SYMPOSIUM-Debate Competition
A discussion is central to a professional's career, where disagreements have to be churned out to agreements and understanding. Without this process, one's ability to work efficiently with a team or an organisation is drastically hindered. The first round was organised on 1st November, 2016 was a team event which required participants to solve riddles.  The teams were asked to specify whether they wish to participate in the event as a delegate of a country or as journalists. The second round proceeded as, for the delegates, it was an impromptu speaking – extempore. For the journalists, it was a test of their listening skills. The final round was when they all were asked to bare their debating skills. While for delegates, counties and agendas were allotted on a lottery system. Teams were given a particular agenda reflecting the current stance of their representative country on the issue of concern. The journalists were set free to grill the delegates on issues ranging from Brexit to Renewable energy. The event culminated with one delegate team and one journalist.
