“Jamaal’s a brilliant coach and social networking expert. He’s fun and funny, too. A joy to work with.”
“Bidding farewell to 2009. Jamaal I must admit you are one of the great people I met this year and I’m very grateful our paths crossed.”
“Thanks for a great conference! I think I’m in love with Web 2.0 ;)”
Elinor Jane Lindhardt Speirs
“When I decided to start a business from home, I wasn’t sure how I was going to get it off the ground. It was by pure co-incidence that I met Jamaaludeen on Facebook. After sharing his ideas with me, I decided to do a course on Social Media Marketing via Skype! This was ideal, as I could keep an eye on my three year old son while doing the sessions. The course itself has given me insight into Web 2.0, on how to use Social Media to promote my business. Within a few days of applying what I’ve learnt, I had generated so much interest in my business. Thank you Jamaaludeen! Your creativity, and energy never ceases to amaze me.”

“WOW awesomeness great comprehensive, objective, logical and making lots of sense. I need a professional like you to get the blog sorted, not even a discussion point, I don’t have the skills.”

“Jamaaludeen Khan is a creative and dynamic professional who understands Web 2.0 and the marketing and business-promotion opportunities that new social networking and other online technologies provide.”

“…I just wanted to thank you for your very informative posts and Web 2.0 / Web 3.0 info that you always provide. I must admit, I read them all. Your dedication to assisting others navigate through the rapidly evolving web is to be commended.”

“Jamaal did work for Encyclomedia’s PR Success Strategies conference in November 2008. We first made contact only a few days before the conference. In the rush of final preparations there was no time for a full briefing, but it really wasn’t necessary as Jamaal had everything sorted.
Jamaal’s professionalism combines with his warm, friendly nature, which makes it an absolute pleasure to work with him. Jamaal and his team recorded the PR Success Strategies conference and gained very valuable social media coverage for Encyclomedia.
I won’t hesitate to use the services of Jayz Internet Solutions again and I’ve recommended their services to several contacts.” Robynn Burls, Encyclomedia.co.za
“Jamaaludeen is one of the experts I know of Web 2.0. He has helped me gain an understanding of how to use the social networking tools effectively and efficiently which has had a tremendous impact on my company and marketing it online. With his assistance, I realised how “small” the world can be :-) and how the world wide web impacts and aids marketing your business online.
During the time I have worked with him, we shared elements of business as well as personal growth which has added to the values I have implemented in my business.
It gives me great pleasure to write this recommendation. Jamaaludeen has high standards of integrity, honesty and faith and integrates this effectively in his business.”

“Attending seminars and workshops that claim to explain what Web 2.0 is, and why we should care, has become a bit of a game for me. In my experience, one of two things usually happens. Everyone in the room is already steeped in Web 2.0 and is a social media practitioner in some shape or form – so it’s a case of preaching to the converted.
Alternatively it’s what I call the furrowed brow outcome – people leave the event so confused and overwhelmed by what it all means and the only take away is that they need to start a blog, but they are not entirely sure why.
Not so with Jamaaludeen Kahn, owner of Jayz Internet Solutions. I tagged along to his free Web 2.0 seminar at the Bandwidth Barn in Cape Town last week to see him in action, as in my opinion he is one of the few people who can successfully explain Web 2.0 concepts, and how we should be using them.
A natural-born teacher, Jamaal combines some great audio-visual material, personal anecdotes and tips about reference material to check out. All through the seminar his Twitter and Facebook feeds are going ballistic on the side of the screen. Friday’s seminar was the 2 hour speed version of what usually takes a day, but I can see how companies and individuals trying to get their head around Web 2.0 can benefit from the full training.
I particularly like Jamaal’s common sense approach to Web 2.0 and social media. The reality is that Web 2.0 provides “new channels for how humans [already] communicate”. So the bottom line for me is, use what makes sense, phase in new channels of communication, and definitely take an integrated approach to your communications plan.”

“I just wanted to send you a formal ‘thank you’ for all your help and support with Flying Solo. You have been so generous with your time, skills, advice and energy not only at the event but also before and after it.
I meant what I said when I told you that you are a different person from the Jamaal I met when I got onto VeloCITI. It is awesome to see you developing into an expert-entrepreneur-moviemaking-trainer! I was particularly impressed – as were the delegates on Sat – at your talk on web 2.0 and the long tail – but also with all your live blogging, tweeting, posting, photographing and videoing.
It is people like you who make being an entrepreneur SO much more interesting than working for a corporate boss. So thank you once again!”
Jo Duxbury, Freelancentral.co.za
“I’ve known Jamaal since early 2007 when we were on the VeloCITI training course together – a programme for companies who had been identified as high potential. Jamaal’s company, www.Jayz.co.za, was well-picked! Jamaal is driven, focused and operates with the utmost honesty, generosity and integrity. We have kept in touch since VeloCITI and when a collaboration opportunity arose in 2008 (the Flying Solo Unconferences), I jumped at the chance to work with Jamaal. His passion and enthusiasm for online and social media is infectious and as a gifted trainer, his talents lie in teaching people about these fields in a simple, accessible and effective way. He’s also successfully turning his interest in social media coverage into an arm of his business and can often be found, camera in hand, at industry events or live-Tweeting the proceedings. Work with Jamaal – you won’t regret it.”
Jo Duxbury, Freelancentral.co.za
