TE&Co.'s focus on PR + Personal Branding is on Earned and Owned Media — that if you are in creative control of those two, your work will speak for itself.
In our experience, the best way to build a brand is to highlight and raise the profile of the individuals behind it. To that end, we have built comprehensive processes and programs that both equip and empower national leaders to tell their stories, sharpen their voices, and earn the trust of their audiences — ultimately helping our clients articulate their personal perspectives, identify and achieve short and long term goals, and build upon their brand credibility.
Our motto? #ReputationMatters

Hello! I'm Tamara Edwards and I'm the Founder and Director of Communications of TE&Co.
I help national leaders tell their stories, sharpen their voices, earn the trust of their immediate audiences, and raise their profiles in a way that makes sense for their business or brand.
My background in communications, scheduling, and logistics for a high-profile Member of the U.S. House of Representatives gave me the tools and experience to lend PR and political campaign tactics towards clearly defined business goals.
They say it takes two years minimum to build a brand —I've been at this my entire life. In college, I had my own policy discussion talk show on CAN-TV. By the time I was 24, I worked my way into the Federal government in DC and on Capitol Hill —and was recognized as one of the top ten Schedulers in the U.S. Congress. Before returning to Chicago to begin my entrepreneurial career, I was selected as a featured speaker at TEDx Congress edition.
Others took notice of my work. After launching TE&Co. in 2018, I was featured in Voyage Magazine and a “person to know” in a popular Chicago blog, awarded a ‘30 under 30’ award in 2019 from the Publicity Club of Chicago, and in 2021, and was recently named a "Person to Watch" in Chicago by the ChicagoNow blog by the Chicago Tribune.
I built TE&Co. to work hard.
