Rasmus Ankersen has trained with the planet’s best athletes to translate their secrets of high performance into usable strategies for leaders and businesses. Known for his bestselling book The Goldmine Effect: Crack the Secrets of High Performance, he is also the author of Hunger in Paradise: The War Against Complacency, where he explains how to maintain and surpass the momentum needed to bring success.
Rasmus explains how to find talent you never thought existed; how to strengthen high performance patterns in teams and individuals; how to develop winning cultures; and how to create a sense of urgency to bring about world-class results.
Rasmus Ankersen is an experienced keynote speaker on the topic of talent and high-performance cultures. He has been hired to teach by well-known global brands like Facebook, Google, LEGO, Boston Consulting Group, Microsoft, Roche, Astra Zeneca, Coca-Cola, Cisco and many more.
Rasmus Ankersen quit his job, spent the last of his money on plane tickets, and for six intense months travelled the world living and training with the world’s best athletes and their coaches in an attempt to answer the following questions:
- Why have the world’s best middle-distance runners grown up in the same Ethiopian village?
- Why are 137 of the world’s 500 best female golfers from South Korea?
- How did one athletic club in Kingston, Jamaica, succeed in producing most of the world’s best sprinters?
- What is the secret behind Brazil’s mass production of soccer super stars?
The conclusions Ankersen came to will have an enormous impact, not only in the world of sport, but far beyond – in business, education, and parenting. In The Gold Mine Effect, Ankersen presents these conclusions in the eight Gold Mine concepts that will not only show you how to grow talent in yourself, but also how to spot and unlock it in others – whether you are a manager, a coach, a teacher, or a parent.
When companies become successful, they don’t just fight competitors, they fight themselves. Success can trigger a series of psychological problems that are often not recognised until it is too late – how do you defeat them?
Rasmus has consistently been rated as one of the best speakers to take the stage at Google events. Importantly, he was able to draw on a wide range of experiences and stories that resonated with a particularly diverse audience, which is often one of the most challenging aspects when searching for Inspirational keynote speakers. – Graeme Standing, Google UK
