One of the highlights of 2017 for me was giving this keynote at the Innovate Barbados summit in Bridgetown. Just a fantastic venue with a wonderful audience. I think we were all inspired by nature this day!

TEEMING: How Superorganisms Work to Build Infinite Wealth in a Finite World (and you can too) launched in July, debuting at #1 in Ecology on Amazon, #6 in Environmental Economics, and #9 in Organizational Learning––unusual to hit the charts in Science AND Business categories, and when you read it, you'll see why!
I'm excited to announce that the long-awaited Kindle version is out, just in time for the holidays!
To celebrate, I'm offering a collection of digital freebies: a s a set of “bite-size biomimicry” cards from my Evolving Adaptive Organizations collection, and an executive summary infographic booklet.

Dr. Tamsin Woolley-Barker, Author & Evolutionary Biologist introduced us to the concept of "Biomimicry" - "an approach to innovation that seeks sustainable solutions to human challenges by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies.". Take a look.
Nov 16 Yeshua Adonai at Systemic Innovation and I had the great pleasure to work with Belgian company Nexxworks on their latest Silicon Valley Innovation Tours. Nexxworks brings executives from some of Northern Europe's most innovative companies––like BBNP Paribas––to the Bay Area, so they can see first hand what makes the valley so exciting. One of those things is Biomimicry! These teams had a blast, and so did we.
Each November, The Ellen MacArthur Foundation puts on the Disruptive Innovation Festival. It's an online affair, with hundreds of fantastic talks and videos and discussions. This year, I went out to Anza Borrego and made a video on collective intelligence––I think it's pretty comprehensive, and the landscapes are amazing. I camped out there and shot over two days (alone), and you can see that I started shooting on the second day before I had my coffee! Poor choice...I like it anyway. Enjoy!
Every year, the Biomimicry Institute hosts their Biomimicry Global Design Challenge, sponsored by the Ray C. Anderson Foundation. I have the great honor and pleasure of being one of the mentors to these exceptional teams from all over the world.
