Paradigm Statement

Hello! My name is Jorge Gomez and I am a Speech and Debate coach who considers these events as a powerful and natural expression of human emotions and thoughts. When it comes to debate, please consider the delivery of your speech. If we, the audience, cannot understand or hear your points and evidence then already we are starting off with a rocky foundation. At the same time, speed is a natural thing in a timed setting. I understand if you have to say your arguments at a quick pace. I'm just not comfortable with someone speaking as fast as super humanely possible. There is a line that you should consider. Quality arguments and weighing them are always stronger than listing countless cards without much weighing or explanation. Signposting is always welcome in your speeches as it helps with the flow of the debate. Consider time limits...going over grace periods could cost points. And most importantly...please be respectful during all events which includes speech, in between rounds and different speakers.
