If the answer is 'yes' then I'm 100% sure you should reserve a seat at Runway East in Moorgate, London on Tue Aug 8th at 6pm.  As usual you're going to get hands learning some valuable skills whilst networking with a great community of entrepreneurs, professionals, investors, mentors and executives.

More Info:

Why does Instagram/Snapchat Stories matter? 
The introduction of Instagram 'Stories’ 12 months ago broke Snapchat's hold on the vertical video storytelling format that Snapchat themselves invented.  Instagram Stories currently has over 200 million daily active users and is growing rapidly.  Snapchat has 165 million daily active users. What this means is that the people that you want to connect with are probably using it or will be soon enough. The short of it is if you want to build reletionships that matter on Instagram/Snapchat then improving your 'Stories; game is essential. (Btw if you have no idea what I am taking about then you might want to read a blog post I've written about this topic before signing up to attend :)

Yes amazingly it is.

Is this a 'hands on' event? 
Yes! Very. I get you hands on very quickly as I believe its the best way to learn…by doing.
