Double Olympic Gold medalist, Lord Coe is one of the world’s most decorated athletes. Following his retirement from athletics, he successfully led the bid and organising committee for the Olympic Games in London in 2012. His political and strategic expertise in guiding large organisations on the global stage, continues in his current role as President of World Athletics (formerly the IAAF).
His themes include leadership, collaboration, crisis management, building resilience, handling change and challenging the status quo. Lord Coe believes in creating a clear, strong vision for an organisation – a simple, transferable set of values which are adhered to at every moment and by every employee whatever their role. This vision, he contends, is key in times of change and turbulence.
