Tilbury House at Budapest Open 2019

March is a month in which one tournament follows another, so Tilbury House didn’t want to miss the opportunity to participarte at Budapest Open.
With two teams and one judge, we traveled to Hungary to participate at one of Europe’s biggest tournaments.
We enjoyed the diverse range of motions, anyhow we’re also proud to announce that our Novice team, consisting of Lin Jung and Peter Solbach, achieved a remarkably good score for their first tournament participation.

Tilbury at Munich Research Open 2019

Tilbury at Munich Research Open 2019

As little exception from the rule, Tilbury didn’t debate aboard at the weekend of 8th to 10th March 2019, but in the beautiful city of Munich in Germany.
Five teams were ambitious to compete. Amongst them one Novice team, Yann von der Brelie and Juliette Rouselle, two Pro-Am teams, Joelle Hellfrish and Jasmin Yan, Philipp Kowalski and Leonie da Col, and two experienced teams, Michael Breiman and Ida Holschbach, and Helena Hecke and Ruben Dillmann.

The big delegation met a proportionally numerous amount of debaters at Munich. Unfortunately none of our teams broke but noticed statisfying results in our score of speaking points.

Debating Workshop – Principle Arguments

Coming Thursday, 7th March 2019, we continue with our workshop. The workshop will focus of an essential part of argumentation: Principal arguments.
Principal arguments are frequent in debates, the basis for entire cases. As easily as they can be made, they can be made equally vague and less impactful than the speaker expected.
Beginning at 7.30 pm in Hörsaal XVII b in the Hauptgebäude of the University of Coogne, our Workshop Coach will teach you how to make strong principal arguments, and how to deliver them with a plausible argumentation to your audience.
