Unscripted – Creating The Content You Didn’t Know You Had with Chad Illa-Petersen 

You have a story to tell. The all-consuming desire to share your story creates feelings of excitement followed by trepidation and uncertainty. If you're like me, defining that story and crafting it into a piece of content can get frustrating. You stare hopelessly at the blank storyboard on your table and it taunts you. You give in to the pressure to be perfect and your story goes untold. Unscripted helps you eliminate the need for planned out perfection. It allows you to create the narratives that define you and resonate with your audience. I will show you how to find and create these Unscripted moments. Simply sharing the unplanned moments of your day and pulling out the hidden treasures will shout to the world…HEY! THIS IS ME!

Ken and his wife Nita have been devoted to serving children and students since college, as educators, and also as mission partners. After traveling to the Philippines and China, Ken found himself walking away from the security of a weekly paycheck and retirement benefits when he and his wife Nita began “Hearts and Hands International,” an organization committed to helping at-risk children internationally.
Ken and Nita have been traveling, inspiring, and encouraging each other to serve, building working at orphanages in Asia, South America, and Africa. While working in an orphanage in Africa with the Turkana people group, Ken realized a true water need, and WATERisLIFE was conceptualized and put into action.
WATERisLIFE Founder Ken Surritte realized the children were drinking water that came from contaminated wells and retention ponds and other unhealthy sources. Inspired by his backpacking days, Ken began working with a water purification factory and the WATERisLIFE portable, straw filters became the flagship product of WATERisLIFE to bring clean water to children, their schools and villages in 47 countries worldwide.
WATERisLIFE has a variety of filtration methods implemented. Personal straw filters, home systems and even community-wide filtration systems that run on solar and wind power.
WATERisLIFE has created some award-winning viral videos that are helping to challenge and educate others about the world water crisis. Through the efforts through social media, they have been able to bring direct transformation to the areas where these videos were created.
Ken is now working with the UNITED NATIONS as a Special Ambassador under the UN FCCC in the roll of the Water Specialist.
This year WATERisLIFE is bringing new water generation technology to the world water crisis that will change the lives of millions. WATERisLIFE’s goal is to end the world water crisis.
WATERisLIFE in partnership with New Age Beverage Company will be providing water for attendees at the event. We will be accepting donations for them & you will receive additional entries for the giveaway prizes if you donate.
