Thank you for the educative session on POSH that you made to our ICC members on March 17, 2017. The narrative was well-structured, lucid and reinforced by examples from real-life-like situations. An especially good touch, were the ‘caselets’ you put before participants, seeking their responses on how they would act in given situations, which made the session interesting and ensured participation.
