One of our newer clients, World Animal Protection, is currently running a super smart campaign aimed at Instagram. The campaign is all about “wildlife selfies” or pictures tourists take, at the urging of the wildlife tour operator, of them with animals that they think are wild, but are really living captive lives in horrifically cruel […]

Here’s what a few of our recent clients have to say about working with the Story | Stiles team:
Hands-on media training
Our lawyers found the hands-on media training that Story | Stiles custom built and delivered for us to be a valuable resource for for cutting to the chase on what matters in a case.
New ideas we hadn’t thought to explore
Story | Stiles was quick to capture what we needed and to highlight new ideas we hadn’t thought to explore. The tools she developed for us were great models for our members for the present campaign and for future ones.
An asset for ACTRA
Story | Stiles has been an asset for ACTRA Toronto over the past couple of years. On government relations and communications projects, they have helped us be more effective because they understand our members and the industry, what we want to say, and how we want to say it.
An incredibly positive experience
Working with Story | Stiles was an incredibly positive experience. Their willingness to meet our very tight timelines and knowledge of how to bring strong advocacy messaging together to tell a great story with our content made for a fantastic, collaborative experience. We can’t wait for our next project!
Provided invaluable professional coaching
The Story | Stiles team provided invaluable professional coaching to our Board of Directors on message development and public speaking. We found their workshops to be grounded in the wealth of real-world experience they have attained working in the public sector, with trade unions, and in elected politics. With instruction tailored and delivered to meet our needs – our leadership continues to rely on the tools, advice and skill sets provided us.
Lobbying. The word that describes talking about your issues with government decision-makers. This word is often equated with scandal and bad judgment by governments and practitioners alike. But lobbying can have tremendous value for organizations who are seeking social or environmental change. So if it means you’ll keep reading, let’s call it public affairs or […]
I watched the first Clinton-Trump show-down not with family, friends or like-minded politicos but — as I was providing commentary on Toronto’s CP24 — with the former Ontario Conservative Leader and the Editor-in-Chief of the Toronto Sun. Let me tell you, it was interesting to see the debate unfold through a right-of-centre lens. I’m not sure that […]
I worked for many years for a union of performers. Voice performers. Video game performers. Film and television performers. Stunt performers. Actors. Spending time with professional performers taught me a lot (and not just how to project). They are listeners, observers of life. And they are also professionals who know how to rehearse and […]
I’ve been thinking a lot about debates lately. On August 6 from 8 – 10pm ET, federal party leaders will get their first kick at the can in the Maclean’s Debate, airing on Rogers stations and CPAC, where I’ll be providing commentary from ‘The Left’. Whether or not Canadians abandon their BBQs to tune in […]
