Debate
by Melanie d'Achon
How debate contributed to my personal & professional development
In a nutshell
My Competitive Mindset
Competitive swimming

at the
RACING in Paris
and
at the
McGill Masters Swim Club

International Debate Competitions

Brandstorm Competitions
(eg. L'Oréal Case Competition)
The combination of
my experiences abroad
as well as my
passion for competition
developed my continuing interest for debate conferences.

I believe that
debate competitions
have contributed

to both
my professional
and
my personal
development
.



What led me to debate
I define myself as
eclectic
Stepping out of my comfort zone
Meeting
people from around the globe
and keeping in touch with them

Meeting competitors from different countries who
challenged my personal conventions and beliefs

My presentation skills
Learned how to
structure my arguments
and ideas in a
clear
manner

Constantly being
prepared in advance
for any potential
rebuttal
from your
opponent

Enhanced my
presentation skills
on how to
motivate
the audience

Adapting my speech to
targeted audiences
Becoming open-minded
Building my confidence
Spoke in front of
very large audiences

(ex: Paris Annual Model United Nations with around
200 debaters
)

Learned how to
deal with
stress
by
always being prepared

Learned how to speak with a
loud and clear voice
so that people would listen and be
convinced
Teamwork
Learned how to work in large
teams
with the objective of
finding a common ground

Learned
how to make concessions
in order to find a
practical solution

How to
persuade
fellow debaters to take my side

Ultimate goal is to
agree on a resolution

To
conclude
, if I had to
argue
why I should be given the chance to join
IE
I would argue the following:

Have I convinced you
Thank you
for your time
and
consideration

objective

Configuring
the pros and the cons
of every argument

other side
of the
argument
