The Centre for Student Involvement and Careers, in partnership with the UBC Hub of Ten Thousand Coffees, is excited to bring you a virtual mentorship and networking opportunity to connect with UBC Alumni, Paul Lambert. This event is open to all students.

Paul is a Partner at Area 120, Google’s internal incubator and early-stage investment fund. Prior to Area 120, Paul was an entrepreneur and Product Manager at both Google and Twitter.

In 2009, Paul founded Learndot while a UBC student and was CEO for 5 years. In 2014 after Learndot was acquired by a Silicon Valley company, Paul moved to California. Soon after the acquisition closed he joined Twitter as a Product Manager and in 2016 moved to Google to lead the Machine Learning strategy for Gmail. His team developed Smart Compose, Smart Reply, and Nudging for Gmail, among other well-known features that are now used by over a billion people. Paul and his work have been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The New Yorker.
