Associate trainer – Mark Robinson

Mark Robinson has over 15 years experience of the practical application of Lean process improvement. He is Managing Director of St Andrews Lean Consulting,  which until late in 2021 was a subsidiary company of the University of St Andrews. 

Mark has delivered Lean training, facilitated Lean process improvement events, and advised on the establishment of Lean programmes for clients from a range of sectors including charity, government, health, higher and further education, law, medical research, philanthropy, and retail.

His clients can be found around the globe in countries such as Australia, Ghana, Ireland, Malaysia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, the UK, and the USA.

Mark takes great satisfaction in transferring his Lean skills by delivering Lean training, and in working with teams of staff to help them dramatically improve what they had previously believed to be a problem process.
