- PhilSpeaks, Proudly Sponsored by A&L Goodbody
This year we aim to bring the art of oratory and debate to students from the first to third year of secondary in a manner which is both fun and productive. The workshop will be run by the members and debaters of the Phil, who make up some of Ireland’s top debaters, include former members of Ireland’s World Schools team. The format caters for those who have never debated to the more advanced, with small group teachings, ensuring no individual is lost or left out. The workshop seeks to provide students with the confidence to present analytical arguments in a public setting; with which they can then both improve their own debating and employ persuasive oratory in their daily lives.
Unfortunately this year’s junior schools workshop has already taken place, but if you’re interested email firstname.lastname@example.org to join our mailing list.
