Developing leaders, teams, and organizations.



Go from boring to bravo!

Set into motion by NYU-trained performer, acclaimed theatrical instructor, and professional public speaking coach, Fia Fasbinder, The Moxie Institute provides executives and professionals with the highest level speaker training to command any stage with confidence and clarity. Public speaking opportunities arise constantly. Whether in large auditoriums, small boardrooms or 1:1 interviews, top performers are expected to share insight into their process, ideas and success. Yet many of these successful and dynamic leaders feel unprepared or underwhelmed with their own speaking abilities. Even on ‘the big red stage’, presenters without professional TED Talk coaching struggle to clearly communicate dense information to audiences or present in a persuasive and memorable fashion.


Above all else, we honor our clients and customers collectively referred to as our tribe. For without you, there would be no us. We are fiercely committed to elevating humanity through business.


The art of onstage performance is a learned skill, and the diverse Moxie Institute team helps speakers in need of a strong foundation, a few finishing touches, or something in between. Founder Fia Fasbinder’s unique blend of on-stage and classroom experience enables the Moxie Institute to effectively teach businesspeople to tell stories in their own voices and make information memorable. A great story pulls everything together, and we teach burgeoning

leaders to bring data to life through leaders to bring data to life through effective storytelling and delivery. Benefit from the training of actors, key performing arts skills, and innovations in neuroscience to deliver an engaging and powerful talk. You’ll work with a dedicated public speaking coach to master our proven methodology and connect with your audience, convey a message with clarity and conviction, and step on stage with confidence.
