      I always bump into Jamshed at conferences, I’m there to soak up the knowledge and he is the powerful speaker on stage. A seasoned veteran (how does he maintain that youthful glow and electric curiosity about life?) of social and digital in APAC & Japan, Jamshed’s work at Intel has been incredibly inspiring for those of us that follow him as thought leader and the brand in their game changing social media innovations. We then got to work briefly on a small project with each other and his social agency extending the relationship further. A devoted family man who always inspires me with his work-life balance and love of the Singapore staycation to take power breaks between work projects; he’s now built and launched the Intel Digital Hub in APAC and Japan. His new move to take all digital and social in-house from Singapore with listening and amplification will be a catalyst for change in the region

      It was an honor to work with Jamshed Wadia. He is without a doubt one of the top marketers I have had a pleasure to partner with. Jamshed's knowledge of the industry and his ability to learn and adapt in the fast-paced environment are exceptional. He was one of the social media trailblazers in Asia who recognized the shift in the way customers communicate and created meaningful social media strategies for Intel to adapt in real-time. This led to a number of record-breaking campaigns and initiatives, and later on to building sustainable communities and long-term customer relationships. I will not only recommend Jamshed to any business as a valuable resource, but I truly hope I'll get a chance to work with him again one day. Companies are always looking for extraordinary leaders, and Jamshed is one of them

      A charismatic speaker, generous advisor and all-round great guy, Jam continues to be one of my Top Speakers for SES digital marketing events in Asia. Having worked with Jam on both the SES Hong Kong and Singapore events in the past 6 months, I am always delighted to watch him present his exciting and dynamic content to our various audiences. Engaging and transforming even the mutest of crowds into an auditorium of impressed chatter and inquisitive questioning, Jam simply is a joy to work with. I know that I can trust him to turn up and deliver without the need for my assistance or guidance, whilst still graciously adhering to my timelines and editing his works to suit my needs – sometimes even at a moment’s notice ;-) I always look forward to seeing Jam and hope to work with him again soon.less
