Wales & South West
After graduating in English Literature and Cultural Criticism from Cardiff University in 2013, Craig spent the vast majority of his time working on several acting projects and attending various debating competitions, before becoming a Mentor in 2014 and eventually the South West Regional Ambassador in 2016 and then the Wales Ambassador in 2017.
Craig's experience working with the English Speaking Union has ranged from many School's Mace Judging rounds and Discover Your Voice Workshops, to being the Convenor of the John Smith Memorial Mace Welsh Leg many times, and Judge of the John Smith Memorial Mace International Final. He now spends his time organising the network of mentors across Wales. Fun fact: Craig does live on a farm. Nobody ever mentions it though.
This hasn't impacted on Craig's love of extra debating however, as he still finds the opportunity to go to tournaments across Europe. As a speaker, he has spoken in 5 finals at tournaments in Swansea, Aberystwyth, SOAS, Helsinki, and the Estonian Open where he was also 2nd best speaker. As a judge, Craig has judged the final rounds at 75 tournaments, being Chief Adjudicator at tournaments in Wales, England, and Finland, and a breaking judge at Vienna and Tallinn European University Debating Championships in 2015 and 2017. His goal is to break 100 times.
