In this workshop we will explore how to build a strong case for any side of an argument in a debate.
More than simply preparing a presentation a debate speaker must both inform their audience of a problem and provide them a solution all in one with enough evidence and emotional weight to motivate a listener to vote, donate or even buy the argument or plan you are making.
