I have read many books on sales, circles of influence and networking, but this is the first that didn't drown me in rhetoric before giving me a few precious chunks of wisdom.
This book is all wisdom, all the time, and I thought it was a great use of my energy to read it.
It is obvious Ms. DeNucci does a great deal of networking and "walking the walk," because this book was well thought out and interesting to read with anecdotes that will resonate with anyone attempting to improve their skills.
Most importantly, to those of us with more interest than time; Ms. DeNucci gets to the point and always includes short lists of strategies that work. I recommend this book to anyone who has a passion, a cause, a product or business to promote, or simply wants to communicate with friends and family more constructively. - Kali' Rourke, Austin, Texas

I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Intentional Networker: Attracting Powerful Relationships, Referrals & Results In Business. I even took my time in doing so because I wanted to fully absorb all of the wonderful advice and frank talk Patti delivers. I think everyone can benefit from reading the book -- whether they are currently on the job hunt or not. These are life lessons, and they are lessons that precious few people have mastered.

Networking is hard. I know. Two years ago, I ventured out on my own as a communications/public relations consultant and had to learn how to network. I wish I had access to a book such as this when I began that journey. I live in Austin -- where Patti is based. I had heard of her but never had the opportunity to meet her or see one of her presentations on networking. When I finally did have that opportunity last year, I was blown away and found myself furiously scribbling down the tips she offered. More recently, she discussed this book at a meeting of the Austin chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators. Again, I was blown away and couldn't wait to read the book. It has not disappointed.

In this book, she covers everything from determining and building your personal brand to how to cultivate long-lasting business relationships. She also offers advice on how to say "no" when faced with an opportunity that isn't the right fit for you or that won't move you closer to your goals. I have a close friend -- who runs her own consulting business -- recently ask me for advice on what to say to a former client who kept trying to get free advice from her.

Patti DeNucci does more than offer you brilliant strategies and tips on networking in her book. She gets to the heart of building business and personal relationships: being mindful in every project and with every contact. As an experienced networker, I appreciate how she embeds her techniques in authenticity, ethical behavior, and purpose.

Both the inexperienced and experienced networker will find this book useful. It is quick and clear reading, with plenty of practical exercises and thought provokers. A key focus is the 80/20 principle, getting 80 percent of your results from 20 percent of your efforts. Applying the principle to relationships and networking, this principle, DeNucci makes business connections more meaningful--and productive. She also helps you find "your people," the trusted and competent people you want to work with, who truly understand that networking means you must give as well as receive. You will find tips for banishing time wasters and toxic situations and people, and you will learn how to select and leverage events and opportunities that align with your goals. You will get advice on how to get feedback about your services and referrals as well as how to build and continually update your database of contacts.

The Intentional Networker explores how to manage difficult situations and people with grace and professionalism. DeNucci's approach to creating policies and boundaries around relationship building is just plain stellar.

What I love about this book is that it emanates from a successful, respected networker who understands that networking isn't just about sales. DeNucci does not equate herself with an elevator speech, nor does she see branding a panacea for building a business or making lasting partnerships.

I have to admit I've often felt a little intimidated by networking. Let's face it, walking into a room full of strangers, armed with a fist full of business cards can feel awkward. I often attended these events without any real clarity on what I was trying to accomplish; but The Intentional Networker by Patti DeNucci has not only given me a game plan but also given me a new set of tools to define & refine who I am and what I want,(vision, intention & goals). Patti DeNucci also gives great advice on how to handle what happens AFTER the networking event is over. How to establish boundaries & policies that protect you from giving away all your resources for free.... for the sake of networking. The bottom line... it's QUALITY vs QUANTITY when it comes to networking, building and nurturing relationships with "your people" and ultimately having the business and life you desire. I highly recommend The Intentional Networker! - Cynthia Marshall, Austin TX
