MOXiE Talks: Give Your Words The Chance To Change The World

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. And your words are a workshop away from joining their ranks.

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.


“Thank you for a great day, Fia! The team was really energized and excited to use their new found public speaking tools and tactics. We’re grateful for your insight about performance anxiety and for teaching us that we’re not the “only ones” who get stage fright.”

Stephen Bruno, Vice President of
Global Creative Marketing, Netflix

“Another successful Speaker Training with your participation! Once again you wowed the group! Many thanks!”

Dr. Brian Rosenblatt
Optometric Physician at Rosenblatt Family Eye Care Associates

“I am so thankful for your help. I have received so many compliments on my speech, it felt unbelievable! This would not be possible without your amazing coaching! One of my mentors actually tweeted my presentation! What a huge compliment! Because of you, I now look at speeches in completely new ways. I look for ideas. I search for what perception has been changed after the speech. I notice the storytelling techniques. I even watch great speeches being delivered and, most times, I wish the speakers could have taken your course! This has been one of the best courses I have taken. I look forward to collaborating with you again. Working with you has been a transformative experience.”

Amy Yang, General Manager
at Coca Cola

“I highly recommend Fia Fasbinder and the work she does. The City re-introduced management academies so as to better prepare tomorrow’s leaders of our organization and Fia’s skills are part of our program. Without question, her assistance on presentation skills is a MUST HAVE.”

Scott Chadwick, Chief Operating Officer
at City of San Diego

“Senior level network engineers and their leaders had a blast during Fia’s Presentation Skills Workshop. They practiced things often forgotten in the age of presentations driven by PowerPoint. They learned the art of preparation and relaxation, vocalizing from the diaphragm, and effective articulation. They learned and laughed at the same time. I too was preparing for a public speech in front of a large audience, and Fia’s workshop was most timely. I utilized all the skills practiced during the presentation and knocked it out of the park!”

Carol Stone, Sr. Leadership Development Consultant
at T-Mobile

“Fia is an outstanding speaker coach. She worked with me on my recent TEDx talk, and I learned a huge amount. I have given hundreds of presentations in both academic and business venues, and was surprised at how much more there was to learn. She gave me a new understanding of how to engage the audience even more. Fia is also a joy to work with. She is friendly and supportive, and always put me right at ease. I can’t say enough.”

Marian Bartlett, Research Scientist
at Apple

“The speech went fantastic! Deloitte was happy, and I had several people come talk to me afterward about how much they connected to it. I truly appreciate all of your creativity and quick thinking. It was a pleasure to work with you all!”

Gretchen Bladek,
Google Fiber, Curriculum

“Moxie, you’re amazing and we are so thankful for your team’s time and talent helping us prepare. Our speakers are so prepared, poised and polished for our conference…and we are so thankful. In fact, our CMO’s sessions are so AMAZING that his sessions are literally overflowing with people sitting in the aisle! Thanks to your coaching. We can’t thank you enough!”

Elyssa Lamoureux
Vice President Advisor Experience, Cetera Financial Group, Inc.
