Speaker: Colin Jackson CBE

Category: LOCAL EVENT

Meet Olympian athlete Colin Jackson CBE who will give us an invaluable insight into the many techniques he employed in becoming a world-beater which are relevant to business. You will also hear an update about the opportunities the Birmingham 2020 Commonwealth Games will bring from Birmingham City Council's finance chief, Counc. Tristan Chatfield.

Without doubt one of the greatest athletes that Great Britain has ever produced, Colin Jackson called time on his outstanding athletics career in front of an adoring home crowd at the World Indoor Championships in Birmingham in 2003. After more than a decade spent at the very pinnacle of his sport, it was a fitting end to a glittering career.

Colin will give an invaluable insight to the many techniques he employed in becoming a world-beater which are relevant to business.  

Striving for excellence, goal setting and focus, training and realism and setting achievable targets are among the many topics Colin will be discussing. 

We also welcome Birmingham City Council's finance chief, Counc. Tristan Chatfield who will give an overview of the opportunities the Birmingham 2020 Commonwealth Games will bring to the region.

Our thanks to sponsors:Hays

Speaker Details:

During a career in which he represented Great Britain and Wales, Colin won an Olympic silver medal, became world champion twice, World indoor champion once, went undefeated at the European Championships for 12 years and was a two-time Commonwealth champion. His world record of 12.91 seconds for the 110 m hurdles stood for over a decade and he remains the 60 m hurdles world record holder. Colin subsequently made a seamless transition to become an outstanding television sports presenter and commentator. In addition to presenting sports events, Colin has been a guest on many other TV shows, including dazzling audiences with his dancing skills on Strictly Come Dancing - thrilled to make it, by public vote, to the final.
