Join us and we will teach you how to speak in public, think strategically, and deal with conflict. We will then give you a platform to lead by example in our monthly debates, that are free to attend and open to all, so you can show those in search of a more civil way to examine our differences what it really means to be a great debater.
We provide 2 types of events:
Public Speaking and Debate Training workshops - Instead of inviting guest speakers to sit on our debate panels, we train our members to defend the competing perspectives shaping the debate in their own words and develop the skills that allow our members to tackle any topic and find the arguments for any side.
Public debates - Every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month we debate issues that divide public opinion, which this year ranged from inducting Ukraine into NATO and deposing Boris Johnson to falling UK birth rates and fake news. Topics are expressed not as a question, but as a proposal that the audience must vote to accept or reject after hearing all the arguments
