I’m a marketer, TED Talk connoisseur, and Swiftie. I read with kids and share brand stories with people who may not be kids. I work fast and furiously with a RBF (resting bliss face) because there’s food at the end of the tunnel.
Before I became Roger Lam the businessman, I was Mr. Lam the assistant kindergarten teacher. I fell in love with marketing because it’s constantly evolving, requires empathy and creativity, and is actually a lot like education.
If you truly understand your (customer/student), you can develop an amazing (product/lesson plan) and communicate it with a (message/delivery style) that resonates.
My greatest weakness are french fries. My greatest strengths are connecting dots and bridging passions. In my past life, I co-founded a children’s literacy non-profit, wrote content for ed-tech startups, and hosted digital marketing workshops. I continue to practice growth marketing, content marketing, and social media management in the education, tech, and food industries.
Today, I am an Associate Product Marketing Manager (APMM) on Google’s central growth marketing team, focused on SEO. I also serve on the board of directors for the non-profit I started 6 years ago, Students Expanding American Literacy (SEAL). In my free time, you can find me stuffing my face on Instagram as @rogerlamchop or writing my first children’s book.
I’m always happy to chat over a cup of coffee or queso! Let’s meet and eat!
