What we're about
This is a new group for people to exercise public speaking, negotiating, interview and debate. The aim is to overcome any anxieties and push your brain to the max!
Usually debate societies are held at top universities like Yale but I feel this important tool of critical thinking that should be accessible to everyone.
There will be a loose format where we can choose role scenarios. We will debate tough subjects and you'll be required to argue from both sides of the fence.
Think of the exercises as a mind game of chess with the board moves being made by our knowledge, reasoning and persuasion.
Aristotle quote: “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”
A broad knowledge base will be useful but not necessary. No points are scored, the meetup's main driver is shared self development.
