The “it” factor has a name: MOXiE.

Jordan had it at the buzzer, Lady Gaga wears it like a second skin, Jagger still has it at 75 and Jobs left a legacy with it.

Swagger. Confidence. Moxie.

You know it when you see it and you feel it when you’re centered. But every superhero has his or her kryptonite, and for most – 75% of women and 73% of men – one fearsome foe relentlessly ties capes in a knot: Public Speaking.

Contrary to popular myth, performers are not born. Presentation performance is a learned skill – a refined ability as scientific as it is artistic, as accessible as it is transcendent. Whether in sports, art or business, superior performers amplify their abilities by practicing proven techniques, strategies and systems.
