What you'll do

In this one on one session, we will explore the curation principles and passion of the art world and understand how this translates to the online world.

Prior to meeting I will have reviewed your instagram account and made notes on where improvements can be made.

To start we will explore three galleries of the Victoria & Albert Museum. I will explain to you the elements of museum curation and history of the public accessing historical artefacts. We will look at how museums now create stories and experiences that engage and excite, whilst educating and sharing skills.

Next, we will sit down in the members cafe and review your Instagram discussing how you can use this knowledge to curate your account, images and captions.

This is a tailored consultancy session. Following our hands-on experience, I will share with you notes within 72 hours detailing our conversation and recommended steps.

* Guests will need to provide their Instagram handles a min 24 hours prior to the experience for review.

My session with Jessica really expanded my knowledge about how Instagram works, especially the algorithm, and how I can make the best out of my Instagram account. She gave me very useful tips & steps to follow that I will definitely use in the future. Everything was wonderful, the location is so beautiful and Jessica herself is so kind and knowledgeable. I can definitely recommend this experience to anyone who’s interested in this area!

Jessica is knowledgeable, relatable and has a very interesting way of sharing the way to post and art of storytelling. Most of all what I really enjoyed is the way she personalised it and listened and applied how posting online would post for me. The follow up report was exactly what I needed! I would do the experience again because she has so much to share. Worth the experience

She was the one with the red coat. That's how I got to identify her! Jessica is wonderful. I think if there's anything which will stay with me in terms of usefulness in this trip of London its gonna be these two hours i spent with her.  So. V&A was just a very small hors de vouevre, for the much larger repast of how to use Instagram powerfully. And in that Jessica is so good.  I learnt a huge range of things as to what strategies I need to adopt to get a more powerful Instagram account and how to leverage it for my work or as an hobby.. Jessica is very organized. She had come completely prepared with her feedback and her views of my Instagram account - and it was really revelatory.  And it was all done in the tony environs of V&A's Members-only cafe.  Any downside? None really, except don't expect it to be an immersive V&A tour. It is not. V&A is only touched upon conceptually as a launch pad for discussion on Instagram.  And to that extent, its absolutely wonderful. Highly recommended indeed.

I was so impressed with this experience and Jessica the host. It felt liking getting two experiences in one go - visiting the V&A museum (which is one of my favorites in London) and getting a one-to-one coach session with Jessica on my social media channel. Jessica really makes an extra effort to do her homework, and prepare the workshop with me. I got so many takeaways not only for what works but also what I shall not have done. If you are looking for getting the tactics to grow your Instagram channel, do not hesitate, book this one!

I highly recommended this experience to anyone that uses Instagram and wants to develop their understanding of it. I met Jessica at the entrance to the V&A and she showed me round an exhibition. She gave me great insight into how museums are curated and how I can apply these techniques to my own social media. We then went in to the members cafe, which was a real treat as it's such a beautiful space which you normally wouldn't get to see. She then talked me through my Instagram page and highlighted how others view it. She gave me some absolutely golden personalised advice including some quick fixes, short term homework and long term goals.
