Robin Wilson has been the principle of the independent sports design consultancy Robin Wilson Consulting since 2003. It has a close association with Judith Wilson Consulting, an established and successful consultancy providing innovative tailor made packages to schools, Local Authorities and Health Authorities. The two consultancies operate with a shared ethos and support / research capabilities.

With extensive experience in both pre- application advice and assessments of a wide range of Lottery funded projects, Robin is particularly committed to the provision of evidence based, high quality briefing, design and procurement advice at the early part of new projects to help ensure success. The working association and his wider network provides an excellent platform for further multi-disciplinary working and to develop his particular interest in maximising the cross sector benefits of sport and leisure.
