Judge Profile — Bob Dalrymple

Location: Scotland.  Bob was a regular competitor and adjudicator on the global debating circuit in the mid-to-late 1990s.  He’ll thank you not to note just how long ago that was.


Bob won the John Smith Memorial Mace in 1996, competing for the University of Edinburgh.  He was a finalist in the World Universities Debating Championships in 1996 and 1997, double winner of The Scotsman Scottish championships, and a regular winner or finalist in intervarsity competitions in the UK and Ireland.


He also won the stand-up comedy competition at Worlds in Princeton in 1995 against, he admits, a weak field. 


Bob has adjudicated the finals and breaks of many national and international tournaments, and represented Scotland twice on Worlds Council.


Bob now works in the whisky industry and plans to enter politics.
