As the first employee at Cooper Katz in 1996, Tamara learned from the best in the agency business.

The power of No B.S. Marketing with Lee Barnathan
In this episode, I had a chance to sit down with Lee
Here is his bio:
People hire Lee for their various communications needs because they want someone professional who will cut through the b******t and help them communicate easily, efficiently and effectively.
Lee doe this using the journalism principles of honesty, accuracy, clarity and brevity in all writing and editing. It started in high school when he uncovered a ballot-stuffing incident, resulting in the election being declared null and void. It continued in newspapers when people saw he had talents for asking the right open-ended questions and engaging in active, empathetic and sympathetic listening.
Lee's professional writing and editing goes beyond asking the standard who/what/where/when/how/why queries. There’s an emotional component to it. People find they can trust him to handle their sensitive information. They tell him, “I can’t believe I’m telling you this,” and it leads to better communication and collaboration because Lee shows care, sensitivity, understanding and validation. Then he tells their stories with all the integrity, care and craftsmanship they deserve. His writing and editing personalizes their stories so they feel he's telling it in their voices.
Since 1990, clients have trusted Lee with their information in a way that easily, efficiently and effectively tells their stories, informs their target audiences/demographics, sells their products, and states the desired message so they can accomplish their goals.

How to grow from 0 to 50 employees with Chris Brown
Chris began his career in the Turfgrass Science industry when he was seventeen years old. He was hired as help for a Summer at Woodway Country Club in Darien, CT. While he was primarily looking forward to fresh air and sun while working, he became fascinated with the extensive science that was behind the maintenance of grass at such a high level. He had been mowing his home lawn since he was twelve, but had never realized just how much there was to it.
Chris enrolled at Penn State University based on the stellar reputation of their Turfgrass Science program. While there, he spent Summers working in Turfgrass Pathology research, and at a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course in the Pittsburgh, PA area. In 1994 he received a B.S. Degree in Turfgrass Science and returned home to Connecticut as the Assistant Superintendent of Rockrimmon Country Club in Stamford.
Though he had been working aggressively toward a career in Golf Course Maintenance, his own aspirations gradually shifted toward business ownership. Though he tried to stay the course he had set, entrepreneurial instincts took over and he quickly grew to dislike the daily grind of the golf course business. He left Rockrimmon to re-plan his career and soon met Peter Teed, who had been working for a local lawn care company as a manager and salesman. The two hit it off quickly and realized that they complemented each other well. In September, 1995 they incorporated their business as “GrassRoots Lawn Care, Inc.” The name was changed to Teed & Brown in August, 2004.
In addition to holding a Bachelors Degree in Turfgrass Science, Chris is a Certified Lawn Care Manager. He has appeared as a guest speaker at The University of Rhode Island, SUNY Cobleskill, Penn State University, The University of Connecticut, and at several professional conferences over the years. He has also appeared as a guest lawn care expert on Connecticut channel WTNH.
