Mark was my UX mentor in 2019, since then I have had a few job opportunities in the industry and have really settled in. A lot of his practices are very beneficial and can be seen being used on a day-to-day basis in the real work field. I couldn't be more thankful for his patience and teachings that have helped shaped me to the product designer I am toady. Thanks Mark!

Mark was my mentor for a UX Design course I took through Springboard. He was very helpful and I felt like I learned a lot; he’s also very easy to work with and has great communication skills.

It's been great working with the team here on a lot of different projects including training for corporate teams, early stage startups and guest events to our global community for early stage tech founders. They have a great way of working with their different audiences and I personally always come away learning something new so I would highly recommend getting in touch with the team.

Mark is an honest, experienced, and human UX designer. He has helped me gain the knowledge that only comes from years of experience doing UX with real clients - the things that many courses or books often miss. Believing that UX is ever-growing, Mark will never claim himself to be the UX expert; however, his knowledge around the digital world is well worth learning under. Thank you, Mark!

The support and mentoring I received from Mark was second to none, I now feel more confident to approach complex UX issues and provide a better experience for the users of my own site and those of my clients. Couldn't recommend UX Institute highly enough, a fantastic deep learning experience delivered in such a relaxed and well-structured manner.
