What people say

Scott is high energy, business in focus but warm of heart… He truly understands the significance and art of storytelling… and can be an asset to any organization looking to develop creative new funding strategies.

Dan is the best at what he does: Taking “old school” marketing types like me and comfortably and effectively introducing us to the “new media”. I have had the privilege to be on a podcast with Dan and was amazed when I started getting feedback from friends of mine from around the world!

Dan’s insight and expertise has given us clear direction on how to best integrate new media into our marketing mix. The bottom line was maximum exposure at the lowest possible cost, not to mention that the new media landscape is a lot of fun to dive into. Despite being a hilarious guy, a great friend, and a walking encyclopedia of pop-culture, Dan’s knowledge of new media is astounding. The principles he has shared with us has made new media the primary vehicle for which we promote our films.

Dan is a friend to everyone, especially to those in the sometimes-scary, sometimes-lonely nonprofit world. He manages to blend sincerity, fun and professionalism in a way that is rare and refreshing.

About the presenters

Dan Portnoy

Dan is the author of The Nonprofit Narrative: How Stories Can Save the World. He loves helping passionate people strive for the impossible and on several occasions he’s seen it happen.

For over a decade, Dan has worked with the toughest outposts of Fortune 500 companies to get them back on track and with big results. He is sought after to help flesh out business ideas, coach teams and lead senior staff through the digital age.

In 2006, he started The Portnoy Media Group to help nonprofits, companies and organizations better tell their stories for impact and engagement. His communication strategies have helped multiple nonprofit organizations double their online donations year over year and raise millions. Dan’s cultivation of story ideas builds community, engages the free radicals and removes the barriers between traditional cultivation and acquisition.

He’s been a producer and a director for multiple projects, including The Great American Road Trip, a five part miniseries documentary/reality show. He is the founder, editor-in-chief and host of The Drop, a music podcast that features interviews with artists and bands on the rise.
