A Bouquet being presented to Dr. Om Kaul

This Workshop was conducted on 21st June 2003 in Mumbai for the youth of our biradari, as part of ongoing 'Service Activity' of KPA, with the idea that such events enhance the community relationship along with the career development. This probably is a unique event for a social and cultural organisation like ours. Some of the topics discussed were:

a) Understanding the Concept of Personal Effectiveness. b) Understanding one's Personality Development Areas. c) Enhancing Social Effectiveness. d) Building an Effective Career.

The participants were young Kashmiri Pandits occupying managerial positions in various companies, including other young persons completing their MBA courses. The programme was conducted by none other than the eminent International Management Consultant Dr. Om Kaul. A flower bouquet was presented to Dr. Kaul by Shri M.L.Mattoo, President, KPA as a token of appreciation.

The Board of Trustees, KPA extends thanks to Dr. Om Kaul for acceding to its request and conducting the programme successfully.
