About Scott Bideau
“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.” – Mark Twain
I am thankful to have discovered several passions in my life to help catch those trade winds!
I have spent the past 24+ years in the knowledge management industry working with almost every major KM and search platform across a variety of functional, technical, and managerial roles. Throughout my career, one goal has remained unchanged: to help clients deliver the same effortless experience that I would expect as their customer or employee. I recently transitioned to sales in an effort to help more customers earlier in that journey.
“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
“Scott is a strategic thinker and a brilliant tactician rolled into one – the consummate Challenger Sales Executive!”
– Tracy Chandler, Sales Director, Consona
Photography introduces me to beautiful landscapes and cityscapes, allows me to document the same action sports that I love participating in, and helps me connect with the community through portrait and personal projects. This avocation has also built a portfolio of images used by nationally recognized organizations like Canon, Fox News, and the U.S. Ski & Snowboarding Association while raising thousands of dollars for charity. Borrowing the words of Imogen Cunningham, my favorite photograph is the one I’m going to take tomorrow.
I strive to make a positive difference in the community through personal volunteering and financial support. I have learned both the reward and exhaustion of local politics after being elected to my local school board and then running a $100 million bond campaign for the district. I have found a way to blend my personal hobbies and charitable interests through the founding and funding of events like Help Portrait Prescott. The more involved I become, the more I recognize that it truly is in giving that we receive.
My #1 priority is family. I met my wife in 1st grade but then waited 20 years to ask her out on our first date. Thankfully, she said yes! We are very proud of our two children, both of whom share our passion for the outdoors. From learning how to surf together to backcountry camping to trying to keep up with them on a ski run or mountain bike trail – we love being “the family that plays (outdoors) together.”
