Danielle Miller
Speech and Debate Coaching

A strategic approach to speech and debate that prioritizes truth, creativity, and empathy

Creativity

You have the ability to develop skills and come up with ideas that no one else can. Learn from coaches and better competitors, but remember that you can rise above your role models not by imitating them, but by becoming the best version of yourself.

Truth

When searching for debate arguments or speech topics, prioritize communicating something true over what you think will win. It is always easier to convince someone of something that you honestly believe.

Empathy

Put yourself in your judge's shoes. The more you know about what they understand and believe, the more you know about what is necessary to explain and persuade.

About Danielle

I coach Team Policy debate and platform speaking events. My expertise is with the Christian speech and debate league NCFCA, where I have competed successfully for the past four years.

My goal in coaching is to help you become better at impacting people, but how you get there is learning how to win judges. I coach by asking questions to shift your thinking, and by challenging the underlying perspectives that are holding you back.
