“If a story is not about the hearer, he will not listen. And here I make a rule—a great and interesting story is about everyone or it will not last.”




Portnoy Media was started in 2006 as a R&D lab for experiments in communication and engagement. Since that time, our experiments have connected and cultivated audiences for our clients.
