All’s fair in love and debate – an introduction to tactics.
This session will focus on the roles and responsibilities of our debaters and how we can make sure we are always one step ahead of the other team!
This workshop for debaters and speakers of all skill ranges will cover the causes of public speaking anxiety, the exercises we can use to find our voice for delivering a speech and the applied rhetoric skills developed from years of speaking experience.
