Please introduce yourself (who are you and what do you do in your life)

I´m Rasmus Krath, graduated KP in 2005 using my final exam to generate a business plan on how to live as a Professional Adventurer & Speaker in Denmark. Basically I´ve followed this plan and now live my life as a self-employed traveller and storyteller, giving talks around Denmark about my expeditions around the Globe. I travel to less visited parts of the world, shooting film and photos and back in DK I mount presentations using my material adding visual effects, sound effects, music (I play live instruments) and my skills from my former work as an actor. I believe that if you want to deliver your audience a strong message, you need to start entertain, fascinate and overwhelm with both beauty and horror to catch your spectators. Then when you really got their attention, you can start giving information, insights and background facts, building up their knowledge, so you in the end can deliver your message, that they can reflect on based on both their achieved interest and wisdom. Feel free to take a look at this small presentation of my work as a speaker – a new film teaser, I just had made: https://youtu.be/OnDwJLez5L8

 

Which team and when did you graduate? 

Team 9 in 2005. Actually started on Team 8, but took a years leave to travel during my studies.

 

What have you been doing since you graduated as a Kaospilot?

Building up my career – now passing 1500 talks and two films, one of them broadcasted on DR1/DR2 and in 25 countries – “A Journey into Piracy” about my meeting with Somali Pirates

 

What is important for you in your job?

I try to live my professional life grounded on “two legs”, one being my own curiosity for traveling and experiencing the world – cultures, peoples and politics, the other being continuously having and wanting to bring messages/content and do my best to move people´s perceptions on our world in the direction I believe in.

 

What major learnings would you point out from your experience that have shaped you as a leader? 

Believing that everything is possible and never settle for less – one of my great learnings from Kaospilot. And always search for solutions – also within the difficult challenges you may meet on your path. I like this old chinese saying: “When strong winds blow, some people build shelters, others build windmills”

 

What is your biggest source for inspiration right now?

Entering SoMe, haha. I´m right now planning to go “online” for real, working on building up my name on social media, something that I´ve never given attention up till now. I know that this sounds a bit backwards, but I´ve always been a bit reluctant to enter this field, but now I´ve changed my mind and will start a thorough campaign in 2023. Hopefully it will be both fun, exiting and rewarding. So please add/follow me on LinkedIn and see what will happen there over the next year: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rasmus-krath-a6487237

Besides that, I just got accepted at strongmind.dk – a top notch bureau for some of the best speakers in Denmark. I´m very exited about that – really inspired by the skills of the other speakers there 🙂

 

…just go follow your dream, was the united message from the staff. Thank you so much for that

 

What would would be an example of a learning or an experience from your time at Kaospilot that has been important to you?

For me Kaospilot was a three year long playground strengthening my believe in myself and that I should chose my own path in life setting the maximum goals possible and never, never, never give up on achieving them. And when I decided that path on my third year, I felt 100% support from the school – just go follow your dream, was the united message from the staff. Thank you so much for that!

 

What is a piece of advice that you would like to give future Kaospilot graduates? 

Don´t settle for less but be truthful to yourself and your abilities. Chose the life, that you´re made for – not someone else´s.
