Carl Honoré is an award-winning writer, broadcaster and TED speaker.

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, Carl covered Europe and South America for the Economist, Observer, Miami Herald, Houston Chronicle, Time, National Post and other publications.

His first book, In Praise of Slow, examines our compulsion to hurry and chronicles a global trend toward putting on the brakes. The Financial Times said it is “to the Slow Movement what Das Kapital is to communism.”

His second book, Under Pressure, explores the good, the bad and the ugly of modern childrearing - and offers a blueprint for change. It was hailed by Time as a “gospel of the Slow Parenting movement.”

Carl’s latest book, The Slow Fix, explores how to tackle complex problems in every walk of life, from health and relationships to business and politics, without falling for superficial, short-term quick fixes.

Translated into more than 30 languages, his books have landed on bestseller lists in many countries.

Carl presented a series for BBC Radio 4 called The Slow Coach in which he helped rushed, over- scheduled Britons slow down. In 2015, he presented a TV show called Frantic Family Rescue on Australia’s ABC. His TED talk on slowness has been viewed over 1.5 million times.


On top of writing, broadcasting and researching the benefits of deceleration, Carl rushes (slowly, of course) around the world to deliver speeches and workshops.

Carl helps audiences across the globe see the world in a new light. His talks are dynamic, challenging, eloquent, informative and full of humour. He is at ease running workshops for small groups or working the stage in front of thousands of people. His audiences range from entrepreneurs, IT professionals and business executives to teachers, academics and medical practitioners. He also delivers talks and seminars on parenting. His past clients range from Microsoft and Nokia to Citibank, Accenture and Unilever to Eton College and Haagen Dazs.
