Welcome to Tellwell’s Weekly Plog (Photo-Blog)

From plants to planning, old friends to new, this week has been a busy one at Tellwell.

Looking back on Katie’s time with Tellwell

No matter how much we love a place and its people, sometimes we need to make a change. For senior content strategist Katie Beedy, the time has come to say goodbye to us at Tellwell.

So, let’s take a look back over the last five years, celebrate Katie, and remind her she is a kickass writer and strategist as she starts a new adventure.

“My time at Tellwell has taught me to be insatiably curious. If you ask the right questions, you can find an interesting story to tell about anything. I often remind myself that every project has a human behind it, which means it has a heart—you just might have to dig to find it.” 

Katie was also one of the recipients of the YWCA Women of the Year honor in 2023.

“I’d be lying if I didn’t also mention the 50th Annual YWCA Women of the Year event as a highlight. Yes, being a WOTY recipient was an amazing honor, but my favorite part of the evening was getting to see a film that we had created for the YWCA up on the big screen while surrounded by my teammates.”

 Katie even had some advice for her past self: the Katie who started at Tellwell almost five years ago.

“STOP BEING SO SCARED! You are good at what you do and people want you to succeed. If you have an idea or an opinion, share it. If you want something, ask for it. Speak up. Take up space. Kick imposter syndrome to the curb. Listen carefully to the instructions before attempting to ride a Bird scooter.” 

Finally, she wanted to say one more thing.

“I am just so grateful for the experiences I’ve had, the memories I’ve made, and the relationships I’ve formed in my time with Tellwell. So if you have been a part of my Tellwell journey—as a teammate, a client, an interviewee, or otherwise—thank you.”

And we thank YOU, Katie. We can’t wait to see you spread your wings! You have all of our best wishes.

A bloomin’ good time

Emma, Sandie, and I (KJ) had the opportunity to volunteer for Hope Blooms earlier this week. This nonprofit organization takes donated flowers and repurposes them into gorgeous arrangements. Those arrangements are then delivered to those who need some cheer the most. It can be hard to remember that folks in hospitals, long-term care facilities, or cancer treatment centers need moments of joy, too. By bringing them bright flowers, Hope Blooms changes their lives for the better one bouquet at a time.

Even MORE change is coming

Without giving TOO much away, Tellwell is gearing up for a big change. For now, I’ll let you take a peek at Annie and Max pouring over blueprints. What could they be for, I wonder?

Finally, Max, Lucase, Annie, Mindy, and Duncan (with a bonus appearance from Duncan’s wife, Vanessa!) went to Creative Mornings this week.

They got to hear from Justin Morken on the theme of “Rise.” They took away so many nuggets of wisdom related to creating freely, giving generously, and embracing the divine spark that inspires us to be creative.

That’s all for this week!
