The Gold Mine Effect

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 reason that the world’s best marathon runners grew
up in the same village in Ethiopia? What is the secret behind Brazil’s mass production of soccer superstars? How has one village with 500 inhabitants in Sweden managed to produce the best skiers in history?

In this speech, 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.

Audience takeaways:

  • How to spot the talent that the competition overlooks.
  • 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 the 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. Rasmus Ankersen has studied how successful companies can stay successful, and in this speech, he will share his answers to questions.

Audience takeaways:

  • 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 is no flames insight?
  • Or put it in another way: How do you create hunger in paradise?
