About us

So, how did this whole Chat’r thing come to be? It all started back in 2013 when the Chat’r (pronounced ‘chatter,’ in case you missed it) idea was born. And right from the get-go, we set our sights on becoming a 100% independent, proudly South African integrated communication studio.

Our reach? To begin with, we’ve got Jozi (that’s slang for Johannesburg) and the rest of South Africa covered, and we’re extending our awesomeness across the entire African continent. Ultimately, we’ll be captivating clients worldwide, one epic Xperience (that’s a Chat’r Xperience) at a time.

Our crew is small but boasts over 60 years of combined experience. With this in mind, we’re swift, efficient, and always ready to rock your world. So in a nutshell – we’ve got the agility of a ninja, combined with the impact of a meteor strike. But don’t let our funky approach fool you – we get stuff done, like you want it, when you want it.

So, let’s get chatty, coz (text abbreviation for ‘because’) at Chat’r, we’re all about turning events into legenwait for itdary stories and brands into unforgettable experiences.

"Your role has been as a turnkey solution provider, from initiating the plans to implementing the details. You take pride in your work, your creative concepts, and project managing each step, which gives SA Tourism great confidence in the end result. In summary, you’ve been a preferred service provider, simply because you deliver - with great work, on budget and on time. It’s a rare pleasure to work with people you enjoy, people who share the same work ethic, are forward-thinking, understand our business needs and are competitively priced in the industry. You’re hard working and always go the extra mile. Your leadership has always been hands-on, which I strongly believe makes all the difference. I’d highly recommend John and the Chat’r Team to any organisation, and any prospective company looking for a service provider that delivers an excellent service time and time again!"
