About Scott Bideau
I’m a software sales executive, photographer, skier and snowboarder, mountain biker, Eagle Scout, proud father, lucky husband, and civic-minded individual.
The objective of this blog is to share my passion in each of these areas while exchanging ideas with others through the post comments. I’ve separated the posts into three categories: professional>, personal, and photography.
I’ve been fortunate to enjoy 22+ years in the Customer Relationship Management, Knowledge Management, and Enterprise Search industry working with almost every major CRM/KM/search platform across a variety of functional, technical, and managerial roles within multiple industry verticles.
- “Scott is a human swiss-army knife: he has so broad a skill set, he can always find a way to deliver.” – Scott Davis, CEO, Lyzasoft
Throughout my career, one goal has remained unchanged: to help my clients deliver the same effortless experiences that I would expect as their customer or employee.
Mark Twain once said that:
- “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
For me, this includes grabbing a few ski runs before work, taking a bike ride over the lunch break to gain a fresh perspective on my day, and backcountry camping on the weekends to spend quality time with my family while also connecting with both the beauty and uncertainty of nature.
I strive to make a positive difference in the community through both personal volunteering and financial support to charitable organizations, primarily those that help children and people with developmental disabilities.
This avocation has introduced me to beautiful landscapes, new and interesting people, and impactful personal projects while also generating money for charity. I love sharing what I have learned with others through my photograpy blog posts.
This passion for capturing memories has also helped me found two local Help Portrait chapters (Steamboat Springs, CO and Prescott, AZ) to provide a free, professional portrait and framed print to hundreds of people in need.
