David Meerman Scott was vice president of marketing at NewsEdge Corporation, but in 2002, after NewsEdge was sold to The Thomson Corporation, he was fired because his ideas were a little too radical for his new bosses. Scott decided to start his own business to work on his ideas, select his clients and teach others through writing, speaking at conferences, and conducting seminars for corporate groups. The subject of all this work is to help others reach their buyers directly and drive more revenue.
In past advisory work, David Meerman Scott contributed to successful companies as a member of the board of directors of NewsWatch KK (later sold to Yahoo Japan) and Kadient (merged with Sant) and served on the board of advisors of Eloqua (sold to Oracle in early 2013) and GrabCAD (sold to Stratasys in 2014).

David Meerman Scott has had the opportunity to speak on all seven continents, in over 40 countries, to some of the most respected firms, organizations and associations in the world. He customizes his keynotes and masterclasses for each audience, but the core of every event is an urgent call to action: scale and media buying power are no longer a decisive advantage; what counts today is speed and agility. Real-Time is the mindset for the future, and content is king.
