Stepping into the Oxford Union & British Parliamentary Debate

Through the loving support of my MBA colleagues, I am very honoured to have been elected first position into Oxford Union’s governing Standing Committee.

At the heart of the Oxford experience, we are the world’s largest and perhaps most well-known debating society. We host speeches and debates by distinguished guests ranging from global leaders like President Nixon and Prime Minister Thatcher to celebrities including Psy and MJ, allowing students to meet and question the people that shape our world.

Back at the business school, my team had led us to a thrilling victory at our inaugural MBA debate this term, as we go on to meet our counterparts at the Blavatnik School of Government and the Cambridge Union. Yesterday was also my first tournament representing Oxford with 7 other competitive debaters at the European Universities Debating Championships Challenge hosted by Kazakhstan this year.

Together, I am looking forward to having Debates, the Union and Saïd Business School flourish as forums that openly and brilliantly welcome, both digitally on LinkedIn and in person at our chambers, all past, present and future Oxonians as we step into our 925th year in full embrace of passion and diversity.
