Yeahhh my Biggest Waste of Money seminar, by far, was with a person who has only ever had BCs. A person who has been extremely successful on the national and international stage and who is touted as an excellent educator. Who had no flippin clue how to help the non-BC/non-BC-like dogs in the a class that was mostly non-BCs.
Mine was oddly not the seminar mentioned above. It was with a trainer who is also a judge, who I had heard would be great because "she doesn't just run BCs! She has a (breed removed because it might make the person too obvious)!" I didn't find out until after the seminar that she told a friend that she only runs the Other Breed at indoor trials, because the dog won't run for her outdoors.

The other sign of a good instructor (in my opinion, now that I'm in full rant mode) is that their response to "I'm not going to get there for the front cross" can't be "well run faster". How's about you help me figure out a way to handle this line that I can do? My favorite seminar person puts that out pretty much at the beginning of the lesson. "I will never tell you to run faster, because I will assume you are doing your best. We'll find a different way to make things work."
