“Michael spoke to my company a few weeks ago on the topic of mobile marketing and identity & personal information management. It was a longer engagement, lasting a few hours, but I could have listened for several more. Michael offered really engaging content in a format that was easily digestible. I find myself referring to his workshop often and am using it daily as a resource for our marketing.”

The Identity Nexus: The Future of Consumer Personal Information

For the last decade, marketers have become experts in using data to create a rich set of products, services and experiences for consumers. People are now starting to wake up and say stop. Globally, people are interested in protecting their privacy, mitigating harms and showing an interest in controlling and managing their identity and personal information. The implications of this new interest by consumers will have a profound effect on the future of marketing. In this session, Michael Becker will explain the Identity Nexus which is the equilibrium that frames the relationship between consumers, companies, and government. It is by understanding the Identity Nexus that businesses and marketers will be able to thrive as attitudes and behaviors change regarding personal information and privacy.

  • Insights into consumers’ attitudes about identity and personal information based on the 5th annual MEF trust study
  • Explanation of the actions people are beginning to take to protect and manage their personal information
  • What the Identity Nexus is and its importance for businesses and marketers
  • Recommendations for marketers and martech vendors to prepare for these changing consumer attitudes and how to ultimately thrive
