Author and TED speaker, Nathaniel A. Turner, is a self-described “Humanity Propulsion Engineer.” Turner’s appeared in many media outlets, including The Washington Post, Black Enterprise, iHeartRadio, The Good Men Project, Sirius XM, and U.S. News & World Report. Corporations, municipalities, and NGOs like Anthem, Inc., National Collegiate Athletic Association, the City of Indianapolis, and the National Society of Black Engineers invite Nate to share his practical message for living the life we’ve always imagined while also serving the greater good.
A modern-day Renaissance Man, as evidenced by the diversity of his education, including a bachelor in accounting, masters in history and theology, and doctor of jurisprudence combined with a wide range of personal experiences and professions, are only part of what makes his wide-ranging presentations “can’t miss” events. What truly sets Nate apart from others is his unique oft times comical ability not only to see the world differently but to challenge his audiences in an edutaining way to live outside the box so that the world might be able to experience us at our very best.
As a zealous advocate that every person has an opportunity to maximize their human potential, Nate regularly shares through books, courses, workshops, and conferences a backward design life process initially created to help his unborn child become a great global citizen and meet the rigorous educational requirements of the top colleges and universities without means of wealth, privilege, legacy status, fraud, bribery, cheating or Adobe Photoshop. Today, those tools, techniques, and strategies initially created to help a Gen Zer thrive in the Fourth Industrial Revolution are educational and life development staples for students and parents of all ages, and organizations all over the country.
When you hear Nathaniel, not only will it be obvious why he is a highly sought after speaker, you will never be the same. Moreover, there is little doubt that those in the audience will leave with a renewed commitment to live the life they’ve always imagined while doing their part to leave the earth better than it was when they arrived.
- "Raising Supaman" - In October 1994, Nathaniel Turner received news that left him petrified and ecstatic - he was going to be a father. Turner was inexperienced and unprepared. There was no guidebook on how to be a father. Determined to defy stereotypes and to be a great father, Turner created his own parenting manual.Raising Supaman is a collection of beautifully written letters Turner wrote to his son. The wonderfully loving letters established the “relational legacy”, provided instruction on being a great citizen, inspired his son to strive for excellence, and left a historical account of a parent’s love.Raising Supaman is loaded with practical, insightful and useful tips to help parents. Raising Supaman encourages parents to be their best so that they can raise successful children. Whether you are dealing with the growing pains of a child or whether you are a attempting to inspire or motivate a child, Raising Supaman is a must read. If you’ve been looking for the answers: an instructional manual for great parenting, a tool to improve your relationship with your child and a guidebook that can inspire a child to consistently reach for the moon, Raising Supaman is just the book for you.
- "It's A Jungle Out There: Power Parenting Lessons Inspired by The Lion King" - Where have all the parents gone? What happened to those who, like my grandmother, treated parenting as the most important human responsibility and the planet's oldest profession? My grandmother, if she were living, would not recognize today's parents. Something is amiss. We reside in a country that places higher demands on passing a driver's education course than it does on procreation and raising children. We offer classes like Lamaze to prepare parents for the birth of a child but have no such courses to equip parents for being able to raise a child. The way we view parenting and subsequently raise children is absurd. So, I wrote this book because I believe my grandmother would have wanted me to say something. I wrote this book because I'm concerned that if we wait much longer to outline a process to help our future citizens, we won't be able to repair or recondition the fabric of our nation. I wrote this book because I believe all children need and deserve great parents.
- "Stop The Bus: Education Reform in 31 Days" - Stop the Bus is a collection of letters written to media editors throughout the country.
