Fear and public speaking anxiety are part of human nature. The more you try to fight them or ignore them, the stronger they become. If you have ever been told to “just calm down”, “do it anyway”, or “imagine them in their underwear” then you have been given horrible advice. We want to be honest from the start—you will always feel fear and speech anxiety.
And that’s ok, you’re not alone. In fact, it’s normal! Over 70% of the population say they suffer from glossophobia: the fear of public speaking. That’s where Moxie comes in. Our coaches—and even our CEO Fia Fasbinder—were once terrified of public speaking. We know how you feel, we’ve been there, which is why we’re thrilled to use our experience to help others just like you.
Think of the most confident and impressive speaker you ever heard. Here’s a secret, they feel anxiety before going on stage—every professional speaker does. You see, overcoming your public speaking fear isn’t about magically ridding yourself of speaking anxiety forever. Instead, you learn how to feel it. You learn techniques to settle the fear down so that you can manage it in a healthy way.
Our course is designed to be a place you can truly let go and be yourself. Where you can feel supported and get the encouragement you need to no longer hold yourself back. We’ll give you the same techniques we teach TEDx speakers, high-performing executives, and famous keynoters to help them prepare for any big event. As Fia says, “It’s not about learning to be fearless, but fear less.”

A lot of our fear of public speaking comes from bad habits. Habits of negative self-talk, imagining worst-case scenarios, and not feeling confident in ourselves. This presentation skills training will help you unlearn them all and build a strong foundation for your self-esteem and courage. We have taught people with glossophobia, who were once afraid of making eye-contact with colleagues, step confidently onto a stage facing thousands. To do this for yourself doesn’t take any special talent, just good old fashioned patience and hard work. If you’re starting to feel excited at conquering your public speaking fear and the idea of the speaker you could become, you’re ready.
Even great performers had to learn to overcome their fear of speaking. So we teach the same techniques used by award-winning actors to control their anxiety and convey powerful emotions with poise and control. From vocal warm ups and breathing techniques to confident body language—you will foster an executive presence that will last a lifetime.
Our training accelerates your learning while also explaining why the skills we teach are so effective. Your long-term success requires building new and effective habits.
