About Us

MINT COMMUNICATIONS

Mint Communications focuses on private education marketing. Since 2012, we have been connecting parents and their children with international schools via events, and digital and social media. Visit the Mint Communications company website here.

 

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO 

We believe that there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to education. Every child is unique so parents have the responsibility of finding the school that best fits their child and their aspirations for him or her. Therefore the Private & International School Fairs were organised for the sole purpose of bringing together schools and parents in convenient locations in the country. We want parents to be armed with the right information, from the right sources, to ultimately find the right school for their children. 

 

We strive to provide parents with accurate and authoritative information on preschools, international and private schools, pre-university programmes and learning centres in Malaysia, thereby enabling and empowering them to make informed decisions about their children’s education. Comprehensive information on private schools in Malaysia can now be found on www.EducationDestinationMalaysia.com.

 

THE MINT TEAM

Mint Communications is led by two individuals, whose efforts, collectively and synergistically, culminate in Mint’s powerful, multi-channel media platform, serving as a comprehensive vehicle for education providers and parents of prospective students. Nickie Yew and Michele Lam have more than two decades of combined experience in media specifically in print, online and events. Both Nickie and Michele worked for a multinational media and research company headquartered in the UK before setting up Mint in 2012. Together, they manage a team of writers, designers, researchers, account managers and web developers.
