We Focus on Fundamental Human Skills and Emotional Intelligence


Our Approach

Since 2015, Debate Mate has been disrupting the traditional world of professional learning and development.

The skills we teach are universally valuable and applicable. However, we appreciate that people learn in different ways, have different priorities and therefore require different approaches. Our expert facilitators provide instantaneous, personalised feedback, and enable participants to make progress in real time.

We strongly believe in the power of learning by doing. All of our engagements are high-touch, fully interactive and tailored to the organisation and cohort we’re working with. Our sessions are learner-centred, facilitator-led and participant-driven.

The skills we teach and the content we cover are genuinely practical and immediately applicable to the target cohort’s specific world of work. Unlocking core confidence has a compound impact and enables participants to develop in other areas beyond communication and leadership
