MU Speaker Spotlight: Scott Harrison of charity: water

April 6, 2016 Miles Price

Meet Scott Harrison. He’s the CEO and founder of charity: water, a nonprofit on a mission to bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries – and he has one of the most anticipated keynotes at Marketing United.

His story is fascinating. You know, assuming you find Scott's decision to give up his lavish lifestyle as a successful New York club promoter to start a nonprofit that’s provided over 5 million people with clean drinking water fascinating. It’s a story of hope, charity, and how great marketing can literally change the world.

Because charity: water really has changed the world. Since 2006, Scott has been at the helm, driving his nonprofit to fund nearly 20,000 water projects in 24 countries, so far. And, to top it all off, charity: water operates on a revolutionary charity model in which 100% of public donations fund the projects, not operations.

Pretty inspiring, right? That’s why we partnered with charity: water to give all Marketing United attendees an opportunity to give back at the conference and participate in a must-see virtual reality experience about the world’s water crisis. It's powerful stuff, and you can help make a difference.
