STORY22 shortlisted for two prestigious awards

Since our inception in early 2020, STORY22 has been on a mission to help businesses create meaningful connections with their customers through the power of storytelling.

Our journey began with a simple yet profound idea: every business has a unique story waiting to be told. We’ve had the privilege of assisting hundreds of businesses in discovering their authentic brand narratives, enabling them to resonate more deeply with their audience.

Our own growth story has been fuelled by a genuine hunger among businesses for a compelling brand narrative that supercharges their marketing efforts. We’ve been fortunate to witness their success as they communicate their value more effectively to customers, and it’s this shared journey that continues to drive us forward.

One of the highlights of our journey has been our collaboration with the StoryBrand team during their inaugural Live Workshop in London. Additionally, we’ve proudly partnered with local charities, helping them clarify their brand messages to make a positive impact on their communities. Our dedication to our clients, both new and existing, has always been at the forefront of our work as we guide them in harnessing the StoryBrand Framework to enhance their marketing strategies.

In our commitment to fostering talent and supporting the next generation of marketing professionals, we’ve expanded our team through initiatives such as the University of Kent’s Employability Points Scheme and the Working Knowledge Digital Marketing Apprentice Academy. These initiatives have not only brought fresh perspectives to our agency but have also provided exciting opportunities for young talents to thrive in the world of marketing.

Today, we are thrilled and honoured to announce our shortlisting for two prestigious awards. The Growing Business Awards have recognised STORY22 as a finalist in the Micro Business of the Year category, and the B2B Business of the Year (Medium) category. These nominations acknowledge the hard work and dedication of our team, and we are humbled to be considered alongside remarkable businesses in our industry.

Julie, co-founder of STORY22, said: “We are thrilled to be shortlisted for the Growing Business Awards for a second year in a row, especially considering the incredible businesses also shortlisted. This is a great event, with a wonderful community around it that we are proud to be a part of. We are looking forward to having the opportunity to celebrate with the other finalists again this year.”

In addition, STORY22 has been recognised as a finalist in the Creative Entrepreneur of the Year category in the South East at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards. This accolade shines a spotlight on our creative process, intellectual property, and unwavering commitment to innovative storytelling.

Sonya Whittam, co-founder of STORY22, expressed her gratitude: “We are incredibly honoured to be shortlisted in the Creative Entrepreneur of the Year category in the Great British Entrepreneur Awards. This is a testament to the hard work and creativity of our team. We are excited to continue our journey of innovation and storytelling excellence, inspiring both clients and fellow entrepreneurs to embrace the power of story in shaping the future of marketing.”
