Here at the Badge Guys we are big believers in the power of debate and the sharing of ideas, discussion and strategy to inspire informed thinking. We believe that everyone’s voice should be heard as every opinion counts and it is only through the active listening to conflicting ideas that an informed consensus can be formed. That is why we have focused on the power of debate weeks to help channel some of the discussion and allow people to have their say.
Below you will find a list of the recent themed debate weeks we have undertaken. Each debate week post links to the specific articles and posts which made up that debate week. So if you see a debate of interest simply click on the link and you will be taken through to the introduction article for that given week with links to the posts which made up the themed discussion.
As ever we welcome your comments and feedback so please feel free to leave your view point at the end of each article and one of the team will respond in kind as no debate is ever closed and we welcome your continued input.
