Scott Harrison spent a decade entertaining his darkest vices as a nightclub promoter until he finally realized he was creating a meaningless legacy. Spiritually and emotionally bankrupt, Scott volunteered as a photojournalist on a hospital ship off the coast of West Africa. There, he saw the devastating health impact dirty water has on communities. 

He returned to New York and promptly founded charity: water, a non-profit dedicated to providing clean drinking water to people in developing nations. Scott shares the story of his digitally driven charity quickly becoming a disruptor in the nonprofit industry—raising over $350 million to fund 30,000 water projects in 26 developing countries and providing over 8.5 million people with access to clean, safe drinking water.

On stage, audiences hear Scott’s wild journey of growing up as a young boy under the weight of helping his fragile mother, then as an 18-year old, diving headfirst into career that left him soulless. In his uplifting presentations, he shares how he converted the skills of a nightclub promoter into building charity: water from nothing more than a desire to achieve something larger than himself. Scott’s book, Thirst: A Story of Redemption, Compassion, and a Mission to Bring Clean Water to the World, became a New York Times Bestseller. Audiences respond enthusiastically to his message that change starts with one motivated individual – and it’s never too late to be that person.
