  • What we believe

    Resolving disagreement through debate is how healthy democracies make decisions. Achieving this purpose means seeing disagreement not as a problem to be managed but an opportunity to be embraced. Because the best way to prove ourselves right is to do all we can to prove ourselves wrong.

  • About us

    'A great debate means hearing both sides of the argument and both sides of the argument hearing each other.'

    Tony Koutsoumbos

    Founder and Debate Trainer

    A former political activist and public relations specialist, Tony launched Debating London in 2009, a debate club for adults who missed out on the opportunity to join one at school or university . Since then, over 4000 Londoners have signed up, and last year Tony launched the Great Debaters Club, the Capital's only 12 month training programme for newcomers to debating.

    Jason Maude


    The former President of the Nottingham University Debating Society, Jason is an experienced speaker and debate judge. In 2009 he joined forces with Tony to launch Debating London and is the club's resident debate judge. No public debate is complete until Jason has offered the audience his analysis of the arguments to help them tell substance from style before they cast their vote.
