Age holds a Master's degree in Comparative Politics from the University of Tartu and has previously worked at the Domus Dorpatensis Foundation for Science and Culture as the head of the Youth Leadership Programme, the Ministry of Education and Research and the Education and Youth Board as a chief expert. On a day-to-day basis, Age works as a consultant at Haap Consulting, where she is mainly involved in research and analysis. Age started her training journey by teaching argumenation skills, but has also taught an elective in political science at secondary school and supervised seminars at the University of Tartu.

"Experiences from different sectors have proven quite convincingly that critical thinking and argumentative communication are universal and welcomed companions in all professional situations," says Age, summing up his personal experience of developing argumentative skills.


The cooperation with SpeakSmart was very smooth. Our wishes were taken into account, we were actively involved and the seminar was well managed. Age was "present" in every sense and guided the process gently, without dominating.
