  • The 2018 Great Communicators Tournament finals taking place live at Liberty Forum

New to Liberty Forum this year is the Great Communicators Tournament. With preliminary rounds throughout the year, the 2018 Great Communicators Tournament finals will take place live at the Atlas Network Liberty Forum.

The liberty movement is winning the battle of ideas, but in order to win the policy and political debates, we need great communicators who persuasively discuss and defend the free market and individual freedom.

Think Freely Media has addressed this challenge with the Great Communicators Tournament, an annual event that identifies and promotes individuals who can make emotionally compelling arguments that take the free market or pro-liberty position on current public policy issues. Be there and let us know who you think is the greatest of the Great Communicators.
