meet the founder
I am … firstly I am “ME”, a strong, determined, passionate and fearless woman. I’m also a wife, mother and author (Tranquility in Colour – an adult colouring in book) an entrepreneur all rolled into one! When I’m not at my desk I love baking, gardening and doing arts and crafts with my daughter. I’m a huge fan of Jay Shetty so I love getting my daily dose of motivation by watching his videos.
My burning desire to always achieve success in everything that I pursue comes from my role models, my Mum and Dad who always transformed a crisis into an Opportunity. So, I am a proud Opportunist!
Having worked in the legal industry for over 20 years, my in-depth knowledge and experience enables me to assist legal professionals in an efficient manner. My reputation for “prettifying” documents exceeds me and I often hear – “It’s like magic!”. My “eagle eye” is my superpower. My areas of expertise are formatting legal contracts and creating standard documents, legal transcription and proofreading and editing (I am the spelling and grammar police!).
PMV Virtual Assistants
PMV Virtual Assistants was born a year after Pam had her daughter, in 2009. At the time, in Pam’s “Jar of Life” work, family and play were the biggest rocks. As Denzel Washington says: “Do what you have to do, to do what you want to do.” Pam worked her full-time job and ran PMV as her “side hustle” for ten years. The year 2020 marked the beginning of a new chapter for Pam running the business full-time. Now this “side hustle” is a unique legal virtual assistant company providing specialised, efficient and cost effective legal secretarial services to small and medium sized law firms and some of the “Big Five” law firms in South Africa.
The team at PMV becomes yours and shares your vision. The team is made up of graduates and individuals who have been in the legal industry for “many moons”. Our graduates train hard and our training program makes sure that they are prepared and knowledgeable enough to handle anything you can throw at them. You get to enjoy the benefits of having a superhero for an assistant. An incredibly trained and collaborative work force = Supercharged Productivity.
They maintain high standards of quality at all times and deliver timeously. PMV believes that each client’s needs are specific and not a “one size fits all”. PMV has plans that work for everyone.
The Knowledge Exchange Program
We believe that everyone has the potential to be successful. KEP focuses on training and upskilling graduates and creating opportunities in or out of PMV, depending on what they are passionate about. With the vast experience, skillset and leadership of the founder Pam Padayachee, we ensure and maintain consistent levels of excellence and professionalism.
