Speaker Carl Honore is a renowned author, broadcaster, and advocate for the Slow Movement. His TED Talks on the main stage have garnered millions of views, and he offers a TED Course titled How to Slow Down.
Carl also travels globally to deliver powerful keynote speeches that challenge the way we view time and tempo. His counterintuitive message is clear and transformative: to thrive in a fast-paced world, we must slow down.
In his first book, In Praise of Slow, Carl documents the global shift towards deceleration in various aspects of life, including work, food, and parenting. The Financial Times hailed it as “the Das Kapital of the Slow Movement.”
Carl’s second book, Under Pressure, explores how to raise and educate children in a fast-paced world. It was also recognized by Time as a “gospel of the Slow Parenting movement.”
In his third book, The Slow Fix, Carl examines how to tackle complex issues in various domains of life, including health, relationships, business, and politics, without resorting to superficial, short-term solutions.
Carl’s latest book, Bolder: Making The Most Of Our Longer Lives, challenges ageism. He explores ways to age better and feel better about it.
Additionally, speaker Carl Honore has published a children’s book called It’s the Journey, Not the Destination. His books have been translated into 35 languages and appeared on bestseller lists worldwide.
Additionally, Carl has been featured on various media platforms, including the BBC Radio 4 series The Slow Coach, where he helps busy individuals slow down. He also presented the television program Frantic Family Rescue on Australia’s ABC 1.
Carl, a father of two, resides in London. Interestingly, while researching his first book on slowness, he received a speeding ticket.
In today's fast-paced work environment, speed is often hailed as the ultimate goal. However, sometimes slowing down is the optimal choice. As stated by The Economist, "Mastering the clock of business is about choosing when to be FAST and when to be SLOW."
By embracing the power of slowness, any organization can experience a boost in productivity, creativity, leadership, decision-making, problem-solving, communication, collaboration, strategic thinking, health, and purpose. Carl Honore draws upon real-life stories and research from competitive industries worldwide to demonstrate how companies and entrepreneurs can rev up their performance by decelerating.
In today's world, the idea of slowing down can seem counterintuitive, yet it can be the key to thriving. Not only can it improve your health, but it can also add a sense of depth, pleasure, and meaning to your life. Furthermore, slowing down can enhance your creativity and productivity at work. As the legendary actress Mae West once said, "Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly."
Drawing from anecdotes and research worldwide, Carl Honore reveals how unleashing your inner tortoise can help you work, play, and live better.
In today's world, people are living longer and better than ever before. Scientists, artists, and entrepreneurs are finding success later in life, and pop culture is finally recognizing the value of experience. It's clear that there has never been a better time in history to grow older.
Drawing from the latest scientific research, his own personal experience, and global case studies, Carl Honore inspires audiences to see ageing as a privilege and an adventure.
Despite the common belief that an ageing workforce is detrimental to productivity, creativity, and social skills, conventional wisdom is wrong. Research has shown that older workers possess these qualities in abundance and have a strong desire to assist others. It's no wonder that mixed-age teams outperform homogeneous ones on every metric.
Carl Honore draws from the latest research and global case studies to demonstrate how embracing older staff and multigenerational working can lead to greater success for your organization.
