She exudes professionalism in her presentation and with your attendees. Her ability to connect with an audience and make you feel like a friend is truly amazing. I had the privilege to plan this conference, and it should be noted that she is an absolute joy to work with as well. I highly recommend Patti for any group of professionals.”

– Theresa Campos, Society of Government Meeting Planners, Lone Star Chapter

“I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation on Courageous Conversations. Your comments and questionnaire was exactly what I needed for future conversations. I am an introvert who has learned to be an extrovert in certain situations.  Your presentation helped me identify at times what stops me – in particular fear, social anxiety – from having good conversations and reverting back to the safety of being an introvert.  I’ve learned being myself (optimistic, grateful, caring) and purposing in my heart to speak a positive mindset each day makes a big difference and dictates how well my conversations goes with others.  [Your presentation] …helped kindle a continued enthusiasm for my profession in Project Management and how I connect through conversation.”
– Sandra Jackson, PMP, Vice President of Professional Development, PMI Austin

What people are saying about the book:

The information is so good, so well described, so valuable…I couldn’t help but think of Malcolm Gladwell’s Blink / Tipping Point when reading this.
– Judges for the 2012 Benjamin Franklin Awards – The Bill Fisher Award for Best First Book – Non-fiction

“…an easy to follow, positive life-strategy book for anybody who needs to deal with people, from the business executive to the freelance consultant to a teacher or a parent on a PTA board.”
– Maya Fleishmann, reviewer for IndieReader

“Well thought out and presented tips and strategies on networking make this book a valuable addition in virtually any business situation.”
– Review from 23rd Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards

“The Intentional Networker is a must-read for any freelancer or solo professional. Patti DeNucci has done an amazing job of addressing this issue in a very graceful and thought-provoking way. It’s packed with real-world, ‘doable’ advice for real people who aren’t necessarily natural-born networkers. If you’ve struggled to find an approach that’s true to your character and enables you to connect with others in a very authentic way, look no further. This is your book!”
– Ed Gandia, co-founder of International Freelancers Academy and co-author of The Wealthy Freelancer

“The Intentional Networker:  There’s always more to learn, especially when it comes to the “N” word (networking!). Author Patti DeNucci has been teaching her intentional networking strategies for over twenty-five years. Her easy-to-follow handbook provides a positive life-strategy for anyone who needs to deal with people…in other words, just about everyone!”
– One Thing New: Smart Reads for Busy Women

“I discovered Patti DeNucci’s The Intentional Networker at just the right time! As a speaker and author myself, I find that I am often in situations where opportunities ultimately slip by due to my inability to think on my feet at the right moment. In fact, surprisingly I find myself somewhat introverted when it comes to offline networking, so I tend to avoid it. Patti’s book gave me clear and concise steps I can take each and every time I am amid others who may be a source of referrals, sales or simply friendships. From when and how to begin conversations or even how to say “no” or handle requests for “meeting for coffee,” to learning how to truly discern which networking events are worthwhile, I now feel fully equipped and in fact cannot wait for the next networking opportunity! Thanks for your valuable and practical advice, Patti.”
Karen Clark,
Author, Social Media for Direct Selling, www.MyBusinessPresence.com

─ Jan Goss, corporate etiquette and international protocol consultant and author of Protocol Power: 21 Days to Professional Polish

My ah-ha insight came in the chapter about etiquette. I felt empowered by your guidance here; being intentional really comes down to being graceful, thoughtful, kind and polite. In networking situations where you are being pulled in a dozen directions, coming back to these principles makes the whole experience less tiring and challenging.”
