TOP 15 TRAINERS PRODUCED BY QAISER ABBAS
What can you learn from the success stories of these 15 Trainers who transformed their career within 6 months of entering the training industry?
Training is a serious business. I have been in the training field for some two decades now. I trained thousands of people in over 30 countries, serving 300 plus top organizations in more than 50 industries. I have had the privilege to share stage with top global gurus of the training industry including Dave Ulrich, Marshall Goldsmith, Brian Tracy and Tony Buzan, to name a few.
However, I have been reluctant to offer my Train The Trainer Program to the next generation of trainers. In the last ten years, clients and participants pushed me hard on starting my TTT program. I was reluctant. Although, I did dozens of customized TTT programs for many of my clients building their internal pool of trainers, but certifying trainers for the actual market to serve real clients was a huge responsibility.
At the same time, I have always had this secret mission to produce the next line of speakers and trainers in the country. I did want to leave a legacy behind. Giving everything I have to a group of trainers. So I kept developing and refining my TTT program for more than a decade. Yet, I didn’t consider myself ready to add value in the TTT segment. I made a commitment to myself that I will only offer this program if I believe my Train The Trainer ensures a unique value. My purpose was to create a program that prepares and enables certificate holders to right away go and serve the market.
Producing market-ready trainers was a gigantic task. It required equipping trainers with everything that I knew as a trainer. This required sharing my very own time-tested, powerful tools, frameworks, methodologies and processes that helped me create a unique positioning in the market, earn respect and receive seven figure income in a one day training program.
And this is precisely what I did.
I offered my first ever TTT program only in 2018.
Through a rigorous, patience-testing process; we selected 25 participants out of 1479 applicants. In order to secure their seats, applicant went through a very tough three- stage procedure including assessment, video analysis and final interview.
25 selected participants were exposed to a three day intense learning experience with me. I taught them everything I knew on training. I shared my secret formats, templates, learning methods, client engagement system, program design framework, development need analysis process, meeting templates, note taking formats and content development strategies etc.
For the next 15 weeks, participants were pushed into situations where they had to practically apply and test the tools I taught them. I wanted to ensure application of learning in a real-time environment.
They were supervised to design their own training program using my undisclosed methods. They delivered mock training sessions. They travelled with me to see me live in action delivering training to an actual client.
15 weeks later, only the participants who completed the assignments and passed the previous stages were invited to attend the final stage. I shared additional tools on training. Also I taught them how to set up their own training business. I shared with them my personal templates for ‘go to market’ strategy. They learnt how to build their brand, develop plans to launch themselves in the market, establish their training company, sell training services and secure training contacts at a premium price.
They presented their final training program that was designed under my team’s guidance using my frameworks. After arduous assessment, evaluation and scrutiny; the eligible participants were awarded with the certificates. It’s been more than a year now. Our program has been very well received in the marketplace. Despite being the most expensive TTT Program, we continue to get more requests to get a slot than we can actually accommodate.
We have some 100 Trainers in our network in Lahore, Karachi, Islamabad and 10 other cities.
In this article, I am going to have the privilege to introduce TOP 15 Trainers in Possibilities Trainers Network. I have had the joy of personally training these trainers. It was utterly hard to pick only 15 out of a 100. However, a fair process allowed us to
make it possible.
I originally wanted to make a list of 10 trainers only. But I realize some of our trainers are too good to be left out. I stretched the list to 15. I still believe there are 5-6 other trainers in my network who should have made a place in the top 15.
1. ZAIN BIN KHALID
I have yet to see anyone who builds a connection the audience faster than Zain Bin Khalid. To me, Zain is a born trainer.
Zain has co-facilitated with me multiple times and I found him extremely energized, insightful and creative.

2. QAMAR SHERAZ
Qamar Sheraz is someone who started inspiring me even before he joined our Train The Trainer program.
I have never interacted with any participants before the program. Our team handles the three-stage tough selection process. Qamar somehow managed to get my number and sent me a very powerful video convincing me to select him for the program. [what he didn’t know was that he had already been selected for the pioneer batch].
Qamar was one of those three participants of batch one, who travelled with me and co-facilitated in my training with IFFCO.
Today, Qamar is the Head of Client Engagement at Possibilities and also the Head of Possibilities Trainers Network.
Qamar has assisted me in my training interventions with Friesland Campina, Honda, Mariestopes, etc.
Qamar is our key resource in the area of Public Speaking and Presentation Skills programs.
3. HARRIS CHAUDHRY
Harris is my personal favorite. In the first ever Train The Train program that I ran, he was my participant. In the second program, he was my co-facilitator. He has a natural talent.
No one has brought greater ease to me as a trainer in the last 18 months than Harris Chaudhry. He has been assisting me at every single step – from training design to delivery.

Farhan is a serious trainer. He is one of the most steadfast participants my team ever registered in my TTT programs.
His ability to ask innovative questions always amazed me. He is keen, inquisitive and practical. He is a problem solver at the core. He knows the art of understanding the underlying organization’s challenges and offering training solutions that serve the purpose.

Ayub is the liveliest trainer Possibilities has ever produced. He is a rare blend of bringing insightfulness and playfulness in a training program.
To me, he is an energy bank. I have rarely seen anyone using humour and wittiness so well in delivering serious training content.
Ayub was also part of those four trainers in his batch who got selected to experience a full circle training intervention with me.

15. AROOJ SAQIB
I had a very casual interaction with Arooj during a meditation experience with my Guru, Shehnaz Minallah in Islamabad.
I was pleasantly surprised to see her in my third batch of TTT certification class. Arooj was able to create a very special place in my mind due to her power questioning, active participation and high-energy engagement all through the session.
However, I only saw the best of Arooj when she was on stage presenting her final training project. She was full of passion. I could sense her personal commitment and belief behind every single idea she presented.
Arooj is a dreamer. In one of the exercises where I encourage participants to ‘finish their future in advance’, Arooj brought so much clarity to how she envisions herself by 2025; our team didn’t have a choice but to declare her the best participant of that exercise.
Arooj is our key resource in the North Region in the areas of Leadership and Executive Education.
In addition to these 15 Top Trainers, it will be unfair if I don’t mention the great work being done by the following trainers who also represent Possibilities Trainers Network.
These special names include:
- Our very own Javeria Nadeem, a master communicator and electrifying presenter. Javeria outperformed everyone else in multiple presentations during the program. She is innovative and exceptionally powerful. She is also the Head of Training Services at Possibilities.

- Abida Khawar and Mudassar Ghafoor are a very recent addition in the network.
They are all set to make their space in the training industry.
I would also like to mention some of our best participants who for some reasons have not been able to complete their TTT certification. I am extremely confident that they will astonish the market with their training magic. These under-training participants include Sara Ahmed, Ahtsham Ul Haq, Adeel Jhatla, Sabahuddin Waqar and Saera Fazal.
I wish these trainers all the best in their careers. And I am confident that they will make a huge impact on the training industry not only in Pakistan but at the global level too.
