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 insights he shares with David in this episode of InTransition, such as:

* 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.
