Elliot Volkman. "Master of Communications by day, non-profiteer by night" and Claire Gallam Volkman "Before I was a blogger, a writer and a recipe creator, I was just a chubby kid who loved food."
Now they united in marriage to become a set of filthy and devious human beings with no regard to the life or well-being of others. Their cult like obsession with the destruction of those beneath their hierarchy causes a weakness in their lives, forcing them to evolve lies that they will pay for in the end. Everyone knows... Karma is a b*tch! Their destruction, while you may think you know their character and heart, well you have NO IDEA!!!

Marketing Communication Specialist
Deltek - GovWin
Public Company; 1001-5000 employees; PROJ; Computer Software industry August 2010 Present (2 years) Herndon, VA
Creating, editing, and developing content in all shapes and forms. Whether it's for social media, webinars, collateral, or producing video those are my hats.
My current role of community manager allows me to devote my time to the GovWin members. You can follow us on Twitter for regular updates: @GovWinteam
My daily tasks include monitoring all internal and external communities for GovWin, micro reporting from Gov 2.0 or GovCon events, creating strategic social campaigns, brand evangelism, hosting webinars, managing all social media activity, and socially promoting any and all relevant government contracting content and engaging with our members or related audience. I single handily increased our Twitter growth 484% (with the assistance of excellent content from the editorial team of course) and our site traffic 398% with a single article. If you see those fun marketing messages on our feed, that is not by my hand.
In 2012 I am planning two new projects for Deltek:
1. A news brief in Web broadcast form.
2. A teaming/subcontracting webinar series with a virtual teaming event.
3. Several other projects that don't have green lights.
My overall goal is to spread the word about Deltek becoming an information solutions expert, not just a software product development company.
