Jam started off as my mentor, then manager at Intel. He took a chance on me, giving me the opportunity to expand my skills and experiences through a role in his team. His leadership style is built on transparency, integrity, openness, determination and being decisive. His strength lies in his innate ability to listen, coach and guide whilst simultaneously giving his team the opportunity to take risks and explore new ideas. He is not only a great leader, but an amazing human being as well – he genuinely cares, takes the time to check in, and identifies ways to motivate his team to help them excel professionally and personally. I am immensely grateful for having had the chance to work for Jam, and I would work for him again in a heartbeat.
Jams was my manager, mentor and friend for over 3 years at Intel. While the other commendations speak for themselves, I believe Jam’s true shine comes from the investment he makes in each and every individual in his organisation. He takes the time to build his organisation around individuals. He takes time to create space for both growth and conflict. He takes time to nurture and rarely relishes in credit. As a result, he built one of the most diverse teams I have the privilege to be a part of. Having a leader like Jams in my corner allowed me to take risks, fail fast and succeed. It allowed marketing to showcase real value to our stakeholders, and allowed us to stretch beyond our job scopes. Any organisation would find his style refreshing and beneficial to the team and business at large.
Jam is a formidable leader, a visionary and a kind soul. It’s a rare combination of leadership traits in today’s business environment. I am very, very fortunate to have worked with Jam as a client, and later as my manager. Jam could truly “see” people’s potential beyond the facade. He brings out the best in others and inspired many to bring their A game to work. Jam role-modeled and taught me values that I strive to uphold: integrity, honesty, fairness to all, courage, resilience and adaptability. In the past 5 years working with Jam, I watched him turned ideas into gold, built a dream team with diverse talent, and empowered the team to develop experimental projects like digital hub command center into a world-class digital analytics hub. Jam is the real deal, I look forward to be working with him again in future.
Jamshed is an inspiring leader who demonstrated his success by motivating a diverse and high-performance marketing team to achieve business goals through sales-attributable marketing strategies. He empowered me to step outside of my comfort zone and to believe in my capabilities so I could achieve new heights in my career. As a manager, he is authentic, trustworthy and supportive, who always genuinely cares for his staff. I also admire his breadth of experiences in sales and digital marketing, strong customer orientation and tenacity in adapting to changes.
I had the pleasure of working with Jam for over a year and he was a fantastic partner to me. There were many marketing initiatives we collaborated on. Jam ensured that every global program was actually meaningful to our customers in local markets. He was able to parse out the valuable insights from the generic ones and customize programs that directly drove brand and business results. Part of the success of these programs came through the strong relationships he fostered with media partners, never-been-done-before innovations he pioneered in the marketplace, and the ability to quantify the impact of his programs through his team’s mastery of data and analytics. Jam is also a strong, motivational leader of a high-performing, cross-functional team. The leadership and way-of-working principles he instils in his team make them a dream to work with.
Jam is probably one of the smartest guys in digital marketing I know. His resilience, dedication to the brand and wit is truly admirable. He was juggling 11 agencies when we first met. Not long after he was managing a full-fledged command centre. Which drove business results from optimizing media to spend to capitalizing on real-time moments.
Jamshed was a client to my business at Twitter. At a time when brands were just starting to understand how best to use social and Twitter in particular, Jamshed stood out not only because of his profound understanding of how the platform could be harnessed, he was an advocate within his organisation and went on in fact, to educate and inspire us, the vendor side sellers, on how marketers looked to curate, mine and use social data to take smarter, on- the- pulse decisions for their brands and business. He was very knowledgeable and, on many occasions, has shared his experience and knowledge to inspire Twitter’s wider community of marketers. As a client, Jamshed was always clear on his asks and can be counted on to offer a fair assessment of our work – the good, bad and ugly. In this regard, working with his team and him meant that we often felt like we were part of the same team and therefore owned the success kpis together. I’ve come to learn that this is a characteristic of Jamshed’s leadership. He is inclusive, puts people first; as a person, he is smart yet curious, as a professional, he is commanding with his knowledge and experience yet empowering all at once. I will recommend Jamshed for any organisation looking for an inspiring leader, bold thinker, problem solver and someone who gets it done.
A very sharp and inspiring leader I’ve known in my career. Jamshed is always at the forefront of digital innovation and very creative in applying the new technology to marketing and data analysis at Intel. I had a privilege working closely with him at Omnicom Media Group when Intel was pioneering the social and mobile media buying in Asia. His humble attitude and management style influenced me when defining the role model in leadership. His speeches at conferences are compelling and deliver a clear message to the audience. I genuinely appreciate his mentorship in marketing, technology and leadership that motivated me a lot to grow and develop the more advanced skillset.
Jamshed is deeply passionate person and have in depth knowledge about Digital world. Got chance to work with him and he had demonstrated high level of teamwork, professionalism, creative and leadership abilities. His abilities to think out of box & innovative approach made him successful. I wish him all the best!!
