Afnan Idris, Professional Development Chair | American Marketing Association
“It is such an honor to be writing this recommendation. I finally had the privilege to meet Jeff in New Orleans where he presented at the 34th Annual Collegiate Conference for the AMA. His charisma and personality shined throughout the session. His message stirred emotion as he inspired his audience with an exceptionally powerful, professional and entertaining presentation.
Jeff has a unique ability to leverage several social media platforms to foster and develop significant relationships with his audience. Despite his many successes, awards, and recognition for his social media mastery, Jeff remains humble and genuine. He consistently extends himself to his 3500+ LinkedIn and Twitter contacts to help them meet their personal goals.
Michelle Reyes, Business Consultant | Media Planning and Online Marketing
Jeff was a lively, guest speaker in my Media Planning course at Florida International University. In a refreshing manner, he spoke about how my classmates and I in the advertising business, should know that branding is an integral part to a product; however, he integrated the idea that we (the audience) must brand ourselves to be successful. He also shared insights on what to do and what not to do on social media and how to important LinkedIn can be. Speaking with the audience, he also asked for volunteers and felt it was equally important to have the audience's attention and the audience have his attention. So with humor, he kept us engaged.
Danie Velastegui, FIU Student | LinkedIn 101
Great public speaker. Gave us a bigger inside into LinkedIn and the value of networking. I'll recommending him 100%.
Daniel Gomez, AdFed Vice President | AdFed FIU
Mr. Jeff Zelaya is an outstanding public speaker and out reach individual to the academic community. Jeff came to FIU during the Fall 2011 semester and gave his "A Brand Called You" lecture series about the importance of Linkedin.com. All students were raving about how his insight will help them now and for when they graduate. I highly recommend Jeff for public event because of his enthusiasm and motivation to push the audience through the lecture and participation. Keep doing the great work Jeff
