Sencer is as knowledgeable as anyone I have ever met when it comes to the IB DP program. He was instrumental, last year, in developing our IB program from 1 student to 30 students! He has a thorough understanding of the IB process and how to make it work. I thought I knew a lot about IB until I worked with him.
Also, Sencer is an ideal team player. With Sencer on the team, we had a very effective administration team. He spent long hours each and every day on his assigned duties and always performed them excellently.
I look forward to the time I can work with him again

Mr Sencer Donmez builds an energizing working environment. I have a very good impression when joining his TOK classes those enrich me a brand new approach and pedagogic techniques in teaching Theory of Knowledge.
Personally, I learn a lot of new things from him about teaching, collaborating and designing learning environment for IB Diploma Programme. He is my first IB Coordinator in my teaching experience. With his broad experience in IB Education World he gives a special touch for any school who want to start or develop their education system with IB Diploma Programme.

It was a pleasure to work with Sencer in one of my Tours to Turkey. He had a very pleasant personality and deep knowledge of the locations we visited. I and everyone in the group were very impressed with his insight to the historical and natural heritage of the country. His command of English language made it very easy for our American friends to feel at ease with being in a foreign land. We all looked forward to be greeted with his happy smile in the mornings. He was a very young tour guide at that time but his youth did not get in the way of his ability to work with different personalities and ages. I would love to work with him again in a project. He will be an asset to any team with his passion for the work he is doing and never ending desire to improve himself. Sencer would be the ideal person to carry a project to successful completion. I recommend him highly for any position he desires to work for.
“I have known Sencer for several years following our introduction as fellow IB Diploma Program coordinators at our resepctive schools in Turkey. From the start, I was, and remain so, impressed by Sencer’s professional and even personal committment to excellence and realistic achievement in his capacity in the IB not only in his school but in its advancement and Turkey and beyond.
I appreciate his expertise, practicality, and pragmatic approach to his tasks and more so his reliability and readiness to assist and proıvide guidance to his peers and community. And above that, he is a really decent guy!

At the time, he was the right hand of the President of the school and was able to address all academic questions posed during the due diligence process in the context of financing the institution.
In addition to his professionalism, what I appreciated in him was his discipline, openness, conviviality and most importantly, his people’s skills. I highly recommend him as a professional.” June 3, 2011

I had the pleasure of personally meeting Sencer during his visit to the school «Istochnik» in Ulyanovsk, Russia, as an IB Diploma Programme consultant.
I regard Sencer as an experienced professional in international education and particularly in the IB system.
He has been a great connection during the prior e-mail communication being a remote aide capable of giving accurate and precise explanations and counsel. Sencer possesses leadership and interpersonal skills that dramatically improved the way the students and faculty and he communicated during his visit. Sencer is a delight to deal with because his pleasant and positive attitude can make nearly any work seem fun and interesting. (November 2013)

“Sencer is the administrator who lifted up the IB program when it was just about to end (at Tarsus American College). He is not at all a standart person (in the positive way).
The way he looks at, solve and analize issues is above standarts. The one and a half year I worked together with him as a team member, has been a great pleasure for me. I have always trusted him.Because he is a person you can count on. Most of the times when I was leaving my office, I would see his light on, in his office. Working and trying to find new things, better things for the school.
To me, he is the best IB expert in Turkey.

“Sencer is like a roket locked to its target. He is an outstanding pedagogical leader, a visionary coach and a trustworthy and quality driven professional. He has his own principles and has manages to stick to them. It was Sencer’s strong leadership which made his school (then) an IB recognized world school.
He worked there with endless affords and altruism for more than 10 years. We do not see this often in the private sector.
Over the years he improved himself a lot and made his school improve too.
Sencer is a truly intellectual and empathic person. Talented. He always finds time to listen to his students, teachers, parents. He manages to inspire his students. To my opinion this is mostly because he has sincere concern for his students and for their future too.”July 18, 2012
