"The business world owes Rasmus much gratitude."— Jørgen Vig Knudstorp, CEO, The Lego Group
How can we identify and develop business talent? Ex-professional footballer and high performance anthropologist Rasmus Akersen quit his job and traveled the world for six months, visiting "gold mines" of talent; living and training with the planet's best athletes in an attempt to answer this question and adapt his findings into a revolutionary business context.
Rasmus Ankersen—born in 1983—is an author and motivational speaker who published his first book, the bestseller The DNA of a Winner, at twenty-two years old.

Rasmus Ankersen is a bestselling author, a motivational speaker on performance development and a trusted advisor to businesses and athletes around the world. He wrote his first book, The DNA of a Winner, at age 22. A year later he published his second, Leader DNA, which has been the bestselling leadership book in Denmark for the last five years. In his home country Rasmus has also won a Belingske Business Magazine award, being named one of the three biggest business talents in Denmark, and the Danish prime minister recently invited him to contribute a chapter to his new book The Danish Dream.Review:
'After reading The Gold Mine Effect I felt compelled to track Rasmus Ankersen down ... Fascinating man with a real insight into High Performance both for individuals and teams that can be applied to business and sport ... a great read and a fascinating insight into performance.' -- Sir Clive Woodward Ankersen provides a left-field take on high performance, with much food for thought. It's wacky, but it works. -- Emma De Vita, Management Today 'This is a must-read for any athlete or sportsperson looking to reach for the stars.' -- Athletics Weekly 'Rasmus Ankersen's thought-provoking book 'The Gold Mine Effect' I believe will become a timeless classic in the ever evolving understanding of ... the notion of talent. Parts of the book defy long-standing traditions around talent development but his intelligent use of real life experiences in and outside of sport should force anyone to ask: are we really doing everything it takes to produce the next generation of world talent?' -- Mike Forde, Executive Director, Chelsea Football Club
