Extreme Cooperation of Superorganisms: Four Lessons Humans Can Learn from Honey Bees

In this talk Peter takes you on a journey, sharing some of the most exciting, secret inner workings of honey bee colonies, answering questions, such as: How did bees evolve into a well-organized communicating superorganism?

How do bees form cohesive collaborative colonies, whose abilities go way beyond those of its members? How do honey bee colonies, made up of insects with tiny brains, debate and make complex and timely life-and-death decisions as a single unit? In conclusion, you will walk away with practical organizational best practices you can apply – all based on what our sweet friends teach us.
