This is me, I did the election thing twice already – who knows if there is going to be a third time.
I’ve had this blog since 2011 and have tried to write mainly about politics for a while but know I’m writing about things that are happening today and happening to me and around me. I have lived in downtown Ottawa since 2007, its where I want to be – long term, besides I do not like moving.
My business background includes 20+ years with Bell Canada in Customer Sales and Service and a couple more with N-Viro Systems Canada where I was Sales and Product Quality for a fertilizer manufacturer using waste diverted from the landfill. It was a great job and allowed me to see parts of Canada I normally would not have visited.
I am very active in my community, besides politics, and have been part of an affordable housing organization since 2007. I have a huge interest in communications and in using Social Media for social good. I like it so much that I’ve launched RD Media to help others develop “Social strategies for Success”. I can be found on Twitter (twice @robertdekker & @RDMediaOttawa, on Facebook and Linkedin.
I have two adult children and have enjoy living in Centretown with my partner Liz for the past 13 years.
If there is anything else you’d like to know, just ask.
