Patti’s first book The Intentional Networker: Attracting Powerful Relationships, Referrals& Results in Business, is a substantive, yet easy-to-read field guide that offers readers fresh, proven strategies and tips for attracting and building valuable connections and relationships with greater purpose, polish, presence, and productivity. “The world needed a book about how to network better rather than more,” Patti says.
Shortly after it was published The Intentional Networker was named a Finalist in ForeWord Review’s Book of the Year competition and swept the entire non-fiction category in the IndieDiscovery awards.
