Women’s leadership is a subject very close to our hearts at Page Two, so we’re really jazzed about the work of our new client, Tammy Heermann. Tammy is a leadership development expert and keynote speaker who helps individuals and organizations get serious about leadership. For over twenty years she has developed and facilitated pioneering and multiple award-winning programs, beginning from within human resources and ultimately as the head of the leadership development practice at a global consulting firm. She has helped change thousands of people’s mindsets around what it takes to lead, both self and others.
Tammy is specifically sought out by global Fortune 500 companies for her expertise in gender diversity and programs that accelerate women’s advancement. While having significant impact in the C-Suite, she is happiest when pushing up-and-coming leaders to break through organizational and self-imposed barriers to reach their potential. She creates trust by sharing stories of her own journey from senior consultant to senior vice-president. Through alternating moments of humour and heartache people walk away from their experiences with Tammy transformed.
Tammy sits on the Women’s Leadership Advisory Committee for Women in Communications and Technology where she helps aspiring C-Suite leaders advance through sponsorship. She is a graduate of the London School of Economics where she earned a Master of Science degree for her studies on change management and global human resource strategies. Tammy’s forthcoming book aims to empower women—at work and in life. We warmly welcome Tammy to Page Two and can’t wait to get working with her next year.

At Page Two, we’re looking ahead to 2019 with optimism—in large part because our author-clients are people who light us up and make positive change in the world. Case in point: our new client Andrew Tarvin is the world’s first Humour Engineer, teaching people how to get better results while having more fun. Andrew has worked with 35,000+ people at 250+ organizations, including Microsoft, the FBI, and the International Association of Canine Professionals. Combining his background as a project manager at Procter & Gamble with his experience as an international comedian, Andrew reverse-engineers the skill of humour in a way that is practical, actionable, and gets results in the workplace. He is a best-selling author, has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and FastCompany, and his TEDx talk has been viewed over 2 million times. He has delivered programs in 50 states, 20 countries, and 1 Planet (Earth). He loves the colour orange (which happens to be one of Page Two’s brand colours—coincidence?!) and is obsessed with chocolate (just like us!). We are thrilled to be working with Andrew on an exciting forthcoming book which will launch next spring!

We’re excited to announce that we are working with Dr. Toni Parker, certified Gottman therapist, meditation teacher, psychotherapist, and speaker, on her forthcoming book on how to switch ourselves off autopilot and wake up before we are hit with an unwanted wake-up call.
As a Gottman therapist, Toni provides clinical trainings and teaches workshops on the Art of Science and Love in the U.S. and abroad. She has studied various mind-body modalities, including at Harvard University and other institutions, has trained with world-renowned meditation teachers Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach, and is a certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider. Having been in private practice for more than twenty-five years, providing couples counselling, corporate trainings, and individual and group therapy, Toni has helped many discover their own potential and understand their emotional and compassionate selves, and ultimately, how to lead a more centered and productive life.
Her upcoming book Wake Up Before Your Wake-Up Call expands on her work as a therapist and speaker and will help readers live more meaningful and engaged lives through deeper love, joy, and compassion. It will be released in fall next year.

We’re so pleased to announce that we’re working with Amy Davies on her forthcoming book, A Spark in the Dark: Illuminating your path to a brilliant career in a reorg world, which will launch in May, 2019.
Amy is a professional speaker and trainer who runs The Firefly Group of Companies, providing professional services to enable professionals and organizations to understand, navigate and successfully transact in a reorg world. Her Livingroom Learning courses are designed to help clients and their teams improve their presentation, communication and collaboration skills. Clients engage her in change management initiatives where she is relied upon to help plan for and address the human side of change. Amy also works with select individuals, enabling them to achieve their ultimate professional goals.
Amy is fascinated by people and their collective and individual behavior. Captivated by the state of the corporate world and the people in it, Amy began wondering how professionals achieve fulfilling and successful careers amidst a backdrop of constant flux. Realizing it would take more than hard work, credentials and commitment to advance, she started exploring what it would take to thrive in this reorg world. She set out to answer the question: How do we manage a successful career when we’re constantly losing or changing jobs? Amy’s responses to that question form the basis of her new book, and we can’t wait to help her launch it successfully next year.

The book will be available in the summer of 2019.
