Carl Honoré is a bestselling author, broadcaster and the voice of the Slow Movement. His two main-stage TED Talks have racked up millions of views.
Carl travels the world to deliver powerful keynotes that put time and tempo in a whole new light. His counter-intuitive message is simple but game-changing: To thrive in a fast world, you have to slow down.
The Wall Street Journal hailed him as “an in-demand spokesman on slowness.” CBC Sunday Edition called him “inarguably, the world’s leading evangelist for the Slow Movement.” The Huffington Post described him as “the unofficial godfather of a growing cultural shift toward slowing down.”
After working with street children in Brazil, Honoré covered Europe and South America for the Economist, Observer, Miami Herald, Houston Chronicle, Time, National Post and other publications.
Carl Honoré’s first book, In Praise of Slow, examines our compulsion to hurry and chronicles a global trend toward putting on the brakes. His second book, Under Pressure, explores the good, the bad and the ugly of modern childrearing – and offers a blueprint for change.
Carl’s latest book, Bolder: Making The Most Of Our Longer Lives, explores ageing – how we can do it better and feel better about doing it. It’s a spirited manifesto against ageism.
“Many thanks for a superb, insightful, dynamic, fun and fully inspiring presentation! Just had excellent feedback from all participants with no exception!”

“Carl’s presentation was a hit, delivering a fresh perspective to our latest conference that tackled speed in business. Carl’s insights and passion managed to inspire so many C-level executives that going slower at times pays more and as a result it helps us improve and possibly find ways of doing things smarter and faster. I highly recommend Carl as he is a very good public speaker and able to adapt his ‘Slow Movement’ to so many different contexts.”
