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.”
I wholeheartedly agree with this advice from Mark Twain and have thankfully discovered several passions in my life that 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. I recently transitioned to sales in an effort to help more customers earlier in their journey. Throughout my career, one goal has remained unchanged: to help clients deliver the same effortless experiences that I would expect as their customer or employee.
“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. His knowledge of the industry provides his clients true thought leadership – the consummate Challenger Sales Executive!”
– Tracy Chandler, Sales Director Americas, Consona
Picking up a digital SLR camera ten years ago sparked an avocation in photography that has introduced me to beautiful landscapes and impactful personal projects while also helping to generate thousands of dollars for charity. I have had a lot of fun while slowly building a portfolio of images that have been used by nationally recognized organizations and brands like Canon, Fox News, US Forest Service, National Interscholastic Cycling Association, U.S. Ski & Snowboard Association, and more.
I strive to make a positive difference in the community through both 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 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. I’m incredibly thankful that 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.”
