Graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Biotechnology and majoring in Genetics, Veena started as a medical journalist and quickly made Editor just before her 26th birthday for one of the first English medical aesthetic publications in Asia.
Within a year of joining Mindvalley and with no sales or marketing background, Veena kick-started the external sales department from almost nothing to a constant revenue stream and profitability.
Seven years on, and with a knack and need to dabble in everything (and according to Mindvalley founder, Vishen Lakhiani – “turns everything she touches into gold”), Veena’s teams include:
Mindvalley Affiliate Program, which manages external sales (primarily affiliate partnerships and media ventures);
And Mindvalley Publishing, a team in charge of signing new authors, managing their accounts, and creating content to be sold via Mindvalley’s multiple consumption platforms.
Through her leadership and having worked in almost every team in the company, Veena has plans to double the business every year while setting new standards for customer support, client management, affiliate partnerships and of course – getting game-changing authors to showcase their work on the Mindvalley platform.
With a never-give-up positive attitude and always striving for more, Veena believes nothing is impossible and along with sharing the Mindvalley mission, she spends her free time exploring passion projects, one of which is to see a holistic education system developed in Malaysia.
Affiliate Account Manager
After a wonderful 22 years in British Columbia, Canada, I decided to hang up the suit and tie in the banking world and join the Mindvalley Affiliate team over here in Kuala Lumpur!
As you might imagine from somebody that dropped everything they had and moved to Asia, I’m a big people person; nothing gets me more energized than being in a room full of people I don’t know and seeing where these new relationships may take me.
I’m having a blast as an affiliate manager here and it’s so amazing to be rubbing shoulders with people who are actively helping educate the world at a higher level.
If you want me to answer your email immediately, just make sure to include stereotypical Canadian stuff (hockey highlights, snowboarding edits, maple syrup commercials) and I’m sure we’ll get along just fine 🙂
Ainur Yermagambetova (Ainura)
Affiliate Launch Manager
My name is Ainur (cool people can call me Ainura), and I come from Pavlodar city of Kazakhstan. I moved to Malaysia alone when I was 17, and that was the best decision I’ve ever made. It helped me become the independent, out-going and super friendly person I am now.
I am an Affiliate Launch Manager, and I LOVE it. I like building close relationships with all affiliates, so make sure you drop me a message or two – even if you just want to say Hi 🙂
I also like like cats, Harry Potter books and a good old Cabernet Sauvignon.
