TRUSTED BY THE WORLD'S BEST
INTO WORLD-CLASS PERFORMERS
Our Mission: Get You The Loudest Applause Possible
There is nothing more beautiful than seeing someone, who was once afraid of the spotlight and sharing their thoughts, step in front of thousands of people with exhilarating confidence and inspire them with their message—this is why the Moxie Institute exists.
What began as a fierce challenge against the status quo of boring presentations and monotonous speakers. Our phenomenal founder and CEO Fia Fasbinder, alongside our magnetic president Gregg Fasbinder, have since impacted people and businesses all over the world with their powerful vision that combines the performing arts with proven neuroscience.
OUR VALUES & ETHOS
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 MOXIE TEAM
As a professionally trained actor from NYU and theatrical instructor, Fia discovered that the techniques used by top performers—such as diaphragmatic breathing, projection, nonverbal communication, visualization—perfectly translated to the corporate world of presentations and events. Drawing from her Masters in Adult Education, Fia fused practical methods with excitement and experiential learning into every Moxie workshop and coaching session—now a core pillar of our services.
And having helped scale billion-dollar businesses—like Alcon Labs and Novartis Pharmaceuticals—as an award-winning senior leader, Gregg knew what it took to ensure every ambitious professional and global organization that worked with Moxie gained the skills to surpass their limits—and their competition. From strategic leadership to empowering teams, Gregg ensures our services give you the edge to improve performance and drive results.
We’ve trained everyone from accomplished CEOs, entrepreneurs, and TED speakers to acclaimed athletes, media personalities, and ambitious professionals. Each time witnessing incredible moments of insight, personal discovery, and breathtaking results.
No matter who you are, Moxie Institute will put you on a transformational, life-changing path that you never thought possible.
We believe in you—truly.
Are you ready to step into your greatness?
