It's all about communication
It seems like communication and emerging technologies are pretty far apart. But they aren't. New technology is all about communicating in different ways.
The essence of communication never changes: clarity, brevity, directly, passionately. Put the right message in front of the right people when they are ready and able to receive and act on it.
Businesses have many customers — those who walk in the door and those who work the doors. We help you use all the tools across today's digital landscape to communicate with your customers and staff.
We are thrilled to work with such a dynamic and diverse group of businesses and individuals. Click on the image to see how we are working with each of these clients.
What our clients say about us
Laura Haight has been a reliable, creative, successful media relations consultant for our company, Clemson Eye and Spectrum Lasik. She is well connected in the press industry and able to utilize her network to promote our eye care business. Laura has facilitated the publication of many exciting stories about medical innovations at Clemson Eye and Spectrum Lasik. Our goal was to increase our brand awareness in the Upstate, particularly Greenville and to that end, Laura has been a huge asset. I would highly recommend her services.
Mary Louise Parisi, CEO, Clemson Eye
Laura Haight's company conducted a Bizsafe financial and technology audit for my company last year - they did an excellent job meeting with every individual to review processes to ensure we were "safe" while also educating my staff for potential issues that could arise in the future. I highly recommend them to any growing business that wants to ensure they have proper measures in place to prevent fraud and data breaches!
Paula Fulgum, Chief Innovator/President, Innovate HR
Laura continually demonstrates the ability to not just grasp the concepts herself, but to understand their significance and to explain to the business reader in practical terms why he should care and what he can do about them. She’s also one of the best writers I’ve worked with — her copy is sharp, witty, intelligent and engaging. She is an editor’s dream — reliable, communicative, easy to work with and always nailing those deadlines. But as much as I enjoy working with her as an editor, I value her work even more as a reader. I’m not exaggerating: Putting Laura Haight’s byline in a publication makes it that much more indispensable.
Jerry Salley, Managing Editor, Community Journals
Laura is amazingly astute at using technology to maximize an organization's message. During her tenure at Dining for Women, she elevated our communications to the next level, on every level: from our newsletter, to web analytics, to supervising the creation and launch of a new website. She launched an online Dining for Women magazine and planned and executed our social media strategy. In addition to being a great technologist, Laura is a fantastic writer and editor. Our interactive 2014 Annual Report received rave reviews!
Marsha Wallace, co-founder, Dining for Women
Within an hour of my last meeting with Laura I was being interviewed by the Greenville News and writing an op-ed piece for the Greenville Journal. Laura is extremely knowledgable in the area of communications and media relations and really gets the results you need.
Kelly Wessel, President, Wessel Accounting
Laura is excellent at utilizing her knowledge and experience to develop and put a powerful multi-faceted communications strategy into motion. She excels at working with a diverse group of colleagues and manages to meet their communications needs both expeditiously and at a high level of quality. In a short period of time Laura has made tremendous positive impact on our organization.
Jamye Cooper, Executive Director, Haywood (NC) Habitat for Humanity
Laura has been a spectacular partner in helping us navigate and gain exposure in the media and marketplace as we have grown our various corporate brands over the past year. I look forward to continuing to work with her as each of our companies grow.
Trevor Gordon, CEO, Sandlapper Securities
Working with Laura Haight of Portfolio has brought me to a new and better place in my internet presence. She responds to my questions quickly and offers innovative ideas for me to consider. Although my website re-design is complete I plan to continue working with Laura to grow, learn and stay on the cutting edge in my internet communication to my patients, followers and potential patients.
Dr. Cynthia Horner, Chiropractor
My first public Beckinar was a success largely due to the efforts of Laura Haight and Portfolio. She is the guru behind the scenes: From brainstorming to working with service providers to writing promotion materials to actually moderating the webinars, she is my go-to-gal. I continue to be amazed by her work ethic, results, and ideas. I have the content, but Laura and Portfolio make me look good! And now I am building a library of on-demand webinars that will generate revenue for years. If your company uses webinars - or knows they should - you cannot go wrong with Portfolio. Tell them Becky sent you.
Becky McCrary, Certified Public Speaker
Laura Haight has emerged as key to the successful webinar program at University Business and District Administration magazines. As the producer of these events, Laura brings excellent organizational and communication skills. Her extraordinary attention to detail has helped us avoid many problems, and her proficiency with technology has helped us streamline operations. She is highly responsive and attentive to client needs, and always goes "above and beyond" to provide exemplary service.

Working with Portfolio was a rewarding experience. Laura and Pete helped create the creative flow of a recent chamber directory we worked on for our client. The process was very complete and helped us work through design, layout, presentation and even the design of the cover. We are very pleased with the one-on-one attention they gave us and plan to repeat working with Portfolio in 2012.
Tom Spargur, General Manager/Publisher,
The Culpeper Star-Exponent
We have used WebEx for years for sales and training. Using Portfolio to manage our presentation elevated us to a whole new level. From the session setup and e-mail invites, to the introduction and handling of questions, it gave us the extra edge of professionalism that I see with Fortune 500 companies.
Dean Kasparian, Chief Market Analyst
Stravolo Wealth Management
Laura has assisted with the content for several of our projects including web copy, press releases, biographies and event announcement/invitations. Every time I read what she puts together for us I am impressed with the clarity and the conciseness of the message. She is truly gifted in this field and will be the first and only person I ask to assist with any copy needs I may have.”
Danielle Cuddie, Owner
Velocity Design Group and Principal at Entrepreneur's Forum
Laura Haight has helped create and mold our presence and image within the market place. She has created a keen interest from several news and reporting agencies. Our company trusted her with all media relations and we are thrilled with the results. We have since used her skills for awareness campaigns with a few of our different business groups and all have received positive results. Laura Haight and all representatives from Portfolio have always been on time and on budget with their projects for our company. I recommend them without hesitation and continue to use them for our business marketing campaigns.
Eric Bergelson, CEO, Dynamic Global Sales, LLC
I have the privilege of working with Laura as a member of the Entrepreneur Forum Board of advisers where she serves as the Chair of the Resource Community. I have come to know Laura as a thorough and professional resource who brings sound advice, excellent skills, energy, enthusiasm and humor to our team. We benefit from her involvement at the Forum and I highly recommend her.
