Debbie has both the formal administrative training and the years of experience in running thousands of staff and making hundreds of millions in revenue while experiencing rapid organizational expansion. This has given her a high level of skill at optimizing work situations and troubleshooting problem areas.

I wonder why she doesn't mention the non-profit organization is the Church of Scientology? :whistling:

Plus it's self promotion. I'm sure she'll have to 'fess up if she has a serious inquiry. I hope she does well.

Debbie has both the formal administrative training and the years of experience in running thousands of staff with very little pay and sleep, and making hundreds of millions in revenue due to heavy regging of members, sending staff out to people who do not answer the phone calls, while experiencing rapid organizational expansion. This has given her a high level of skill at optimizing work situations and troubleshooting problem areas.

To be fair, take a look at her Linked-In profile: http://www.linkedin.com/in/debbiecookbaumgarten. It doesn't hide her past and present affiliation to the CofS, although I admit the S-word doesn't appear there, and one would have to look up any of the unfamiliar entities to see the connection.

But, hell, I'm in the same boat. I don't put the S-word on any of my non-Scn sites either, although I don't hide my past affiliation either. Not that I could if I wanted to. :)

Debbie knows profit!

Debbie knows "proven ways to get volume new patients!"



CV excerpt: Ms. Cook has an extraordinarily successful track record in the patient industry, setting ever-increasing & record-breaking high volumes of new patient signups at a hugely profitable psychosomatic treatment clinic. Ms. Cook's duties there included the oversight of maintaining positive public relations in the field and she was instrumental in the successful piloting pilot program for reducing the spread of negative public relations to zero!

after completing my Routing-Out-Form which included a
little procedure that is designed to limit reactive natter. Debbie
said my surgically severed vocal chords will be reattached when I
show that I can be trusted to not spread entheta about anything
negative that happened at the Pychosomatic Treatment Center which,

On the other hand, Debbie & Bruce are now self-sufficient and have bills to pay like the rest of us. One of my biggest obstacles post-cult was finding job and formatting my resumes to explain time gaps in job history.

I couldn't be honest and list the Church of Scientology as en employer. Ahem. Job duties: criminal & unethical business practices, assault & battery, investigatory surveillance on innocent people, taking orders to end people's lives, etc.

Debbie has to present herself in the best light that will encourage people to hire her, even if it means major fudging on her work history. The lady has to eat and pay rent, too.

In looking at her blog it appears to me that she is still a CO$ Scientologist.

She supports the Way to Happiness, Narcanon and Criminon.

I don't buy that she is not still connected.

As far fetched as it may seem, some of the "escapees" may just be an op by DM to infiltrate society covertly.

I would not trust her.

Umm. Where have you been? Marty posted on his blog earlier this year that he spoke with her and her husband, that they decided to route out of the SO properly, so they remain in good graces with Scientology. She & Bruce remain very much "in".

Earlier this year, Lisa McPherson's former boss and "best friend" (who turned her head when Lisa needed her most), Benetta Slaughter, offered Debbie a job with her small company. Debbie declined. Benetta & Denise Miscavige Gentile are friends on Debbie's Facebook.

Last December, Debbie claimed to be ill...

In the US when a baseball pitcher is retired mid-game, they say he is "sent to the showers".

Your choice of the word Golden is rather appropriately paired with Showers--considering that the Sea Org pisses on anyone who doesn't enjoy being a slave and leaves.

True True!

Reminds me of a Russian story (can't recall the name) about a man who was incarcerated most of his life (for political reasons) in Siberia. He was confined to a barren little cell where he had a tiny barred window which he could climb up and peer out of. And at a certain angle, if he looked just right, he could just barely see part of a living tree branch.

After many decades, he was eventually released and he managed to find a good job. Then he set about the task of finding a permanent place to live.

Although there were many lovely apartments he could easily afford, he chose the smallest, most barren room in the city. And it had one very tiny window that--if he climbed up and peered out at a certain angle, he was barely just able to see part of a tree branch.

I think it is such with many ex-CoS-Scientologists.

Her business appears to be closely modeled on a WISE consultant type business, like the one run by David Singer. Is it a Wise group?

Also, Panda and Al, she was given a payout to stay quiet, I heard she took $50K, can't even remember where I heard it. Could be BS.

The funny thing about heer "staying in" is Debbie was DM's facilitator to ensure no one who left the SO to go up the bridge would be allowed to get Flag services, the routine was to rege a public and let them turn up, then if they'd recently left the SO give them a ridiculous training line up to even qualify, a friend of mine was there to do a CCRD and was told he ad to train to class 4 as well as ethics specialist training before he could do anything at Flag. He had to go and take the service at Tampa org.

Flag kept the money of course and Tampa would get a paper transfer.

I don't think Karma will be very kind to Debbie, in fact I can see her future in the cofs as being on a hiding to nowhere.

Well put, Feral. I hope living the "wog" life might bring some marbles back into her head. Her being LRH of a Facebook, might potentially turn her into Marty of a Facebook, if she will choose so. All it would take is to start telling the truth about the abuses. But I don't have much hopes on that one.

