Taryn Mead, PhD


As an researcher, lecturer, practitioner and consultant, I have been engaging with companies large and small to envision a future driven by innovative and creative organizational solutions to sustainability challenges and innovation inspired by natural systems. With more than fifteen years of experience in private sector sustainability and innovation, the greatest and most rewarding challenges of my career exist where this vision meets the marketplace.  In my free time, I enjoy chasing my toddler down mountain trails, collaborating with micro-organisms to create culinary treats, and geeking out on nerdy nature facts.


 "We love working with Taryn…she brings amazing insight, and working knowledge of Nature's Genius, and an energy that lights up the room. We have had the great privilege of traveling around the globe for over 6 years together, working on some of the most challenging projects on the planet. Taryn always brings calm to complexity…and somehow sees things right there in front of me…that I can't…and I love that! I hope you get the chance to work with her too…you will be very happy!'  -Chip Crawford, Senior Principal
