By now, I am sure most of our readers and past SEO student Graduates are very familiar with the extraordinary work of our dear friend and colleague the Late Michael Marshall.

Michael was one of the most profound educators in the areas of SEO, artificial intelligence, Natural Language Processing, Semantics, Philosophy and computer programming, to name just a few.

Away back in 2005, Michael was already introducing us all to the power of Themes in one of his very first extraordinary tool set creations called “Theme Master.”

Back then, Michael would travel with us to all of our early advanced SEO Workshops where he would teach his very freshest insights in cities like Orlando, Florida, San Antonio Texas,  Denver Colorado, Las Vegas Nevada, Boston, Toronto Ontario, Vancouver BC and eventually, he officially joined the Search Engine Academy to conduct teaching in the State of North Carolina.

But Michael also often presented as guest speaker at other more traditional conferences such as SMX, Pubcon, The System Seminar and Search Engine Strategies for example.

Michael was so much more special than I can ever put into words. He had extraordinary skills as an SEO practioner, but he cared about our students progress, so very much.

Michael was instrumental in helping us develop and deliver the very first “Ultra-Advanced SEO Symposiums” in 2006 and 2007.

It is difficult to try and describe all of Mike’s gifts in the area of teaching and information delivery. He had this amazing way of delivering information which was “easy to understand” and yet his delivery style ensured that every participant was fast engaged and listening carefully to every word.

Michael also joined the SEA Education Committee and took part with the other members, in always making sure we had the very freshest insights on the agenda.

Michael contributed more in the Advanced SEO agenda than any other single person and he made sure all of us educators had the latest and greatest information ever.  Plus he always made sure that Search Engine Academy students were the very first, to have his latest amazing tools, even before they went public.

Then in August of 2014, the unthinkable happened! 

We lost Michael Marshall to a tragic and an unexpected heart attack that shook all of us up and left behind, were Michael’s family – a dear wife and his 4 children with no Dad.

He was only 47 years old and only days away from turning 48.

FLASH UPDATE: The reason I am writing to you today, is to tell you about a very special event that is coming this Fall, thanks to another marketer that Michael knew well, Mr. Ken McCarthy of The System Seminar.

which will be conducted this Fall as a benefit and fund raiser with 100% of the proceeds that will go to support Michael’s wife and family.
