Richard J Coleman

Principal Research Fellow


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.
