To achieve this, we have built a sustainable model that sees profits from our commercial and international work power growth in our charitable programmes. \n__\n\nThe Debate Mate Group comprises three complementary parts:\n\nDebate Mate Schools: a non-profit established in 2008 to create social mobility in some of the world’s poorest neighbourhoods. Our programmes are taught by university students, many of whom were themselves Debate Mate students while at school. Since starting in just 30 secondary schools in London, we now work in 300 internationally, and have reached over 50,000 young people in over 40 countries. Notable partners include: Bill Gates, Usain Bolt, David Beckham, David Cameron & Theresa May.\n\nDebate Mate Limited: we provide world-class communication and leadership training, executive coaching, engagement events and consultancy for the business world. Our unique methodology is based on competitive debating, and our programmes are delivered by young, dynamic and fearless mentors. We have worked with over 5,000 professionals from blue-chip companies across the world, increasing the capacity of individuals and teams and, ultimately, adding to our clients' bottom line. Notable clients include: McKinsey & Co, Deloitte, Tesco, Standard Chartered (NYC), Slaughter and May & Premier League.\n\nDebate Mate Online: an award-winning EdTech start-up, backed by UCL and Google, that is revolutionising the way teachers and students learn. We've been selected to join the DIT's EdTech Mission to the UAE and have been nominated for the Yidan Prize. The next phase is to deliver training to the corporate world, and eventually via an app to the general public.
