“It is great working with such a personable and professional copywriter who understands our business and services. Stacey Stein has helped our company write numerous compelling member stories, blog articles, newsletters and re-wrote all of our Marketing and Sales collateral content.

- Bella Patel, Marketing Manager, Best Doctors Canada, Inc.
“Plan Canada hired Stacey Stein to assist us with the development of our Planned Giving and Endowment collateral in November 2013. After assessing several consultants I found Stacey to be the most suited for this role because of her significant experience and can-do attitude.
After working closely with her for over six months, I can attest that she was indeed the best candidate for the job. The lead-up to the project involved considerable orientation and on-boarding and also required that Stacey spend her own time researching and reviewing Plan’s mandate, programs and policies. Stacey’s thoroughness in this area was evident in her first draft. All of her deliverables were impeccable, further edits and revisions were immaculately addressed, and all deadlines were punctually met. Rewrites and redirection initiated by Plan were met promptly and with professionalism. I also noted that Stacey adapts her work style to best suit the client’s needs. In my 15 years of working with writers in this sector, I have not come across a consultant with the level of competence, expertise and professionalism that Stacey brings.”
- Aruna Aysola, Manager, Planned Giving, Plan Canada
“Stacey is quick on the draw. A fast learner, she picked up on a challenging and unique copy writing process and completed weekly assignments efficiently and professionally. Easy to work with and quick to respond, I enjoy working with Stacey and recommend her for any writing, communications or editing project.”
- Lisa Tabachnick, Former Senior Copy Editor, RR Donnelley
“We engaged Ms. Stein’s services to help us develop our communication strategy for a new area of our business. Stacey’s unique ability to probe the right questions kept us focused, moved the project forward, and provided us with the results we were looking for, while making the entire process very enjoyable and effortless for us. What impressed me the most about Stacey was her ability to fully grasp the complexity of our business and truly understand what it was that we needed. Stacey then used her considerable research skills to do a full market analysis of our competitive environment to provide us with the distinctive edge we were seeking. Working with Ms. Stein was a tremendously positive experience for us and we would not hesitate to employ her services again or recommend her to others.”
- Hamid Sodeifi, VP Operations, Origo Communications
“It was a pleasure working with Stacey on our project – she understood our desires and proposed thoughtful, insightful solutions. With a tight time frame Stacey delivered outstanding materials which met our needs as a client. It was a pleasure working with her.”
- Eric Petersiel, Head of School, The Leo Baeck Day School
“Stacey is a wonderful writer. She is able to assimilate complex ideas and mold them into communication which effectively sends the intended message. Stacey is also a pleasure to work with in the process.”
- Steven Shulman, Campaign Director & Counsel, UJA
“As the Editorial Director and senior writer for UJA Federation of Greater Toronto, I can honestly say that in my almost 12 years there, no other writer/editor has come close to matching Stacey’s talent, dedication, and rare ability to retain her focus and professionalism when multiple – and often chaotic – deadlines approached. Stacey’s ability to turn around projects as both a writer and a marketing manager quickly made her a vital part of UJA Federation’s success, helping the organization raise approximately $60 million during her tenure there. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire Stacey to take care of my writing and editing needs.”
- Dan Horowitz, Editorial Director/Senior Writer, UJA Federation of Greater Toronto
