About Mentor

Since 1993, Mentor has provided travel and meetings management consulting and planning services to clients in the pharmaceutical, medical, financial, legal, engineering, consumer products and high tech sectors. In 2005, Mentor established a pharmaceutical consulting division that continues to focus on Phase 2 and Phase 3 clinical trials, as well as KOL development within a number of therapeutic areas.

Mentor has developed a niche in supporting pharmaceutical and medical technology clients focused on Pulmonary Hypertension (PAH, CTEPH), Neurology (Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Schizophrenia, Dementia and Depression) and Infectious Diseases (HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis, C. difficile), but has also worked in a number of other therapeutic areas, including:

  • Hematology [Sickle Cell Disease]
  • Ophthalmology [Macular Degeneration, Uveitis]
  • Nephrology [Chronic Kidney Disease]
  • Gastroenterology [Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Ulcerative Colitis]
  • Oncology [Acute Myeloid Leukemia]

Mentor has built an outstanding reputation for integrity in dealing with clients and vendor partners, an unparalleled attention to detail, personalized “high-touch” service in all dealings, and innovative solutions that offer measurable results.

    …Expertise and Unique Insights…

    Mindy and the team at Mentor have provided expertise and unique insights that I have not seen from any other consultants in our work with clinical experts, advisory boards and highly influential opinion leaders. Their contribution goes well beyond supporting our efforts in building relationships and planning for clinical studies. They have enabled us to move faster, avoid pitfalls and build critical relationships with some of the most important clinical leaders in the world.

    …superb at discerning a client's wishes and needs prior to the client even knowing that they have the need…
    engaged in creating a perfect meeting, and to making sure it's perfect along the way…the execution that takes

    …In a Class By Itself

    Your [annual medical] symposium is simply in a class by itself. That applies to the quality of the science, the opportunities for interchange, the nicely balanced “fun” relief and the extraordinary faculty and on-site management. There simply is no comparable conference and it seems to keep getting better each year.
