On Saturday, May 3, The Rockport Public Library invites the public to a presentation and book signing by author and professional development coach, Tom Dowd.

Dowd addresses his experiences, insights and ah-ha moments in his new work, "Displacement Day: When My Job was Looking for a Job."

As Dowd says “I lost my job, but I found me. Having a clear plan of attack, an ironclad network, the strength to rise above rejection, and the ability to take action will land you in a professional place that you may never have dreamed of. Your next career move isn't hidden: It's right in front you — so grab it!”

All are welcome to attend the event, which begins at 6 p.m. at Rockport Opera House.

Dowd has more than 20 years of experience in management and leadership roles within the financial and customer service industries. As well as being a member of the National Speakers Association, Dowd is an award-winning active member of Toastmasters International. He is also the author of several other well received books: "From Fear To Success" and "Transformation of a Doubting Thomas."
