A New Science is Born: Change Science Expert Chicago Book Launch

November 6, 2013

Chicago, IL – October 30, 2013 – Change: a concept experienced by all, yet understood by few. The notion of ‘change’ can be outlined scientifically, and used as a template to effectively predict future successes and failures. Former Chicago resident and businessman, Tom Somodi is bringing his distinctive expertise on change to Chicago as he celebrates the release of his book, “The Science of Change: Basics Behind Why Change Succeeds and Fails.”

“From early on in my career I have witnessed organizations and individuals struggle with obtaining successful change, even change initiatives utilizing proven methodologies,” says Somodi. “I came to realize that change was not just something an organization or individual has to do, but follows a set of dynamics that can be summarized by definitions, principles, and concepts. The key is that change is not an art but is really a science, the science of change.”

The book release event will be taking place Wednesday, November 13, 2013 at Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse Rosemont, 5464 N. River Road Rosemont, Illinois 60018. The event begins at 6:00 p.m. and Tom is available for interviews before and after.

Along with his unique perspective and expertise on the science behind change, Tom Somodi is available to offer insight on the following topics:

  • How to successfully obtain a desired change
  • Why proven change methodologies fail
  • How to lower anxiety associated with change
  • How to understand why a particular change took place

Tom is a speaker and expert in the areas of domestic and international reorganizations, acquisitions and strategic change initiatives covering manufacturing, distribution and service sectors and taking a company public during the difficult 2011 financial markets. He has extensive public and private company executive and board level experience including positions as CEO, COO, CFO and CSO. Throughout his career, Tom has helped create thousands of jobs, including hundreds in the Chicago area where he was the Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer of a major employer in Wood Dale, Illinois.
