The Guardian are hosting a live online chat on Friday 11 October 2013 between noon and 2pm on ‘how can councils be more effective online?’

I’m really pleased to have been asked to be a part of the panel during the chat and am looking forward to some good discussion about the challenges and opportunities.

The panel also includes Phil Rumens (West Berkshire and vice chair of Local Gov Digital), Helen Reynolds (Monmouthshire), Sarah Jennings (LGA), Ben Matthews (FutureGov) and a couple of councillors and chief execs as well.

To join on the day or leave a question in advance go to the Guardian website.

Local government and digital not your thing? You can find my words about music on Louder Than War. Or follow me on Twitter for a mix of both.
