Steamworks Welcomes the Economic Summit
Steamworks Brew Pub is the venue for Vancouver Economic Summit April 12, 2022 – 5:30 Happy Hour – Open Debate
Vancouver Economic Summit celebrates 10 Years in 2022 and now that Corona mandate restrictions have been removed in British Columbia, we are returning to Steamworks Brew Pub at 375 Water Street, Gastown Vancouver (beside water front train station) for Tuesday April 12 at 5:30.
Join us for Happy Hour at Steamworks to enjoy Appys and Beer, to debate the latest world news and views in an open source, round-table discussion.
Since 2012 a bi-monthly meetup for “appys and beer” has been held in Vancouver, to host friendly debate and exchange ideas. An agenda is available and members are invited to speak their minds and exercise free speech, in a casual atmosphere with polite decorum.
We respectfully allow all participants to share viewpoints, on the topics outlined in the articles and videos selected by the founder from the submission of members. The informal nature of the discourse enables a “speed debate”
HOW TO SPEED DEBATE – “CUT TO THE CHASE”
What is Speed Debating?
A debate is a structured argument. Two sides speak alternately for and against a particular contention usually based on a topical issue. Unlike the arguments you might have with your family or friends however, each person is allocated a time they are allowed to speak for and any interjections are carefully controlled.
Why speed debate?
It is an excellent way of improving speaking skills and is particularly helpful in providing experience in developing a convincing argument. Those of you who are forced to argue against your natural point of view realize that arguments, like coins, always have at least two sides.
