After a few years in the energy sector, Robin caught the bug for public-sector consulting after getting involved with a national energy infrastructure project. He loved working on something that made a real difference to citizens and businesses across the country – and he’s never looked back. He decided to move into public-sector work fully. And he helped set up Baringa’s government practice, which has since grown substantially and now serves a large range of government clients.
Robin particularly enjoys leading big teams on large, complex, multi-year delivery and transformation programmes involving new technology, process redesign and change management. His highlights include a national infrastructure project for a government department, setting up a large programme for the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) during the pandemic, and acting as a commercial partner for HM Revenue & Customs as it ran Europe’s largest IT procurement exercise. He’s also really excited about his new projects working on the electric vehicle charging point rollout as well as new technology and regulation to remotely identify drones.
Robin values his clients’ trust, and he very much sees clients’ success as his own. That’s why he’s always eager to bring the right stewardship, guidance and assistance required to deliver projects to a high standard. At the same time, he works hard to support his colleagues’ professional development and foster a collaborative working environment. For instance, as our government practice expanded rapidly, he was careful to ensure the team flourished from both a commercial and cultural perspective.
Outside work, Robin enjoys spending time with his young family. He also loves cooking – particularly French food. In another life, he’d be a chef. He takes the same approach to both cooking and consulting work – striving to execute complex steps flawlessly and taking pride in the results.
