that, Hey, I’m good. That’s the reason I’m getting students. That’s the reason I’m getting students. I’m doing this for the last so many years. I’m getting students because I’m very good. I’m a good trainer.

But in that there, of course there’s some good trainers, but we have to consider this factor also, especially if you’re training in India, that maybe you are getting because you are in India, because numbers are very huge.

And there are some trainers if you’ll strongly believe in this, that I’m very good. I’m too good, I’m the best and because of that, people are coming, if you start developing that belief, then we stop learning. We stop learning because we think we are going to neglect them we are good. We stop learning.

And he said, because there are few trainers in India because of this kind of illusion, they stop learning and that’s the reason, the quality of few trainers in India is not good compared to those trainers who are in smaller countries.

And I said, yes, that’s a good perspective. I agree with this perspective,

What is your view? What is your perspective? What do you feel?

Share your perspective.

This is Praveen Wadalkar signing out. Until we meet again.

        Since there are more trainers in India, there is more competition. Hence this pushes the trainers to develop themselves and be on track and show a difference. In that way India also has good trainers

    Hi Praveen,

    Don’t know much about cricket but the rule applied looks to be good. On the other hand we have abundance of RAW TALENT & the responsibility lies on our shoulder to make them a finish product..

    This will be a great opportunity to train them on live webinars..

    Dear Praveenji,

    I agree with it and the moment we become complacent we are stopping our growth and being a trainer or a best trainer if you need to ahead of the world in learning new things then only you have something to give back to society.

    But there is another perspective, Many new trainers are emerging but the main reason for coming to this profession is to earn money as a main goal not to serve or share what they have learned. And they do learn new things from other trainers and share it with the audience. But they are not living by what they are saying and till you don’t have lived what you are saying authenticity is not coming and audience is now smart they can capture this very fast.

    Due to this reason trainners are not able to make an impact and this has no geomatrical limitation. who ever is living what they are saying. Audiance is available for such trainners/preachers.

    Dear Praveenji,
    I must say you are living what you are sharing and that only inspires others.
    Thank you for whatever you are doing for us. keep doing. This world needs a person like you many more.

    It’s just a different perspective, as in today’s digital world the physical boundaries have not stopped good or best things in whatever form, from being noticed and taking the center stage and the little less than the best ones getting filtered out.
    So is the case with trainers. I am sure there will be a mix of best of breeds and the little less than the best ones in every country, so just because our country has high populace doesn’t guarantee an Indian trainer will have flow of students. Internet is penetrating in corners of our country and people who are the audience to such trainers are well informed and do their bit of research before enrolling for a course, especially when we as Indian are looking for value for money in everything.
    Off course the fact is true -learning should never stop, everything comes with a expiry date or at least becomes obsolete with time.
    All will depend on the content and the value and benefit it brings to the audience. As a student it doesn’t matter if the trainer is Indian or International as long as the subject or topic belongs to his or her area of interest and the trainer is delivering it in a way that he/she can relate to it.

    Hi Praveen,

    It depends person to person.We cannot generalize to all Indians on the same pedestal as also we cannot generalize all persons in Australia and New zealand.

    Also Australia is not a small country.It is a continent country.

    I am not at all agree with the perspective. Why we assume that for populous country like India, there is no competition in this profession. If population is huge, certainly trainers number will also be huge and so is the competition. A vital element of competition and struggle for survival would be there in both the countries, irrespective of its population. On the other hand, a trainer from populous country like India will have exposure to the large number of mindsets, that possibly can provide him a better chance to be a better trainer than others. Quality of trainers would depend more on the perspective of a trainer and his goals.

    Dear Praveen Sir,

    Thanks for the space created to share readers’ perspectives. Apart from the reasons mentioned in your article there could be number of other reasons as well.

    1. Profound cultural/traditional values which trainers or mentors carry to impact others’ lives.

    2. For the last twenty years or so there has been a big boom in network marketing /direct selling, and every fourth or fifth person from this field, motivated, aspires to be a trainer.

    3. There is so much of information and wisdom crisscrossing our lives today, beyond classes and countries, there is a big shift in our metaphysical /quantum world that genuine trainers/mentors, who hold humane values and want to reach out to others and give out earnestly will only be accepted and followed.

    Thanks Praveen Sir, for being a fine being and an honest mentor, Be blessed.
