Competition and confidence
Community InvestmentAsia Pacific and Middle East
Over the course of 10 weeks, 25 volunteers from our Hong Kong office worked with two schools in Sham Shui Po to train students on formulating argument, writing speeches, and public speaking.
The program was part of Debate It!, our global flagship Community Investment program. We leverage our resources and the strengths of our people to develop students' critical thinking and presentation skills and deepen their knowledge of current affairs.
At the end of the 10-week session, representatives from both schools debated at our office to demonstrate and test their new skills. They became better at articulating their views and gained confidence in the process.
Critical thinking and presentation skills are vital for personal and professional success. Debate It! provides a unique opportunity for students to improve these skills with advice and coaching from our lawyers, helping them enhance their educational and employment prospects.
