I gave a talk on Friday 27th September as part of the Open Data Institute’s programme of ODI Friday lectures. Slightly early for International Right to Know Day (which it was on Saturday), I spoke about the importance of FOI Officers to successful implementation and improvement of FOI and transparency initiatives. You can watch my presentation on YouTube on the Open Data Institute’s channel.

I refer in the talk to my book. If you want to know more about The Freedom of Information Officer’s Handbook, I have set up a new page where you can access details of the book including a free chapter (and a discount on the cover price of the book), the video above and more.

There are also lots of other free resources under the Resources tab above.
