Welcome to SPEAK!
SPEAK's mission is to promote public speaking, debate, education, and advocacy. The SPEAK team provides free, public speaking and debate courses. We offer the SPEAK program as either an eight-week curriculum or a day-long seminar.
Your voice, your program, your way!

Session 1: Why Debate? Debate as a Tool for Professional Practice
Session 2: The Principles of Public Speaking: Voice, Body, Structure
Session 3: Let's Have a Debate: Selecting a Topic
Session 4: Conducting Thorough Research
Session 5: Constructing Solid Argumentation I
Session 6: Constructing Solid Argumentation II
Session 7: Refutation
