Inspiring Disruptors Who Flipped Ideas On Their Heads

Scott Harrison and Geoffrey Tabin

Disruption is a big buzz word right now. We’d like to introduce you to two speakers who took outdated business models and totally reinvented them to incredible results.

They are master storytellers who will challenge your audience to find novel solutions to challenges they’re facing and motivate them to act now:

Scott Harrison, Founder and CEO of Charity : Water

Scott worked in New York for 10 years as a club promoter before an “Aha!” moment led him to found a revolutionary non-profit called Charity : Water. Before launching the non-profit, he felt charity had developed a negative stigma and wanted to change conventional wisdom around what a charity could be. In honest, moving presentations he walks audiences through the steps he took to build Charity : Water and how he continues to push for innovation through technology, new partnerships, and excellent storytelling. Watch this video to see how he disrupted the notion of traditional charity.

Geoff Tabin, Co-Founder of the Himalayan Cataract Project and Professor of Global Medicine at Stanford

Dr. Tabin’s revolutionary model in eye-care has restored sight to 2 million people globally by taking a surgery that formerly cost $200 and reimaging the medical process. He now completes it in third world countries for just $25 per patient and has restored sight to hundreds of thousands. A recipient of the Dalai Lama’s “Unsung Hero of Compassion” award, he was recently featured in a 60 Minutes profile; take a look. Geoff talks about chasing impossible dreams, reimagining problems to create solutions that change the world, and how to know when to persevere and when to pivot.
