About Enzo di Taranto

N-Zen results from the vision, research and innovation of hundreds of leaders, who have dedicated their lives to the study of human excellence in politics, arts, sports, business and life. During the last 40 years, Enzo di Taranto has studied such a wisdom and crystallized it in N-Zen and other visionary concepts, such as: World Peace 2050, the Holistic Training System and the Reality-Creation Equation. To this aim, he has traveled the four continents, crossing oceans, rivers, deserts and jungles, through wars, natural disasters and peace conferences, looking for the essence of human excellence. As manager of global programmes and campaigns in Europe and USA – like Action 2, UNiTE and the Network of Men Leaders – he studied the qualities and training of world leaders, top entrepreneurs, celebrities and sport champions, such as: Bill Clinton, Desmond Tutu, Ted Turner, Paulo Coelho, Giorgio Armani, George Clooney, Sean Penn, Vin Diesel, Michael Schumacher and Leonel Messi. Moreover, as a diplomat, he could observe the human behaviour in conflict, post-conflict and transitional contexts, such as: Colombia, Haiti, Kosovo, Indonesia, Laos, Mali, Nicaragua, Mozambique, Serbia, Somalia and South Africa. Enzo di Taranto has two master degrees in development economics and international relations, and multiple post-graduated training with world-class centers like Harvard University, Fundação Getulio Vargas (Rio de Janeiro) and Ecole Nationale d’Administration (ENA/Paris). He has performed high-level assignments for the United Nations, European Union, Civil Society and top government officials, including Presidents, Prime Ministers, Chancellors, G20 Ambassadors, religious and military leaders. Furthermore, the author has a black belt in Judo, two advanced degrees in Samurai techniques (Okinawan school) and a lifetime of applied research of oriental philosophy, psychology, strategy and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) - both external and internal – such as: Ju-Jitsu, Jeet-Kun-Do, Nin-Po, Aikido, Yoga, Shiatzu and Qi Gong. Enzo di Taranto is fluent in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian. He has authored several videos, websites, essays and books on international affairs, including the award-winning novel “World Peace 2050” and a publication on advanced training for the media in crisis situations, co-authored by the Nobel Prize winner Gabriel García Márquez.
