How to Create Hunger in Paradise

While organisations 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?

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 in producing 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? And how has one village with 500 inhabitants in Sweden managed to produce the best skiers in history?

Rasmus Ankersen decided to travel the world to explore why small, rural places like these are able to produce one world class performer after another. For six intense months he literally trained and lived with the world’s best athletes and their coaches. In this speech Rasmus presents his surprising conclusions on how any business, organization or team can learn to create a true high performance culture by adopting the secrets of the gold mines.

“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 key note speakers."
