This week on InTransition David speaks with Kanchan Dutt, Director of Media, Digital and Design Communications at the Australian Bureau of Statistics. Originally from the UK and with a background in journalism, Kanchan has been in the Australian public service for around a decade now, moving from the ACT government and community services into the federal statistics agency. As a self-described “dutiful public servant”, Kanchan’s experience has equipped him with countless valuable insights, some of which he shares with David in this episode of InTransition. They include:
* The growing importance of story telling;
* Why meeting people face-to-face is the key to communication success;
* How to effectively reach reporters and relay the story you want told; and
* That ABS census debacle.
Tune in for the whole chat.
