Tom Dowd, AKA Transformation Tom™, is a loving father of three beautiful daughters and a devoted husband from a small town in Maine.  He is a graduate of the University of Delaware with a Communication degree, concentrating on interpersonal and organizational communication. Tom is a prize-winning speaker, an award-winning and Amazon best-selling author, trainer, coach, and radio host—all spurred by his need to be more than a painfully shy and introverted individual on a rollercoaster ride of success.

With over 24 years of experience in the financial industry in management and leadership roles at the same organization and a plethora of inconsistency on this professional journey, Tom received the call nobody wanted:  “We’re downsizing.”  After unexpectedly losing his full-time job, Tom landed in a better place in just 59 days using methods from his coaching and training.   He is now a VP at one of the larger financial institutions in North America.  In 2011, he started his own side business “Thomas Dowd Professional Development & Coaching” where he continues to use the lessons learned on his climb up the corporate ladder to help people creatively find ways to differentiate themselves in the workplace and to find their own individual paths toward success. The mantra is “Transform into who you really want to be.”  Tom is the award-winning author of two books. “The Transformation of a Doubting Thomas: Growing from a Cynic to a Professional in the Corporate World,” details Tom’s own professional growth based on lessons learned in his career, which received Honorable Mention at the 2012 New England Book Festival.  “From Fear to Success: a Practical Public Speaking Guide” won the Gold Medal at the 2013 Axiom Business Book Awards in the Business Reference Category. Both are available in book and eBook versions, while “Fear” is also available as an audiobook.  His most recent book, derived from the unemployed stint, “Displacement Day:  When My Job was Looking for a Job” was published in March 2014 and received Honorable Mention at the 2014 Paris and New York Book Festivals.  In September, Tom will begin hosting the “Transformation Time with Transformation Tom” live radio program on the Intertainment Network: Talk4Media (W4CY Radio)- distribution to iTunes, iHeart Radio, and Live 365.

Susan is also the founder of the Informed Women’s Network, a non-profit, non-partisan organization which engages, educates and empowers women on pocketbook issues. Her latest book, “Connectworking™: The Savvy Woman’s Guide To Turning Small Talk Into Big Business,” is a must-have handbook for any woman who wants to own the room, smash through glass ceilings or take their business to greater heights.

As her family will be only too happy to confirm, Susan is never afraid to give her opinion if asked (and usually if not asked). Endlessly curious, active in the community, a home design fanatic, Boston Bruins nut and keen soprano, she lives on the coast of Maine with her exceedingly indulgent husband and admittedly spoiled dogs.
