Empathy is an Impediment to Success – True or False?

Does having empathy make you successful? Or is it a hindrance, smothering logic with emotions? This debate will expose how empathy affects our work places, our policy-makers, and which charities we chose to support.

In this Oxford-style debate, the audience will decide whether the statement ‘empathy is an impediment to success’ is true or false. Bring your pre-conceived ideas and cast your vote as you enter, but don’t be surprised if your opinion has changed by the time our four speakers have shared their insights.
