Skills for Life
Saturday, 29 January 2022 - 10:00am to Sunday, 30 January 2022 - 1:00pm

Debating and public speaking are useful skills for life. Kids who learn to speak in public from an early age benefit themselves throughout their professional working lives. The ability to analyse and understand, to structure one’s speech, to present one's views to an audience, to listen, to see somebody else's point of view and the ability to build cohesive arguments are important skills for kids to develop.

Good speakers are able to change people's opinions and feelings, not just provide information. Kids can learn about these skills and know how to achieve them in the fun and engaging workshops on Art of debating and Public speaking. 

The emphasis of the workshop is to learn about concepts through dialogue and questioning. No debate or public speaking experience is necessary. Participants will receive certificates on completion of the workshop.

Fee: INR 1200 per workshop
