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.
The Moxie Institute helps you build your presentation skills. We can assist you to overcome any obstacle, whether you suffer from a bit of stage fright or you find yourself having to face distracted audiences that are busy looking at their smartphones. We combine the disciplines of neuroscience and the performing arts to ensure you’ll command the stage and reach your audience.
The Moxie Institute’s Presentation Skills Workshops provides intensive instruction and training to ensure you always put your best foot forward. Our corporate workshops train individuals, teams and organizations to master a wide array of communication situations, including sharpening sales pitches and mastering spontaneous discussions with superiors. Our multi-step process is easy for anyone to memorize. But don’t be fooled — our presentation skills training is easy to learn, but the information is strictly high-level.
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.
