Meet Stuart Foxman
Under the Foxman Communications banner, Stuart Foxman has been helping clients to meet their communications needs since 1988. As a freelance writer, Stuart shares the sentiment of a longtime newspaper columnist named Sydney Harris. “The words ‘information’ and ‘communication’ are often used interchangeably, but they signify quite different things,” wrote Harris. “Information is giving out; communication is getting through.”
Stuart earned a Bachelor of Journalism degree from Carleton University in Ottawa, and began his writing career as a copywriter with Tourism Canada’s public affairs group. He later joined the creative team of an Ottawa PR firm, working on federal government accounts.
Since opening Foxman Communications in Toronto, Stuart has worked with 150-plus clients, serving as a trusted writing resource to their communications teams. This includes many of Canada’s leading corporations, public sector and not-for-profit organizations, and associations. Some of Canada’s top ad, PR, design, branding and direct marketing firms have also relied on Stuart’s writing talents to help them serve their clients.
Stuart has published hundreds of articles under his byline in numerous consumer and trade publications, including Reader’s Digest, Strategy, Playback, Profit and the Globe & Mail. He has written dozens of other articles on behalf of clients, which have also appeared in publications across Canada.
In addition to carrying out his corporate communications work, Stuart has co-authored three books. Time of Their Lives: The Dionne Tragedy, a revealing look at the early years of the Dionne Quintuplets, was called “a spellbinder” by the Toronto Star, and “searing…compelling” by the Ottawa Citizen. The book was adapted into an award-winning CBC/CBS mini-series called Million Dollar Babies. Stuart also contributed to Mississauga: City of Excellence and was the principal writer on Mississauga: Building on Excellence. “Foxman’s manuscript is full of extraordinary, eye opening facts about this fascinating city”, said the Mississauga Board of Trade.
Stuart is a member of the International Association of Business Communicators.
