After the thematic courses dedicated to social technologies, we will continue in April and May with persuasive communication - how to achieve the desired goals in public communication; the role of social flirtation; how to be noticed and liked; social networks - stylistics of behavior and highlighting the individuality. In the summer we will talk about the style and culture of clothing, hairstyle and makeup. September and October are dedicated to business and diplomatic protocol, and in the last months of the year we will analyze the building of personal and corporate image.
You can read here some of the opinions of the participants in the forum:
Desislava Krasteva, PR expert at the Court of Appeal - Varna:
The training was great! I strongly recommend it! I hope that this course will be repeated so that today's students and other alumni like me (and part of our group of students) have the opportunity and pleasure to gain experience and knowledge from Prof. Kaftandzhiev. Those two days passed easily. Interesting, professional analysis of the best of modern world advertising and digital communication. I am glad that VFU "Chernorizets Hrabar" has started this programme and that we have two more lectures ahead. And then I look forward to new ones.
Emilian Yalamov, journalist and organizer at the Center for Support of Personal Development - Municipal Children's Complex - Varna:
I was a student of Prof. Hristo Kaftandzhiev 30 years ago, when he taught in the specialty "Journalism and Mass Communications" at VFU "Chernorizets Hrabar". I am really happy to be able to meet again a scientist and professor of his rank. Prof. D.Sc. Hristo Kaftandzhiev teaching is extremely fascinating. He is able to immerse students in the subject and make them active participants in the educational process. He uses a lot of examples from practice, which contributes to easier assimilation of the material.
