Throw yourself into a free flowing hour of improvisation where two leading philosophers riff on whatever - from aardvarks to zeitgeist - you want to ask. 

"The Philosophy Slam format with Mark and Robert is deeply thought-provoking, insightful and engaging, not only that, but it’s also incredibly fun ... The format is one of the most original I’ve come across, it’s highly versatile and can be used to warm up audiences at conferences or inspire leaders about specific themes on training days. I’ve commissioned philosophy slams with all sorts of FTSE100 clients who have hugely enjoyed it. The only problem is it’s too short!"
