“Primary and Selective Demand Marketing Strategies for Sustainable Growth” by Chris Liasidis

Seminar Overview
In contemporary times, businesses need to devise strategies to sustain and grow in the market they serve. This seminar sheds light on strategies that corporations adopt in their effort to grow, sell more, and continue with their sustainability tactics.  Primary and selective demand strategies provide the means to achieve such an attempt.


12.30 – 13.30
“Resilience in times of crisis: How to utilise social and psychological resources” by Dr Vassilis Chatzibirros

Seminar Overview
"Resilience is usually defined as the ability to withstand adversity and crises in life and recover from these difficulties. However, we each respond to stress and adversity differently, like the stress from the COVID-19 pandemic. The seminar will focus on why we respond differently to stress and crises as well as the psychological and social factors that help us build and strengthen resilience".


14.00 – 15.00
“Agile Software Development Methods: How to manage constant and rapid change in IT projects” by Dr Dimitris Dranidis

Seminar Overview
Although in the past, heavyweight methodologies, such as the Waterfall model, were considered as the industry standard software development process for IT projects, the situation has changed, and in the last decade, most of the software development companies have adopted more agile software development methodologies. This change happened partially in response to business globalisation and the rapidly changing business environment and business needs, and partially in response to the fast evolving IT technologies, both of which require agile and adaptable processes in order to deal with changes. The seminar will highlight some of the key features of these agile methods, such as SCRUM and Extreme Programming.


In the frame of the Open Seminar Day, participants will have the opportunity to meet Mr. Gregory Dikaios, Director of Recruitment, to learn more about the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes offered at CITY College, University of York Europe Campus in Thessaloniki, Greece that lead to Bachelors and Masters degrees awarded by the University of York.
