In Praise of Slow: Life & Communication at The Right Speed in the Digital Age /

The pace, the escalation of crisis and the pressure communications and business professionals receive from leadership can make careers feel tiresome and bring burn out faster than ever. The inability to balance family and personal interests creates a seething resentment that we bury as we continue to put on a professional demeanour.

When we forget how to slow down, every aspect of our life suffers – our relationships, families and communities, work even our diet and health. But there is an alternative to today’s roadrunner culture. It’s called the Slow movement. Being Slow is not about doing everything at a snail’s pace; it’s about doing everything at the right speed. Slowing down at the right moments can bring more depth, pleasure and meaning to your life. It can boost your happiness and make you more efficient, productive and creative. It can also strengthen your relationships and help you communicate better. During this keynote Carl will focus on five key areas where slowing down pays dividends: work, exercise, medicine, sex, education and parenting.
