“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, we've worked with companies to connect and cultivate their audiences leading to larger bottom lines and a more satisfied customer base. In addition our campaigns with non-profit organizations raise hundreds of millions of dollars. We love finding just the right solution to suit our clients needs.
