Richard J Coleman

Principal Research Fellow

Summary

Richard specialises in evaluations of major events particularly linked to economic and social impacts. Over the last two decades, he has project managed and delivered impact evaluations of some of the foremost sporting events held in the UK (Wimbledon, The Open, Lord's Ashes Test, London Marathon, Ryder Cup, Henley Royal Regatta, Solheim Cup and Le Tour Grand Départ) using the eventIMPACTS framework and approved methodology, which he helped to devise and later update for UK Sport and partners. He has subsequently advised The International Association of Event Hosts (IAEH) and Association of Summer Olympic International Federations (ASOIF) on their monitoring and evaluation plans for major events.  He has 20 years of experience in devising robust yet cost effective research solutions for his clients, including sports councils, governing bodies as well as non-sport organisations from the leisure industry.

  • About

    Richard is a postgraduate from the University of Sheffield with an MSc in Sport and Recreation Management. He specialises in the evaluation of major events relative to their economic and broader impacts. He also manages much of SIRC's fieldwork and primary data collection.

    Richard and colleagues produced the Measuring Success series for UK Sport which was the precursor to the development of a national event evaluation framework and toolkit in 2009 (eventIMPACTS). Richard managed the development and delivery, and co-authored the content of eventIMPACTS. This resource helps organisers to measure the impacts associated with their events. Apart from economic impact, these include audience attendance plus social/media and environmental impacts. Richard and colleagues have refreshed elements of eventIMPACTS more recently.

    He has undertaken more than 100 event impact studies in the last two decades including some of the most iconic events in the UK over this period. These include:

    • Wimbledon (2 editions)
    • World Snooker (7 editions)
    • London Marathon (3 editions)
    • Tour de France Grand Départ
    • The Open (10 editions)
    • ATP World Tour Finals
    • Lord's Ashes Test
    • Women's Open Golf (2 editions)
    • Ryder Cup (2 editions)
    • Henley Royal Regatta
    • Solheim Cup 

    He has also used the eventIMPACTS approach for evaluations at arts events and festivals. Between 2010 and 2019 he examined more than 50 events held in the UK as part of UK Sport's London Prepares; Gold Event Series and #EveryRoadtoRio campaigns; which included detailed analyses of the European Eventing, UCI Women's Hockey World Cup; Track Cycling World Championships plus The Netball World Cup.

    Some of the evaluations for UK Sport considered the potential inspiration effects associated with spectator attendance at major events.  He has undertaken numerous projects examining sports participation and adherence at local and regional level, as well as major monitoring and evaluation projects for clients such as the ASA, Sport England, Sport NI and Natural England. During the COVID restrictions he has contributed to projects related to the impact of the pandemic on various sectors of the sport industry; notably golf.  He has extensive experience of devising cost effective research solutions (including online surveys) for a variety of clients. He is also a SROI trained practitioner.
