Ollie has been involved with the Debating Matters Alumni program for several years now. He took part in the competition in 2010/11 as part of the team from Steyning Grammar School, making it through to the South East Regional Final. Ollie also works with the Migrant English Project, a community group based in Brighton that focuses on providing English lessons and support to refugees and asylum seekers who speak little or no English. Outside of work and debating, he also enjoys running, going to the gym, obstacle racing and boxing.
