Fostering Debate Talent (FDT) Academy was founded in 2016 by Frankie Cena, with a single goal in mind: to help young people effectively voice their beliefs and discover their passion for public speaking. FDT has since become Canada’s leading provider of Debate, Speech, Model United Nations, and Scholar’s Cup coaching. We offer private and group lessons to students in grades K-12 and accept students on a rolling basis.

The skills students learn in public speaking will stay with them for the rest of their education and career, allowing them to give flawless presentations or snag their dream job in an interview; public speaking is an integral skill for everyone to learn!

FDT Academy can help your child…

Build confidence

Develop their resume and prepare for their future career

Work towards obtaining awards and accolades

Learn to think critically.

“As Frankie’s student, I had the opportunity to travel across the world and win tournaments that I never even imagined I would be able to attend – none of this would have been possible without his fantastic coaching and unending support.”

–Tatiana Kurschner, Former Team Canada Member, Cambridge Law Graduate.
