Untold has a new home. This isn't it*. We're still trying to find the perfect cabinet for all our awards 😉 but we'll share a picture once we're settled in. Talking of awards 🏆 we've been nominated 😊 for some so we'll be sharing details of how to vote for us soon 🙏🏼 *This beauty is actually Beamish Hall in County Durham part of our client Best Western's group of hotels.
I am a HUGE believer that sharing our personal journeys of the trials and tribulations we’ve had to face and overcome is what will inspire others to keep going on their own journey. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You may think your story isn’t newsworthy, special or will make a difference but that couldn’t be further from the truth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Your story MATTERS! 🙌🏽💖☺️ And you know who’s a MASTER STORYTELLER? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My friend April from @lightbeamers 💁🏽♀️👩🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Last year she taught me how I could effectively craft and share my own story with my audience to make stronger heartfelt connections with them and it’s helped me so much! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Right now she’s hosting an awesome challenge called “21 Days, 21 Ways” to help you learn how to tell your story every single day via FB live ☺️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Go have a look at her profile to check her out! 😇💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Oh and don’t forget that in my own tribe we’re sharing the journey together this week of facing our fears to create a successful 2018! See my IG story for more or click on the link in my bio😉
"La información es poderosa, pero es la forma en que la usamos la que nos definirá". - es una de esas citas que tiene el potencial de cambiar tu vida, es decir, si la usas. ¿Cuál es el poder de la informática si no es para llevar la sabiduría milenaria de una pequeña aldea de Kenia a mi pantalla en el centro de Londres? Me encanta cómo Google nos conecta a todos. #Google#Conecta#storytelling101#pcsd#itla#latergram#regram#search#connect

Untold are off to spend Christmas with friends and families and will no doubt swap stories around a fire or two. This cosy hearth is from @beamish_museum the open-air museum in County Durham home to reconstructions of British architecture and interiors from the last two centuries. Visitors are transported to the past as you wander its cobbled street. A past where storytelling provided entertainment and conveyed news and history. Nothing changes. People still love to share a good story.
A short four hours later we pulled into the resort under mount Kilimanjaro! We only caught a glimpse of the mountain, I guess it’s pretty standard not to see it for a while, but it was enough to impress us with its size.
The Resort consisted of an entry hall and dining room surrounded by lots of cute little huts that we’re going to be our rooms tonight!
Paths lead between all of these and little signs marked where you were and which where everything was in relation to you. One of the signs read “Hemingway’s Bar” and being big Ernest Hemingway fans we have course had to visit. Turns out he spent some time in this area and wrote some about it, as a writer happens to do. This shot is from the basement of his bar which is where we hung out until the driver came to get us to go see some amidols!
Imagine a valley that would fit into 1 square mile. Now fill it with tin shacks and 1 million people. We visited the organization where our friend works, a tower of concrete rising from a sea of rust and tin.
It is half school and half office, providing a place for the kids of the valley to learn and perhaps move up in the world.
We took a walk into the slums, guided of course, to see everyday life on the ground. Walking through the tin smells like a trash compactor. Sewage runs open in the street as do small children, this is their drinking water. A crowd of kids followed us down the road holding our sands and wanting to touch our “mizungu” skin.

We love our amazing clients and sharing the stories that help them build lasting and loyal relationships with their customers. Here at Untold Agency we understand how the art of storytelling works in a changing digital landscape. We know that shifting search and social algorithms mean brands need great content at the heart of their marketing offering. Uncovering, creating and sharing those stories - that’s what we do best. OK, it isn't always as easy as we might make it look in these squares (it's not all food, drink and exotic travel), but we do have some adventures along the way. And the odd beer...
Hold the smashed avo on sprouted rye. Sri Lankan egg hoppers with pickles and sambol for breakfast are the 💣 Now we'd better get on with bringing brands to life through great storytelling #startthedaywithanegg 🍳
Back in the office today. We don't work anywhere without tapestries, chandeliers and parquet floors. Just kidding. This is Hluboka Castle in South Bohemia. Great for stories; not so great for hot-desking.
A tram is one of the only methods of transport we haven't taken in the last 48 hours. We've travelled in taxis, planes, travelators, cars, a lorry, the Eurostar and the underground. All for a great story. #UntoldStories
In the name of great #storytelling today we're on a road trip. Our hire car looks a lot like this 👉🏼 🚗. which is doing the job but not nearly so opulent as the carriage this chap adorns. We're making our way across Europe today and tomorrow following the story of a precious cargo. We'll back to HQ for a day then onto to @trumanbrewery for the Beer and Marketing awards on Thursday night. Lucky we've got the next 24 hours in a car to practice our 'surprised acceptance faces' and our 'it's totally fine we're cool with not winning faces'.
It's good to be a specialist. Whether it's using your senses to find the ocean or curating stories it's always best to do what you excel at. We help brands tell their most interesting stories and share them with social and PR. #UntoldStories
We could probably have produced a series of content just about this quarry; its origins, the beauty of the rock it gives up, the Romans who would have marched by in the 2nd century. It was actually captured, but not used, for another story of the local area but it goes to show there are stories everywhere. You just have to know how to tell them. #UntoldStories
Ready for the weekend? This week at Untold we've worked on a magazine layout, held a press and influencer event, written monthly reports, edited upcoming videos, worked on a 2018 content plans, hired a new team member and more. Time to recharge our batteries (and props to one of our directors who's got a relaxing weekend of solo childcare lined up... 😬) Have a good one everyone 👍🏼 #UntoldStories
The way through the woods. These pines overlook Bassenthwaite Lake the breeding ground for a handful of Osprey that we had the opportunity to watch when creating stories for an independent hotel group. If only we had wings then we wouldn't be negotiating today's engineering works on our way across the country 😬 #UntoldStories
My posts are ONLY for those who have clear minds and understanding...😉
No need for me to explain what my photo mean and what is written on it. If you can't understand, leave it! I hate explaining that's why I forbid teaching. .
PS: Sorry Dragon and Egg if i used your photos to illustrate what i wanna convey...😉 😅👊 #randomthoughts#outoftheblue#goodwriting#storytelling101
