A debate, a charity gala, and a TV show. Debater and public speakers will be spoiled for choice in the next 8 days. Here’s a summary of what’s going on.

The Debate: This House is pleased by the rise of UKIP

Monday, 03 June – 7 pm – Old Bank of England, 194 Fleet St, EC4A 2LT

This Monday, our friends the Sylvans Debating Society return for their monthly debate (held on the first Monday of every month) the focus of which will be the recent success of anti-EU party, the UK Independence Part.

The debate will be a mano a mano contest between two of their distinguished members with audience members invited to offer their own opinions from the floor after the opening speeches.

Always a warm and welcoming environment for both the seasoned debater and the novice, we highly recommend you give this one a try

(admission free with voluntary contribution of £1 optional)

The TV Show: Live audience members needed for the Wright Stuff

Friday 07 June – 8.30 am – 12 pm – Whiteley’s shopping centre, Bayswater

Our budding friendship with morning show, the Wright Stuff, on Channel 5, continues to blossom as we have been invited back for a third time to fill up their studio with live audience members.

Come along and you will definitely get your face on the box (there’s only space for 20 people) and you might well be interviewed on live television also if you have something to say about the topic of debate, which is  selected on the day.

(Contact Tony Koutsoumbos at central.debating@gmail.com to register for the show)

The 5×5 is brought to you by our good friends, the College of Public Speaking. The challenge: Present 5 powerpoint slides in five minutes on te theme of education. Designed to parody the ‘death by powerpoint’ culture and demonstrate what a well prepared presentation really looks like, the Gala will feature the finest line-up of public speakers in the Capital – don’t miss it!
