European Roots 

SpeakSmart Pakistan is a part of the international SpeakSmart company, with headquarters in Tallinn, Estonia, European Union. The roots of argumentation and debate in modern civilization are traced back to ancient European cultures, Greek city states and the Roman Empire. From there, argumentation spread to the UK, where it became the foundation for the Parliament. Later developments took argumentation skills from Europe to US, Asia and beyond. It is this European heritage, that SpeakSmart Pakistan services and mindset is imbued with.

 

Social Responsibility 

We believe it is our responsibility to give back to the society by donating a part of our profits for its betterment. A significant share of the generated income of SpeakSmart Pakistan is therefore being used to fund debating activities at the student level through debate organizations “The Debating Circuit” and “Debaters Resource Group”. These partners teach debate and argumentation skills to students in high schools and universities in order to develop competitive debate in Pakistan and thereby endorse argumentation skills in society.  

In 2015 SpeakSmart Estonia was awarded Silver level of Corporate Social Responsibility by the prestigious Business Forum in the Republic of Estonia, EU. SpeakSmart also serves as a prominent founding member of the Estonian Social Enterprise Network.
