The Secret of Success

It is a well-known fact that in order to be successful, you need to be able to communicate effectively. No matter how smart you may be, not being able to communicate with others and share your ideas will effectively neutralize all that is going for you.

Why Speech and Debate?

Well-represented world figures want you to know…

Speech is power: speech is to persuade, to convert, to compel. Speech is civilization itself, it is silence which isolates.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Your ability to communicate with others will account for fully 85% of your success in your business and in your life.

Brian Tracy
