Carl Honore

Carl Honoré
Writer and broadcaster

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, including Britain. In Praise of Slow was a BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week and the inaugural choice for the Huffington Post Book Club. It also featured in a British TV sitcom, Argentina’s version of Big Brother and a TV commercial for the Motorola tablet. Under Pressure was shortlisted for the Writers’ Trust Award, the top prize for non-fiction in Canada.

Carl made a series for BBC Radio 4 called The Slow Coach in which he helped frazzled, over-scheduled Britons slow down. In 2015, the ABC broadcast Frantic Family Rescue, a TV show in which Carl does the same for over-busy Australians. His TED talk on slowness has been viewed 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.

He lives in London with his wife and two children. In his spare time, he plays slow sports like squash and ball hockey.

Over 200 senior professionals from real estate, facilities, technology, and executive management, architecture, design and other professional advisors will attend to hear the very best from thought leaders and share best practice and expertise. We believe that work is shaped by the intersection between HR/people, technology and space/property.
