About Us

red desk Virtual AssistantsBefore setting up red desk in 2008 I worked in a variety of roles mainly in creative industries.  I spent three years as Production Assistant on the Millennium Show at The Dome and then moved on to working for AMV.BBDO advertising agency, co-ordinating several advertising accounts and large scale international conferences.

These fast paced environments were a very good learning ground for gathering the skills required to be a Virtual Assistant and I thrive on being able to effectively help my clients at busy times and being able to turn my hand to whatever needs doing.

The best thing about being a VA is the varied nature of the work, I’m learning  new technologies and ways of working every day, so it never gets dull.

Mel Pretorius red desk virtual assistantIn my former life before becoming a Virtual Assistant, I worked within the financial services industry.  I spent over 10 years in Office Management and Executive Assistant roles supporting teams of between 25 and 50 people.  The wide variety of duties I covered in my roles and skills I gained from running various committees at Thomson Reuters has more than prepared me for the world of the Virtual Assistant.

I love networking, meeting new people and the wide client base that I work with.  I enjoy working onsite one day and then remotely on Social Media the next.  I was a member of BNI (Business Network International) for 18 months and networked with similar-minded professionals which has proved fruitful to the business.
