Hi, here are the details of the second QS Tokyo Show & Tell meetup.
There will be three speakers and two reporters. Some will give a speech in English and others will use Japanese. However, all slides will be in English. Some audience members only speak English or Japanese, so don’t feel uneasy about joining. Whatever language you use, we’ll be happy to share our thoughts.
Please take a look at a short report about our 1st meeting (in Japanese).
Since we will meet at CyberAgent HQ during the weekend, participants should register on our Meetup page. Please RSVP if you have not done so yet.
Place: CyberAgent HQ in Shibuya Markcity West (17F) map
Date: 10/20/2012 Sat 2PM to 4PM
