Without a doubt, Colin Jackson is one of the greatest athletes that Great Britain has ever produced. Before retiring in 2003, Colin was an outdoor World Record holder for 13 years, and still holds the World Indoor 60m title. Bursting onto the scene, setting a European junior record of 13.44 in 1986, Colin ranked in the world top 10 for 16 years, and for the last 7 of his career, he was never out of the top 3.
During his long career he won 21 medals at major championships including three World, seven European and two Commonwealth titles and an Olympic silver medal.
Colin has been an integral part of the BBC Athletics coverage since the Athens Olympics, covering every major event, including the London 2012 Olympics. Other TV highlights include co-hosting the BBC1 live morning show Sunday Life, as well as dazzling us all with his dancing skills, on Strictly Come Dancing – he was thrilled to make it, by public vote, into the final.
More recently Colin has appeared on ITV1′s Dancing on Ice Goes Gold and the BBC’s 24 Hours in the Past and 2013 saw Colin launch Go Dad Run, his own mass participation 5K and 10K event for men and boys in aid of men’s health charities
Colin’s personable, yet professional approach, combined with his high profile, mean that he is in constant demand from the commercial sector, and in line with his on screen presentation, and commentary, Colin is a confident and charismatic conference/awards host, and a high-level motivational speaker.
Colin will be speaking on the main stage of the Introbiz Expo – get your tickets here.
