Margo Loor

Margo Loor

Equity officer

Margo is a debate trainer and teacher. He is one of the people who originally started the academic debate movement in Estonia in the mid-1990s. In addition to an active 20-year debate career (debater, coach, trainer), he has served as the CEO and chair of supervisory board of Estonian Debating Society. He has taught debate and argumentation in schools and universities in Estonia, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand and elsewhere. His current positions include the development director for SpeakSmart, the Estonian debate training company. Outside of the debating world, he is the chair of the supervisory board of Estonian Network of Nonprofit Association and a member of the management team of the Let’s Do It World Cleanup movement. Margo will be a great member of the equity team not only because he is a very approachable person, but also because he is one of the best mediators in conflicts and everyone who has worked with him knows he solves conflicts in the most rational and peaceful ways. So all participants would feel in the end that justice has been achieved.
