Sandy's Bio

TadZo Mascots


TadZo is named after Tad & Zo. Taddy went to doggie heaven. He was the original TadZo "CFO" a.k.a. Chief Food Officer


TadZo "CBO" a.k.a. Chief Ball Officer 

and the first to notice when a delivery is on its way to the office!


TadZo "CFO" in-training. He has big "paws" to fill. As a puppy, he is more interested in swimming and playing at the park than his TadZo responsibilities.

We Believe...

life is too short so we must do meaningful work that we enjoy.

We want to make a difference - a positive impact - and have fun doing it.

in the power of groups.

Reach out and work together because more ideas emerge from a group than individuals. We embrace inclusiveness. Plus many hands make light work - and you can have more fun creating together.

we don't have all the answers.

We learn together with our clients. We innovate together from our synergies and diverse experiences. We leverage our networks for ideas  and partners to bring great value.

that "shoulds" rarely translate into action.

Instead of telling you what you should do, we teach and discover through involvement. The result is commitment, buy-in, ownership - whatever you want to call it - and energy to get into action!

nothing is classier than kindness.

Kindness helps us stay centered on what ultimately matters most.

life is better with a dog.

Slobber. Rhythmic panting. Play fetch. Greet deliveries. Take a nap. Never a dull moment for Behos and Enzo in the TadZo office.
