Dowd talks ‘Transformation’ in Rockland

Jan 09, 2013

Rockland — Camden author, speaker, trainer and coach Tom Dowd will give a talk based on his new books, “The Transformation of a Doubting Thomas: Growing from a Cynic to a Professional in the Corporate World” and “From Fear to Success: A Practical Public-speaking Guide,” Tuesday, Jan. 22 at 6:30 p.m. in the Friends Community Room of Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St. A book signing will immediately follow the presentation.

With more than 20 years of experience in the financial industry in management and leadership roles, Dowd runs his own business, Thomas Dowd Professional Development & Coaching. Dowd will discuss his inconsistent journey trying to maneuver through the complexity of a corporate environment and teaches us the importance of learning to be ourselves, regardless of whether it is in personal or professional  environments.

Although the presentation tells his story about his transformation, it is really about the audience. Dowd said everyone’s ability to transform may be right in front of them. We have all been presented the gift of feedback and have come up against many milestones that may turn our lives in a different direction.  What we do when we pass these milestones and open these gifts can have a significant impact on our personal and professional success, and in many cases our satisfaction.

Special accommodations for persons with disabilities can be made with 48 hours notice by calling 594-0310. This evening is one in a continuing evening series of literary, film and musical offerings sponsored by the library and Friends of the Rockland Public Library. Admission is free.