I had the privilege of working under Jamshed’s leadership at Intel for several years. He is an encouraging manager and digital thought leader, that brings extensive experience with data led insights into the work that he delivers. His passion for digital transformation and his desire to help people and organisations is what makes Jamshed such a unique and special person to work with. He cares not just about what he does, but also why it is being done. He challenges the status quo and is not afraid to do things the hard way. He has drive and determination for excellence in the work that he does and that of the team. It was a pleasure working with you Jam, I look forward to when we can work together again!
Jam is an excellent marketing leader who stood out to me in my scan of 20+ marketing organizations with regional/global teams in Singapore. Two key reasons: 1) he successfully demonstrated the value of marketing to the rest of the organization, and was therefore able to pioneer something and to continuously push frontiers; and 2) contributes generously to industry education and to younger talents – always giving back to the marketing community in Singapore. Jam has been a real gem, and I would love to work with Jam again one day!
I had the pleasure of working with Jamshed while we were both at Intel, and during that time he represented all that you expect from a marketing professional. First, he clearly laid out the strategy for his team. The strategy was measurable, and clear to a broad range of stakeholders. Second, Jamshed was open to taking calculated risks. For example, Jamshed spearheaded the development of Intel’s first digital command center. Several attempts were made at building something similar in the past, but Jamshed was successful in articulating the value, the ROI and how the command center would continue to evolve. It has become a model for how other digital command centers are built — either inside or outside of Intel. Lastly, Jamshed’s approach to marketing is closely aligned to what the business wants to achieve. While on its face that statement might appear to be a no brainer, in my experience the linkage between marketing and sales is not always made. That lack of linkage typically results in a lack of marketing funding and trust within the organization. Jamshed’s reputation within the sales organization was always that of top-notch performance and partnership. In summary, Jamshed is the very epitome of a world-class marketer. I enjoyed working with him then, and hope we have an opportunity to partner in the future.
Jam is a marketing leader with strong business acumen and a sharp, creative mind. He has a constant pulse on customer behaviour and digital media habits and can marry business objectives with creative approaches to deliver real breakthrough impact in a crowded digital space. He is also a true pleasure to work with – friendly, honest, and brings out the best in those he works with.
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 a 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 honour 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 create 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.
Jamshed is a fantastic example of tireless dedication, great hardware (knowledge about Marketing and the utilisation of Social Media Channels) and great software (connecting with people). He is truly a rare breed in a world of digital marketers who is all-rounded yet grounded. I would not hesitate to work with him again if given the opportunity to do so.
I have known Jamshed for 3 years now and he is by far, one of the best regional social media experts for Intel. He also demonstrates the ability to deliver relevant and accurate information, analysis and insight on technology trends. He uses social media to tailor marketing campaigns to promote products with the highest revenue potential. He works well with the sales team and has a keen understanding of marketing principles and practical applications. Jamshed is a talented writer in all subjects that he is passionate about. I thoroughly enjoy his blogs on technology and life. He cultivates rich stories for articles and promotes goodwill through publicity events. He has high integrity and is passionate about his field. I would recommend him to any employer as he is someone who moves the dial in any organisation.
I had the great pleasure and opportunity to work with Jamshed when he was serving the Fujitsu account. As a business partner, Jamshed is one that you can rely on and always ready to support and go beyond his call of duty. As an individual, Jamshed possess this passion and drive in him that I admire and respect, and I also had the opportunity to further explore and discuss on the infinite possibilities of social media – whom I regard as a Guru in this aspect. With all the positive qualities that Jamshed illustrates either at work or on a personal level, he is definitely an asset to any organisation.
Jamshed is someone who i look up a lot at Intel. Not only he is a great mentor, he is a fantastic colleague & a friend at the same time. For someone who take great pride & passion in his work, he is truly a gem to any company.
Though I did not have the benefit of working with Jamshed directly, he is still remembered for the work done at the H & R Johnson in re-branding exercise of Granito to Marbonite. Marbonite, is by far the most preferred brand by customers who are looking for Vitrified tiles. Not only, at HRJ, but also at Institute of Technology & Management, he has been my senior. There is no doubt in saying that the initial start given to the Brand Marbonite by Jamshed and the team has helped in achieving the status, it enjoys today and we are sure there is a lot to achieve in future. I wish him all the best for future.
I worked with Working with Jamshed has been a delight. His discipline at his work and ability to push creativity is what makes him a true partner. I first started working with Jamshed when we were coming up with a Digital strategy for the Region and his keen sense of judgment and strategy helped drive this forward in many ways. His ability to drive projects forward and an attitude that every problem has a solution that just needs to be found is instrumental in pushing many projects over the line. Most certainly an outstanding partner to work with.
I have worked with Jamshed during my time running the x86 server business at Sun Asia Pacific. He is a standout partner for Sun and has done a fantastic job elevating the joint marketing programs for Intel and Sun. He was very flexible and motivated and worked with Sun’s sometimes inwardly focused marketing processes to achieve outcomes everyone can see. Jamshed is an outstanding marketing professional and I would hire him without hesitation.
