Debaters in action Cork Toastmasters Vs PCDS June 2013
Typical Gesturing Facing your audience
People are natural debaters. Almost every conversation could be called a debate once two people are exchanging ideas or thoughts. Have you had any dialogue with your employer, partner, or children today or this week, chances are it ended in an exchange of ideas. Were you at a meeting where ideas were flowing and you contributed, the chances are you were debating how to maybe get the job done with the least cost and effort. All this is debating all be it not in a formal manner but non the less you were debating
Everyone has debated, and almost everyone has debated more recently than they think. Debating is everywhere, on the television and radio, in the newspapers, and in our workplace. As a society, we debate about almost everything - from the prices of everything to washing the car. Everyone can do it. What´s more, debating gives you the chance to meet new people and generate new ideas. Best of all, you have the opportunity to stand up and argue with someone in public, in a stimulating and organised dispute about real issues. Debating improves your skills of formal argument and best of all, debating is fun..
