Paul Becker’s indomitable spirit and triumph over Stage IV Multiple Myeloma (MM) is an inspiration. I first met Paul aboard an aircraft carrier during 2002 combat operations into Afghanistan. His demonstration of Teamwork, Tone and Tenacity during subsequent medical struggles sets the highest motivational standard for others to follow. I’m proud to be Paul’s friend and know he’s making a difference in our fight against MM.

Paul brought the house down as our Keynote at the September 2016 Rockstar Marketing Bootcamp attended by hundreds of successful entrepreneurs. The audience was spellbound during his “Teamwork, Tone, Tenacity” presentation, motivated to new levels of patriotism and purpose by his translation of military leadership principles to the civilian workplace, and inspired to tears by understanding how to triumph over adversity after hearing of his winning battle vs. bone marrow cancer. I’ve been speaking and hosting speakers for 20+ years and there’s never been one I’ve seen make a greater impact on an audience. I now invite Paul back to every one of my events where I can count on him delivering a tailored presentation that will improve the performance and lives of others.
