Presenters

Kristina Bliznashka
Technical Writer @ VMware Bulgaria
Less than two years ago, Krisi came into the world of technical documentation. After ten years in the field of sports journalism, she has taken a sudden turn in her career and has never regretted it. She is a tekom Bulgaria and regards the Roadshow initiatives as an opportunity to introduce others to what she has only learned recently. Sports remain her great passion, but now she is only in the role of a spectator.

Martina Laleva
Senior Technical Writer @ VMWare
Marti has been a technical Writer for the last two years. She believes that the existence of the profession rejects the dichotomous separation of people into right-science lovers and humanity lovers. Regardless of education and interests, people can succeed in the field of technical communication if they are ready to get out of their comfort zone and immerse themselves in a different professional world in which the understanding of technical matter is as important as the good utterance, precise grammar, and clear formulations. Technical writing requires research consistency, detective attention to detail, exploratory curiosity, much patience and a pinch of courage.

Jordan Georgiev
Senior Technical Writer @ VMWare Bulgaria
Jordan has nearly seven years of experience as a Technical Writer in various companies and in 2017 successfully passed the tekom Europe international certification program and received a certificate in technical communication. He agrees that curiosity is a basic quality that helps people to master the profession. When he’s not authoring documentation, Jordan loves to read on a variety of topics and attend concerts and festivals.

Desislava Mihaylova
Senior Technical Writer@Progress
Member of tekom Bulgaria Initiative Committee
Desi has been practicing the profession for nearly seven years now. She regards herself as an experimenter for whom technical writing is a vocation while building a career in technical communication is a natural process driven by enthusiasm and the mutual development of technical and soft skills. Along with writing, she maintains a blog about her hometown of Rousse and loves to volunteer.
