Welcome to the Argument Clinic
Have you ever struggled to get your point across or work out exactly what it is you want to say in the first place?
Have you ever had your words twisted and your opinion mis-represented?
Have you ever had to make a judgement call between two people when you think they've both got a point?
....then we want to hear from you!
How can we help?
Clinic sessions are run by trained debate coaches with a history of applying their expertise in different domains including politics, journalism, sales, and the law. The first hour of each session features a talk on how to deal with each of the problems listed above and the second hour is an open Q&A where you receive tailored advice on how to apply the techniques learnt in the first half to your own specific situations.
How many sessions are there in a clinic?
Three in total with each session spaced a week apart to give you time to process everything you learnt the previous week while keeping it fresh in your head for the next one. The Clinics are repeated every 3 months, so if you can't make it this time, you can always come along to the next one, which will be in January.
What does each session cover?
Monday 12th October: How to speak with purpose and clarity
Monday 19th October: How to think on your feet
Monday 26th October: How to judge a debate
Do you need to attend all three sessions to get the most out of it?
Nope. The way the clinic is structured means you learn how to apply a different skill and solve a different problem each week. So, if you come to all three, you'll certainly learn more, but you won't miss out or fall behind if you can only make it one.
