services-imageBusiness leaders are often called on to give speeches and make presentations. But let’s face it, very few people are born performers. With that in mind, theatrical instructor Fia Fasbinder created the Moxie Institute to bridge the gap between the realms of business and the performing arts. The Moxie Institute teaches presentation skills to business professionals, coaching them to act naturally and to speak confidently and clearly when called upon to give public talks.

Handling public speaking with confidence is only part of the equation. Whether making informal speeches or keynote presentations, today’s business leaders are expected to communicate in a way audiences can easily understand. Speaking to shareholders or board members is different from addressing an audience that may be unfamiliar with industry-specific jargon.

Fortunately, onstage performance is a skill anyone can learn. The Moxie Institute helps business professionals at any level, from complete newcomers to public speaking to experienced speakers who just need a little brushing up on their skills. The Moxie Institute provides one-on-one training, as well as corporate workshops designed for teams.

The Moxie Institute’s team is made up of professionals from many disciplines, including award-winning actors, designers, entrepreneurs, musicians and writers. It’s the perfect blend of talent, designed to help you tell your story effectively. We train business leaders to reach audiences using a combination of classroom learning and on-stage exercises.
