Dowd speaks on transformation
Belfast — Camden author Tom Dowd will give a talk based on lessons learned from his award-winning books “The Transformation of a Doubting Thomas: Growing from a Cynic to a Professional in the Corporate World” and “From Fear to Success” Tuesday, Oct. 22, at 6:30 p.m. at the Abbott Room of Belfast Free Library, 106 High St. The program is free and open to the public.
With more than 23 years of experience in the financial industry in management and leadership roles, Dowd runs his own business, Thomas Dowd Professional Development & Coaching, as a speaker, author, trainer and coach. He developed a series of management presentations into a speaking program called Powerful Professional Transformation: Unleashing Leadership. The speaking engagements turned into “The Transformation of a Doubting Thomas,” a book detailing Dowd’s own professional growth based on lessons learned in his career.
Dowd will give a presentation called The Transformational Journey: A Story of Self-Awareness, Belief, and Action, based on the introduction of that book. The presentation tells his story about his transformation journey, but really is about the audience and everyone’s ability to transform. The presentation is intended to have attendees find their own deeper understanding of themselves that will take them to places they have never imagined.
Dowd graduated from the University of Delaware in 1990 with a degree concentrating on interpersonal and organizational communication. He was a founding member and Vice President of Education for Dirigo Toastmasters Club in Belfast before joining Kennebec Valley Toastmasters in Augusta. Dowd holds advanced communication and advanced leadership certifications with Toastmasters International including a High Performance Leadership (HPL) certification. He also is a member of the National Speakers Association.
