AFP Patti DeNucci

Patti DeNucci works with motivated people who want to network better, not just more, so they can become more respected, connected, and successful.  Her award-winning book "The Intentional Networker: Attracting Powerful Relationships, Referrals & Results in Business" has become a go-to field guide for thousands of leaders in many business and non-profit sectors. 

Patti is a veteran of the TEDx stage and has presented to organizations such as  Microsoft, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Rodan + Fields, Worth of New York, PayPal, A+ Federal Credit Union, Silicon Valley National Bank, the Texas Conference for Women, the Society for Government Meeting Planners, and many others.

Patti grew up in a family business in Minnesota, seeing first hand how important networking and relationships are to keeping the doors open and the bottom line growing.  Upon moving to Texas, she enjoyed successful careers in retail, marketing communications, and talent management and has owned her own business since 1989.

She is the founder of Freelance Austin and has offered her time, expertise and ideas to numerous boards, leadership teams, and steering committees for non-profit organizations and associations.  The lessons Patti shares come from her many work and life experiences, her extensive reading and research, and the connections and conversations she has enjoyed with brilliant people from many sectors and industries.
