Dr. Mark Sinclair
Founder and Managing Director
Dr. Mark Sinclair established Mentor Education in 2003 with a strong desire to provide high levels of student satisfaction, quality training and assessment materials, technology enabled learning, and skill-based job-ready learning outcomes.
This 'student focus' is a direct result of Mark's doctoral studies in e-commerce, financial services & health corporate advisory experience with AT Kearney and KPMG, and his passion for learning and teaching developed teaching in the MBA program at RMIT University.
