In Detail

Rasmus' desire to understand the code that unlocks World Class performance led him to be head coach of the first soccer academy in Scandinavia, which has produced several top international players. In 2010 he spent six months travelling around the world to live and train with the best athletes and coaches on the globe. In 2016 Rasmus published Hunger in Paradise, the result of five years of research. Answering some of the toughest but most relevant management questions of today: how do you keep complacency out of the building when you are cashing in record profits? How do you act with urgency when there seems to be no obvious burning platform in sight: how do you create Hunger in Paradise.


Rasmus Ankersen challenges organisations to re-think how they identify, grow and ignite talent, how they fight the complacency that comes with success and how they can stay ahead in the fast changing world. He is well known for providing advice that is down to earth and relevant that takes into account the real-world complexities.
