Michael Becker has a remarkable ability to assess a situation and identify where the opportunities are. Initiatives he is involved with have a ‘Becker Effect’ with a focus on meaningful progress for immediate wins and long term success. He is thorough in considering the existing complexities and forward-thinking about adaptions needed for a changing world (especially in relation to personal data). Conversations are never dull due to his vast knowledge, passion, and wit. You’ll often be left learning something new, a purposeful direction, and motivated to take things to the next level. Laure Carter, Digital & Brand Marketing, Communications, Digital Marketing Manager, North America, December 2020
As people take more control of their personal data and its true value is appreciated, companies will need to adjust customer interactions. Michael has a firm grasp of this emerging landscape and has the ability to explain it to diverse audiences with great energy in plain language. We were so pleased to have him present at two conferences for our association. Both times he left attendees keenly aware of the most pressing issues they needed to address and with the information, resources, and advice to do just that. Art Flanagan, Vice President, Communications, Insights Association, December 2020

Mr. Michael is a perfect instructor. I benefited a lot from his Lynda.com Mobile Marketing Fundamentals course. The course contained great illustrations and was delivered in a practical manner. I am sure this course would be great for every digital marketer. I am looking for more publications from Mr. Michael and I am grateful that he is so open with sharing his knowledge and expertise with others. Mohamed Samir
I have known Michael Becker for over 10 years, during which time I have seen him develop and execute one of the most innovative and forward-thinking companies in the mobile space. Michael is a true rainmaker with the ability to craft and deploy creative solutions; his innate business sense and gregarious personality allow him to differentiate his offerings from competitors and standout in a crowded market. Vince Canobbio
Michael Becker is one of the most insightful professors that I have encountered. His National University Advanced Mobile Marketing Strategy course was challenging. It raised my personal awareness of mobile. It presented me with an entirely new vocabulary that I did not even know existed. In particular, appreciated how he incorporated his professional experience and personal opinions throughout the course. I see, now, that marketers do not need a mobile strategy, rather their strategy needs mobile. Furthermore, this course introduced me to a new concept, the Personal Data Economy. It helped me recognize that people can and should be empowered to control their personal information, to manage their digital sovereignty. Change is coming, we should all start preparing ourselves now. Joe Louis Burroughs II
