Tigrilla Gardenia, Biomimicry Facilitator, Communication with the Plant World

We’re at a critical point in the story of the human species. The challenges we face require leaders and innovators who know how to create resilient, well-adapted solutions. The path forward must be generous to future generations of all life on earth. -Biomimicry 3.8

We tend to think of people as either technical or creative, scientific or artistic. Teachers, lectures, and facilitators are usually in a separate group all to themselves.

But there are those rare souls that bridge all these together to connect us to the best parts of ourselves and others. Tigrilla Gardenia is one of those souls.

Using her experience from the technology and business worlds—RealNetworks and Microsoft—and creative worlds —Infinite Connections and Cirque du Soleil—Tigrilla brings multidisciplinary experience to every session. Biomimicry, scientific research, and experiences in artistic, engineering, and spiritual contexts provide the base from which she guides teams to deliver nature-based concept designs for products, services, systems, and processes. With over 20 years of professional experience and over 12 teaching and training, she can help you and your team create a collaborative environment.

How does she do it? 

By tapping into plant intelligence and nature-inspired solutions, then add to that a little secret sauce, and there you have it!

Tigrilla asks the question, “How would nature solve your challenge?” then guides you through the techniques necessary to design the answers. Contact her to discuss your unique needs.

Collaborative Teams Inspired by Nature

Discover a natural framework to stimulate teamwork across boundaries

Your business is not performing. You have all the best people, so what is the problem?

Organizational structures and relationships that once encouraged competition, today create silos of mistrust. Modern business success requires transdisciplinary partnerships and agile organizations capable of finding solutions across domains. 

And you know who has been creating these types of systems for 3.8 billion years?


Living organisms have evolved strategies to continually work as a team to develop and adapt to changing conditions. Many of the challenges your business is facing have already been solved by the natural world. Looking to nature, we can find patterns to survive and thrive on Earth, sustaining a circular way of working together that encourages collaboration and creative problem solving. Biological design is resilient, adaptable, multifunctional, and regenerative. Who better to learn from?!

With Tigrilla Gardenia’s guidance, discover how to optimize organizational structures, build a cohesive team, and best use their talents by modeling your organization on the genius of nature. 

Tigrilla uses her love of speaking, analytical mind, communications expertise, and gamification experience to design cross-functional team development inspired by nature. Her background in plant intelligence, cognition, and neurobiology and working with nature-based systems such as biomimicry layers perfectly over her ample experience in corporate developing projects and structures from high-tech to the arts.

Give your team the original antidote to stress and lack of creativity: using a Circular Innovation Design Process rooted in practical and theoretical experience with the plant world and biomimicry, create a work environment that functions as efficiently and cohesively as a forest.
