Sam judged, competed and coached at international level and was Chair of the World Universities Debating Council.
He worked in foreign affairs, education and consultancy, and completed a research thesis on the role debating can play in teaching mainstream curriculum subjects. Originally from the UK, Sam settled into life in Melbourne, teaching at Melbourne Grammar School.
Sadly, in 2019 Sam died from cancer. He is remembered by us as a great friend, an incisive mind, a deep thinker and a generous contributor to many causes, including this website.
