Rasmus Ankersen Speaker Biography


Rasmus Ankersen, alias The High Performance Anthropologist, is the only speaker in the world to have literally lived and trained with the best athletes on earth. For six months he travelled the globe, to live with the fastest people on earth in Jamaica, to train with the boys of the Brazilian favelas, the infamous shanty towns that produce the world’s best football players and to discover how Korea’s female golf machines have taken the world by storm, achieving massive domination of the international golf scene.

Rasmus Ankersen is a bestselling author, entrepreneur, speaker on performance development and a trusted advisor to businesses and athletes around the world. Now back in London, Rasmus is teaching companies, organisations and teams how to adopt the mindset and the kind of habits which produce World Class performance. With his powerful, refreshing style Rasmus challenges our most fundamental beliefs about success, leaving us with new, effective strategies, which he knows will work. The High Performance Anthropologist walks the talk.

In 2012 Rasmus published The Gold Mine Effect, in which he explores how some countries and cities develop a disproportionate amount of top talent. In 2016 Rasmus published Hunger in Paradise: a book about how successful organisations can remain successful by eliminating complacency.

Rasmus pumps winner’s DNA into the blood of his audiences, and his primary principle is: CUT THE CRAP! No empty theories or clichés. He never leaves his audiences unmoved! He may inspire, shock, disturb or even blow them away. But indifferent – never!

Rasmus is also the chairman of FC Midtjylland, his childhood football club in Denmark, and a director of the English Club Brentford FC. Both are known as some of the world’s most innovative football clubs, especially recognised for their use of big data to drive decision-making.

Over the past few years, Rasmus has been hired to share his research on high-performance cultures by global brands like LEGO, Google, Boston Consulting Group, IKEA, Google, Facebook, Hitachi, Roche, Ernst & Young and many more.

THE GOLD MINE EFFECT

Why are 137 of the worlds 500 best female golfers from South Korea? How did one athletic club in Kingston, Jamaica, succeed to produce most of the world’s best sprinters? What is the reason that the world’s best marathon runners grew up in the same village in Ethiopia? What is the secret behind Brazils mass production of soccer super stars? How has one village with 500 inhabitants in Sweden managed to produce the best skiers in history?

Rasmus Ankersen, a performance specialist, quit his job, spent his last pennies booking flight tickets and for six intense months travelled the world and literally trained and lived with the world's best athletes and their coaches in these six gold mines of talent. In this speak Rasmus presents his surprising conclusions on how any business, organization or team can learn to dramatically improve their ability to identify, grow and motivate talent by understanding the secrets of the gold mines.

You will learn:

How to spot the talent that the competition overlook
The difference between “talent that shouts” and talent that whispers”
Why breakthroughs often come from outsiders, not from insiders
How practice and persistence beat IQ and raw talent
Why a performance environment should never be too comfortable

HUNGER IN PARADISE

While organizations talk a lot about how to achieve success, they talk way too little about the consequences of success. About the complacency, arrogance and resistance to change, which often follow as a shadow of success. Success often produces complacency. It happens to individuals, companies and nations.

For the past two years, Rasmus Ankersen has studied how successful companies can stay successful, and in this speech he will share his answers to questions like:

How do you stay humble when the company cashes in record profits?

How do you provide people with the feeling that they are standing on a burning platform when there are no flames in sight?

Or put it in another way: How do you create hunger in paradise?
