Presidents and neuroscientists give them. They have been watched more than a billion times, live and online, all across the globe. They are not merely presentations — They are inspiration. They are ideas that influence more ideas. They are catalysts and they are answers to questions no one’s thought to ask. They are among the most revered keynotes in today’s world. They are TED Talks.

Train Today, TED Tomorrow

TED Talks feel familiar because they employ the same structure time and again. The structure itself evokes curiosity and empathy in viewers. But you don’t need a large audience or a lengthy history of corporate accomplishments to give a TED-worthy Talk. At The Moxie Institute, we help you learn how to capture the magic of world-famous speeches in a style that’s completely your own.


What our TEDx Speakers Have to Say

I had the privilege of working with Fia on my speech for TEDx San Diego. As a speaker coach, Fia doesn’t settle for anything less than the best. She went to great lengths to help me bring my thoughts and ideas to life. Fia helped me achieve my lifelong goal of writing a speech that told my story and also inspired and ignited the audience.

Lex Gillette, Paralympic Medalist

“Truly a magical experience to have you for my TED talk. You rocked my world! Thank you for being who you are and for the work you do! I truly appreciate the nuggets you bring to speakers’ greatness. And, as a storyteller, I am so thankful for the pearls of wisdom.

Tererai Trent, Tererai Trent International

As Maya Angelou would say, ‘When you know better, you do better.’ After interviewing a couple different TEDx coaches I found the perfect person for me: Fia Fasbinder rocked my world. She helped me get very clear on what my idea worth spreading truly is. I’m soooo happy to have a plan and a system to do this right this time. #HappyIFoundFia”

Janine Driver, CEO, Body Language Institute

I had the good fortune to have Fia as my speech coach for TEDxAFC. While I’ve done hundreds of speeches, she helped me turn my presentation into a performance — and the response was fantastic! She was able to provide specific feedback about language, emphasis, pacing, body movement, etc, that was super constructive. I give a her my strongest endorsement!”
