It was a very informative workshop. Drivers share their experience and issues without any obligation. This workshop provides in- depth information to driver’s about how to provide professional services to guests. Same time it also helps the organization understand driver mentality. Aarya village should organize workshops with the other stakeholders to provide effective services.
