Business 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 through one-on-one training as well as corporate workshops designed for teams.

When a speech touches emotions and inspires change, it’s not a fluke; it’s a carefully crafted story supported by thoughtful imagery and neuroscience. With over 80% of daily impressions perceived through our eyes, it’s no surprise that effective visual communication is imperative for business success, especially when giving a make-or-break presentation.
