Welcome to the GFC

I am thrilled to look back at all our successful events and all our achievements. We started Q3 with a bang when we had the board induction together with our MEC, Ms Mbali Hlophe in Midrand. As the GFC staff, we had a well—deserved outing, where we internally launched our exciting new campaign, Discover Gauteng and had staff training for the enhancement of our organization and our staff. We also visited a few of our favourite soapies and telenovela sets and got to experience the thrill filmmakers get when they tell our African stories. We definitely got to see all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes!
