The PES Debating Society competes in Asian and British parliamentary debates on a national and international scale. We are well known for our annual tournament, the PES Debate, which has in it's previous iterations played host to some of the best speakers and adjudicators from around the world. We hold weekly practice sessions and participate in tournaments every other weekend.
The activity includes speaking for over seven minutes continuously after a minimal preparation time. Debate motions can vary from international and national news, social movements, sports, different religions of the world and many more.
Students of any year and branch can join the club. Our recruitment process involves filling a form followed by interviews. Here, we look for cogency in arguments and an active interest in learning more. We can train you in speaking itself if the prior criteria is met.
