Robin Cantrill-Fenwick has specialised in using data and digital systems to transform organisations across many sectors for more than two decades.
At the Association for Cultural Enterprises, Robin founded the Cultural Enterprises Academy, an online learning platform for people working in commercial revenue-generating functions across the culture, heritage, visitor attractions and arts sectors in the UK and Europe.
Robin was Deputy Executive Director of the mid-scale producing/presenting Mercury Theatre Colchester until July 2018, leading strategies which increased organisational turnover by one third in two years, with greatly increased profitability. He led the creation of a successful ticket sales agency, Experience Tickets, which provided Box Office services to clients including English Touring Opera and Invitation to View, as well as literary festivals, schools, and local authorities.
As a freelance consultant and strategist, Robin’s clients included Northern Stage, Spitalfields Music, and the Sunderland Music, Arts and Culture Trust. He is a proud trustee of Newcastle’s Live Theatre.
Prior to his career in the arts and heritage, Robin led digital transformation projects for organisations including the National Trust, The Royal Society, and the University of Westminster.
