  • Success Kills: Rasmus Ankersen has studied the consequences of success: complacency, arrogance and resistance to change, and shows individuals and organizations how to navigate these pitfalls.
  • “The High Performance Anthropologist” Ankersen has “lived” his research and trained with some of the best athletes on the planet, documenting the habits needed for world-class performance.

When complacency, arrogance and resistance to change become pervasive and unwanted by-products of successful individuals and organizations, who can they turn to? Rasmus Ankersen - entrepreneur, bestselling author, trusted advisor to businesses and athletes around the world and speaker on creating and sustaining high performance cultures.

Over the past few years, Ankersen has been hired to share his research on high performance cultures, speaking to global brands like LEGO, Google, Boston Consulting Group, IKEA, Rotman Business School, Nasdaq, Ernst & Young and many more.

A former football player, Ankersen, a.k.a. “The High Performance Anthropologist,” carved himself a unique niche in the worlds of coaching and performance improvement by living his research to the full; training with the world's fastest sprinters in Jamaica, playing football with the aspiring talents of the Brazilian favelas, which produce the most talented players on Earth, and following the female golfers of Korea to investigate how they have managed to overwhelm the international golfing world.

The author of several bestselling books, Rasmus Ankersen’s The Gold Mine Effect, examined the secrets of high performance, making him the only expert on the subject who has literally lived and trained with some of the best athletes on the planet. His latest book, Hunger in Paradise details the negative aspects of high achievement when complacency, arrogance and resistance to change, often follow as a shadow of success. Ankersen studied how top companies can stay successful, and create a sense of urgency or “hunger in paradise.”

Rasmus uses the knowledge he has gained from his research to show companies, organizations and teams how they too can assume the mental habits necessary for world-class performance. He takes down our fundamental ingrained beliefs and replaces them with winning strategies that have been proven to work in the real world.

Ankersen is also the Chairman of FC Midtjylland, champions of the Danish Football League, and holds the position of Co-Director of Football at the English club Brentford FC. Both are known as some of Europe’s most innovative football clubs, especially recognized for their use of big data to drive decision making.

TESTIMONIALS

"Rasmus is an inspiration for anyone wishing to deliver high performance. His work and ideas are just fascinating and have not only challenged me, but also helped improve the quality of my daily training"
Tom Kristensen, the only person to win the 24 hours at Le Mans eight times

"As our personal coach Rasmus has been a massive inspiration. Especially his methods and ideas about how to make process goals measurable, how to adjust the pressure level from within and how to move the limit for what we think is possible have done a major difference for us. Rasmus has made us understand what attitude and mental strength are really about."
Bjorn Bitsch & Ashli Willamson, Double World Ten Dance Champions

Peter Demchenkov, General Manager, Alidi Group (named as a entrepreneur of the year in Russia)

“Sometimes you get excited about a book before you start reading it. With The Gold Mine Effect you get excited AFTER you read the book because it′s content stirs the mind and motivates you to take action. Reading The Gold Mine Effect is a life changing experiences.”
Austin Curtis, Professional Golf Coach UK93

PROGRAMS

As a keynote speaker and global business advisor, Rasmus Ankersen not only talks the talk, but walks the walk.

Having spent years travelling the world and immersing himself in cultures that produce the highest performers, he uses his research and experience to help organizations recognize hidden talent, reduce complacency and develop game-changing performance cultures of their own.

His provocative and entertaining keynote presentations upend commonly held beliefs and redefine what is possible. He challenges organizations to recalibrate conventional recruiting standards to recognize the high-potential candidates in their midst.

He also shows successful companies how to stave off the silent killers of progress – stagnancy, complacency, arrogance and resistance to change - and create a sense of urgency, while cultivating a culture of high performance.

Rasmus Ankersen is a trusted advisor to influential businesses, teams and individuals around the world. Unconventional but revolutionary, he challenges organizations to re-think how they identify, grow and ignite talent. Rasmus is well known for providing advice that is down to earth and relevant and that takes into account the real-world complexities. He specialises in:

  • Developing effective recruitment systems, which improve your "hit rate" dramatically – and find the talent you never thought existed
  • Identifying and strengthening high performance patterns in teams and individuals
  • Developing winning cultures that live for real and not only on an impotent "mission statement poster" in the reception
  • Killing complacency and replacing it with a true sense of urgency

BEST-SELLING BOOKS

The Gold Mine Effect: Crack the Secrets of High Performance
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 to produce most of the world′s best sprinters? What is the secret behind Brazil′s mass production of soccer super stars? In The Gold Mine Effect Ankersen presents his surprising conclusions in seven lessons on how anyone - or any business, organisation or team - can defy the many misconceptions of high performance and learn to build their own gold mine of real talent.
