Attention Freshers and existing students alike!

Want to learn how to become a charismatic speaker and win the hearts of an audience? Wish you had the secret tools to make convincing arguments? Have you heard about this debating thing but are not really sure where to start or how to get involved? We got you!

The Aalto and Helsinki Debating Societies are running Debate School to teach you the ins and outs of debating on the 7th, 16th and 25th of September. Events will be hosted partly in-person and partly online. This event requires a sign-up, as places are limited.

This first session will focus on making a persuasive argument and standing up to speak. We will explore the world of reasoning and persuasion and learn how to be confident when standing up to speak. We will teach you useful concepts of speaking and practice skills together. The focus is on the core: being able to speak convincingly in any situation in front of any audience – skills that we believe benefit everyone in their studies and work life.

We look forward to seeing you there, and welcome! Cross-posted from Aalto Debating Society on September 05, 2021 at 10:19PM
