    Award-winning writer, broadcaster and TED speaker.

    The voice of the global Slow Movement. His two main-stage TED Talks have racked up millions of views.

    Author of In Praise of Slow, chronicling the global trend toward putting on the brakes in everything from work to food to parenting.

    Author of Under Pressure, exploring how to raise and educate children in a fast world and The Slow Fix, tackling complex problems in every walk of life, from health and relationships to business and politics, without falling for superficial, short-term quick fixes.

    Author of 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.

    Published in 35 languages, his books have landed on bestseller lists in many countries.

    Carl featured in a series for BBC Radio 4 called The Slow Coach in which he helped frazzled, over-scheduled people slow down. He also presented the television show Frantic Family Rescue on Australia’s ABC.

    Carl Honoré is a sought-after speaker on an international stage and we’re delighted that he has agreed to be interviewed by MEAx Australia. Carl was recently a guest faculty member at the Modern Elder Academy in Baja Mexico and is a supporter of the modern elder movement.
