A look inside GovChat's headquarters
The GovChat headquarters are located in Cape Town at Speakers Corner within short walking distance to the Parliament of South Africa. These premises have been designed to create a tangible and physical space where critical face to face conversations and debate is facilitated between participants from government, private sector, civil society and citizens. Furthermore, the headquarters use its media wall to showcase its trending activity, data outputs and emerging platform features and where relevant, integrate these outcomes into critical-topic discussions.
Since the opening of the Headquarters in October 2019, GovChat has facilitated a number of high-level Round Table talks, Live Streaming Parliamentary events, workshops/training and user testing sessions.
The relevance of conversations and high-level delegation attendance at the various round tables and more intimate functions have attracted the participation of a number of corporate and other organisation leaders. As such, GovChat has developed strong relationships and collaborations with both global and local organisations and corporates, which in many instances, has resulted in formalised partnerships in the pursuit of one or many of GovChat's underlying objectives.
