​​​​​​​​​​​Personal & Professional De​velopment (PPD)PPDimg.png

​The PPD area incorporates personal and professional training and development activities, whether these are formal business skills or soft skills such as communication and team-working.

In JCI Aberdeen we run a PPD event almost every month and ranging from interview skills to project management and from personal goal setting to personal finance.

Through the national and international JCI organisations, numerous training events are open to members during the year. Many of these are offered during conferences (see International); for example the JCI Presenter to help improve public speaking skills or JCI Trainer to learn how to develop training skills. Visit​ for more details on these courses.

Public Speaking & Debating

JCI is one of the few arenas where members can practice and acquire skills in the art of public speaking and debating. JCIA has a long tradition of success in this field and has enjoyed considerable success at national and international levels. Some members have excelled at this skill despite not initially recognising it in themselves. Whether your interest lies in spectating or participating, all are very welcome!

​JCIA holds annual individual Public Speaking and team Debating competitions which offer something for everyone, from novices to those with previous experience.​
