As a person who has visited a number of such events, I admit I am left slightly surprised by the way the subject was presented by the speakers. They managed to not only retain the audience’s attention during the whole time but also to provoke an interesting discussion. I thank them for their time to address our questions individually”,

shares assistant Dr. Miroslava Boneva, Ruse University “Angel Kanchev”.

“I find the combination of presentations with a discussion on case studies from the participant’s practice particularly intriguing. I hope that I could take part in similar initiatives in the near future”,
