Edward Marinos

Edward Brooker

Professor

Ed is a Marketing Professor, who has taught courses in Marketing, Entrepreneurship, Business Ethics and Law, and Business Creativity and Innovation.  In each course, Ed blends in creative opportunities that allow students to find their own voice, to searching for solutions beyond the obvious right and wrong, black and white. This approach stems from Ed’s research into varying levels of innovation, and from others who urge creative, lateral thinking in postsecondary education.

He has extensive previous teaching experience at the University of Otago (Tourism Management), New Zealand, Niagara College (Tourism Management) and Conestoga College (Marketing).  Ed also operated an independent management consulting firm specializing in commercial outdoor recreation, which involved projects across Canada, the United States, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Taiwan.  

Ed’s research has been published in a variety of highly rated academic journals. He has presented a variety of workshops at various national and international industry conferences, including creativity in postsecondary education. Ed has authored four books emanating from his insights into marketing, entrepreneurship and international marketing.  He currently acts as a mentor to recent business graduates through FreshInsights Consutling, Burlington and is on a PhD advisory committee at the University of Guelph. 

Ed holds a PhD from Griffith University, Australia, a Master’s degree in Applied Environmental Studies (Waterloo), a Post Graduate Certificate in Tourism and Recreation Facility Management (Lakehead), a Bachelor of Environmental Studies (Geography) degree (Waterloo), a Forest Recreation Technology diploma (Sanford Fleming) and a Forest Technician diploma (Sanford Fleming). 

Ed has contributed to Sheridan’s new employee orientation process and is currently involved in other projects designed to capitalize on internal resources.