Last I checked my ideas of "orders of magnitude" were much in order though. :D

But, now that we're on the subject, I also will shut up for a cool mill, jus' sayin'.

But now that you mention it, it's their orders of magnitude that's awry, when you've worked for 100+ hrs per week for $50 and the normal termination payout is a cool ten weeks pay, $500. $50K sounds like the kind of money that the Cof$ would think a person *could* be bought for.

It would have been really surprising if there had been no responses that did not wish Ms Cook well in her endeavours.

Why begrudge anyone the right to earn a living?

I'm taking a wild guess and say no one who responded knew/knows her well. She could be an absolute angel who was caught in an evil organisation and forced to act evilly in order to survive; or she could be a vindictive devil who enjoyed the freedom to spread the misery while within the church's ranks.
Some information about her on the net shows her in positive light, some negative. I found it difficult to get a handle on who she is.

We do hear she was treated very badly while in the Sea Org (http://markrathbun.wordpress.com/category/debbie-cook/) and it may be karma for her part in Maria Pia Gardini's misery (http://www.xenutv.com/blog/?p=218)

I would like to be fair. She escaped a cult and is trying to pick up the pieces of her life. Why begrudge her the right to make a living and plan for retirement. Why drag up the past?

Still.

If a friend or family member showed me her site and asked my opinion on whether I felt this would be a good idea, I would tell them to run like hell in the opposite direction.

The site seemed WISE-y to me. Whether that was a correct assumption or not, that was my initial impression.
She is still a Scientologist in good standing.
WISE is used to get people into Scientology and up the bridge. http://whyaretheydead.info/krasel/declaration-vaughn090893.htm

I can't imagine she has forgotten the $40k commission she got from Maria Gardini and perhaps a little commission for recruiting new members would help improve the retirement savings.

So my thought processes are this:
Dentist buys the package
Dentist gets persuaded to try some Sci courses (to assist the business of course)
Dentist insists staff do courses too http://scienceblogs.com/dispatches/2010/01/another_scientology_lawsuit.php
Dentist starts to resemble the following success stories:
http://whyaretheydead.info/krasel/dec_ed_hattaway-260201.html
http://whyaretheydead.info/krasel/dec_turbyne-030592.html

Will this service ruin even more lives?
I don't know for sure, but I feel there is a high probablility that someone is going to be hurt along the line.

Another thing -Why would anyone hire the management expertise of someone who managed herself into this situation:
http://markrathbun.wordpress.com/category/debbie-cook/

For the next twelve hours Debbie was made to stand in a large garbage can and face one hundred people screaming at her demanding a confession as to her “homosexual tendancies”. While this was going on water was poured over her head. Signs were put around Debbie’s neck, one marked in magic marker “LESBO” while this torture proceeded. Debbie was repeatedly slapped across the face by other women in the room during the interrogation. Debbie never did break. And fittingly she was rewarded with what turned out to be a break in another sense of the word.

This is a horrible, horrible situation! No one deserves this.

But this is the "CEO of a large non-profit organization with thousands of staff etc etc..."
She allowed "her staff" to get this bad?
The CEO had to run away from her place of employment and was followed and harassed? What the hell type of organization was she running?

And would you want her input in making your practice better? Seriously, this is a good idea?

Yes I am aware it is acceptable (?) self promotion in the site, I am aware that she didn't orchestrate the horrors. But don't call yourself CEO and then not take the obvious extrapolation when some of the past slips out.

And that, in my opinion, is a reason why the Scientology (or WISE- if any) connection is not mentioned or inferred on the site. Linking the name with the cult will bring up search engine results with the disgraceful torture and abuse of herself, and her disgraceful use of hardball tactics in getting a woman to give up her inheritance.
Sure she doesn't have to state her "religion" but if you are using all the infallible techniques taught by the religion, why be coy? Why is Narconon coy about their affiliation?
All rhetorical questions of course.

As sorry as I feel for her, as much as I would like to believe she is brilliant at her job and could boom a business, unfortunately we are all, at least initially, judged by what we have done and where we have been in the past.

Wonderful, well thought out post, Anonomog.

I also want to add that one cannot trust everyone who's ex cult. There are some people who used to be in, who now totally eschew Scn and everything connected with it who are still untrustworthy and are destructive awful people. All sorts of people join CofS. Some were shitheads before they even got there and others may have been twisted by their experiences and by their own misdeeds.

Bottom line, being an ex doth not a good - or bad- person make.

:thumbsup: Yes. She is a card carrying Scn. She could be reinstated as C/O FSO in a few months for all we know, or get a new position in OSA with all the cushy benefits.

Right NOW I believe she is sincere in her statements. Then again, she could be getting used to flush out any of the "disaffected" Scns.

Meanwhile a bit of caution is wise, but the show on FB is terrific. :yes:

I have heard this is typical behaviour of many ex long term prisoners who have become institutionalised and can't see a way out of their old routines - they live outside just the same as they did in jail. Even to the extent of living in a small corner of a large room.
