Portia Malatji


Portia first arrived in Johannesburg in 1996. Stepping out of the taxi with a suitcase and just R30, she began her life-long entrepreneurial journey. Soon after starting her formal career in administration, she discovered her love for training. Addressing the issue of over-indebtedness and unemployment by making information simple, easy-to-understand and practical, she was able to connect with schools, colleges, employees and communities around the country.

Today, she continues working on making her dream a reality. Inspired by her vision to train 1 000 000 individuals in financial education, Portia seeks to change the world through skills development. For her, it is all about empowering communities!

Portia is the founder and CEO of the renowned PM Skillshouse Training company – one of the most successfully informal financial training companies in South Africa.
