Sebastian Coe’s experience spans sport, business and politics. Having set 12 world records during his career, the two time Olympic Gold medallist retired from competitive athletics in 1990. He went on to become a Conservative MP and Parliamentary Private Secretary to the then leader of the Tories, William Hague. More recently, Lord Coe led the winning bid for the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics and is now Chairman of the London Organising Committee for 2012.

Sebastian’s business book, The Winning Mind (working title), was published by Headline in 2009. His memoir, Running My Life was be published by Hodder to coincide with the Olympics and its aftermath.
