London Administrator, Debating MattersEd Noel
Ed Noel has just graduated from the University of St Andrews, having studied philosophy, and joins the Debating Matters team to help it expand. He was part of the Barton Court Grammar School team which reached the national final of Debating Matters in 2008, and has worked as an alumnus with the competition since then.
His interests include long distance running, boxing, philosophising and debating and he also has an eclectic interest in schools debating, having run various competitions for different age groups over the years. Ed says the reason Debating Matters has secured his dedication is its genuine commitment to engaging young people with the issues which shape the world around them.
