Journalist, World's Leading Authority on the Slow Movement: How to Slow Down Your Frantic Life

REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

Carl Honore Biography

Canadian-born journalist Carl Honore has written for The Economist, the Houston Chronicle, the Observer, and the National Post, but he is best known for his advocacy of the Slow Movement. A loose and international effort by the harried and haggard to decelerate the pace of their lives, the Slow Movement spans everything from telecommunications (slow email) and health care (slow medicine) to diet (slow food) and public space (slow cities).

Honore's bestselling book "In Praise of Slowness" plots the lineage of our speed-obsessed society; while it recognizes the difficulty of slowing down, it also highlights the successes of everyday people around the world who have found ways of doing it. Honoré traces his "Aha" moment to his son's bedtime, when Honore would race through storybooks -- skipping pages, reading portions of paragraphs -- to move things along. (He's since reformed.) His next book, "Under Pressure", is about how we are raising a generation of overprogrammed, overachieving and exhausted children.

"[Honore] shows us various methods to release ourselves ... from what Baudelaire denounced as 'the horrible burden of time,' to break free of the Matrix-like illusion that we have no choice. "

Speaking Topics
  • The Slow Revolution

    Slowing down judiciously and at the right moments can bring more depth, pleasure and meaning to our lives. It can also boost our health and make us more efficient, creative and productive. Honoré shows how we can all work, think, play and live better by unleashing our inner tortoise.

  • Raising Children in a Fast World

    Honoré explores how to strike the right balance between doing too much and doing too little for children, and shows how slowing down can give them a childhood worthy of the name. He touches on themes ranging from technology and extracurricular activities to schooling, safety and consumerism.

  • The Slow Fix

    Honoré serves up a recipe for solving complex problems in every walk of life, from business and politics to medicine and relationships. He shows how to: admit and learn from mistakes; work out the root causes of a problem; tap ideas from everywhere; embrace uncertainty; and more.
