Debating For Everyone is an agency offering training and consultancy for debating and public speaking, founded and led by Julian Bell.
From 2000 to 2021 Julian Bell was Head of English and Debating at Godolphin and Latymer School in London. In September 2021 he retired from teaching to devote himself full time to his passion for debating. He provides training in debating to students in prep, primary and secondary schools both in person and online across the UK, and overseas, including schools in Spain and the USA. He also runs a number of debating competitions both online and in person.
Julian Bell is the author of The Debating Book: everything you ever need to know about debating. He is currently working on his second book, Think LIke A Debater, which will cover all the most commonly debated issues while also training debaters in thinking skills.
Julian has helped the following schools set up debating from scratch:
- Radnor House School, Sevenoaks
- Deer Park School, Twickenham
- The German School in London
- St Alban's High School
- Haberdasher's Aske's Boys' Prep School
- Glendower Prep School, London
- Kensington Prep School, London
- Charterhouse School, Surrey
- Oak House School, Barcelona
Debating For Everyone is unique in that all training is delivered exclusively by Julian Bell. Whereas comparable debating training agencies (at comparable prices) are likely to use student trainers with little or no teaching experience, he brings 35 years' experience of teaching and 22 years of being at the heart of schools debating.
