Event Participants Testimonials

Here’s what our past participants had to say about their training experience with us!

As a seasoned competitor, I feel that MPSO provided a wholesome and empowering experience because of the overall structure, judging panels, and competitiveness of my fellow participants. When looking for a challenge, MPSO provides a venue that is second to none. My personal belief after several years of competing and now as a trainer myself. MIDP’s events kickstarted a challenging yet fun experience for public speaking for me.
SCOTT LAM JONE WING
Participant at the Malaysia Public Speaking Open (2020)
ABP 2020 was the first major I attended that was hosted by MIDP, and it was quite impressive how the organizing committee was able to manage 162 teams and more than 300 people so smoothly. I enjoyed the high quality tournament especially because of the diverse participation. The motions used in the tournament were challenging and the experience gained from the tournament definitely made me grow as a debater.
AMY SUHANA
Participant at the Asian British Parliamentary Championship (2020)
During the MNSC 2020, my boys learnt how to develop their skills, ideas and presented their stories confidently using verbal & non-verbal communication skills. The experience that they gained through competitions organized by MIDP has helped us in our learning journey and fits in to our learning ethos perfectly. We definitely encourage parents to send their children to join MIDP events as soft skills education is a vital part of any child’s learning process.
DIANE LEE
Mother of 2 participants at the Malaysia National Storytelling Championship 2020
I felt that MNSDC provided a much better experience than normal competitions that I’ve entered, because of the amount of feedback from the judges. In this competition, the judges for my rounds were kind enough to give us personal feedback after the rounds and answer any of our questions. In my opinion, feedback is the most important thing in every competition as that’s the aspect that helps us grow as debaters.
LIYANA MOHAMMED RAFIDZ
Participant at the Malaysian National Schools Debating Championship (2021)
I always enjoy competing at MIDP tournaments. They have responsive organisers, lightning fast tabulation teams and experienced adjudicators who provide in-depth feedback. Motions are always varied, with some coming entirely out of left field, but always offering interesting and engaging debates. MIDP is a great place to be for debaters eager to test their mettle and improve themselves.
