Here at Intelligence Squared, our speakers never shy from a good round of intellectual fisticuffs, whether the topic is politics, foreign affairs, technology or culture. This year we’ve welcomed heavyweight speakers like Thomas Friedman, Tamsin Greig, Michael Barbaro, Jacob Rees-Mogg and Mehdi Hasan to our stage.

But our events fill up quickly. That’s why becoming a member is a smart move, as that way you guarantee yourself a seat at every debate. All you need to do is email us on members@intelligencesquared.com and we’ll reserve your seats.
